Anyone pick it up? What do you think? How is the online play? Does it have the car customization and free roam style game play that the NFS games from early PS3 days?

How could anyone part with cash for a racer when we're this close to GT5? :D

I like the customization aspect of NFS. GT games just don't have that. I have GT5 prologue and I liked it but I got bored fast. Although NFS may have taken it down a bad road with the weapons on this one... I am not so into that we will see. Makes me think of Road Rash on the Sega or was it N64?

Road Rash is old school. Think I may have had that back when the Master System was still kicking around :D

I've got to agree with Skeet - I prefer Burn Out: Paradise City to GT5 Prologue, and I'm thinking about gettinf NFS.
You might say that GT5 is more realistic, but what about car damage - it just puts me off seeing cars bouncing off walls like balls.

Lol I know DB4 would strongly disagree but I just cant get into the strictly realistic style racing I like a little craziness and creativity in my racing games.

So I did pick up NFS yesterday and it's pretty cool playing as a cop and trying to stop the racers is a lot of fun. I guess no one else is playing it though :(.

Not yet, sorry - still hooked on BOps. May rent it later in the year for my 6yo to play (and of course for me in the evenings).

I tried the demo and didn't care for it which is strange because I love Burnout: Paridise. I'm more of a sim player when it comes to racing\driving games, but for some reason I just love BO!!! I'm going to stick with GT5 when it comes out.

I actually have it also, I forgot my brother had pre-ordered for me as a gift.
Only been playing Black Ops when I have time though :D

Thinking about picking this up today! I prefer the more arcade racer to the simulation of GT5.

Picked it up today. I had 30 on a gift card that was burning a hole in my pocket :)

Will have a game tonight.

I really need to stop buying games as the pile of unfinished ones are piling up.

BFBC2: Need to get my platinum.
BlOps: Finished the campaign, need to mop up a few trophies and try and persevere with MP.
Heavy Rain: Need to finish story and mop up a few trophies I missed.
Uncharted: I have asked for Uncharted 2 for xmas so bought this to play before.

I have played this quite a bit over the weekend and am really enjoying it!

The game is very arcadey and like Chase HQ for the 21st Century. Ahh Chase HQ, I used to love that game on my ZX Spectrum.

The GFX are very good and soundtrack is excellent. Each chase etc, really makes you want to try again, to beat your time.

You can also do a free-Roam mode to just drive about in the beautiful cars you get.

I have only played 1 game online, but it was fun. You get split between racers and cops and you need to eaither make it to the finish (racers) or stop them getting to finish (Cops).

The weapons that are in the game are good and from what I have seen so far, they get upgraded as you progress.

There is a photomode that you can take HD pics with and share online. I have not managed to get this to work however.

If I were a proffesional reviewer I would give it an 8.8/10

How is that Tonka! :D

Considering Ryan Seacrest, I am assuming the police in Seacrest county are everywhere but void of any real skills?

There are 3 ways to take pics.

1. Before starting a race when you get the car description you can push triagle to enter photo mode (This is HD Photos)
2. Anytime during a race you can press R3 and it will take an instant screen shot and sent it to the photo section of Autolog (This is SD Photos)
3. Press Start during a race to pause and enter Photo mode. You can then move the camera and add effects etc. (This is HD Photos)

I have a few more I made last night!

That was way more fun than I thought it was gonna be! And I was almost able to drive straight by that last race...
So how'd you get the pics posted? Does it make me lazy or resourceful to ask and not figure it out by myself? :D

I really like the game because of the online play. If you go to https://hotpursuit.needforspeed.com/autolog/login?destination=autolog and sign in you can view your pics. So you can right click and take the image url from the image info tab and post it.

Oh and I would label it as resourceful, but then again I am the one who told my wife... "I don't procrastinate and I am not lazy. It's called energy conservation." I would consider this to be energy conservation. :cheers:
