Likely not, pursuits are involved.

Sir Tristan

Likely not, pursuits are involved.

Ferraris have been involved in Pursuits in HP2. All 3 of 'em. I don't see the problem here.

But what I worry about is (says the developer guy on the hands-on) 'you get different cars as you progress through racer or cop career'.

This probably means Cayman S and Audi TT which we get in pre-order (anyone know if we can buy them later on with the game after it comes out as a DLC or something? or is there just no way of getting them but pre-ordering?) will only be in pursuit and racer versions respectively (IMO Audi makes a better cop car but oh well).

I seriously, seriously hope that this is not true and we get cars in both versions. If I don't get to race a 'classic' red&black Veyron or a stealth, grey Reventón, or even just a Speed Yellow Cayman S... I shall be very pissed indeed.

I know the SV and Reventón are a great idea - 2 extreme versions of Murcielago, one a stealthy jet (ideal for cops) and the other a road racer. But I'd like to be able to play the other way round too!

Completely agree the the 918 puts Porsche's styling to shame. I'd rather see the Carrera Gt in there, even if it is a bit old now.

No. They were available immediately.

The only game a Ferrari was cracked into by Arushan was Most Wanted as I'm sure you know.

But no, I have the PC version. You couldn't race Ferraris or Mercedes in NFS3:Hot Pursuit with police. But you can in HP2.

Also, Ferraris got the cosmetic damage. So that's not an issue. I don't see where it lies really.

Now Ferrari makes a big fuss about X360 and shit, why? Why is this so complicated? GT5 has them Forza does, wtf. This is some real stupid shit.

GT and Forza dont have police chasing you.

I was sure I was correct with my statement, aru had created the otools in order to use the Ferrari in pursuit, as well as importing cars.

As far as I remember, Ferraris have been involved in Pursuits in TDU.
Pursuits in TDU are significantly different than those in NFS. If you hit a road block in TDU, you're busted immediately, in NFS, you run until you're forced to stop.
Licenses differ from company to company when they are purchased for game use.

Those might vary from version to version man, so I won't argue (especially with your knowledge), but I could run from police in a 360, 550 or F50 anytime from start. Also, the intro is based upon using a Ferrari in a chase. And the said Ferrari gets dirty in a shortcut o.O oh no! A spot on ze Ferrari, monday thursday, wednesday, sunday, saturday (whatever the wrong order from the godfather is).

The thing is though, they could provide Ferraris to race without cops in a certain mode.
Also, what's wrong with running from police in a game that states you should NOT repeat those moves on road. It's not like people are gonna smash real police roadblocks with them.

'Oh no, I don't want to see my car smashed, because in reality it's indestructible. And in reality, proper police never tries to perform a traffic stop on a speeding Ferrari (maybe in Italian villages thats the case) out of sheer respect. '

Thing is, many 'noble' brands (Aston Martin, Jaguar, Porsche) with great, long reputations not only let their cars be in pursuits but they let huge ricey bodykits be put on them.
I understand aggressive Lambos and muscles but Aston? License agreements are pretentious shit agreements, exclusively signed by real pricks and asshats with no sense of fun whatsoever.

If Ferrari or EA has proper reasons for this they should come clean on what are Ferrari's terms on prancing horses escaping pigs. Their terms on grotesque THEME PARKS are much more loose, aren't they?

Thanks for reading this rant, I have peace of mind that my opinion has been expressed and I relieved myself. This site is a brilliant piece of internetz. People who like stuff that I do, albeit with different opinions.

06-19-2010, 08:07 PM
If only it was as classic as HP2 though...I mean putting NOS in this game come on!. I think a Murcielago SV is powerful enough to evade a Reventon (which is similar to a standard Murcielago) without using NOS every 5-10 seconds!. NOS just completely takes away the classic feel for me. I was ok with cop cars in HP2 PS2 using boost to catch up, That was ok but NOS is just to try hard-ish, They better have an option to turn it off otherwise that game blows!. Like Sir Tristan did I am also expressing my opinion in rant form. I would go-on but others have covered most of the problems with this game. Anyway thanks for reading ;).

Meh... this car is such a racer that you have to put on headphones (IRL) to drive it. PITA, especially for a GT-focused NFS. Normal F1 would do.

F1 LM/GTR should go to Shift only.

Ugh, I have to rant on about Ferrari again.

Stupid pricks up their own asses.

In HP2 there was an event in the Hot Pursuit mode called 360 Spider Delivery and 550 Barchetta Delivery. Guess what, they were chased by the cops.

So, it's NOT down to: damage (been smashed before), cops (were in HP2), ricing (there isn't any in the new one).

It's all down to Microsoft and Ferrari and their greed.

Ferrari seems pretty generous putting their logos on BASEBALL CAPS, and a THEME PARK (Ferrari World Abu Dhabi)...

Licensing is a world of twisted pricks.

Don't worry, they can't stop us eventually putting the Shift and Forza 3 Ferraris in the game. :)

But I must say Ferrari could thing a little less about money and more about showcasing their brand in as many platforms as possible. This applies to the relationship between Porsche and EA as well.

Actually since there will be no customization or tuning, having variants for certain cars is welcomed, provided there's a significant margin in performance.

