Guys check out this new gamplay video from the show that is a direct footage of the PC version at 4K 60FPS, personally I think it looks amazing.

My buddy who played it said it is basically Horizon 3 with better graphics, full customization of the car parts, plus you get cool stories and missions. Basically he said it kills Rivals and is better than Horizon 3(which he is a fan of both those titles).

Since I am also a fan of Horizon and Rivals I think I am going to get it.

This game has the same (new era NFS's) shitty handling... so unnatural arcade... even imperfect Horizon 3 is miles ahead (im talking about the feel of the driving).

Hmm.. I just want a racing game, not a Fast&Furious movie. I sincerely miss way, way back in the day when NFS was based on physics and the spectacular crashes (for the time) were the highlight of the game. That's all I ever want from NFS, good physics engine, good balance between simulation and arcade but leaning towards simulation, good handling, and spectacular crashes. It really has changed into a completely different game.

If only they made the handling like Underground 2. EA don't understand what fans want.

Its been bad for along over a decade now. Even the original Underground games were just awful. People just have fond memories of it because they were young and the actual pimping out of the cars was the highlight. The actual gameplay and the handling in those games were horrendous though. It wasn't fun arcadey handling and it wasn't at all realistic either.

The only time the series shined was when Criterion made NFS Hot Pursuit and Most Wanted last gen.

I agree with spacemanjupiter above too. Bizarrely the first game, The Need For Speed, had the best crashes ever. There was weight to them and the sounds of the crash and every bounce were great too.

And why does the Frostbite engine always have rain drops sitting on the car when there isn't cloud in the sky and in the middle of a desert lol?

About the game

    SplitTongue @MikeManiac61: Screw that. The day such a controversial shit flick airs i'm going to move to a 3rd world country with no tv, cinemas or internet. I've had enough. (2 Hours ago)

    MikeManiac61 @SplitTongue: that sounds funny though, but alas people would get their panties in a twist over it. (3 Hours ago)

    SplitTongue Not long ago, I've seen a funny fake movie poster of Martin Luther King being played by a white actor "for the sake of diversity". Can you imagine the backlash this would be getting? (4 Hours ago)

    SplitTongue Tbh I think the backlash is deserved. Fans asked for a ww2 setting, not an alternative past ww2 setting. If they wanted their designers to get creative they should've sticked to 2143 maybe ? (4 Hours ago)

    droezelke @GriftGFX: No, that is my whole point. If they put women and minorities in there, and that becomes a controversy (Remember Sarkeesian), than I will care. No reverse sexism and racism bs. All equal. (4 Hours ago)

    aphex187 Watched the Frags video again which shows it in slow motion and it does look nuts but kinda intrigues me tbh. (4 Hours ago)
