Congratulations EA. Here comes a seemingly good Need for Speed game, and you had to destroy it! There are many things wrong with this game. In a nutshell, here are the three main points:
1. Optimization for graphics cards is pure garbage, especially for low-end graphics cards.
2. (Biggest) Frame rate is limited to 30fps and the so called "fix" only works with a small percentage of pc gamers.
3. Graphics settings are hidden and also garbage. Can't turn down much of the stuff that matters (AA, SSAO, texture quality, models quality, etc) and .ini file does not exist and pc gamers are unable to modify graphics further.
Here is a video I made containing my rage, frustration, and personal experiences over the game.
Please reply back with your thoughts on the whole thing.