I don't think there will be any way to use addon cars, 'cause it's an online game, so even if you can replace your own car with an SL 65 AMG for example, your opponents still can see the car you're replacing 'cause they don't have the files on there PCs, which they need to have to see your mod car.

That was the longest English sentence I ever said. :P

EDIT: Oh damn. I found this post:

Hot Pursuit has an offline Career for both sides of the Law, online games which will most likely have CvR, Single Race, and Sprints, as well as most likely some other racing modes not yet mentioned.



Anyway, I got a question: Is that Bugatti in the videos a Veyron 16.4 EB or the brand new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Supersport (http://www.n-tv.de/img/99/990061/Img_16_9_680_BugattiWR0507001.jpg)?

It's not often you see one of these bad boys in the flesh, so we scrutinized the details to try and identify the specific model.

We think it's the 2005 Ford Transit in white, but it's tricky to pin down the exact year since this one's sporting a few "custom" accessories - the after-market roofing ladders, ultra-rare plastic storage tube and bespoke tree decals.

Stunning.

Where you got this info?
\\If I don't wrong, ALL cars in HP3 will opened in start of the game. So, you can use in first cop mission Veyron or Reventgton (but I will use ZR1Vette). But if this game may have pursuit ZR1, it will be my best game.

So wait, if the cars aren't customizable, that seems to take away most of the fun of the game. The other NFS games had the customizable cars which was half the fun. But it is official that the cars won't be customizable? Neither Pursuit or Civie?

Nfspeed26
07-27-2010, 02:21 AM
Nope. Its seems this NFS is one going back to the roots of NFS itself, Where cars weren't able to be customized up to HS with the exception of "Upgrades 1,2 and 3". However it would be nice to see upgrades for each of the cars excluding the pursuit versions.

It would be nice if the cars could be customizable, but I guess not this game. maybe the next NFS game will contain customizable cars. The AutoSculpt feature was really cool because you can make the parts to your liking. That should be in the next game after NFS Hot Pursuit. And isn't the game in an open world setting like Carbon and Most Wanted?

Apparently it is free roam. However the setting looks different from Carbon and MW looking at the photographs and trailer. I don't really think it needs customization. Because alot of people can ruin cars by ricing them for example, and the AI customizations are complete rubbish. That being said I wouldn't mind seeing customization options similar to the Forza Motorsport series, They have a well balanced range of cutomizations in that game.

I'm all for customization (maybe not in something as purist as Hot Pursuit should be, then again it has free roam), Undercover-style. They had masses of vinyls and types of customization, possibilities were endless, body parts were not too numerous and that's good, only 1 widebody per car as the most badass body...

And opponents were hand-tuned. And some were pretty good designs.

What bugs me is NOT the possibility of the player to rice a car - this is not my business because I don't rice cars. But when opponents are riced and I have to look at it - like MW and UG2 - I'm annoyed.

Spoiler selection up to Carbon was disgusting. They looked like Wal-Mart parts.

And I hope to see a Mustang GT, although I highly doubt it will be in there since they already confirmed the GT500.

08-25-2010, 01:44 PM
Lots of Porsches, yay!

But for this game, they really should add the Grand-Tourery 911 Turbo S. I mean what fits worse in here than the raw, track-focused, stripped-out RS? If they only gave us the normal GT3 please?

I also hope the Audi R8 V10 is there to be a different, if platform-sharing, beast to the Superleggera. I hope they convey how different those cars feel, with GTish comfiness vs raw bull power. From same engine and platform.


(Racer Panamera + other 4doors/big coupés would be nice too as a heavy GT class)

Well, this game is only about the latest and greatest. So no tuners from the 90s. :D

Yesyesyes!

Ever noticed (exept for Underground-era) that it was ALWAYS in the essence about the latest and greatest?

In HS, they threw in a 355 Spider and a 360 Modena - because those were the latest in their bodytype. And in HP2, there was only a 360 Spider and 550 Barchetta - again the newest/rarest...

I am genuinely surprised a 996 Carrera S didn't make it in there.

Sometimes I'm a little disappointed with the hottest/latest policy. For example, I can't get my hands on a Carrera or mildly-specced (no carbon seats or rollcage) GT3 anywhere, in any game. Turbo tends to be the entry 911 in most games.

Or in UC, they put in an IS-F. Maybe I want to see how a IS350 stacks up against other V6s? or how a giant-turbo IS200 would make RWD competition for an Evo?

etc, etc.




My dream was always to have 4 engine/body versions of about 100 cars + the possibility to choose opponents. Plus replays/photo mode.

I just hope that if the carlist provided on this particular site is correct, Criterion decide to put the DBS, One-77, V12 Vantage, Koenigsegg Agera, either of the two Diablos, Gallardo LP550-2 Balboni, McLaren F1, CLK GTR Super Sport, SL 65 Black Series, SLR McLaren 722 Edition, SLS AMG AND Carrera GT on the racer side because if not I will literally write a complaint letter.:D

Of course not, the car list is far too big if filled with ??? spaces.

Anyways, it's kinda weird that none of those mentioned were there, I didn't catch the word 'Turbo' there, which both Panamera and Cayenne utilise.

But the Targa is the perfect Grand Tourer 911...

In fact, it would be cool to have racers in open-top form and hardtop, while cops only fixed-head.

The fact that the Veyron Grand Sport might be there, racer-only, is intriguing.

