    Enjoyed the demo on ps3 but definitely a bargain bin buy for me as it was not that much better then many other driving games out there today.

    Hot Pursuit was dreadful, with no redeeming features. I hope this game is better, although thats not asking much.

    Multiplayer is the only interesting part about racing-games and the only thing that counts in multiplayer is physics (as realistic as possible, with damage-model), tuning-options (ride-height, wings, dampeners, shocks, etc.) and good graphics (especially the environment falls short most of the time) with design-options for your cars (colours, stickers, etc).

    I'd wish for a mix with the physics of GT5 (or even better GTR-series), the cars of NFS Most Wanted and the graphics of Dirt3 (PC DX11 @ max settings). Then add some nicely detailed racetracks (variety is key!), some free roads to make your own races (like in Underground with the instant challenges) for some more multiplayerfun and we're done.

    To be honest, I've really been disapointed with the latest NFS games I bought (hot pursuit 2010, shift).

    I'd like to see a game like GP legend with Dirt3 graphics :D

    The game series has suffered since the moment they strayed from street racing to circuit. Pro Street has to be the most disappointing bunch of ass I've ever had the misfortune to play - as far as a racer is concerned. And Hot Pursuit would have been fun back in the 1990's on an arcade, but we have moved on since then.

    Series has got a lot to prove before I will touch it again.

    Shift 2 is brilliant. It takes a little investment of time and some tinkering, but absolutkey worth it. Effing brilliant racing experiance.

    Apart from that most of them have been toilet since underground 2
