1. Global Leaderboards: I mean if the main goal is to be Most Wanted shouldn't all playera in the game know the guy/girl on top, friends-only leaderboard is not enough.
2. Photo mode: This feature was in almost every NFS game and when they give us the open world NFS they removed it! i can't tell you how many times i wanted to take a picture of me and friends in the city.
3. Cops in Online sessions: come on this was my most looking forward feature in the game i wanted to have massive chase with my friends online. I was looking forward to online free roam with cops in the city.
4. Camera views; are you kidding me criterion 2 camera views only, PS2 NFS had more camera views; close, far, inside, cockpit etc.
Despite the above am still playing the game because compared to The Run this one is a breakthrough! but still the true savior is Underground 3 a game with full costumization and open world hopefully some time in the future we will see this dream comes true.
