| You are being abit aggressive, especially being he meant a simple and no offense statement. No need to react like 'Are you on crack?' .. It's his opinion. There really aren't alot of differences in NFS bro, and I have played every single NFS since '94. Even the god forsaken Pro Street. I have to agree with that statement, only thing that changes is the screenplay/background of the title and graphics, being it went from whatever to FB2. Gameplay is still the same, Cars look the same, mechanics are the same, yada yada yada. Rivals will be another MOST WANTED man, I'm telling you. This time it's just what? Cops and Racers? How different is that from Hot Pursuit?|
NFS has jumped on the annual release train like COD and all the other games of this time. It's sad.. companies lost what they were founded for, games that are valued for years, not a acouple months.
Well, different people.
Of course the gameplay will be similar, they're racing games, you can't change driving a whole lot without it being ridiculous or insanely hard.
With your rationale though, GTA has been the same since 2001, police chases? check. Carjacking? check, gunplay? check. But they're obviously not the same. Again though, I didn't see how I was aggressive, I don't think anyone takes "are you on crack?" to be a serious insult, atleast I wouldn't.
And they didn't jump on the annual release train like COD, they've had annual releases practically the entire time
. I still play the older NFS games, so I'd say they accomplished the valued for years portion too. Just go back a page or two, I actually posted a release chart EA released showing annual releases with the exception of the time between NFS1 and NFS2, and between PU and HP2.
Again, not being aggressive, just clearing some of the rampant misinformation here, but at the end of the day they're just 1 and 0's, so who really cares I guess.
And the cars look the same because we're hitting a barrier on graphics, atleast carwise, you can blame car manufacturers if you think they all look the same, not EA's fault.
But whatever, ontopic again, I hope Frostbite 3 is as optimized at FB2, from the BF4 trailer FB3 doesn't look that much different though. Hopefully they release a Carlist soon, nice to see Ferarri back again, I think HP2 was the last NFS game to feature them with the exception of SHIFT console DLC.
I wish they'd annouce they're releasing a "HD" (HD is thrown around too much, but the only word I can think of) remake of High Stakes, right down to the soundtrack, tracks and carlist.
