    I hope it goes back to the old driving engine, the one used in Pro Street was too realistic for me, which I can't do very well on PC, plus the whole series generally had cops chasing you and some slightly ridiculous things happening and the driving was crazy.

    EDIT: Trailer looks nice, can't wait for it, hopefully they'll do a demo, will get me back into gaming a tad, and I certainly will be able to run it at max settings.

    yea I really like the graphics in prostreet, even though it wasn't like the rest of the series it still was tons of fun and a great game, but I really missed free-roam

    NFS Most Wanted was the pinnacle of the series IMO, great graphics and gameplay...it went downhill after that (carbon..prostreet) so i'm not expecting anything fantastic from undercover

    Agreed. Needs to be like most wanted for me to play. Pro Street was insane to play

    Looks cool as far as im concerned...
    I can agree that NFS:Most Wanted was the pinaccle of the series, but this looks promising...
    Love the fact that cops are back...

    And imo carbon sucked, but prostreet was not that bad at all... it was just different
    anyhow... both parts had something i liked: carbon had those races in pairs with drafting behind your partner which was a really good idea, and prostreet had really cool drag races!!!

    Anyway i would like to see this next NFS a bit different than the rest, with more races like go pick this up and come back, go waste the other dudes car, etc,etc...

    can't wait for november 18th :D

    I totally agree. Most Wanted was Great but as far as graphics go, it's was hands down prostreet, If you ask me it looks like a mix of all the last 3. And I actually played underground 2 the other day on xbox :D

    But they say the game is going back to its "roots" so i assume that means cops, free roam, and awesome customization!

    I'm not really expecting anything great from this game, just more of the same style that we've come to know. I think it's neat story though from what I've seen, a cool spin on the franchise. The live action stuff is still cool to watch as well. Worth a rent at this point, not $60USD. Maybe when I see more of the gameplay I'll reconsider.

    I hope it doesnt run like shit...... PS looked great but it ran shit, Race Driver GRID looked tons better and it runs much better. Its not so much the framerate problem, PS didnt run smoothly. From what I can see this game will probably use a similar graphics engine, judging by how the cars look, with their reflections and all-they look very glossy. I do hope those bugs that NFS:pS suffered from don't come near Undercover-especially Autosculpt-while a cool idea it's implementation has always sucked. Why can't EA give us real bodykits that look nice? I hope the screwed up, half finished car models aren't there!

    I reckon EA should give the title even more time.... why does that preview vid seem so laggy?

    Yeah those look nice, and so did the trailer. I'm betting that's game-play footage, too many jaggies not to be. Unless that's just the pic size creating that effect. I would love it they brought back the dyno and the custom fuel mapping from Underground too.

    Then again the rest of the vids also had the same framerate so hopefully not.... Graphics look like MW but with much more detail.

    Most wanted was my all time favorite. Carbon was a flop to me, and Pro Street was more realistic. I can't wait for this game hopefully EA doesn’t screw up.

    I gave up Prostreet after online play was a must for achievements on the xbox... Most Wanted was the best and I believe this will be where that was... Still play that game from time to time.

    Most wanted had somewhat of a dusk/dawn kind of feel to it...imo i still like night play. It would be cool if they had real time play.