Also whats funny is that you can use the GT500 Super Snake in "Basic" version, and limited edition grants you access to GT500.

Stop being a troll. Game-Developers do have a concept of their game. They don't create games just by messing around. Criterion's concept is not to "Put as much friggin cars into the game as possible to please everyone" but putting modern sports- and supercars into it. That's at least what Sullivan said in all the interviews - not literally.

[Assumption of this being legit intel]
If this is the list... I'm in heaven.

God this is amazing. I'm getting everything I want.

And there's Ferrari Spirit in there with those Maseratis, the Official Next Best Thing.

I ALWAYS wished for multiple versions, those are the best pick.

Take the 911 - you get the GT-like, mild-mannered, PDK, 4wd Targa 4S. And the hardcore GT3 RS.

Veyron - cops get a 16.4, racers get the glamorous Grand Sport[/Assumption of this being legit intel]

Seriously, if this IS the list... I am so far from disappointed.

We'll get the Japanese contingent, seen as great cars without the immediate assumption that they NEED to be enhanced by tuning and shit. Just perceived as great, NFS-deserving cars, like in TNFS.

We'll get the epic Evo vs STI battle. We'll get Panamera and Quattroporte police cars. We'll get midrange coupé/GT battles (XKR, Targa 4S, M3, Corvette C6, SL63?), we'll get supercars.




EPIC WIN. (if true) - best NFS car list yet.

Alright, I give you guys that. If that were to happen though, I would need some 60 platforms.

And yes, it would be cool to have a series of outlines of cars (like shadowed or something) with badge and model logo. Every one should have 3-4 versions of engines/bodystyles. But they're no stupid bodykits, they're whole different versions.

EA claim they will have 66 cars in the game while they will have around 40 + ~20 variants.
Yes, they may be faster, they may be roadsters/spyders/cabrios but they're ultimately the
same cars. I'd prefer 1000 times an old Diablo SV instead of one of the 4 Gallardos.

Come on, I'm guessing they didn't even have to start making the model from scratch.
Oh, and don't you feel cheated? They said some cars will be exclusive to cops/racers.
It seems that most of those exclusives will be just performance versions for the cops,
ergo basically the same cars.

And mind you, I'm mainly disappointed about the selection of Lambos (well, Koenigseggs also look
the same). I'm OK with Porsches. And the Maseratis suck. I really don't know what people see in
those cars. They're not even half of the class of Ferrari. But that's a biased opinion. :D

@DoomBringer
Thanks. It works. ;)
Every page starting from 72 and going down reveals the name of the car. Sloppy EA, real sloppy.
I'll add a picture as proof in case EA fix it. So, the list is legit. I didn't see the CVPIs though.

So? It's always good to have some variety, even if it's versions.

I don't feel cheated at all even if they're not whole new cars - I LIKE this variety

But I guess you could say there isn't a point in putting in an R8 V10 AND a Gallardo - same platform, engine... waste of space right?

Way too many Gallardos, way too many 911s, way too many Corvettes...

Carbon Motors E7 is just LOL.

Where's the Chevy Caprice?

What's the archaic Crown Victoria doing in an NFS game when there's the Taurus?

Thumbs up to Bentley, Koenigsegg and Maserati.

Thumbs down to cabrio versions (hated them since NFSHS). What's the point of these cars if they don't have folding tops?

No sports saloons except for Panamera and Quattroporte. Where's M5? Where's RS6? Where's E63 AMG?

No Lexus LF-A?

No Audi RS5?

The list is way better than other recent NFS games, which were overloaded with Japanese cars, but EA should stop favouring Lamborghini and Porsche. That's almost the entire Lamborghini lineup in the game. And why have both the Carrera GT and the 918 Spyder? This is no longer Porsche Unleashed (unless I'm missing something). Who the **** chooses these damn cars anyway? We guys from this board can write a far better list.

And yes, it would be cool to have a series of outlines of cars (like shadowed or something) with badge and model logo. Every one should have 3-4 versions of engines/bodystyles. But they're no stupid bodykits, they're whole different versions.

But BTW, what's exactly wrong with passing them off as full cars? It just gives more options.

More options of what, I don't need these kinds of options, as I know the convertible version will always be the same as the regular one, but crappier (it was like that in Porsche Unleashed).

Having cabrios only makes sense in TDU, in which you can cruise around and pretend you're in Hawaii.

And mind you, I'm mainly disappointed about the selection of Lambos (well, Koenigseggs also look
the same). I'm OK with Porsches. And the Maseratis suck. I really don't know what people see in
those cars. They're not even half of the class of Ferrari. But that's a biased opinion.

Maserati is awesome and classy in its own way.

Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni
Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4
Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder
Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera

That's just "Same Car Different Versions"!!

Cabrio versions FTW. In HP2, it was the best choice ever for them to put in a 360 Spider, not Modena. It made it more glamorous.

Turbo S Cabriolet is there to amplify its Grand Tourerness.

I agree on the saloons, actually - but they're presumably cop-only.

Maybe they'll make a '4door DLC' or '90s DLC' and shizz.

Im not complaining about Gallardo + Gallardo Spyder, what annoys me is that they still add 2 more versions of Gallardo.
I'd take a Diablo SV + RX-7/Supra/911 Turbo RS (I loved that car in Porsche Unleashed, oh those hard races in Zone Industrielle....one mistake and you are spinning <3) over those 2 Gallardos.

