Well that demo was crap. After playing the Most Wanted demo, I went and bought the game. After this demo I couldn't wait to uninstall it, here's why:

o Dull night time setting.
o Unexciting new race modes. eg. Drifting and Canyon.
o Unskippable cut scenes. Once is often more than enough.
o Installer that doesn't work without help.
o Incredibly low resolution textures for a PC game.
o Nothing new to see here, not even as good as past NFS games.

I would argue that NFS Underground looks better.

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!

GTR2 + driving force pro... now thats fun

I really liked NFW:MW,saying that I hated this,1280x1024 all options maxed was playable but boring,I hate that the team members voice cannot be turned off or lowered....ARGHH....The sliders and the morphing of the cars turned me off.I really do hope that the races dont entirely depend on the team members involvement.
Music was a 3 out of 10,where MW was a 8 out of 10 for me.No default support for WS 16:10 aspect ratios at this point is a HUGE piss off and turn off.I picked up
MW for 20 bucks used at EB,this I will never buy or even pirate.

I just tried it. I had horrible performance issues but to me it neither seemed anything good nor anything bad. Seemed like some old crappy racing heavily modded and re-done. But I will agree it was not NFS material at all....

And oh yeah WTF is up with that guy talking while racing !!

Also did anyone else had problem finding the game graphics settings ? It took me like 10 minutes to find them out thanks to the darkest start game menu..

I agree that no cops=no fun but there ARE cops in the game.I think they don't play such a big role as they did in MW,but I can't be sure.
