I have only seen the teaser for it.  Looks kinda cool.  A Porsche being chased by 2 GTR cops.  Now that is def. bringing up the rivalry.

LOL  That's a nice eye you got there.  I so didnt focus on it.. though I was between the computer and the tv at the time.  I bet they did that just to denote a turbo setup for the kids even though anyone who truly knows what a turobed Porsche is, would know better.  But we all knew that NFS series was dumbed down for the less knowledgeable person or the person who doesnt care and just wants over exaggerated simulated thrills and flashy appearances.

NFS pro street wasnt that bad, believe it or not.

Fairly realistic cars, driving charictaristics wasnt terrible either.

At the strip in it, FWD cars did FWD burnouts.

GT40's also have front mount radiators. lol 15 ft of radiator piping ftw!

I wonder if they use small diameter tubing to keep the weight down and the pressure up? Carbon fiber could be used in either instance making it weight next to nothing.
I'd rather be a matchstick than a lighter.

I wasn't to big on Pro Street. I played through the whole game, it was just missing something. I did like how you can recieve damage though, and that it would affect performance and handling.

I need a good racing game, but I'd prefer a simulator.

Come on Forza 3!!

I'd say it's not even on the board for 2010.

A PS3 is also not on my want list.

download and install. it will give you a read out of what hardware youre running so you can get a better idea of what kind of games you can play.

i say they need to bring back a true street racing game... we all admit, when UNDERGROUND came out.... almost everyone had it! cuz it was bad ass.... i think after Underground 2, all the NFS's just sucked!

but i have come to the conclusion the UNDERGROUND is the reason there are more ricer's on the road. cuz u got more REP. points the more u rice out the cars... like putting hydraulics on a 240! lol. DUMBASSES!   lol

Well, I would agree that NFS games were definitely not as good after Underground. However, there was one thing I absolutely LOVED about Need for Speed Underground 2... I could drive around the whole city at my own discretion!!! That's what I really like about the newer Need for Speed games.

I think that NFS Underground 1 was definitely the best in terms of modding out your car. In NFS Underground 2 there was just too many little things you could change and although the quantity was there, the quality was gone.

However, Need For Speed Most Wanted was AMAZING!

the first NFSU game was rubbish. u drove around on the same boring 5 roads for the entire game, and all they really did was give you bits to make your car faster. i dont know how they managed to turn 5 tracks into 30 though... thats beyond me.

nismologist, look under "processor" for your processor type and speed. it should be in gigahertz. then go to "memory modules" and see how many megabytes of installed memory you have. finally, go down to "display" and identify your display adapter (video card)

Prostreet was a good game, but I didn't like the fact it was track racing..

I play video games to do shit I can't do in real life. I can track race, but I'm not getting in a police pursuit..

the new NFS looks very promising, its on my list of games to buy along with Left4Dead

Need For Speed Most Wanted is WAY better than any other Need for Speed game!
