So .. anyone else get this? I really enjoy it. Running from the cops is the best aspect they brought back. And having the whole city to run in, obstacles to knock over/down in the pursuing cops path, and hiding places once they lose sight of you, make it worthwhile.

Also, I like the fact how your reputation is based on your racing skills. All the body kits, and appearance mods are there to reduce your heat level (re: wanted level) on your car. Change the body kit, wing, paint, rims, and they are looking for the wrong car. Course, it doesn't take long to get them chasing you again. And they will chase you, no matter what you are doing, racing, cruising, whatever. If you have warrants, they want to stop you ;)

The sounds are more realistic, the damage model is basic paint scraping. Physics are slightly better than most of the NFS games, but you can do some nice drifting. You can also back away from a police roadblock and do some nice highspeed j-turns, once you get the hang of it.

Sounds very interesting. I might have to just pick it up once it drops into the mid 30's in price range. I am not to keen on dropping 60 bucks on a video game.

Any screenshots to pass on of your high speed chases and body damage?

Body damage is typical of the NFS series, cracked/broken windshields, and paint scraped off the body. Other than that, there is no physical evidence like broken body panels, or the car driving like it's broken.

As for the high speed chases, you really have to work to evade the cops. Then, once you lose them, you have to stay out of sight for almost a minute, if they spot you again, the chase is on again. They have really good tactics, but it's not hard to lose them, if there is only one or two behind you. I've had up to 15 involved at a time. They employ rolling roadblocks, barricades, spike strips, pit manuevers. The only downside is, they talk about it over the CB, and you can hear what they are trying to do.

And I don't have any screen shots, I'm too busy playing :)

Yeah, this game is off the chain! i got it wednesday, and im already 53% done w/ it. the cars are very nice( lambo, porsche, aston martin). i also love the fact they brought back the po-po to chase you. i would give this game a 9 out of 10.

Best NFS ever. I'm #3 on the blacklist now with a Supra, Gallardo, and Mercialago. The cars sound amazing, the Supra sounds really deep like real life one, and Lambos sound exotic, just the way they should. Don't even get me started on the police chases. What can I say, if 17 police GTO's chasing you at one time isn't exciting enough, go jump off a bridge. I'd give it a 9-10 just because I woulda liked a bit more cars or rather some cars removed and replaced by others.

does it have just exotic cars or does it have imports and domestics too?

It has all three. Imports, Domestics, and Exotics. They even have the Ford GT! Just wish you could do better paint schemes, but after looking through the vinyls, you might be able to pull of the GULF GT40 look. :iceslolan Just need to get that far in the game now.

There is 32 cars in the game. If you get the black edition, you get some extra cars, along with some extra tracks.

I am currently #10 on the blacklist, I have a Poopra, Mustang GT, and a Cayman S. I like the fact that you don't have to have a highly modded car to do the regular races. You need something to keep up with the blacklist cars, but other than that, you can race a stock Cobalt SS on the regular races, and keep up and win. I love the police chases. I spend more time baiting and running from the cops. It gets a bit hairy when they start ramming you from the front.

I already did the Challenge 69 race, where you have to get a bounty of $500,000 to complete the challenge, then evade. You get to use a Camaro SS, and you are using Supercharged Heavy SUV's.

That is only in the black edition, though.

I have to moderate time with my roommate. He is at Blacklist #11. He's a non-driving fool, though.

Poopra? Man I used that car for the longest, like until I could fully mod my Mercialago which you gotta beat #3 to unlock I think. Wait to you guys finally beat Razor, the most intense shit ever insues. Won't ruin it for you guys but I'll just say that I hope yall can buck off a few cops :wink:

Saleen85
11-21-2005, 11:13 PM
Yea, it seems to have some good potential. I have the Mustang to do the other races. With just handling mods, it outruns the other competitors. And I have the Cayman S for when the Supra gets too hot under the heels. That might be awhile, though. They are currently after the Mustang. 140K cost to state with one chase on that bad boy.

so its worth buying? what kind of mods can you do? i almost got it the other day but i was like $60.....eh.

I think its worth buying. The cop chases alone should up the replay value. While we're on the topic of those chases...








I HATE those Police SUVs.


Everytime I get hit by one I start cussin like a sailor.

That is all.

Yea, when you're doing 160-180mph, they come out of nowhere. I had quite a few close calls last night, the only reason I got by, is because I was changing direction already, and they overshot.

i hate those SUVs also, but wait till you are at "code 5" when the police are chasing you. You're going to want to just kill someone.

Yea, if you got the Black edition, there is a challenge, #69 that you have to get $500,000 bounty in. You start at Code 5. It took me a few tries. They pin you pretty good.

I'm yet to get that far in the challenges, I kinda lost interest in them once they started making me use those lame ass civi-cars like the truck and minivan.