I have nothing against variety but not when its that way.

We either get 60 different cars, or 66 cars in total but about 20 of them are just different versions of already available cars.

Honestly, why not just take the best option and put in a lot of cars AND their versions (if there are any)

Anyway, seeing as this game will have DLC, we will get more cars.
Questions are: Which cars, and what pricing for the DLC.

I'm sure there should be:

Grand Touring Pack or the like (super 4doors, big Coupés, luxo sports)

90s Supercar Pack (legends like F50, EB110, Diablo, F355, Cala, CLK-GTR Street, GT1 Street)

Muscle Car Pack and Import Pack (sure of it)

1988-2001 cars (I wish) with an epic 928 GTS vs SL500 vs XKR vs (stretching it) Z8 shootout (yay for 90s euro muscle).

I want 'unfair' races with Z8 vs 360 Spider. And 928 GTS vs Cayenne GTS (the new, lighter one they =might= make later). Saleen Mustang vs XKR vs DB7.

anyway, i also think they shouldnt add more versions of 1 car. And usually only old(er) muscle's get added.. what about old(er) other cars? :)

NFS 5 did not have that at all.

NFS 5 had about 15 cars overall - the figure of 80 was achieved with versions (and even then with missing out on facelifts and some versions).

But they were most definitely 'treated' as complete different cars. They were labelled separately.

Example of a list (from Modern Era, Class 2):
'98 911 Carrera
'98 911 Carrera 4
'98 911 Carrera Cabriolet
'98 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet.

But that was the idea of the game. You were able to drive ANY Porsche up to date (which wasn't true because some were missing even after official addon cars were released). Still, you had a much wider choice than just 911 (997). You could go (993), (996), etc. And these cars handled and looked quite different.

Who gives a damn about glamour when you're ****ING RUNNING AWAY FROM THE POLICE? This is a RACING game. In a RACING game, cabrios are WORSE. They accelerate, handle and brake worse. Simple as that. This is not GTA or even TDU, so I want the most apt versions of the cars that I can find. And seriously, what's the point of having Gallardo and Gallardo Spyder in the same game? They're the same cars. As I said before, this is not TDU where there's a point in having a convertible version (you race with the coupé and cruise with the convertible). I don't care about looking glamorous when I'm busted by the police.

Jesus, I'm becoming tired of reading your senseless daydreaming about your perfect NFS game.

I would actually be fine with the convertibles if it didn't mean less variation (as in, have more different cars to compensate for all the different versions of the same car). And if they had the BMW M6 coupé as well as the convertible.

Personally, I really don't care what cars they put in the game. As long as the driving performance physics and engine sounds are accurate, then there are very few reasons to complain about. I wish cars of various engine types are included, ranging from inline 4s, V6, inline 6, flat plane/cross plane V8s, low-rev high-revving V10s, and V12s from different car manufacturers that has different characters.

I'm sure any cars would look fantastic both in daylight and night in the game.

Looking glamorous? The ****? It's Hot Pursuit, son, not Hot Cruise.

I'd gladly have the convertible versions as unlockables or extras to add replay value to the game. Why bother with filling slots with pointless cabrios which are the worse versions of the coupes.

Also Mazda RX-8 and Impreza suck. Who will even bother to use them when you have Bugatti, Koenigsegg, Lamborghini and Pagani?! Thought they were supposed to be traffic cars.

Also a Ferrari+90's cars DLC is a must.

It's just a game, man. It's cool to have convertibles, because some people like them. If you don't, get a fixed head in-game, JEEZ.

Anyway I'm so tired of the stupid assumption convertibles are just for cruising in Monaco and some gay driving without purpose on some island where they filmed LOST.

The thing is, maybe **** the grand tourers off altogether and leave us just Elises and Supercars? Is this what NFS is about? Just the fastest you can get? Make Nissan GT-R, McLaren F1, ZR-1 and Veyron the only cars in the game then.

I loved the HP2 atmosphere - many things sucked about it, but I loved the schematic of a race. First minute 6-8 cars cruise on the road, barely going 150km/h, enjoying the scenery. Then cops show up and you get absolute CHAOS on-road. Competetiveness arises. Dude, it should be like that.


In HP2, if they put in a Modena, not a Spider, it wouldn't be as cool when it overtakes you, gleaming with Giallo Modena, slipping into oversteer on the corner with such grace. A Modena would have looked like a race car on the track. But the Spider won me over.

Here, if the 911 Turbo S was a Coupé, there would not be sufficient contrast to GT3 RS. Those two show how varied the 911 range is.

You get LP560 Superleggera. And R8 Spyder. Same chassis and engine, polar difference. AND you get everything in between (R8s, Gallardos...).

That's the kind of hate and fear NFSMW+ injected into us.

Old NFS was about the same old dumbass cops making things a little more difficult and saying funny lines, not being The Enemy #1... *search&destroy mission*.

In old NFS you ran away from the police. In MW you chased police cars to smash and rack up more bounty.


Thus I love the new car list and the whole thing the game looks to become. Now excuse me, I just re-installed Shift.

Lol I am so perfectly happy with all those cabrios. They're just using the opportunity that was there for ages, unused - put in versions of cars already in the game, thus increasing the marketable car count and variety of races. Thumbs up from me, they're businessmen after all this isn't fine art or anything.


