Hmm maybe I will give it a go then from reading your replies. I guess I'm allowing my self to biased because I've tried the one that was given away for free on Origin.

There are a few people who bought the game after me and I've seen few complaints. If you liked the Underground games this will be a really nice surprise.

Obviously it's hard for me to say whether it's worth fifty quid as I paid 22 for it but I've got very few complaints and the ones I do have are minor

How are you finding it?

I'll be honest I have not played it since I changed my monitor and did my yearly GPU upgrade. I guess it just fell to the wayside, even more so when Far Harbor released for Fallout 4 (which is what FO4 should have been all along, it even looks better !).

No doubt at some point I will get back into this and push on and complete it but even if I never did (and I will) I still got over 20 hours out of it which for a game in this day and age is quite remarkable.

It's quite a fun game, got 2 cars on the go. The BRZ and a Mk1 Golf GTI.

Not so keen on the drift side of the game, doesn't seem to flow very well in a drift even yet in a normal race it works really well. I do find the game could do with some kind of day time mode as it is perhaps a bit gloomy and is best played at night rather than during the day.

5 hours down the rabbit hole, and I can see me putting more time into it, just have to do a reinstall on my PC as it's been playing up big time.

Bump ! almost a year later and I am back to playing this game. It started up and started a new game. I can't say I was best pleased, 'cause I had just procured me a 'rari and so on. So inevitably I bit the bullet and accepted that 20+ hours were lost. It wasn't so bad, because I haven't gamed at all in months now and needed to get back in the saddle.

So, overclocked water cooled Fury X handles it nicely and I have the benefit of 70hz over DP too.

I put about two hours in yesterday, then about the same today (will be going back later). Chose the Subaru this time instead of the Civic but I didnt fare too well in it until I started giving it a shove. Need to buy a drift car next, I don't like using the same car (it's hassle to switch everything around etc).

When I was back at the garage I did notice a save game showing my gold Porsche, but I had long sold it and bought a Ferrari. So god knows what's up with Origin's cloud save system.

I started the game again as I found that the BRZ I was using was a very hard car to drive and it felt like I was grinding my way through the levels.

So I started again and took the option of the FoxBody Mustang (lol the very same car you start out with thats then taken away from you) and it seems a better all round car.

I still don't like Drift events though

I'm using the Scooby this time around as I remembered the Honda hated drifting. It seems it is a faster car than the Honda. Doesn't seem as nimble though. The only thing I don't like about drifting is constantly having to go back to the garage to set it up for drift, then driving it 5 miles to the race with drift handling. There may be an easier way but if there is I have yet to find it tbh.

I generally suck at drifting events in games, but doesn't really seem to matter how the car is setup for me in this lol

I do OK. I don't really take it very seriously I just do what I have to to get the events done and then move back on to the racing part

Just saving up for a new car now. Scooby is pretty much as fast as it will ever be, now I want something more meaty !

Well it seems the decision was made for me. I was hoping to save up around $100k and skip the Porsches and go straight to the next segment. All of a sudden my car seemed very slow though, and I was getting nailed at the end in any medium race. So I bought myself a porker (I think it's a 911) and sold the Scooby, freeing up $50k to spend on the porker. So I am now back to winning which is nice

Gotta say it drifts beautifully. Far more precise.

i was looking at picking this up ... this is one of the games i missed out on taking so long to build a new gaming rig.
but from this thread, it seems a bit fiddly and garage-y for a NFS game ... am i wrong? is there a "just mash the gas" arcadey mode?
