Unfortunately, even when you're dealing with just a download-only product, you are not free of middle-men and other costs.  It would be nice, but that's not close to reality...ask Glenda Adams about that and why Gamerhood prices aren't less than boxed products.  Or why VP's downloads get you a whole whopping $5 off.  Etc.

Well, I believe Ambrosia and Aspyr are using slightly different business models.

I'm still not sure how you think it should be free though. Ambrosia is pricing it where they think they'll make the most profit. Just because it's not worth $25 to you doesn't mean it should be free...

I bought Redline a few nights ago in frustration of a specific game's constant postponement.
I do not feel that I got my money's worth.
The tracks are very basic, the physics of the game are trully appaling.
Not just the basic car handing is off, sometimes you can hit a part of the track in which the car just flies of, as if there was an invisible obstacle or something.
Sounds are very poor too.

The graphics are basic but tolerable though.

I would suggest waiting till the game reaches 2.0 or 1.5 or something, the way it is not, it just seems unfinished.

Remember that coin-op demolition derby game that used to be out?

You drove in reverse, and the other car would smoke when you crushed his radiator...
Oil slicks everywhere...

It was great.
