Amazing to read this article echo my thoughts/comments on the first Need for Speed article yesterday. As with Ed an a few others,its not to take anything from Forza away,i'm sure that game will get all the accolades an deserve them,Need for Speed (since they took the Burnout route for the last few years) is more my kind of racer thats all. I hardly play any racing games,with cars anyway an i wouldn't play a simulation long,whereas a manic exciting top speed romp with other racers and cops with spike strips,helicopters etc is such a buzz it always has a chance of me playing it at somepoint.
I mind going online with Hot Pursuit an i was like whaaaaaat!? Epic lol I had this mad american shouting at me as he couldn't catch me,it was nice to see after his rant he said good game though lol
Yeah this article made my mind up,i'm defiantley ordering this for launch. If it was my kid,he'd rather have Forza over this. I'm expecting Forza to get better marks than this,i'd just get more of my moneys worth with Need For Speed.
@Bamozzy If you loved the Burnout games you should try the last few Need for Speeds like Hot Pursuit an Most Wanted,both Criterion made games,so very Burnouty! This game isn't Criterion,but its made the same way as the last two so can't go far wrong.
