Well done, EA Games Image

So good to be true.... :shock:
Everything sounds amazing

The game will take on the new black in videogame and movie aesthetics, using a bleach bypass filter. The look of NFSMW will see a simple colour palette with high contrast, with more silver and darker blacks, all avoiding de-saturation. This new graphical twist will form part of the key sales message for the game.


Hopefully the graphics will get improved with a new graphic engine.

There will be no racing during the nighttime, with all the action taking place between sun up and sunset

At last! :D

Well the game is gonna rock if they do it well. I think November 2005 is too early if the game is gonna be that good. 100 cars, improved graphics..... :roll:

Wish list:
- Sepatared classes: A)Exotics. B)Muscle C)Imports
- Seat Leon, BMW M3 (cmon 100 cars, these 2 should be there now!)
- Ability to style up your car using little visual upgrades. Not heavy ricing (Underground style)
- A big number of police phrases!
- Rain, snow and stormy weather. Stormy sounds. Environmental sounds. Wind effects.
- Horn, white R-gear lights.

Lets back to the roots 8)

I only hope that this game will be available on the old XBOX when it comes out.
Because I'm not planning to buy a new XBOX2 for just this 1 game

What i want in the game:
- all car-types racing against eachother: eg. Ferrari vs Skyline :D
- Incar-view (has to be realistic)
- Engine tuning :?:
- DRIFTING :!: :!:

What's really important is the Locations. racing in the previous 2 games was BOOORRING (all my friends admit this too). No more boring night-time, always-sleeping cities, but locations all over the world.

Hm... the things I don't like about nfsu2 are:
---> poor engine for tuning A.I cars... very lame.
--->where are the black hoods?!?
--->I would like to see more detailed engine tuning... so I can learn something too :D
--->only racing at night... ok if you ask me
--->inside view, very needed, very, very.
--->More rim brands, and more sizes, everything should be possible, etc. Miata with 29'' rims O_o
--->no police, I hope they put it in

If it would make it in the form metioned in the article... GREAT!!

But I wouldn't be surprised when the game gets released it would differ greatly from whats described in the article.

Sounds good, but i'll wait and see

Do you remember that someone posted that NFSU2 was going to be name NFS Most Wanted, just because of some http, I don't remeber well. This means that this was in EA's mind for more than a year now. This also means that probably a team of graphic designers, and engineers are working on this game for some time already. I am concerned about the ammount of cars in the game, a 100, well EA put 30 in NFSU2 and some of them are Sh"@itty, I am not convinced of this ammount of cars. Well I definately want the Ferrari Enzo, F430, Mercedes SLK, Bugattis etc!

as long as they put them in difirent classis! so we don't have a Miata Beating a ENZO or anything like that...

rest sounds good but I will wait till it is confirmed! (atleast parts of it) cause I am not going to be disapointed on stuff that a in a article...

I got time!

Quoted from the website.
Posted by lex_vc
We're supposed to believe this when you can't even spell w-o-r-l-d right? It's not like you're a particularly reliable source. Plus, you did NOT post scans, at least not that I can see.

I'll believe it when I see it, or when I hear it straight from EA and Microsoft's mouths.

------------
Totally agree with this guy. In that article, they said they have a picture of the game yet they didn't post it. All I'm saying is don't get too excited until a word from EA is released. Yet, I can already see problems, visual customization. I don't want to see the crappy parts from UG2 put on supercars. It says that there isn't any night driving. Oh, now just 'cause UG2, we can't even race during the night. GIVE us options damn it!
I'm just saying based on info though I have some doubts on the information given.

Hmm. They might be going back to exotics again and wont include those street cars you guys love so much. Anyways to me and my friend, they say they dont believe it. If it was true, why didnt EA send us a press release about it.
