Need For Speed Most Wanted: 3 images

Need For Speed Most Wanted: 3 images

Enjoy these three new images of Need For Speed: Most Wanted, focusing on the nice Toyota Supra. Except that little changement, the screens still show a game that is definitively under our expectations for a next-gen game.



Thanks to MorphBZH for the tip.

What can I say, it looks like EA. It's sad when someone can see a screenshot of a game and tell its made by EA just because of the low res textures and generally bad graphics, EA has built that reputation and I don't think they give one crap about our complaints.

They don't give a shit about anything, except money of course. And as long as people will buy their games, I don't see why they would change their minds...

EA, keep your heads up. One day people will forget about innovation and gorgeous graphics and realize you guys had the right formula all along.......CARTOONY GRAPHICS ON EVERY GAME ALL RUNNING ON NHL96's ENGINE

come on people whats all this bitching about!!!! give them a break goddamn it!!!! they are just getting used to the hardware so u could bet that the next need for speed hopefully "UNDERGROUND 3" will be out of this world with nex-gen graphics. so with this game should give them a head start to the next one and hopefully they learned many things with the 360 harware

As far as I know, PGR3 has been in development for the same amount of time and look at the results. You can't even compare them, PGR3 is in a totally different league. EA need to stop focusing on RELEASING games but instead focus on producing quality titles. This is hardly an improvement over the current generation of games. what a disappointment.

Fortunately people like Bizarre are here to remind us that the X360 is really worth it :)

lol omg....i laugh at EA's graphical quality you guys shouldve seen the new madden 06 next gen shots. they look nothing liek the commercial. Its a shame they bought out the nfl license to subject me to this crap other than that i wouldnt touch an EA game with a ten foot pole ..SOMEONE STOP THIS MENACE before it creates another unimpressive game

Dude listen to your self u have to look at the time line of these games first of all need for speed underground 2 was released two day before project gotham 2 but thats beides the point cause usually game companys finish games months before release which gives them enough time to brain storm on a sequel or whatever. project gotham makers had almost two years of development and so did EA but u have to look at it at WHO HAS MORE MONEY TO SPEND and since MS Game Studios and Bizarre Creation are partners microsoft is the clear winner when it comes to spending money EA on the other hand has alot of money to spend too but EA has ALOT of peolple working and is only fair to say that EA has other problem to deal with with its employers who bitch about ovetime overload and not being paid enough because of it so u get my point and plus dude i'm sure as hell know Bizarre Creation had a developement kit very much earlier than many of the other competion so that gives them a head start on things and got used to the hardware really easy cause of it and like i said i know for sure EA next need for speed underground 3 will be a joy to see

Whats really funny is he doesn't provide a reason why EA games usually suck in the graphics department. Oh yeah a dev kit or the lack of one doesn't lowres textures, bad planning and mediocre designers cause those and poor modeling. Besides that EA is one of or the biggest publisher in the world, why give them dev. kits late?
Commented on 2005-09-10 22:27:31
yea i was just about to mention...isnt EA the biggest publisher in the world. If your talkin bout money i think the people who own madden and an entire football franchise shoudlnt have a problem making a good looking game. They just dont care its that simple. They have the money, the means, and so ona nd so forth. Yet they jus dont care enough to do a good job seeing as how this need for speed is built on a whole new graphics engine than last gens models so it was time for them to start fresh and show us what theyre made of. Obviously its nothing

THE IMAGES ARE FROM THE XBOX version.... NOT the Xbox 360 version. I played the game 4 months ago at E3, and the game looked amazing. These screens are so obviously from the Xbox or PS2 version, it's not even funny.

LOOK at the ground texture in the 1st & 3rd images... can you honestly believe that texture is from the 360 version? The reflections? Check out the old in-game NFS:MW vids from E3!!!!.

I played the game, my colleagues played the game, we all spent about an hour playing the game... it was a visual beast. This was wayy back at E3, with the lame dev hardware they had then. There's no way these screens are from the 360 version of the game. Sure, EA doesn't always deliver the goods on the graphics front, but come on.... I played the game, it looked 400x better than this back in May!!

Ah well... in about 2 months, we'll all taste the pudding : )

EA owns the rights to the biggest licenses in sports, they've also had exclusive rights to certain car manufacturers for quite some time, yet you're telling me they have no money to spend on making need for speed, hence why it's crap? Please. We're talking about the largest games studio in the world, Bizarre Creations has nothing on EA in terms of sheer size and financial power. Besides, even if BC had the dev kit a month or two before EA, they both had the same hardware specs and figures from Microsoft, so they both could plan ahead their pipeline strategy when it comes to polycount, effects, AI, etc. You're trying to tell me that EA was caught off guard and just went "Oh crap, we've no time and money so we have no choice to release a shitty Need For Speed game on X360"? Yeah, I'm sure that's exactly what happened. No, it had nothing to do with the sheer incompetence of the managers and their greed for massive income. Not at all.

The game looks generally...unpolished id say. the physics i witnessed in one video was painfully under developed.
