    Critereon, Is it too much hasle to put some kind of volume normalisation on the multiplayer voice chat?

    I've just had to rip my headphones off a couple of times after having my ear drums almost destroyed.

    The Wii U version is a top notch arcade racing simulator; I'm really enjoying it.

    Yep its a really decent racer.

    I can't imagine it being the Wii U version has much, if anything at all, to do with it being decent as its the same game, but yes, it is good.

    MP is where it shines imo, getting 8 people together online was great fun.

    Not that it'd matter as I'd still buy it, but is 8-player online just racing, or more similar to Burnout Paradise and the silliness of just charging about having fun?

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    It's racing + sillyness of charging about having fun.

    It's got cool in between event challenges and some of the challenges are focused on jumping + crashing into each other.

    Anyone else find that despite getting 60fps capped on the PC it's still sluggish?

    Manky-Crack for any challengers, bring it on! ;)

    Me too! Just to get that silly trophy, I really hate MP trophies... and also realised that those who only own the game on the Vita dont seem to count towards the 5 friends trophy so have to hassle a friends friend to add me so to speak:-P

    X201 maybe we can arrange a quick session over the coming days?

    Has anyone else noticed that the number of events has more than doubled with the latest update (if you look at all events for every car, not just unique events)? It used to be 215 (41 cars with 5 events each, plus 10 Most Wanted races), now it's 502 (61 cars with 8 events each, plus 14 Most Wanted races). I used to have a little gold icon against each car, now I don't any more.

    Yep. Noticed me losing "gold status" for some of my cars since the DLC came out - mind you I only noticed this after I bought most of it - there are some new upgrades you can get hold of via new races.

    Now I'm not sure if this also happens even if you didn't buy the DLC? Certainly would be quite cheeky by EA but what's new.

    Could some of you guys do me a favour please and have a look at your Speed Points totals shown on the Driver Details screen. Does it add up to your total shown when you're playing the game? I'm hoping it does so that I can get an idea of what mine should actually be.

    Been getting back into this for the last week or so, not sure why i stopped playing it but its still brilliant.

    Decided to pick one car and stick with it for a while - absolutely no contest, i went for the Audi R8 Spyder, what an absolute beast.

    Had an hour on the MP too (which i hadnt tried before) and its surprisingly good, it offers a really good sense of competition and achievement - it would seem there are still quite a lot of people playing it too (360).

    Easily one of the best racers this gen.....

    Really enjoying getting back into this thanks to PS Plus, after stupidly trading in my copy a few months ago - is anybody up for getting a multiplayer session organised for one night this week maybe?

    Is there any kind soul who's up for helping me get a couple of online trophies (all I need for the platinum)? It should only take about half an hour - ideally Thursday at about 9, but I could probably do any evening...

    PS3 version

    @DUFFMAN5 - yes, that's the one!! No need for coms. Wednesday should work, and I think you're already on my FL.

    Shouldn't take more than half an hour....

    Thank you!

    @DUFFMAN5 @kosigan

    Well, I only need one partner, but the more the merrier!

    Wednesday works for me. I'll aim to be on from 8:30 ish, although it'll probably be closer to 9pm

    HI mate
    Are you still requiring help ? if so what do I need to do ?
    ...also there is a certain game on at 21:00 so the nearer to 20:00 the better :)

    Yes - still need help. I'll do my best to be online as early as possible, but I don't usually get home from work until after 7, and need to help Mrs F_P put the piglets to bed, eat dinner etc...

    You just need to be in the game, and I'll drop you an invite and we'll need to complete 5 (? I think) races. Shouldn't take long, and happy for you to drop off once we're done :)

    @DUFFMAN5 many thanks for the quickie tonight. ;)

    Greatly appreciated,  and I'll happily return the favour another time.

    Guys, how does this compare to Burnout Paradise? I had that on PS3 for a short while and just couldn't get into it compared to past Burnouts. The open world any route shit confused the heck out of me. I'd rather have fixes tracks. Is Most Wanted more open world stuff?

    It's quite a lot like Paradise. You could say it's a spiritual successor.

    @BurnoutJunkie - it bears some resemblance to Paradise, but the races are checkpoints based, so you have a fixed route to follow. Ambush events are different, you can go anywhere trying to escape the cops.

    As others have said, while it's set in an open-world city, rach race has a defined route for you to follow, so you might enjoy it more. MW is a cracking game IMO - I loved it on Vita and have been happily replaying it on PS3, to the point where I'm a few easy trophies away from the Platinum.

    If you're after a fixed-track racer, check out NFS Shift 2 or Grid 2 - both are worth a look.
