Graphically stunning, in game?

This apparently runs on Frostbite 2 engine?

It's an EA game thus bullshots ahoy.

Just seen gameplay from E3 and it's very close, graphically it is amazing!

LESSON number 1:- never trust footage unless you mean to tell us your at e3.

Another wrong turn for the Need for Speed franchise. I don't want foot-chases and quicktime-o-ramas in my street racer. Just give me car customization, hot races (on the street!) and the ability to thumb my nose at my friends who didn't make as cool a car as me.

Not normally a fan of NFS but I actually quite like the look of this. I would have preferred the on foot segments to have been played rather than QT events but still thinking this is a nice fresh take on the racing genre.

uggh, looks pretty terribly imo. The racing/escaping in a car looked average, nothing special, but then I am forced to watch the game play out these long on foot movies where I push a button on command every 30 seconds?

My god, gaming is supposed to be becoming MORE interactive. Why are so many games trying to emulate dragons lair lately? I know it is easier than making actual gameplay, but it just looks lazy and makes me totally uninterested in ever playing it. Make the on foot sections interactive, or leave them out altogether, don't half ass it!

So Im not alone ....yuppi ! Personally I think new NFS looks terrible, boring and stupid and the running sequences are just annoying.

Need for speed meets heavy rain. Not interested yet.

About the game


What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke WD2 is more fun than WD1, but it's so easy. Also, the main quests are 'meh'. WD1 had a more focussed story. The story in WD2 is uninspired. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: Don't forget that people are getting sick of CoD, they didn't trust WD anymore after the first. Dishonored 2 got too little PR according to me. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (4 Hours ago)