BTW nearly all classic NFS games featured roadsters/cabrios as well. Take, well, anything from NFS3 to NFS6. And from NFS4 on you could have (or have to have [HP2]) your top down. That for me was attractive.

I think it's stupid to moan about 4 versions of Gallardo.

No, they COULDN'T be replaced with a Diablo, Countach, Diablo SV and VT. No, the 911s COULDN'T be replaced by 993s and such.

Because they didn't have the right licenses. Which means, when you have the Gallardo, why not grab the other 3 versions as well, to beef up the car list. Because WHY NOT? Would you rather not have them? I certainly wouldn't like a game in which the only version is the beefiest.



Also nobody noticed that half of GT5's 950 cars are VERSIONS. 20 Skylines, Supras, RX-7s and Z's respectively, per generation.

Who gives a damn about glamour when you're F***ING RUNNING AWAY FROM THE POLICE?

I do. Correction: I most certainly f***ing do. :)

Ask any racer, any real racer, and they will tell you that – although it certainly does matter whether you win by an inch or a mile – the most important thing is to cross the finish line in a red RX-7 with a matching red (or even clashing green) neon flashing underneath.

You know, for a while I was wondering why you would say something as, hmm, naïve as that, and then it hit me: what cars is Zpectre into? Oh yeah, BMW’s. No wonder the very notion of automotive glamor seems so alien to him.

Having recently browsed an old thread (http://www.nfscars.net/forum/showthread.php?t=25210) wherein users were encouraged to share their perceptions of ‘the most beautiful car’ I was amused to find a few entries of yours on the very first page. What did you feel compelled to post as, one would assume, your most immediate association with automotive beauty? A plain-looking, late 1990’s sedan. With a BMW badge, needless to say. Granted, it was an indisputably elegant model and I’m sure its build quality is impeccable but… I still couldn’t believe that – out of thousands of visually attractive machines – you went with this. Of course, it got even better when you posted a hapless 2002 Turbo (!) running out of ‘presentable’ BMW offerings perhaps. Really, as subjective as this can get, I would’ve understood and forgiven you for something as infinitely more palatable as an early 1970’s 2800CS, a 2000CS with its unmistakable front end… hell, even a 3200 – although, of all the Gordon Keeble rehashes Giugiaro did, that one was probably the least interesting and the least charming. But the 2002 Turbo?! You might’ve as well posted a bloody NSU 1200 (which is similar, after all)! Or gone the whole hog and proposed the ‘clown shoe’ which, I’m guessing, was BMW’s way of finding out just how many people would be tasteless enough to accept the brand’s aesthetic transition from merely ordinary to downright atrocious.

In this context, the glorified M1 felt rather obligatory, eh? (Even though you seem to think it looks better in a racing bodykit and I prefer it stock but what the hell.) Still, as much as I love and respect this truly unique chapter in BMW’s history, I can’t help but notice that the design appears somewhat, uhm, pedestrian and rather inadventurous in comparison with contemporary mid-engined equivalents.

It’s like the BMW execs instructed Giugiaro to keep his more spirited tendencies in check ‘because our customers are not really concerned with the looks of a car. You know, this guy, Pietro Frua, has been bombarding us with styling proposals ever since the mid-60’s (*) and we’ve had enough of this Italian crap. Especially after that Glaserati thing he did which we had to discontinue because people kept confusing it with some 2-door variant of the Quattroporte. Oh yeah, and don’t stick too closely to that outrageous 1972 Turbo concept either. Keep it simple, bud.’ Thus, apparently, Giugiaro did what they wanted, coming up with a draft of an inconspicuous-looking mid-engined car, worthy of BMW’s function-over-form tradition.

I may be wrong about that but I imagine that – performance-related matters aside – most people would go with the voluptuous curves of the Maserati Bora / Merak, the raw beauty of DeTomaso’s Pantera or the more lighthearted design of the early Lotus Esprit before choosing the M1 (if those cars were available in a given game, that is).

More importantly though – and this is where the point is about to emerge – they might go with another timeless mid-70’s Giugiaro design: the DeLorean DMC-12. Everyone knows that, performance-wise, it was a piece of crap with its disappointing PRV V6. Everyone seems to love it regardless, and you can see some interpretation of the model in such fun-oriented titles as Carmageddon 2, Interstate ‘82, GTA: Vice City, FlatOut 2, Scarface… even in Burnout Paradise. On top of that, the forthcoming Driver: San Francisco will feature the actual, ‘real-life’ depiction of the car, and I’ll bet you a BMW 700 that the performance will be ‘upgraded’ with the power of, say, a V8 engine. Because this is how we like to think the car should’ve been in the first place. How to account for all this popularity? Does the sole responsibility lie with some silly teen comedy about time travel? Me, I like to think that it’s simply directly related to the fact that the DMC-12 is such a glamorous-looking machine, easily one of the best-looking cars of the 1980’s I can immediately think of.

