Sorry Criterion, i'm not interested anymore.

The only problem i have with this is it looks like it's trying to be an alternative to hot persuit or the run...but we've been there done that now. Need for speed has moved to an old idea (most wanted), and this is doing something we've seen before...i'm not sure i want to play either. But if a had faith in one team it would be criterion.

There's a difference between "it's being done before" and being done well. This game game will offer superior graphics and physics compared to any EA or Criterion efforts.

Gameplay is king, if it's better than the games mentioned whats the problem?

Criterion hit it out the park with hot persuit. Gonna be a tough one to beat imo, both visually and gameplay wise. Paradise was shit though due to losing a ton of the greatness from past burnout titles. We'll see i guess. This just kinda feels like they're tring to compete in a race, but turned up 2 years too late...i dunno.

^^ Hot Pursuit was great! That's why i said Day One...maybe...if it's not better = no buy.

I have a feeling the gameplay though is going to feel completely different to HP.

Physics are going to be very close to Forza Motorsport but you can make it more arcadey than you can in Motorsport but you can still make it as real is Motorsport.

Hot Pursuit was most definitely not a hit out of the park it might have been a great game but it had many short comings.

I don't know that if you are making a more arcady style game, that it would be wise to implement complex physics like in the Forza series. Maybe it will work.
But there is nothing in this dev diary that makes me more interested than the interest I've got in Most Wanted. Pretty sure MW will have the better graphics as it is using Frostbite 2.0.
It will have better graphics on PC not on consoles.

Hot Pursuit wasn't free roaming. I loved that game but im sure this going to be much deeper. I read that there are hidden barns around the game world with old classics stored in them to unlock. The ownership of your car will play more of a roll, there is a day to night cycle, there is a cockpit view etc. Really this is closer to Test Drive then NFS.

It's not a Arcadey game with complexed physics it's a game that using assists and other options can be played like a arcade game or at the same time a simulation game.

Don't know. I'm more than willing to see it being great but it doesn't sound like much they have probably tried to do for each game before it. Even forza 1.

If this can be something different to the other racers on the market... - I'll pay more attention.

They are the team who was behind the Grid and Dirt. Actually Lead Designer and Director of Grid are founder the Playground Studio.
