Very true and so is EA Montreal, the guys who made the Splinter Cell games, Prince of Persia and who are working currently on Assassins Creed (and Double Agent).

Edit: ^^^ Bunch of BS, shouldnt post when Im tired.



HP2 was an average but a little boring NFS game but I did like U1 and U2. From the car handling side they were actually better than MW but from the technical side all 3 games (U1, U2, Carbon) seem to be very similiar and feature not the same type of advancement that I and many others expected. Carbon almost reminds me of the EA Sports titles (FIFA, NHL) which barely change from one year to the next three years or so.

Sad but Ill give the retail game a fair chance.

Hmmm... I thought UBISoft were the ones responsible for Splinter Cell, Prince Of Persia etc... Anyway I downloaded the demo of Carbon and I have to admit that I didn't think it was THAT bad. The visuals were pretty good and it controlled OK. The only thing that I found really disappointing was the drifting part of the game. They totally ruined it!

LOL yeah Ubisoft Montreal is responsible for Splinter Cell, Assassins Creed and PoP. EA having nothing to do with those titles.

I'm downloading the demo while at work. Though i feel after Porsche 2000 the series went downhill.

*Don't hurt me*
I actually kind of liked the demo - didn't leave me thinking wow this is awesome...gotta buy - but it did not leave a sour taste either.

Ups:
- Free form modifications - really liked this feature, and hope that they maintain it and grow apon it for future releases. Gives me the ultimate freedom to decide how to modify my car instead of giving me set puzzle piece to create my master piece....I now decide how the puzzle pieces are designed.
- Like the addition of the driving teamate...adds another level of strategy to the game...this feature needs to be improved a bit more those (better a.i)
- Enjoyed the canyon racing format....new twists are alwasy good...did not like how you had to restart back to the first phase if you messed up on the second one.

Downs:
- Frame rate issue - should be fixed in final release
- Handeling - reminded me of TSD: Unlimited ....reason why I did not buy it...give me one of these games with the handeling of rallysport challenge 2...and I will buy.

I agree that it feels like the cars are on rails, I didn't really enjoy this demo.

Tried this demo... and man I'm disappointed. The blur effect is overdone, control isn't sharp, unpolished and lack of originality (or something new)... still. Even my friend at EA said it sucks before demo hits the marketplace and he's right.

Most Wanted is still awesome so is Josie Maran
