I am glad they got away from the whole "Street Racing cars" deal. I really didn't like it.

Isn't it just more of the same?

YA BABY, Can't Wait! I already Pre-Ordered Two Copies: One For PC and One For My New XBOX 360!

I think its a good mix of Most Wanted and Porche Challenge. I wasnt into that street racing thing, so until now NFS has been dead to me. Hope that Undercover can bring it back alive.

Porsche was actually very good but im still holding out judgement on it. it'll probably be geared more to idiots like vegettoxp then for petrolheads.

Why would anyone want two copies of the same game on different platforms? Why not just get the X360 version?

I hope this does turn out to be good, when I got my 360 about a week ago (in fact maybe exactly a week ago) I got NFS:MW because I knew the other versions where just not worth my time. After the original few million of them I only liked underground 2 and Most wanted, so maybe this need for speed: The fast and the furious oh no that's not right is it, the story doesn't sound exactly the same. Will be a goodun

same, what's the point of underground? very glad it's gone back to its roots of "day-time cop chase". NFS is about cops not about street races, there are other games that are tons better than NFS at racing mechanisms such as Race Driver Grid.

cannot wait to get a KITT Mustang, or drive the Veyron

I saw the RS4 and got excited, I saw Callum Best (is it?) and all the excitment went away :(

Nice to see they have copied the classic cop/robbers from Midtown Madness 2, hopefully it will be as fun as that was

need for speed hot pursuit was one of my favs of the series so hope to see this one a bit more like that

NFS has always been about driving exotic cars, cops came in as a gimmick back in NFS3 and since then (all bar porsche) its been one shitty arcade chavvy **** racer after another!

The first NFS was about racing exotics and out running the police. The more advanced police chases didn't come until later in the series.

I'll add my voice to the long line of people that appreciate that the NFS series peaked with 2000: Porsche Unleashed. That was a simply stunning driving game that although not particularly realistic, managed to balance handling with enjoyability. I'm genuinely hoping that this outing will be as good. What annoys me is that fans of NFS have known this for years yet the developers have continually ignored us, here's hoping this release puts an end to that.

NFS High Stakes and NFS Hot Pursuit 1&2 would have to be my favorites. Out of the newer more "ricer" racing versions I really enjoyed Underground 2 and Most Wanted. The series basically went down hill from there. Carbon was utter crap, crappy story line and far too short, I finished it in 6 hours on normal difficulty. Pro Street wasn't that good either, trying to turn the series down a new road and failed epically.

By far my favorite racing game to date is still GRID, not much comes close IMO, unless we drag Gran Tourismo into this lol.

Why not just get the PC version?

I REALLY hope this isn't going to be as bad as Pro Street was, nor do I think that rice should be the main focus like it was back in NFS:U, U2, and Most Wanted. This should be about proper tuning, and proper driving, not riced up Japanese crap...
Primoz 15th October 2008, 19:31 Quote
They should take a look at TDU, that is still a very very good driving game. Everything you get from tuning is 3 levels to buy, sure, that may not be that much and the driving model does have some big flaws but all in all it's IMO a very, very good racing arcade with a good story. Well, there's not much of a story, but the game still pulls you through it.

The best games ever made :) need for speed :) I love it from the first part with crappy graphics ;)

can't wait can't wait. I should buy an new card soon. This is The game that I'm waiting whole life.

Thanks for this Joe

No big reason to why I am getting both PC and 360. But Since I got money to Burn, I wanted to get Both. On my PC Side I have the Power of Intel QX9770 3.2GHz and For Graphic Card, I have the nVidia 8800GT 512MB. I just wanted to compare the Visual Effects between PC and 360.

I hated Carbon, racing only in the dark got old really fast. The bugginess on PS2 also annoyed me.. If I went over an hour without saving, I would end up losing all of my progress. Also, the difficulty of races kinda sucked. For the first 3/4 of the game, your opponents cars would be a little worse than yours, and the bosses had slightly better cars. In the final quarter, I had three Lamborghini Gallardos against my Lancer Evo, in nearly every race. I never did finish that game. :(

If this game can combine the pros of PGR4, TDU and Burnout: Paradise, then I would get it, but fat chance. The only thing I enjoyed in Carbon was the challenge section. "Destroy 50 police cars in such and such time limit" or "Escape from the cops in this car with no working wheels"... These were fun.

100% absolutely agree. i love pure sims too, but GRiD is THE best mix and blend of hardcore racing and pick-up-a-bility that an arcade racer oozes. absolutely love it (two aliases: DEATHSQUAD-graig and graigchq)

I'd bone Maggie Q. And that Lexus.

I've been playing Need for Speed since the first week of their first Road & Track partnership release; I had just started school for the first time of my life and was already spending all day playing and mastering a racing game. If they move off of the nanny driving aids and high-friction physics, I will take back my abandonment of the franchise, which was right after their best one, yet: Porsche Unleashed.
Malfrex 16th October 2008, 10:32 Quote
I'm in agreement with the few others up near the top. Porsche: Unleashed/2000 was the peak of the series. The first disappointment for me was when they decided to change Motorcity from a NFS title into an MMO and then sent it to it's death. Then the whole Underground thing started up and they haven't got away from it. Yeah, I want to still have cops chasing me down (just like in the original) but I want to be able to properly tune up my car as well, a la Porsche. I want to change tire pressure, change the differential... and have damage not just be some cosmetic thing. I don't like the tri-level upgrade system, it's just simplifying things down to the level of Top Gear a la SNES. Perhaps the secondary NFS team will go back to it's true peak; guess we'll find out in ~12 months.