The reason I drive a DMC-12 in High Stakes is because ‘I’ look good in it. It’s been cursed with more or less realistic specs so I had one hell of a time trying to outrun a 1948 Jaguar XK120 and a 1970 Citroën SM (among a bunch of other cool oldies) the other day but it was an unforgettable race and the replay was a joy to watch. The Type 14 Karmann Ghia (a far better-looking car than the contemporary BMW 503 which hardly anyone cares to even remember these days) is also a fixture within my roster because I find it aesthetically pleasing. In fact, every single car in my HS collection has been included on the strength of looks alone. Even the streamlined, V16-equipped 1937 Auto Union Type C has been chosen because of its remarkable appearance (apart from its age and cult status, of course). Its top speed of over 400 km/h (Rosemeyer managed to take it to over 406 km/h on 25 October 1937 on an Autobahn between Frankfurt and Darmstadt, earning the title of the first man to exceed the 400 km/h barrier on an ordinary road; earlier that year the car had allowed him to lap Avus – yes, unthinkable though it may seem, it could actually turn – at an incredible average speed of 276.39 km/h which, I’m told, is a formula record held to this day?) is just a bonus to me, a sympathetic ‘side effect’, if you will. (Truth be told, I only managed to clock 366.8 km/h, testing that beast on a certain Norwegian circuit but I understand that the speed might have been, uhm, ‘electronically limited’ for safety purposes. Or else the car hasn’t been properly maintained since 1937.)

I dunno, maybe you are perfectly happy with something like the Krieger Racing WTR when you do a single player race in Burnout Paradise. Me, I have more fun trying to outsmart the relentless AI in, say, the bulky, slow and awkward but spectacular-looking Hunter Manhattan. Would you say that I’m missing out on something crucial because I’m not playing the game the way it’s seemingly intended to be played? But I’m enjoying myself (and winning top-level races at the same time), how can it be wrong then?

You wrote that extensive MW career walkthrough (http://www.nfscars.net/forum/showthread.php?t=25614) (an admirable feat and an entertaining read in over 5600 words, if my word processor doesn’t lie) only to conclude the following:

What's the best car? For all effects and purposes, the BMW M3 GTR.

Which might’ve been your way of saying:

What's the best car? (…) BMW (…).

(Sorry, couldn’t resist it! :D)

But I can beat the entire game with a starter car equipped with an N2O upgrade and otherwise baby-stock (in fact, I have), thus completely disregarding your vehicle choice suggestions and your apparent conviction that the pursuits are so difficult one is advised to select an appropriately weighty ride and resort to the speedbreaker before every roadblock. Well, I kept smiling during these parts of your overview because I remembered having imposed restrictions on my pursuit tactics in order to increase the challenge to a worthwhile minimum (no N2O, no speedbreaker, no upgrades, no pursuit breakers, no minimap so I couldn’t predict the cops’ positions). In short, the MW, Carbon and especially UC pursuits are nowhere near as scary as those in, say, the original Driver game. And certainly nowhere near so taxing that you’d feel compelled to deprive yourself of the pleasure of driving the car that you reckon might make your exploits look that little bit more, well, glamorous.

Finally, not that I have a thing for convertibles, but we don’t even know if HP’s physics model will take the differences in performance you mentioned into consideration. It’s not like you won’t have a silly boost ‘power-up’ in order to make up for any potential deficiencies after all.

(*) I’m including links to some of what I think are genuinely pretty styling proposals concocted by Frua for BMW. I suggest you help yourself to one of those should the need (ie another ‘Most Beautiful Car’ thread) arise. Given that these are still ‘legit’ Beemers, this will let you save face by staying loyal to your favorite manufacturer and (hopefully) save the rest of us from seeing another picture of that hideous 2002 Turbo on these pages.

The 'Mac is back!

Highly eloquent if a tad long contribution. I agree.

Especially the 'I' look good in it part. NFS can give me the opportunity to either 'show this heavy Turbo brat' in a GT3 RS or 'outgun that RS masochist' in the heavy Turbo S itself, with an open top, watching the other guy (rather, preferably, girl) sweat without air conditioning in Seacrest County, changing those cogs and struggling with the clutch.




I think this game should have a 'Tour' race mode. There, you're assessed on your driving style, every bounce/scrape/dent ****s with your result and penalizes you. That would force a nice, chilled game for a break from those superfast races. You still should get points for 1st place of course.

Zpectre
09-02-2010, 09:29 PM
Mac you've gotta be kidding me with this long post...

I do. Correction: I most certainly f***ing do.

Ask any racer, any real racer, and they will tell you that – although it certainly does matter whether you win by an inch or a mile – the most important thing is to cross the finish line in a red RX-7 with a matching red (or even clashing green) neon flashing underneath.

You know, for a while I was wondering why you would say something as, hmm, naïve as that, and then it hit me: what cars is Zpectre into? Oh yeah, BMW’s. No wonder the very notion of automotive glamor seems so alien to him.

