<B>FANTASTIC</B><br>Volvo leading the way in a interactive automotive experience. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Question: If I walk into a VOLVO dealer will they have the game set up inside a mock car or booth of some sort?

d/l it already last Tuesday but not yet installed (too busy and weather too good to play). Think the 242 would be fun to drive with it's massive oversteer. mmmm no tiresmoke in that picture <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

That is one terrific shot (the wagon on 2 wheels)!

lets hope the S60 concept doesn't handle like it does in the game. Miles of understeer and no low-end grunt, the current S60 has much better handling, either that or I'm a dork to be commenting on the handling aspect of a car in a game. either way, it's kinda fun.

Look at your speedo, i'm sure it will look like you're going really slow, but in reality, you're going a lot faster.

I have the game loaded on my laptop because my other computer is a MAC. Does anyone know how I can get my Xbox 360 controller to work with the game. It is listed in the profiles under controllers but I plug it in and nothing. I hate using the keyboard.

I wonder how many Volvo owners are Mac users?<br>My guess is - more than Volvo thinks there are. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: 'Volvo - The Game' Released on Internet Today (nomar)

As it appears newer Volvo's now also need CTRL-ALT-DEL to regain NAV, radio and other dashboard access while driving so I guess it's all running on MS now? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
