You clearly have no idea what you're talking about. This looks like classic NFS.

I'm glad to see they've stopped pushing that ricer nonsense that Underground started. Can't wait for this one.

Exept the shitty unnecessary plot, remember NFS underground 2? with it's terrible plot and cliché characters. Or nfs prostreet with the stupid "racing scene vibe" Why can't ea just focus on making a good nfs game instead of wasting time and effort on irrelevant bullshit.

Also who the hell wants to play as a character called "G-Mac"? :)

And black box studios doesn't exactly have a good track record.

Sooo... what exactly are you basing this off of, when they've only shown about 5 secs of actual gameplay? Who cares about the throw-away characters and storyline? It's a racing game! Skip the cutscenes if you don't like them. I personally can't wait for this one, as it looks like a proper sequel to Most Wanted. Daytime racing with traffic and cops- Classic NFS!!

I want to know how many cars will be able to race at one time. So far they've only shown one on one. Hope it's at least eight.

the NFS games have some of the worst arcade handling in the business and i cant imagine this being much different. i miss the "hot persuit" days

I think we all miss the "hot pursuit" days. But I'd have to disagree with NFS having the worst arcade handling. At least the cars actually feel like they have some weight and inertia to them and don't just glide and zig-zag all over the track like many other arcade racers such as Midnight Club.

NFS stopped being a good game when they made NFSU 2. Last good NFS game was NFSU. Its down hill all the way to now. Im not judging from the video... it shows notting.

Its the two facts : EA and NFS = Suck (hope its not sucking everytime) But it seems when ever EA has got their hands on sumting, it turns to shit. just my opinion.

Still not 'classic' NFS in any way yet. They need to take the game out of cities, take away the 'gritty' 'realism' and racing movie 'appeal'. We're at the point where all the NFS games blend together and they're all bad.

Handling was great up untill MW, after that it went apeshit. Carbon being the ultimate low.

Kind of looking forward to this one, though Carbon has severely damaged my faith in this franchise and Pro Street just was another horrible mistake.

thats what i hate about it, i'd take a feeling of no weight (which is almost an arcade racer staple...ridge racer anyone) to cars that feel like they weigh a couple huindred tons. NFS games just handle like crap imo. too much excessive weight on the cars

Oh, man I know, like I don't want to play "Too Fast Too Furious" the game, I want to play me some NFS. Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2 on PS2 is STILL where it's at for me!

The fine fine carbrand Audi is the new "gangsta" car, unfortunatly. Replacing the BMW M-series. I'd rather have those wannabe-rappers keep driving around in their BMW's, and leave the Audi image untainted.
What next? Gonna "pimp up" and ruin the Alfa Romeo brand too? I cry.
Oops OT, or not.

Anyway.... EA needs to start realizing that we dont want an NFS game with movies in it, we want a good racing game. Thats it. Screw the actors, screw the story, lol story and cinematics in a racing game, wtf.
Hire more programmers for the money they hired the actors and cinematic artists for, and get some proper damn physics and car handling. Then ill pay attention to another NFS game :)

I mean come on, when the latest GTA game is more simulation than a street-racer, thats just a crazy world.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz If Joe Staten is working on H6, then they have a lot less to worry about as he can steer Halo's cinematic direction very well. (19 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (24 minutes ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Best Xmas game evah! :D [url] (1 Hour ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo definitely relies more on individual skill, because every one is essentially the same character. halo is a still a great idea of a game. i hope they improve on "halo" for 6 (1 Hour ago)
  • docLEXfisti
    docLEXfisti Snatcher was awesome, played it on the European Mega CD (3 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (4 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus never played snatcher, but policenauts has a awesome scenario. (4 Hours ago)
