I think this deserves a thread of it's own as a good number of us are very interested in the title.


For me, I've been waiting for a decent none serious racer since Burnout. I hoped that Test Drive Unlimited 2 would have been that racer but it was a woeful dog with an almost broken handling scheme.

Anyway, I hope to get hands on with this at the Eurogamer Expo so I'll be able to tell you if the handling is off or not.

This is the EA press conference from Gamescom on Need for Speed Most Wanted. It starts with the multiplayer trailer and then has the developers (Criterion, who made Burnout Paradise) explaining various aspects of the game.


I'm definitely interested in this game and if the hands-on at the Eurogamer Expo next month shows it to be decent, it'll be a definite pre-order.

Very much looking forward to this. Burnout meets NFS, what more do you want from a racing game?

i,ll be getting this, multiplayer video did it for me. I notice that there is no crash damage on the cars. Manufacturers dont like games that show there cars all bashwd up. Dont think this will spoil it. Prefer to drive a porche to a hawker hunter.

I think that's the original titles car list. :(

The Audi A4 and the Lotus Elise are old models. Ok I admit the Elise could be in but the R8 missing from Audi list is suspicious.

2nd November in Europe - they always release games on a Friday.

Game release has been added to the Events calendar. Don't forget that any of you can add games releases to the Events calendar too, along with games events. :)
