Didn't buy Metro since it's not the sort of FPS I'd go for anyway.

I'm not sure why people are saying such things about this game. It's nothing like the Ridge Racer power sliding and if you've played Burnout Paradise recently(which I have), NFS HP feels more like a simulator than an arcade game, since the cars feel a lot more weighed down.

sims have physics and no rubber banding.

NFS HP has both rubber banding and a total lack of any semblance of physics what so ever.

I said it feels like a sim not is a sim. NFS HP was like this anyway so I don't know why people are knocking it.

This NFS ticks all the right boxes by going back to it's roots, though missing out the dashboard view is a disappointment. At least they put a voice over for each car explaining about the technical details, which what I liked about the old NFS games. Also I like the fact I can just drive anywhere in traffic or race on long winding roads and valleys. I really never liked Carbon and Shift.

Game is 50% off over at Direct2Drive making it $24.95.

Can use the coupon code 'Grinch' to knock another 10% off too.

it's a pretty decent racer, but not as fun as burnout. i keep hearing rumors of an AA driver patch in the works, but nothing yet.

Funny reading this thread, and thinking about how everybody dog's on ATi's drivers.

nVidia's are definitely superior, but this just shows they're far from perfect.