Well, if you do, it's your opinion, but in a pursuit I'll always prefer the car most suited to the job. In "Ronin" the then-current Audi S8 was the vehicle of choice of Robert DeNiro and co. because it was heavy enough to withstand punishment while still being fast. It happened to be a pretty good-looking car but that wasn't taken into consideration when they picked it. :D

My preference for BMW doesn't mean I don't know how to admire proper beauty. ;)

Having recently browsed an old thread wherein users were encouraged to share their perceptions of ‘the most beautiful car’ I was amused to find a few entries of yours on the very first page. What did you feel compelled to post as, one would assume, your most immediate association with automotive beauty? A plain-looking, late 1990’s sedan. With a BMW badge, needless to say. Granted, it was an indisputably elegant model and I’m sure its build quality is impeccable but… I still couldn’t believe that – out of thousands of visually attractive machines – you went with this. Of course, it got even better when you posted a hapless 2002 Turbo (!) running out of ‘presentable’ BMW offerings perhaps. Really, as subjective as this can get, I would’ve understood and forgiven you for something as infinitely more palatable as an early 1970’s 2800CS, a 2000CS with its unmistakable front end… hell, even a 3200 – although, of all the Gordon Keeble rehashes Giugiaro did, that one was probably the least interesting and the least charming. But the 2002 Turbo?! You might’ve as well posted a bloody NSU 1200 (which is similar, after all)! Or gone the whole hog and proposed the ‘clown shoe’ which, I’m guessing, was BMW’s way of finding out just how many people would be tasteless enough to accept the brand’s aesthetic transition from merely ordinary to downright atrocious.

There are people who find beauty in the ordinary things of life. :D Not necessarily my case, though. I stand by my opinion that the E39 is one of the most beautiful sedans ever made, even if its design doesn't have any revolutionary features.

And the 2002 could be considered "cute" instead of "beautiful". By the time I posted that the thread had already turned into a "post-your-favourite-car" thread so I just set out to post some BMWs afte F.R. made his contribution. I'll admit that at the time I wasn't very familiarised with the older BMW coupés like the New Class, for which I kindly ask you to forgive me, since my automotive knowledge dwindles the further we go back in time.

I dunno, maybe you are perfectly happy with something like the Krieger Racing WTR when you do a single player race in Burnout Paradise. Me, I have more fun trying to outsmart the relentless AI in, say, the bulky, slow and awkward but spectacular-looking Hunter Manhattan. Would you say that I’m missing out on something crucial because I’m not playing the game the way it’s seemingly intended to be played? But I’m enjoying myself (and winning top-level races at the same time), how can it be wrong then?

I haven't unlocked the WTR yet, but I know I wouldn't choose it all that often. The Rossolini Tempesta GT is more like what you'd see me driving in Paradise City. ;) I don't like TOO fast cars, with the natural exception of the Veyron.

You wrote that extensive MW career walkthrough (an admirable feat and an entertaining read in over 5600 words, if my word processor doesn’t lie) only to conclude the following:

But it's not my fault they made the M3 GTR that good! :D

Actually, with all Junkman parts, the Carrera GT is the best all around car, but it's unfair to compare it to the M3 GTR then, because it's not a level playing field.

But I can beat the entire game with a starter car equipped with an N2O upgrade and otherwise baby-stock (in fact, I have), thus completely disregarding your vehicle choice suggestions and your apparent conviction that the pursuits are so difficult one is advised to select an appropriately weighty ride and resort to the speedbreaker before every roadblock. Well, I kept smiling during these parts of your overview because I remembered having imposed restrictions on my pursuit tactics in order to increase the challenge to a worthwhile minimum (no N2O, no speedbreaker, no upgrades, no pursuit breakers, no minimap so I couldn’t predict the cops’ positions). In short, the MW, Carbon and especially UC pursuits are nowhere near as scary as those in, say, the original Driver game. And certainly nowhere near so taxing that you’d feel compelled to deprive yourself of the pleasure of driving the car that you reckon might make your exploits look that little bit more, well, glamorous.

My guide is only meant to make things easier, taking into consideration the way the game is meant to be played, but usually you can beat most games without doing all the things you're supposed to. Perhaps I don't have a particularly inventive mind to deviate from the path the developers intended the gamers to take and I fully acknowledge I'm at fault for this. Maybe it's my OCD, too. :P

Did you have problems with the last tollbooth challenges? I'm curious to hear. :) I remember in NFSUnlimited one guy tried to beat the game with the Camaro and he found those to be particularly difficult without an upgraded car.

(*) I’m including links to some of what I think are genuinely pretty styling proposals concocted by Frua for BMW.

Yes, those are truly random. Oh well, I guess I'll just wait for the official list by EA. And Mac indeed did his usual elaborated long post. Z, the E39 is the best-looking sedan ever. Thing is, I have no problem with the cabrios or the other limited edition variations, but I'd prefer them to be unlockables and be applied as packages instead of being fillers. Why not have the Diablo and its cabrio version or the SV and the VT as unlockables instead of Balboni's Gallardo and the Superleggera filling actual car slots when they could easily be unlockables?! Also the lack of sedans (just the Quattroporte), classics, concepts - and obviously car brands like TVR, Wiesmann or Morgan. EA also needs to spend more cash on car licenses.

Quattroporte and Panamera are the only sedans here. And undoubtedly they will both be cop-only.

However, everything you listed may still be hoped for in DLCs.

EA chose its studios wisely lately. Slightly Mad and Criterion are both solid, British teams who know their trade (simulation and arcade games) very well.

Think of the numerous DLCs Burnout Paradise got, being ruled by Criterion.

We also need 'obscure' (for someone with little interest in cars) concepts (to take place of the Scighera in NFS3, for example). Fisker Karma maybe, or Renault's mid-engine concept and Peugeot's SL-competitor thingy (both in roadster and coupé :P) - those will never make it to the road, maybe they should let us drive them in-game?


The Porsches make a great, strong list indeed.

