EA's effect on Criterion. Also, crippled by Intel.
But still it's an AAA game, for free
And I wish to support Criterion, they are a pretty talented studio.
I enjoy a game where you're able to customize the car, and have the audio from the game actually feel right.
Both NFS:MW (the orignal) and MNC:LA were able to achieve this, and loved both of the games because of that.
I started loving these games when I first played NFS:UG2, I loved being able to tune a car and it actually change how I went thorough a course like drift or circuit.
Granted the graphics are dated, but the idea was great.
The RUN was a step up in graphics, but a step back in virtually everything else IMHO.
I've been waiting for a game to be released that actually has the great game play Underground 2, Most Wanted and LA had, but the closest thing I've been able to find is The CREW.
I would rather a game feel like you've built a car from the ground up or that you've actually progressed as time went on.
They need to figure out a game that can allow up to create our own car and bring it with us through the entire story if need be, stop catering to the casual gamers for once and make a game that takes hours to play, enjoy and get angry at.
