Just blagged myself this off the marketplace.

had a quick play through..fully customizable bodykits and the drift modes are SWEET.

i feel its lacking in the graphics department again though, not that it looks bad.

I thought it was a bit cheesy how the drivers talked to each other and what not. Whats with the music?

Is the framerate still choppy/hitchy like the last one? I know some people couldn't see the choppiness in the last one (lucky them) but it drove me crazy so I never got into it.

When I first played the demo I thought the drifting was completely impossible... but second try I was able to drift the entire track without smacking the wall but once... speed helps... the faster I was moving the easier it went... downshifting also seemed to help... the canyon portion was what really made me say ... yep.. this is a Tokyo Drift rip-off... except I didn't have a mustang with an import motor biggrin.gif I think when this comes out I'll still rent it first...

Just wondering what some of you are getting for scores in the drift??? I've gotten 280,947... if it wouldn't have been for some wall hits i would have drifted the 2nd lap the entire way...

Well, Just got done playing the demo.

First time through I beat the race, Drifiting was hard at first, then i got the hang of it and it was easy.

The game looks neat, but I agree the graphics are not the greatest. Old NFS games (for the times) felt like they had very good graphics, but this is just normal (I think PGR3 looks better and most likely Forza 2 will be a ton better looking).

I did like how you can make your own parts though, neat little touch smile.gif

i've read a bit about the gfx not being so good. are they worse than most wanted? i'm still downloading the demo so i can't tell. mw didn't look that bad to me personally, great game.

I think the game looks amazing. The cityscape and all the lighting on the circuit race is incredible. I don't know why you all are saying its lacking in that department, unless you're just not playing in HD. The only thing I didn't like about it was the drift race. It is WAY too easy to drift in that mode. Overall I think this will be the best NFS yet.

The graphics are good...but they blur to make them look better than they are. PGR3 for example has extremely Crisp graphics and only blurs the scenary close to you, the stuff a bit further down the track is in good focus and looks really good.

Personally, I have NFS:MW on my PC and it looks better than Carbon does now...but who knows, they may improve the graphics a bit....they improved TDU between the first demo and the second smile.gif

I like the automold feature in Carbon and i think its a great way to further customize you're car.

But just recently i have seemed to get more into car simulation games (PGR3, Forza) and when i played carbon the controls just felt cheap. I think EA should try to make better controls for this game
