Pretty sure this was to be a new Burnout game and they just slapped nfs on it.
Still looks fun though.

So, the official release was today. I suppose instead of opening a new thread, I can write here. I gave it a 30 min test spin and then deleted since it wasn't my personal copy. First thing, the game doesn't run very well on my laptop (i5 3210M, GT630M 2Gb, 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz, 0.5 TB 7200RPM- res 1366x768). It gets around 30 frames- with motion blur and shadows off). Even with these on- 22-26fps. Second thing, I loved the original Most Wanted- and still think is the best of the NFS series. I am not a good driver, but on NFS World and the previous parts I could easily manage to progress, in this one the steering feels different to me. And I I find it difficult to control. Third it is an open world, which means that during the race, you can just swirl and go for a walk- that's not so bad, but it needs time to get used to. Because the radar is showing where to go, on the run, and when you hit a crossroad with many places to go and the high speed it is very easy to get out of the "track". I kinda like the old-school fixed-track-way. Anyway, I don't have spare cash now, so it is a no buy for me. I don't mind most of the above, but the steering is really a challenge to me.
