Yey. I had the same problem. Use Win2000 Compatability mode on the Autorun.exe. It worked for me.

This game is just how it should be. Got away from the underground stuff and back to original nfs styles. You can also bypass that directx 9.0c problem by manually extracting the main 0compressed.zip archive to the main directory.

The demo installed and played just fine here. I'll reserve judgment for a bit since I don't quite know what to think yet. I played almost all of the modes of game play and it's definitely fun. Like jAkUp said the cops are fun to evade and the driving is more like the older NFS. I really liked the first NFS Underground but Underground 2 didn't do much for me so I ended up blowing it off.

I'll probably buy this one just for the driving but I will say that the new games coming out are way to much console looking and playing and not nearly as good as they used to be. It's to bad that things are SOooo much better on the PC now and games are getting worse because of the console mentality. Or at least that's my opinion

Wow its gorgeous with everything maxed out at 1600z1200. I thought it was going to be alot like underground series which I didnt like too much but I loved this and it does seem so for like a worthy update to Hot Pursuit. I am getting for sure but most likely for the XBox 360 if it runs above 60fps.
