    I installed and played this last night. IMO it looks rather good. Car models, roads, everything looks good to me.

    Game is fun for those times you just want to jump in and drive. Nothing special by any means but still fun.

    What I dislike is the lack of cockpit view. WTF...NFS always had a cockpit view. Am I missing something here?

    ILL GET THIS GAME TOMORROW! CAN'T WAIT FOR IT TO BE FINALLY HERE!

    i havent played nfs 1 and 2 but i have played 3,highstakes, skipped porsche (looked boring), hp2 i got it on ps2 epic game for its time, underground 2 was cool, MW was cool as it was first nfs with suprecars that you could "pimp" and the city was awesome. tho all that blacklist stuff was just too much. carbon was well meh bad sense of speed and always night, prostreet was meh, undercover was better than prostreet but still meh. i mean WTF veyron goes 400 kmh fully upgraded? bullcrap.and physics were more unreal than the ones of test drive 5. shift was best nfs i have played for now.

    well since HP2 they got rid of cockpit view untill SHIFt. so "NFS always had a cockpit view" is wrong.

    They got rid of them with NFS:HP2 for the first time. TNFS, NFS2, NFS3, NFS4 and NFS5, all had cockpits. NFS4 was the first one to use full 3D cockpits.

    K guys on the EA forum they recommended turning off 2 of the 4 cores for my cpu by right clicking the nfs11.exe in the process list in task manager. You goto process affinity and uncheck cores 2 and 3. with that said. any1 with a quad core here that doesnt have issues with it crashing?

    -__- seriously whats wrong. can you just tell me whats boring about it. because when i see vids of this game it looks like one of the most spectacular racers i have ever seen. maybe burnout paradise or split second take the cake.


    and you NEVER played NFS BEFORE?!?!?! SHAME! :slap:

    I've done about 3 races, i find it entertraining. But it doesnt have long period value ive found. But with that said theres very few games ill play more than like 2-3 hours. Pretty much just WoW and SC2

    Well if you didnt play 1,2,hp1,4,and hp2 you missed the best part. I mean. This game can't be worse than pro street or undercover.

    I don't see how ..

    I see it as better than Shift & Pro Street. Not quite as good as undercover due to no story/plot.

    No problems with quadcore...

    Anyone else agrees that the graphics in this game are even more realistic than Crysis (if you use a bumper cam)? When observing the massive landscape, valleys, ridges, ocean sides, road water reflections, it's just breathtaking. And it runs super fast at the same time. I think many ppl would have hard time telling which video is from game and which from a real world recording.

    i just got this game... and its awesome. but what annoys me, is the fact that you can't see the world map in free ride.

    and another cool thing is that i sometimes recognize parts of of need for speed hp pursuit (old one, and HP2) and with parts i mean parts of tracks.

    I have read that there are no AA options in this game, And forcing it in the drivers is what is causing problems and not the fact people have quad core cpu's
