Here is a visual comparison released by EA. The first screenshot for each area is based on the 2010 release and the other is from the remastered version.
So I seen this is £35.00
That just seems really steep for what this game is no?
Does anyone have the pc version from back then, what does that look like on its highest settings?
Achievement wise, it's the same as PS3 with a few exclusions.I'm still a bit split. On one hand, I already got the Platinum on the PS3 version. On the other hand, it's arguably one of the most fun NFS games I've ever played, and there do seem to be some new stuff they're adding besides the graphical tweaks, like the new wraps and the revised photomode, as well as reports of new achievements. So I'll see what else gets offered. Besides, I never bought the Lamborghini or Porsche DLC, either.
Interesting - I wonder why those particular trophies/achievements were removed? And where was this confirmed?Achievement wise, it's the same as PS3 with a few exclusions.
The six trophies removed are:
Graffiti - Create a ‘New Post’ or ‘Write a Reply’ on the Wall
Share the Dream - Share a Dreamshot to the Wall
Socialite - Have 5 or more NFS Friends
Share the Joy - Dreamshot a BMW and share it with your Friends
Show Off - Take a photo of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS and share it with your friends
Pin-Up - Take 3 pictures of the Lamborghini Countach
I quoted you, but I have nothing against your comment. It's just a general behavior. It looks like nobody wants a new NFS game anymore.
Actually I played every NFS except the first one Road and Track. And NFS 2 was possibly the first PlayStation racing game I bought. NFS, Toca and GranTurismo were the only racers that I played for months. But I never got any preferences. The series going the arcade way is something that I accepted and usually enjoy playing the new games too. Even games like Undercover or 2015. I played those a lot too. It's just that.. those are old games and belong to the past. Like this remaster. It's a good arcade recer, but it's the same game. If this is enough to make fans happy then I'm fine.You did mention you haven't played those first games and I'm old enough to remember NFS Road And Track being Test Drive 2 The Duel killer.
I did download demo of Need For Speed 6: Hot Pursuit 2 and I immediately disliked it. Unrealistic feel of driving, no dashboards and rubber banding rivals.
It took fortunately less time to uninstall it than install.
I forgot how good the original looked. it was one of the few PS3 games I owned that I thought looked amazing, and the original does still hold up.Here is a visual comparison released by EA. The first screenshot for each area is based on the 2010 release and the other is from the remastered version.
Could be, I had only Gran Turismo 3 and couple WRC games with PS2.
Your mistake was playing the PC version and not the infinitely superior PS2 release.
Every console release before Underground (when they finally unified the PC and home console versions) were better than the PC versions.
Weirdly enough, EA thought PC gamers didn't deserve polished and well packaged games, just simulation. EA Canada made the first four NFS on consoles, but even when they switched to PC for the Porsche version (Eden Games made the PSX one), they followed the path of the previous NFS releases on PC (made by EA Seattle).
NFS HP2 for the PS2 was made by Black Box, haven't tried it, but make sense it's the superior version.
Wait, I thought it's common knowledge that the more sim oriented Porsche Unleashed is the better version?
I always rued missing playing this version because I played everything on PS1 until UG when I started moving to PC.
.... As much as I love Rom di Prisco, Saki Kaskas and Crispin Hands music, the PS1 version only use them when they were needed. If you are trying to represent each era of the 50 years Porsche has been around, the drum and bass trance of Rom di Prisco doesn't quite fit driving a 550 speedster.
The PC version has better physics but extremely poor presentation and HUD and a lack of care to detail. In the first game you got custom menu, music and racing tracks for each era.

If only there is a version with PC physics and PS1 menu/HUD/music.
That would be fantastic. I love Eden Games Vrally physics, very nice suspension. But they were a bit weird in some parts and collision physics were a disaster.
Although no matter what pre-Black Box NFS you choose, every single one has better physics than Ghost NFS.
