WoW! Talk about absolute crap! I mean the cars feel like they are driving on ice, its far worse then any of the Underground games... The stupid teammate is annoying as hell aswell. I did notice that the game performes ALOT better and even looks better with motion blur off... and what the hell is with EA and not supporting widescreen on the PC.

Why the hell can't they just leave the motion blur effect for the turbo?? Why have blur when going 100mph??!! It does perform a lot better with it off. Amazing that motion blur murders the frame rate so much.

I will never understand why EA doesn't put widescreen resolutions in their games. On top of that this is the like the third EA game I played with a busted installer.

Plain and simple Burnout Revenge for the XBOX 360 was the best racing game created so far IMO.

But that's just my opinion of course. Although I wish they had more tracks in that game.

Has anyone played GTR 2? It got great reviews!

I have to say I'm dissapointed.The NFS series are the only racing games that I play,but I have to say this demo is very poor.What is up with the graphics?The game looks a lot worse than Most Wanted!Why are the cars so cartoony?What was EA thinking?Handling is also average,as tehcars seem to always slide on ice.

I only have the demo and I love it. Easily my fav modern racing game. Though I still think Porsche 2000/Unleashed is the last of the great NFS series. From then on they went straight down hill.

From all the screens, the game looks exactly like Need For Speed Underground 1. But why such a huger performance hog?
