The gfx of FlatOut2 i by magnitude better and it runs 10 times faster on my old 5900XT. I don't see why NFS carbon crap takes all that resources

It's quite simple really.It is this year's version, so it HAS to use more resources, even if the graphics are actually worse than last years version (which they are).

I wish they would re-release the first one with a major graphics overhaul. It would be a simple cash cow for them, and great satisfaction for the loyalists.

IGN Review of Full Retail Version:

http://pc.ign.com/articles/742/742405p1.html

IMO I think I'm gonna stick with my Most Wanted for the arcade racing fix. Can't wait to try my G25 on GTR2 when I get back from vacation actually.

I know I will but it ,I sure hope the game is a lot better then the Demo was,I am running it on a 7900GTX SLI and when I fired it up to play ,just half the screen showed and the other half was curropted,I fineally set some of the settings off ,like motion blur and my whole screen started working ,I don't like motion blurr anyway ,so that was'nt a big deal,I fineally figured out how to set my change of view and played it ,it was easy i won all the races the first time ,but the graphics should have been a lot better ,they have made enough NFS games to have better gaphics then that ,and with such poor graphics you would think it would have ran in the 100FPS,I did'nt have no skipping or pauses,infact it ran pretty smooth,when it was crashing,I just had two crashes and after that it ran ok.I sure hope the game runs and looks better then this demo.If they was'nt worried about it being able to play on the consoles as well as the PC ,IMO They could have done a better job.So far with what I have seen all the undergrounds and most wanted looked better.But they no they don't have to do a wonderful ghapic full game for it to sell,so they don't,Sorry as the demo looks and plays ,they will make plenty of money on it.

Not only NFS1, but anyone before NFS4 will be a cash cow for them..

Hmm, they seemed to like it with an 8.2 score. Readers scores are averaging 8.4.

8.9?

7.5 maybe, but no way would HE2:RtG be an 8+!
