also! i must say, its less sim than Forza but deeper in the driver experience in the cockpit view so in that sense it has one up on Forza as far as actually simulating racing from the racers perspective... which i thought was always the point of racing games. it definitely isnt as deep in other aspects but it hits it close enough for most to enjoy... or something to that effect.
@hotrider12 yeah its awesome. that is if you are excited about the cockpit view which was done perfectly, and totally advances the feeling of actually racing. thats where this game shines. some people complained but I really liked the handling.. traction assist off though with full damage. its more sim than GRID but not as sim as Forza. It actually rewards aggressive driving though which I love but some people will hate. I just like that I can push a little and be rewarded. I dont go crazy like some jerks though, I dont slam people into walls or anything. Just moderate acceptable aggression but not totally clean. you get rewarded for clean and precise driving as well so everyone wins. ...its sweet. at least give the game a shot, best NFS title in years.
stop saying that NFS copy forza or grid, check the first NFS and it was lapping racing not illegal road race !!
nfs games were very graet at the past 5 years ... but now they are coping great games like FORZA3 or even FORZA2 and GT...so I dont think that nfs shift will have a chance... after all we have FORZA3,DIRT2 coming this year.
u can tell young gamers from old school gamers they dont know or heard about porsche unleashed first nfs sim. ROOTS PEOPLE!!!
you all are stupid...NFS isnt copying anyone, the series STARTED as a simulation game....they are simply going back to their roots
hmmmm....they've been workin on this game in less than a year...GT5 been on progress more than 3 years....the rest is for you guys
man this game is going to be AWESOME times 2 this game comes out in 4 days cant wiat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Remember how buggy pro street was??? Hmmm, don't think I'd ever buy any NFS again after that flop! Most wanted kicked A and Carbon was cool what the hell is this CRAP???!!
Need for speed has lost its touch. Most wanted was amazing. This is rubbish, Forza 3 is gna own every car game.
Lapping is so boring.. bring the cops back.. we want some chase and go thru a mall and hit as many pedestrians as we can.. ok maybe not but lapping is still very boring.. I wont buy that game for sure
To me, these battles would be the best (some of them might be in the game) Bugatti Veyron vs. Koenigsegg CCR Ferrari Enzo vs. SLR McLaren Aston Martin DBR9 vs. Ford GT LM Ariel Atom vs. SSC Ultimate Aero TT (worlds fastest car)
now this looks impressive its taken the sim of GT while keeping the undeniable fun of the NFS series i can't wait
From the comments, im getting the vibe that this game is like marmalade (you either love it or hate it)... and i think it looks pretty darn good, i will get this and enjoy it.
@DieOrFight Wrong this game looks a lot like a SIM called GTR!. Wait it is also made by the same people amazing HUH?! Anywayz this game will be great even if it is like the fail aracade game grid
Animation and handling of a car in this game does not feel so smooth i think that because of that heavy smoke from the tires. lol why game developers dont think of green hybrid cars love to see in the game which produce less pollution.
This game look good. I want this game in PC. I am wait for playing. I play all series of Need For Speed.
I really hope that not everyone bashes people around in the online mode, because that is what this video is promoting. Otherwise, it looks like a great game.
