    Need for speed rivals LOL

    Put aside the fact there are loads of un skippable cut scenes and not mouse support int he menu The best feature has to be the locked frame rate to 30FPS.

    I will never understand why PC games get locked to 30fps. And considering this is a racing game. That is criminal!

    i expect the modders will find a way past this artificial roof.

    It looks like a PS3 game - wth were they thinking?!
    Usually i jump at every chance to drive the car of my dreams (Koenigsegg Agera R) but this game looks rushed.

    I pre-ordered it on Origin for PC and downloaded the client already. The frame-rate lock which is at 30 fps is absurd and just pathetic as I mentioned in the chat box, a pc game should not have a limit set over its framerate because otherwise whats the benefit of playing on a pc? The rest like no mouse support in menus and unskippable cut-scenes is not a big deal as far as the optimization for performance is good. As I have pre ordered it I got burnout paradise the ultimate box and nfs hot pursuit 2010 which is my favorite game so its not all that bad. I hope they will provide a future patch which then would unlock the framerate just like 1.1 in The Run which was also locked at 30 on pc prior to the patch.

    If you change the config ini to input 60 instead of 30 physics become bugged and the pace doubles. I heard something about giving a command via the console but that is just some unconfirmed info.

    Engines using the clients frame rate to determine physics are old hat. idtech did the same for Quake but 60FPS was optimal and things didnt start to go weird until bout 200FPS which when the games were new barely anyone could achieve.
    COD uses the same engine as its base although heavily modified but the movement physics are still base off the frame rate meaning if your PC is powerful enough you can do things like this.

    Linking physics velocity pace to frame rate is just such a retarded thing to do while developing an engine.

    IT is now with hindsight but in the 90s when JC coded idtech 2/3 it wasn't so much a problem.
    It has been fixed for Quake live and I think the idtech 5

    Yeah, I can't believe that they didn't add a way for veteran players to skip the tutorials/cutscenes, etc. But, at least, on the PS4, you don't have to watch the intro over and over.

    He does complain a bit too much though.

    So after playing it for quite a while I can conclude the following negative and positive things about the game.

    Negative.

    -Frame-rate lock at 30 fps
    -Graphical bugs appear on screen borders
    -In some occasions the rendering doesnt catch up properly
    -Small amount of cars
    -Very limited customization
    -No free roam option
    -Whole game is linked to the network
    -Lame menu interface
    -Unskippable cut-scenes
    -Repetitive assignments
    -Hot Pursuits feel like you are playing one of those games where you have chain guns and rockets attached to your car and you just cause mayhem. Really doesnt fit to a nfs game.
    -Annoying graphical particles and effects like watery windows in garage and dessert. Flying pieces of stuff all the time appearing on the screen.
    -Some noticeable stuttering due to 30 fps lock.
    - All Drive is an awful feature and just ruins the core gameplay and constantly interferes with events.
    - Police cars are very weak in terms of engine power and are extremely boring to drive
    - Big delay in actions like use of equipment or accessing an event, safehouse.
    - Flickering textures and shadows, very noticeable on landscapes.
    - You always compete or race against the same type of car, opponents dont have cars variety.
    - Constant host migrations.
    - Many bugs.

    Positive.

    +Impressive graphics
    +Good looking and various map
    +Detailed locations and appropriate hideouts, command posts.
    +Ferraris are back and in a good way
    +New mechanics and details on cars like opening and closing roofs on roadsters and visible cooling fans behind the grid (unfortunately they do not move and dont have an animation xD)
    +Badass narration
    +Very nice engine sounds and good music playlist
    +Very nice story yet could have more extent.

    What is the song playing in the background when you unlocked the aston martin vanquish as a racer? Went trough the whole list on youtube and couldnt find it.

    NFS Hot Pursuit II was a fantastic game and my favorite nfs. NFS HP 2010 was great as well and I extremely enjoyed playing it but the lack of ferraris indeed disappointed, however the cars list was the best out of all which existed in the nfs history.

    I find the commenter funny but when he says he's playing on the most powerful PC and that game seems to take a min to load I wonder if it's optimized for SSD's etc

    So they literally made the game on the console, and blatantly ported it over to the PC, and tacked in that there is a keyboard and said, to hell with it.....

    I'll keep watching you NFS. One day it will be worth it again

    Are the devs going to patch it so the frame rate doesn't govern the speed of the game?

    So if you run the game at 20FPS the game runs slower?
    IF so that is reminiscent of PAL(50Hz) vs NTSC(60Hz) games in the pre HD TV days.

    The game is fun, the cops are a bit annoying though....always get me before I can bank all the SP points that I earn.
