WTF is this s**t (sorry for the harsh words...just a bit angry with my childhood series getting worse by every year...ok NFS The Run was better, but still not really a driving game...)...when are they going to bring back the NFS to the way it should be... like NFS III and NFS IV were...Been waiting for that to happen since the first Underground...now starting to loose hope... :(

They should really rethink the car physics...in my opinion controlling a car shouldn't feel like trying to control a flat iron...actually it just feels like the cars don't have any physics at all...it should be something in between Shift and this...not too realistic, but not so unrealistic as this game seems to be...as well as speed...NFS is all about speed, but you should be able to feel it...in this game you definitely see it...but you can't really feel it...and that is because of the flat iron physics...

 

Ok...I hope i'm not the only one who thinks this...

i love the background music! It just brings back the chilling memories of NFS High stakes car room! The song also used in Mass Effect 2 omega club.

And one more quick note.  On last years EA production, Need for Speed, they made it so Forza couldn't include Porsche in their game.  And EA's piece or shit racing title sold little, while Forza kicked ass.  EA has all this money and I won't argue that they make great games like Madden and Fifa, but it's bullshit when they don't let a company like Turn 10 put Porsches in their game because EA has the money to stop them and make a sub par game, like they did earlier this year.  Forza now has Porsches in their game via download, thankfully.  EA puts out some good stuff but they stifle the biz.  Hate em, love em.'

This is the same old stuff we have seen since 1986.  Lame shit.  This game should be a 15 dollar downloadable game, nothing more.   Need for speed has run it's course.  The last one did not sell very well and probably lost money.  This one will do the same.  Racing fans want something realistic like Forza.  This is a silly arcade game and should be 15 dollars on XBOX Live.

'Underground 3' is the one that someone should be making!!.. Or at least the customization level that gave the pasts N4S underground.

For those talking about the music, it was actually used in Need for Speed 3 and 4. So it's not really Mass Effect music... but it's understandable that people would probably point it out like that though.

It's been a while since I played N4S (Undercover), but that irritating blur effect seems to be gone when you use nitrous boost. You can actually see what's going on around you.

Why have they re-uploaded this video? I've seen this before and I remember commenting on it =/

I really wished they would have made a updated version of the first most wanted with new story, new cars, a different city and no multiplayer.  Multiplayer yes is good in some games if done right but most of the time its just a add on fluff feature.  This interview pretty much told me bottom line that most wanted is another multiplayer centered hot pursuit with cops and hidden cars...  So what am I suppose to look forward to when I get this game that hot pursuit didn't have?  Some different features and open world driving and hide and seek car edition? 

 

Oh well my rants done I'm just P"oed with the direction Criterion is taking the almost best game NFS had in its catalog.

Underground 3!!!!! That's what we want!!! Just don't have Criterion make it. They're good but they wouldn't do the underground series justice.

we need a racing game where you can really customise your cars, but not in a tacky way.

So I guess you have to drive off course and wreck a lot to bust through garage doors and find stolen cars stowed away.

shops/car yards at different points in the game world?

Looks average. Then again I was never a burnout fan. Gotta love the ME2 music though.
