Default Re: NFS Carbon PC Demo

on all EA games you should install them in Win 2000 compatibility mode. EA obviously doesn't care that their installer is broke. It has been that way for years now.

The racing is ok. But I find it annoying that none of my car settings or race progress gets saved in the demo. Also I must reconfigure my joystick every time which sucks..

I enjoyed MW because it brought back some of that feeling I got from the old NFS games with the cops and all. However EA proved to me with BF2 they suck ass and I will never give them my coin again....

Wow, that was horrible.

Graphics were lame, handling physics were lame, music was lame. Installer was lame. Menu's were lame and limited. They finally made it to where you could assign button presses for individual gears (for those nice shifters). Too bad the menu to change those assignments can't be accessed until you're in the race:lame.

Lame.

That and Gran Turismo. Hell, it doesn't even matter if its GT 1, really. However, we all know that all the good games for consoles are never ported and if they are they are usually 1-2 years late and of crap quality.
