i think the game is great fun and very pretty graphically too (except the naff character models).

ill be getting it when it comes out on the 21st Oct.

even tho i think the copter dropping explosives is silly. they should have police throw stingers instead.

Actually i find the physics have alot in common with NFS:HS. Not that the physics were great in that game, very arcadish but it still worked. With PU they tried to go realistic but EA just doesn't know how to do a car sim. With a gamepad i think HP2 should be alot of fun multiplayer, although the graphics are good, they could be better.

Thumbs down NFSHS2

I have one word for it: PATHETIC.
I have a good system with just under 14000 3Dmarks, and its semi-choppy with 2year-old graphics.
I hope/guess Toca race driver will kick its butt.

Even test drive 1 is more involving.
I will not pay for this sloppy developers work.

Sorry for being so negative, but i expected so much more since i played NFS since the first one came out.

What I always hated about NFS was why have an arcade racer in a completely realistic setting? This does change that, but I don't know about enough. I might pass.
_____
I also HATE EA
I mean whee, they never supported NFS:PU on win2k for absolutely NO reason known to mortal men.
Thats called nonexistant support folks. Theres only one reason it won't run, and it can't be that hard to fix a bloody memory leak.

Downloading a no-CD crack for Porsche Unleashed allowed the game to run all day long under Windows 2000 for me. And it works great under XP even without the crack.

However, I'm still kind of on the fence about HP2, especially after reading these mixed reviews. I have a feeling, though, that TOCA/Pro Race Driver will whomp HP2 silly. I'm still holding out hope, even though the game has been delayed for so long.

lol, the game demo didn't even work for me. I downloaded the install file, tried to open it but it said that it was invalid. Oh well, I'll just stick to Test Drive Le Mans.

Could you still patch it? I can't find the patch off the autoupdater, and I can't figure out how I was getting in the game in the first place, because it seems....random.

Not that I honestly care anymore, but HEH

Savage - the no-CD crack for Porsche Unleashed was also a patch that updated the game from version 3.2 to 3.5. It also updated a couple other files.
