I just played it for few hours then haven't touch it for months. Is the drifting tyre direction fix yet?
The biggest turn-off from this game for me was the slot machine-like upgrading system. Why should I depend on gambling to upgrade a car, especially in a full price game?
To each his own. It's actually kind of fun, IMO. With the new quick upgrade packs, it has really hit the sweet spot in terms of balance.
Never really noticed a particular imbalance as there is always a work around if you simply wait 10 minutes and buy the sparts, not to mention you get to stop a roll on the slot machine, dictating at least one of the outs. All in all gambling it ain't (relatively speaking).
The Photo Mode doesn't allow for action shots while online, so forget about getting any cool drift or jump shots, or even any shots of you & a friend ducking and dodging through traffic. Nope, just static, parking shots. And you can't even turn the wheels to profile the car.
Imo, they could learn a thing or two from spending some quality time with The Crew, MCLA, or TDU2. It's not like they have to re-invent the wheel to provide us with the basic features of an open world racing game.
But... That's what this article and thread are pertaining to... the Online Free-roam update...
But here's a reasonable question: Why would that particular aspect behave any differently in online mode than it would in offline mode? Evidently it does behave differently, as you have pointed out, but no one would expect it to.
