EA hides those shadows by turning NFS:C to UG style

I could keep it shorter, I like to get straight to the point, no reason to write essay on every topic. Never was a big fan of IGN, that was more of an opinion then fact. IGN giving such a bad game high score just proves my opinion. They are either stupid or got paid by EA.

I got a subscription to IGN; maybe visit once a month or so. I got the fileplanet/IGN subscription for free from comcast.

I have a feeling IGN is on the payroll for a lot of Publishers.

When will we have better drivers to improve performance of NFSC on nVidia cards. The sheer difference that is seen on ATi cards is disappointing. I think people with nVidia cards are facing a driver issue.

You would've seen some "whinage" about the nVIDIA performance if the game was worth it.

I was just playing game...just disable motion blur, and with 1600*1200 AA4x Af8x, everything maxed the game rocks...pretty smooth.

Motion blur is so ugly and useless...the game looks way better without it...you can nicely see texture and everything around and the car details as well...

Well, I'd like to see that for myself but alas, I'm using Vista RC1 on that system and this is all I see. I hope the final version of Vista or the final version of ATI drivers have a little better compatability (since I don't know which one is the issue here).

I thought the demo looked and played really bad. Just installed full game and was very suprised with how fun it was to play. Yea, 16x12 4aa 8af no blur and low vis treatment yields frames in the 60's and 70's on fx-60, Quad SLI 7950's. Plays like a highly polished ver. of Most Wanted. Way more to do, and looks and plays better doin it. Hope a widescreen hack comes soon
