    I think quite a few are on my friend list, but GT: saucy geoff. Will be lining up on the grid around 10ish.

    Still great fun playing this though haven't got the chance to play as much multiplayer as I would like.

    Wondered if the vehicles might be a bit too similar, but having driven about 30 there seems to be plenty of variety.


    I've added quite a few of you, but it's definitely a case of the more the merrier with autolog, so if anyone else wants to add me, feel free.

    Finally caved and picked this up for PC. Only messed around and explored so far, but seems fun. Bit annoyed there's no bonnet cam though - I don't like third person and the bumper cam is too low.

    But exploring is entertaining as it smashing the cops off the road.

    Running mostly at 60fps, but with some annoying stutters that drop 15 frames occasionally. Hoping the cause can be fixed as it doesn't look so far like it's related to visual complexity.

    @Maturin I did see someone on the NFS Gaf thread post about a tweak where you could change the position of the useless bumper cam. I'll try and track it down.

    Will I be able to change it on the Vita? ;-) It annoys me no end.

    All I could find was this video i'm afraid. There's not much in terms of instructions in the video description sadly, just a download link.

    @dominalien Sadly I can only find a PC hack so far!

    I took down the last car earlier and up popped 175gp :) very happy, managed 3 cheveo's while beating him.

    Played my first bit of MP tonight, it is fuckin horrible, at least it is in a public match. I'm sure with some of you fine fellows it is fun, but still...

    Give my straight races anyday of the week.

    What car/set up* ? I assume you would want everyone to use the same, that way it is down to driver skill...and luck ;)

    *I can't remember if it lets you choose

    Ha, good work. I'll try and nick it back later on! Good to get some competition in before Tricky gets on board.

    Bit of a weird shortcut, the checkpoints suggest you shouldn't be able to get away with it! Found it by accident.

    @SaucyGeoff yeah, i'd actually experimented with it before but as it read 'check point missed' i'd never driven it through to conclusion. :D

    good stuff.

    I had one of those too, was about 40mph off the pace on the first run, never thought I'd manage it.

    Does abyone know if its possible to turn off the speed cameras in this game. The flashing is really annoying all the time. Does anyone else notice it?

    lol I managed that veyron challenge today at lunch I was about 5mph off the pace when I did it the first few times but that was because I kept crashing once at some point.

    Agreed. Also, the flash when you go through a garage and get repaired. Also, turn off the traffic during races, it changes it from a skill game to a test of luck as to whether or not someone pulls out on you during the last 60 seconds of a race, if I wanted that I'd just buy a dice and roll it over and over again. and crash replays, get rid. And the 10 second delay after races before The menus become available again, get rid of that shit. And let me choose the colour of my car rather than it being random. And put some indicators on the road when the race suddenly changes course, save me overshooting because I don't check the minimap every 2 seconds. Sometimes they're there, other times, nothing.

    Sort all that out and it's my favourite game ever

    Even on the lowest settings the game looks great and is oodles of fun.  It just seems rather short.  Most wanteds are all dusted and I have seen all the city and don't really have an urge to keep playing.

    While I loved the game I can't help but feel disappointed both with the tech and the content.

    The singleplayer is very uninspired, despite the freedom in choosing your path. You level up a few cars and you can finish all the Most Wanted races and you're done. Your rivals have no personality and the city has no life, unfortunately.

    Just straight up races.  Would have been cool to have the most wanteds as staged missions.  Do X to find out who they are.  Do Y to locate them.  Do Z to make them race you etc.  Give them character of some form. As it is it feels like a quick fumble behind the bike sheds rather than a slow tease with a ball bursting finale.

    should have made the single player similar to midnight club: LA that was great.

    @SaucyGeoff

    I have seen my rather lovely Arsenal badge crest looking at me from a few Billboards :)
