I won't be first in line as it appears I need to wait for the next gen version. Need for speed is my favourite racing game and I do my best to defend it when ever possible. Although I admire the game for always trying to reinvent itself, it does release some rather unfinished pieces of gash. NFS shift, NFS pro street, NFS the run, NFS undercover, just to name a few. Not to mention the last, single track, narrow road of a headache most wanted. When they get it right, they get it right, when they don't its awful. Lets hope this next gen first offering has some hints to the more successful games and doesn't try anything too new for now, as I fear they might add yet another nail in the coffin of this franchise that is in desperate need of not one but a good succession of great games to get back on form.