I think the best picks of yours are:

BMW M1 Homage and Lamborghini Miura Concept, Zenvo ST1, 907 RC (vs Panamera vs Rapide vs RS7 vs Estoque vs CL65 vs 612) and the Birdcage.

I'd add the new Peugeot concepts as a competition to the non-existent normal SL's (where's the goddamn SL63 and SL65, let alone SL500 and 600, and 350, show me MOAR).

About the game itself, the new gameplays look very disappointing. Worse than Undercover collision system (MW-style untouchable opponents) and NFS:NITRO-style drifting are on the cards.

So in the game, when you scroll through your available vehicles, a sultry female voice describes each model in purring tones reminiscent of those M&S food adverts ("This isn't just an engine, it's a Porsche Boxster Spyder engine with 3436cc direct fuel injection and 320bhp…").

More cars are officially confirmed Corvettes, and more Lamborghinis including the murcielago lp 640. BTW the Reventon is also now available to the racers, the Z06 and ZR1 will be for both the cops and racers while the Grand Sport/GS is in convertable form and only for the racers.

I realize that the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione and Mustang GT500 are Special Edition exclusive cars. But does anyone know if they will/would eventually be available down the road to those who end up buying the regular edition of the game? Or if you don't get the S.E., does that mean you'll never get to drive these cars, ever?

Criterion stated they will put only the latest and hottest cars on HP2K10, so don't expect those ones.

Dang, I want mah R34 on HP2K10. That RB26 sound is just unique.

Stupid to include a Charger racer version. It's a cop car. Why aren't Quattroporte and Panamera available as racers? huh?

Why isn't Cayenne driveable?

But it would all be alright if the Charger was cop-only.

Wow. That totally changed my mind.

Alright, I meant the atmosphere. The thing is, treating Quattroporte and Panamera as police cruisers (which they're most certainly not) and a Charger as a versatile vehicle superior to both (more applications)?

It's just not fair. Charger is a badass car, perfect for a cop and maybe racer, if you're racing other US V8s. But no inclusion of hot Euro 4doors as racers is hardly a good thing.

BTW - cop liveries differ. I like that so much. Panamera has a bit of a Euro thing going on, eh?

There could be other 4-doors on racers hands such as the Audi B7 RS4 saloon which weighs around 1650 kg, the Aston Martin Rapide, Lamborghini Estoque, Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG and BMW E39/E60 M5.

To be honest, the heavy weight of the Quattroporte and Panamera make them excellent cop cars.

You can pretty much say that Lancer and Impreza are there only so you have something to chase with Charger and you can turn this triangle around all you want, as all of these cars are in real life used both by police and racers. Absence of any other 4door cars is unfortunate, but we can be happy that we got anything at all.

Quattroporte wasn't so far confirmed as police only, but this is not Test Drive, so you don't need this car to look cool while driving it around, but to stop suspect with something that can as well (under ideal circumstances) transport him to the jail.

It's also apparent that Highway Patrol prefer european cars (Panamera, GranTurismo, XKR...) so Chevy based "europol" livery was just cherry on the cake.

Seconded for both arguments. But availability as racers would be nice. Benefits for negotiating LONG distances in short spaces of time should be biased towards heavier cars somehow - to illustrate more a more comfortable ride in this Burnout perception, there should be lesser speed penalties for hitting walls in those big GTs.



Yeah, noticed that too.

And all Euro GTs have a Euro thing going on too? GranTurismo, DBS and XKR all have a white-blue thing.

The Crown Vic looks so cheap in comparison to other SCPD cars. But good to have it there.

About Cop Coupe/Racer Cabrio thing... on Reventon and Veyron that's all well IMO, but the DBS is out of line. We should have both DBSs. Reventon and Veyron I agree with, because Veyron is actually stronger in convertible and is 'cooler'. Same for Reventón. The cop is the badass here.

The SLR and DBS should be available as racers. Since a ****ING charger is! So should be Viper SRT10 not ACR and Z06.

But Veyron and Reventón, I'm fine with only Roadsters available.

Personally, It seems ****ed up that each car has its police counterpart. They should've limited them to a handful of "elite cop cars".

Also the idea of racing with just roadster versions in some cars is ridiculous. It's an optional choice - some like to drive with their wind blowing their hair and some on badass coupes.

In HS only a few cars were available as cops in each class and people were fine with that, since those cars were good, except for the M5 which was slowest in its class.

Cops should have only a few cars available to them, since IRL not many cars can be converted for cop duty. But Criterion, much like Black Box before them, think they know better.

Oh, and what is actually bad about putting in a LOT of cop cars?

There's only one super-cop per race, you know. And it creates this amazing society of Seacrest's finest. They're amazing.

Dude, a Porsche Cayman or Audi TT are not exotic. They're just European sports cars of the small roadster/coupé class. Jaguar XKR is not exotic. I seen it many times.

In TNFS, they gave us RX-7, Supra and NSX. This shows they were worth putting next to the likes of 911 Carrera and Testarossa (albeit in a different class). In this one, I'm glad to get all the muscles and Japanese sports cars. They're a different way of being fast to a Mustang or a Cayman.

I doubt licenses will retain exclusivity. The more companies utilize them, the more money the marques who distribute them get - simple as that. Ferrari will unlock its exclusive status soon enough, they need to squeeze more cash after all.
