    Normally I am not much into racing games but this looks very expensive. The possibility that boats and airplanes can be used is also very good in my opinion. I wonder if such an huge effort is worthwhile with regard to the sales figures of racing games?

    Looks pretty good. I always wanted to check out the first one so I might give this a go.

    The first one was not interesting to me but as far as I know it was supported for a long time. With the possibilities for cars, airplanes, off-road vehicles and boats this title has the potential to sweep the stagnant NFS away (my opinion). Let's see how the driving will end up.

    For me it was one of the most impressive games of the E3. Never before I saw such production values in a racing game. It's hardly to believe that it is at least 2000 square miles large.

    It's definitely looking better than the NFS game that was just announced. Cut-scenes during driving/racing? WTF are you thinking EA?

    Is the new nfs game by the same people who though nfs rivals would be improved by removing support for steering wheels ?

    I'm stoked for this. I'm not super into racing, but the open world aspect makes this sort of game more palatable to me. That's why I got horizon and had a lot of fun with it, but this seems next level.
    The first one was already intriguing, considering the use of the entire US as a map, but it felt and looked so last geny and came out just when everyone wanted to see flagship next gen titles. Now that this sequel looks like a proper ps4bone game, and the motherfucker also has flying, consider me sold.

    No idea. When I saw it at the EA conference, I was thinking, "OK, cute, but it's just a trailer basically." When they were doing a live demo and the cutscenes were still part of the racing, I just couldn't believe it.

    wasn't there a burnout game that did something similar? I think that's their inspiration.
    Also, the first unveiling the last nfs was also criticized for the overly stylistic camera swings as the car drifted. I think, for the context of a demo, the heavy-handedness of that stuff is less ofensive.

    I hate that "Lets destroy car handling in order to make it easy to drift" mentality
