My enjoyment!!...Hindered!!

Posted by Vitor

Looks gorgeous. As long as it basically plays like a sequel to HP, I'm happy.

Here's hoping the new dev team actually has enough of the Criterion DNA to make it skip the usual NFS 'off' year.

I really liked Hot pursuit(2010) Hope this is more of that.

Posted by Sin4profit

Since i really liked Hot Pursuit and didn't like Most Wanted i dunno how i feel about this one. I'll have to wait and see.

Looks more like Hot Pursuit - if so, I'm in.

I'm 'bout it, 'bout it

What's wrong with 30 Seconds to Mars :P

I didn't really like Hot Pursuit and Most Wanted as much as I wanted to but this does look gorgeous. Think I'll just go with Forza 5.

Posted by Rolyatkcinmai

This and Forza 5 will be my driving games this autumn. Might get this on PS4 just to have one on each now that Driveclub is dead.

Seconded.

They still haven't gotten around to remaking NFS: High Stakes.

Veyron cops... I'm on board.

Driveclub is dead.

That's overstating it a bit, don't ya think?

Same here. Luckily, this looks like it leans more to the Hot Pursuit side.

"Try not to let the 30 Seconds to Mars song hinder your enjoyment." ...Guess I didn't try hard enough. Damn you Leto.

Why is my rival Jack challenging me to a game I would never play?

Really, this is all I want with better graphics, more varied races. Hot Pursuit was the pinnacle of NFS for me.

Edited by spraynardtatum

So I've been seeing people around the net saying that this game uses the same map as Hot Pursuit. Does anyone know if there's any truth to that?

Posted by TwoSe7enFive

Looks pretty cool.

BTW, nothing is wrong with 30 Seconds to Mars. Something is wrong with Alex. Must be miserable to go through life hating almost everything.

For sure, didn't mean actually dead but in terms of having games to play at the launch of these systems. Apologies. I'll certainly be playing Driveclub whenever it decides to come out.

Why so damn cynical and snarky all the time?

Yeah for those who are getting PS4, this game looks like its their only option for a driving game. Which sucks for those who are more into sim racers, NFS has always been more acrcade-y.

I guess there's Gran Turismo 6 on PS3, but DriveClub's delay leaves a pretty big hole in the next-gen launch software.

I'm not completely against it, but I can say that what I played of Driveclub at PAX almost entirely turned me off of it anyway so a delay might be a good thing. Of course I was with @pseg and he liked it, so who knows. He's the racing king of Detroit as we all know.

This actually looks much better than I thought. While I love me some 60fps racing, I don't particularly care in an arcade racer.

This actually looks like Hot Pursuit + Test Drive Unlimited 2, and I'm all for it.

Posted by csl316

Most Wanted was one of my favorite early 360 games. Would make sense if this turned out to be one of my favorites for another launch lineup.

Edited by Zojirushi

More like with 30 Frames per Second to Mars. Goddamnit EA...

Posted by mlarrabee

I loved Hot Pursuit and I loved Hot Pursuit.

Criterion is the only thing keeping the NFS series from being a complete joke--a particular shame considering its illustrious past.

Posted by Lausebub

Eh, 30 Seconds To Mars isn't the WORST band on this planet.

So many launch people are getting this game alongside Assassin's Creed IV, since their counterparts got delayed(at least on the PS4, the Xbox is still getting Forza 5).

Posted by indieslaw

I accidentally shit-talked Jared Leto to his face about his band in 2010. Not my finest moment.

Looks boring.

Edited by Orange_Pork

Screw you at @alex hole. I like Jared Leto. Ha! Nothing since Need for Speed Underground 2 has been that amazing.

Nah. Both sequels to Underground 2 were better than Underground 2. People don't rememebr them though, usually because they never played them.

Posted by RetroVirus

Looks solid. Any Criterion driving game is bound to be good.

Yeah Alex, have you learned nothing from Patrick's speech about being negative on the internets? Some people may like 30 Seconds to Mars. Lol, I kid. Love you Alex and Patrick both. Keep up the great work Bomb Crew. You guys keep my life sane.

agreed. song actually goes well with the video. I love alex but he is a bitter bitter man. I get that's his personality, but no need to shit on the band on a video that is focused on the game not the music.

Love you Alex

ALEX IS OLD.

Criterion was still involved they did all the online stuff and the autolog while the new dev team did everything else so there shouldn't be anything to worry about compared to if criterion had no involvement at all.

Me and my cop friends are gonna get you hoodlums.

Someday you will all be old enough to understand how bad 30 Seconds to Mars is. It may only be a few years away...
