Awesome! I was wondering what the status of this game was. The first demo was pretty cool, hope this one keeps it up. :)

sweet, thanks

Here are a few screencaps. The demo has more polish now but the end is annoying. After you quit, it takes forever before it lets you close it. I ended up killing it in the task manager.

I like that it shows damage. I wish NFSU 1 & 2 did that.

Ehh, tried the first demo, and thought it sucked, tried this one, and although it had a VAST improvement over the first demo, it still hasn't given me a reason to "want" this game.
oh well

03-23-05, 09:28 PM
agreed, not very impressed. Graphics were very good...definitly under the par set by NFS:UG2 ....and the steering was way too stiff and the corners were easy to "cheat" on...

OWA, does AA not work or did you just have it off?

03-24-05, 07:59 AM
Couldn't get my Xbox or Sidewinder controllers to work even though it looks like the game supports them both. Also I had the problem of the game hanging at the last screen so I had to kill the process w/task manager. Not a good sign.

So with time the game has become buggier? GG THQ!
Anyway, I'm hoping they fix things up, since at least Swedish PC Gamer liked it when they reviewed it, like, 6 months ago.

The demo was nice, great graphics and sound but the steering was a bit fast too fast for me at least. I think this is going on my buying list.

Performance was also good, staying at 60 for the most of the time at 1600x1200 & 4aa&8AF.

I'm not sure about the AA. I noticed that as well but not until I had done all the screencaps. I didn't really notice anything wrong in the night racing since it was so dark but I thought things didn't look right once I got to the day time racing. I think what happened was I got tired of waiting when the game was showing its ads at the end so I kept killing it (edit: maybe it was actually hung as sat said). That ended up resetting my game settings and I didn't realize that until after I had done the screencaps and posted them. So, some might not even be at max settings.

In short, I have no idea what my settings were unfortunately.

Yay, damage modeling!

I would take this over a NFSU game any day.. the hip hop culture style and commercialism of the NFSU series doesn't much appeal to me.. :confused: Juiced is just great.

Is it just me or is this graphically a lot worse than the demo that came out last year?
