The demo on show is the same one we saw at E3, you begin with a little free roam then go back to base to customise your car. Al this is done on rails as the mods are chosen you, So my Porsche was given chunky tyres and a heavier chassis making a pig of car to handle. This was a great touch as those change should make the handling of the car worse and so I was pleasantly surprised it felt so realistic.
Need for Speed Rivals
A new studio has joined the Need for Speed world and with a little help from the masters at Criterion (view of Paul) they seem to have caught lightning in a bottle.
The eight player challenge I played was one of the best racing experiences I have had. In a huge and extremely detailed world it was four on four as the cops tried to take down the crooks in a classic bash and crash world.
The graphics were smooth with no pop in and amazing crash visuals.
Obviously we will have to wait and see on that front but for now I'm a Rivals fan.
