ack i'm on dsl and i had trouble getting it, had to wait in line at fileshack and finally got it. its awesome. however some of the graphics have that ****ty look to it. like when you get caught by police, and you run away by feet and they chase. the characters look like crap stick figures, and close up the textures look like crap. however the cars are pretty detailed, but i actually think porsche unleashed looks better in some areas. if you want to check out a racing game with absolutely awesome, get the iso demo of v8 supercars race driver. almost lifelike.

I'm pretty dissapointed in it. The controls and feel are nothing like the last 3 NFS games, which are some of my favorites.

its a month old, and its a %70 work in progress. i'm confused as heck though, it seems like the next release of the pro race driver that is being made, but its not. sure looks like it, really confusing. the website also has it being called as toca race driver. bah, either way it looks pretty sick, but you gotta burn it or use a virtual cd drive.

Looks nice, but the controls are really bad. Also, the NFS: Porsche Unleashed tracks had more objects and details along the road, this one was pretty plain. Being chased by the cops is still fun though.

personally i'm really disapointed for the nfs series and ea games. if sony can make gran turismo for ps2, than why can't they make an equivalent for the pc. if you want to see super sweet exotic cars in a game on the pc, the only think really availible is nfsu and nfs:4 and they are no where near gran turismo quality. i thought nfs hp2 would change all that, but guess we gotta wait for something else.

EA have F1 2002, and that is visual stunning, furthermore if you have F1 2001 (which is also nice) you can download a GT mod and that is even better!!! the GT mod for f12002 should be released in a few weeks or so.

I played it, it's not a NFS game for sure, it's like an arcade game with dumbed-down physics...and the gamepad isn't very good at playing it.

Saying that, the graphics are very good (minus the people), and it was at least semi-enjoyable...

From what I've read, even the GC and XBOX versions of this game seem to reek, so don't expect anything spectacular... as for the PS2 version, high praise as the best in the series!
