    -Deathrow
    -Loons
    -Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2
    -Nascar Thunder 2003
    -Quantum Redshift
    -Rally Fusion
    -Rocky
    -Sega GT 2002 Holiday Drive (add-on)
    -Splash Down
    -Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003

    Lots of goodies there. I'll try to post some impressions of the Sega GT track & car this evening after I get some rest; I just got Metal Gear Solid 2 last night & I played it for about 7 hours straight. (whoops :b ) Anyway....
    dumps a bottle of Visine into bloodshot eyes...

    I've still probably got another week or so before mine comes. It usually shows up "around" newsstand release date.

    Post how Rally Fusion is, too, if you get a chance to try.

    Rally Fusion isn't as good as Rallisport Challenge in any way. Do you want me to be more specific? [​IMG] The handling doesn't really do it for me...Wait for Colin McRae 3! It's getting rave reviews.
    Sega GT Holiday Drive includes:
    Track:
    -One Christmas-themed (in visuals & music) track.
    Cars:
    -'68 Mustang GT390 (324 HP) with a nifty blue/silver/white paint job
    -'68 Dodge Charger (424 HP) black w/flames
    -'Ground Effect A.K.I.O (591 HP) silver
    It looks to be a stand-alone game that doesn't install onto your current Sega GT game, which stinks because the AI is too easy...I just blew right by them. The ability to add tougher opponents would help, and also it doesn't support custom soundtracks. I was looking forward to this, but it's a disappointment. The track is okay...
