Hmmm not looking as good as I remembered graphically but I was never overly interested anyhow simply due to it being another bag of ideas from previous games all thrown together really fast (so it seems). But now that driveclub is pushed back this will sadly be the only launch window racer fix : /

I don't remember the car models having so many jaggies either.

The art style is really well done though, something this series has been good at off and on.

Awesome. And recent news that PS4 version is looking better then the PC version...pretty sweet. Looks great though. Open world, day night cycle, weather, gameplay of hot pursuit, actually looks fun...best next gen racer.

It's 30fps and it's an arcade racer. It's not the best anything.

There are quite a few leaps being made here.

To make consoles look better, I guess. Just a guess though.

No real defense of a mediocre arcade racer huh?

Best next gen arcade racer? It's the ONLY next gen arcade racer lol. Obviously forza will be far superior in terms of actual gameplay etc but that's apples and oranges.

Comparing forza and NFS is like comparing CoD and BF, both are trying to be very different things.

One is fun, one is not. One is doing more technically, one is not. Hence one is better...NFS.

So the forza series has a track record of the highest rated racing series because it is not fun to play huh? If you can't appreciate that genre fine but to act like its a bad game b/c of personal taste... I guess the CoD fans are right that it's better than BF games because it's more fun to play huh?

Also, for someone so picky about the forza car models you sure are lenient on this game' seven worse car models ; )

Picky about the forza car models? Me? No. They're great. Now, Picky about the god awful IQ and not meeting next gen expectations for a 1080p title no less...yes.

Lol ok well enjoy your 30 fps dumbed down rehash of hot pursuit and most wanted mash up with Michael bay style races/presentation. I have to admit, it's pretty hard for the lazy twats at turn 10 to compete with a winning formula like that : D

I sure forza 5 will be awful reviews and NFS will be nothing but AAA reviews ; )

One every year and the same few ideas rehashed in slightly different ways. Not too far off.

Oh boy that is one helluva stretch...

Plus, if it were the Call of Duty of racing games, it would run at 60 fps.

Wat the fuck happened to need for speed?

Lol, you really don't see the NFS franchise as a series of recycled ideas? Honestly? I mean the CoD comparison is obviously just a joke (can't really compare such different genres) but the overall idea is not that much of a stretch. I would say the 2k basketball games and madden are also in that camp, nearly the same game each year with very minor (if any) improvements. I love b ball and 2k games so I don't bitch but I'll be glad to admit it.

As for NFS I don't really care that much i just think its fun to fuck with Korn as his anti forza trolling is just kind of fun to mess with. I know, I know... Blah blah...

You just described the best need for speed games.

That's true. Anyone remember the earlier Fifa titles for current gen consoles? PC versions were ps2 ports...

Probably didn't want to spend the extra time or money porting the next gen versions to the PC I guess. Same thing for nba 2k14 and most sports games. I guess NFS fell under that umbrella.

I very much doubt it would require much effort to uncap the frame rate.

Oops forgot it had the same engine. Good point.

Another "next-gen" game which looks like a mediocre X360 title.

That's nothing new. They are still doing that even with the latest Fifa.

I don't think sports games are very popular on PC. I think NFS sells fairly well though. And honestly... this looks more like platform politics than anything else.
