why do EA have to destroy every racing game series they get their hands on?
just look what happened with the burnout series.
Burnout 1, no EA - great game
Burnout 2, no EA - one of the best games ive played
Burnout 3, EA start to get involved - still a good game
Burnout 4, EAtastic - absolute rubbish
Burnout 5, Eatastic - i don't even want to play it.
same happened with the NFS series, all the old NFS games were great, ok EA has always been involved, but as of late, the games have become rubbish. NFSU and NFSU2 were great games, but Most Wanted was crap, then they followed it up with the crashtastic Carbon - and this is easy for 75% of the game, then becomes like 3x as hard, and you HAVE to buy a new car, as the RX7 or whatever you had before is suddenly uncompetetive.
however, i hope EA can make Need For Speed good again - they should lose the street racing stuff, and go back to the old days, of racing really nice supercars that don't even need to be tuned up... would remind me of the many hours wasted years and years ago on Need For Speed Porsche 2000
Edit: now ive watched the video, im thinking oh god, they will make this crap and VERY annoying - probably make you pay for you damage or something... so you never have enough money to pay for upgrades as all the computer is designed to do is punt you
seems like they are trying to turn this in to NFS:Burnout.