Oh yea, anybody else here beat the career yet?

I agree. I'm so glad I don't have to put on the ricey body kits, to earn street reputation. I was at a friends this weekend, worked him up to #3. I haven't played since I got home. Still at #7.

oh trust me, its not just you who thinks this game sucked, It sucks big time. The camera is completely shit and for some reason, you couldn't change it. The handling is definately the worst thing about the game, theres no difference between the cars and tbh the series has gone down the drain since it became a tuning game. It's caused a mass of young people modifiy their Vauxhall Novas and thats not a good thing. The music is awful, I hate rap music and their's plenty of that present. The graphics aren't even that good either. EA should concentrate on the Burnout series, mind you they fucked that up when the latest one came out. Burnout 3 is still the best EA game there is.

XeVeNskyLiNE
12-20-2005, 10:23 PM
Whoa whoa, what the fuck game were you playing? Camera views? There was like 4 of them. Handling bad? Are you serious? This NFS has some of the tightest controls out of the whole series and I love it. The music was bad, but shit, turn it the fuck off and just listen to the sound effects, which I'd have to say was some of the best I've heard in ANY racing game. Spooling turbo's, whining superchargers, BOVs, tires screaming, sirens blaring, wind rushing by, increasing engine notes, it was like a symphony to me. If people wanna rice up their Vauxhalls thats their fault, not the games. Graphics not good? Again, another WTF. Have you even seen it on XBox 360? Its plenty good enough for PS2. IMO, EA shouldn't focus all their attention on Burnout, that kinda game is fizzling and it shows in the latest Burnout, which I also think is the best out of the series cuz it was basically an add on to Burnout 3 and didn't show a huge improvement anywhere. NFS is Need for Speed's bread and butter racing game. You can stick to wrecking your generic cars, I'll stick to racing my custom exotics and making fools of the police.

Are you sure you aren't talking about GT4? :lol2: The only problem I have is that the spike strips aren't noticable till you are almost on top of them.

i rented this game from blockbuster and finished it in the seven days i had it.

it was ok, pretty fun, but i am glad i didn't buy it.

my main problem with the game is the same as with the underground games . . .
when fully tuned all the cars become basically the same.
example- i'm drivin' my fully tuned porsche carrera gt (sounds like a f1 car, sweet) and make a small mistake on a corner and have to scrub some speed and i get passed at over 200 mph by a fucking hatch? wtf?

like i said, it was fun, but i'm glad i only rented it instead of paying $50 for it.

im number.. well, it depends on what system.. i loved it so much i beat it twice for the Xbox and im #5 on the Xbox 360

i would rate this game a 10 out of 10

best racing game in my books!

i wonder what EA is going to do for the next NFS...
i think its either going to bomb or its going to be a bit better than this game

i dont play online because EVERYONE has the same damn car and its always maxed out.. and then some.. i wish there was a person out there that didnt waste thier time on tuning..

thats my :2cents:

I Renting this game it is so fun but i had so much pain in my arms for staying up all night playing it for about 2 days thats all i did. It's Plain Addicting... it's fun in the Evolution just going in circles around cops... Plus a good tip for getting in trouble with the SUV's Ram Staright into them if there is not like 4 all around you trust me they flip...

game is a huge improvement over the NFSU shit. i still don't like the fact that the game forces u to change ur vehicle. if i get my car how i want it, i have to change it to lower heat level or buy more cars to lower the heat. cars sound closer to real life counterparts. persuit is realistic and is worth buying the game for. soundtrack could have had more songs on it. I'm on blacklist #11 (college + work = little time to play) and have a colbalt SS, supra, and RX8. only arrested once.

I haven't played in about 2 months. Started a new career, and played for a bit last night. I was having some fun drifting the RX8. I'm at the #11 race right now, beat him and I'm moving on up.

I'm number 3 on the list. I got it about 2 weeks ago and I love it. Some of the bodykits suck and only one or two look god on the car. I like how the police chases are and heat level 5, holy shit it is fun, driving around with corvette C-6's after you, when you are driving a Corvette C-6. I have the IS300, Starter car, Dodge Viper, I won it from someone, the Corvette C-6, won that too, and I bought The Ford GT-(40). Last night Razor called and he made my Vette a Heat level 5 car for some reason but when he did that I thought all my cars had it now, but they don't. My career Compeletion is about 83%, I have done every race for everybody except maybve 2-3. I have like 76% on my Rap Sheet and for the game compeletion I have about 71% or 68%. I have only 11% on the Challenge series since basically all I play is the Career and have dont like 8 challenges. but when I finish my career I will finish the Challeneg series.

I have the regular edition because it was the only one left at Wal-Mart.

I give this game a 9 outta 10. Much better than the Underground series and the cars are much more realistic except whne you tune a car they all become the same thing.
