No Need For Speed thread?

Recommended Posts

Sooo is anyone getting this? Any thoughts or feedback would be appreciated, looked fun in the trailers however the physics and swinging camera crap appear to be pretty terrible.

Was planning on picking it up yesterday, but still playing Forza and wont have time to play it with COD and Battlefront coming out soon. Apparently no option to pause the game as well, which could become frustrating.

Figured as much shadow, really did not like the look of the game at all other than modifying the cars, however GT has also been a disappointment for years now.

 

Did not know that Goliath, would lead to many a rage quit for races, also heard there's no manual transmission option "yet"

you can pause, it just doesnt stop the game. still has restart/quit race etc.

 

its fun but the controls are a bit iffy. its much better to set yourself up for drift than grip as it makes the cars turning response much sharper.

 

Speed hunters were involved in the development so its all show and not a lot of go, really.

 

 

Gran Turismo is hot garbage. Forza or bust for console simulators.

Video embedding has gone (great work NS.com), but here are some reviews.

 

 

 

I actually prefer the arcadey feel of NFS over GT. I've had a lot more fun playing NSF games and really that's why you play games.

yeah ive been enjoying this a fair bit. the difficulty does ramp up pretty quickly once the colour missions (story missions) get up to 'hard' though.

 

edit: despite having no manual option, the drifting controls are still quite nuanced - you cant just mash brake, turn and mash gas. I mean, you can, but managing throttle, brake, handbrake and steering correctly rewards you with a faster drift and more points.
