    Can't beat the original Road & Track - Need for Speed imo ,Released in 1996.

    NFS has rapidly gone downhill in the last 5 or 6 years :(

    I read about it on gamepowerup. Its quite interesting, something different from all that Fast and Furious stuff, and seems better than Pro Street.

    The only nfs i liked were SE and Underground except these parts i played but not like.

    The recent one "Undercover" is the biggest disappointment for me. I doubt the game has the same engine of mercenaries 2.

    Its nice to see need for speed go back to its roots, the gameplay of the latest needforspeeds couldn't even touch the earlier ones like hot pursuit

    Rear view mirror! Hopefully hood view has one too.

    I saw the name on another page with "The development studio responsible will be London-based Slightly Mad Studios, which is headed by former SimBin co-founder Ian Bell, whose experience with driving games includes GT Legends and GTR 2." and though could this be a realistic NFS. And what do you know it seems so.

    I'm also exited about the "Need for Speed: World Online" could it be 'Motor City Online 2'? Well probably not with old cars, but free online NFS, I'm game.

    Yes it does and not a bad thing. Don't know GRID sell figures, but think it did quite well, not a surprise to see a 'copy'. But much less post processing going on in that picture than GRID, so that's good, although I like the look of it too.

    If it actually manages to be as good as GTR2 and GTL go (which probably wont happen) only then i will be impressed. Grid is rubbish when it comes to simulating physics, we know that.

    it's still EA.. they will F*** it up. F***ing up games is the only thing they do consistently.

    I do hope I'm wrong though, the screenshot looks sick.

    Yes, I'm excited.

    Yes, I doubt they will pull it off. Why?

    1./ They need to refer to "girls" to make the game interesting
    2./ They may use an outside studio, BUT, they still have EA design manager and production manager
    3./ Focus is on visual effects gimmicks, but NOT as underlying car physics
    4./ Picture looks great, BUT, yet another tunnel and corridor car racing game

    >> MIX NFP:pU with NFS:HP2 and turn it into 2009 code on DX9/10 and then we are talking.

    you never know, EA are the kings of f-ing up good games, and those movie-like(cutscenes) nfs's all suck i my book

    I just hope they don't murder it with DRM like they did SPORE

    Explanation needed, do you mean they had epic pre-release screenshots and then actually released with original Duke Nukem 3D quality visuals?

    hmm sadly I wouldn't put stock in screenshots I just wouldn't.

    only thing we can do is wait and hope they don't drop the ball on this and instead pull a pump fake and scramble for the TD.
