That was my whole point. X-Play most likely got that completely wrong, and it's actually a bit laughable that they did so. At what point in NFS history did racers ever use spikes? And why would racers all of a sudden be able to call in helicopters to drop spikes, when the police could very well call in their own chopper as well? It makes no sense. And in the tiny bit of footage that we saw from the trailer, the helicopter that came down attempted very clearly to force the racers off the road, which it did to one of them, and the only car that hit the spikes was a racer.
X-Play was wrong, and they apparently had no clue what they were doing.
You mean the new HP? Of course it shows promise, so long as you really don't pay any attention to that bogus preview from X-Play...lol. I wrote my latest blog and called them out on the mistakes.
Anyway, I pre-ordered the new HP. I have a few Gamestop gift cards laying around and decided what the heck, I'll just do it now. I'm 99% sure that I'll buy it when released anyway, and this way I can be positive that I get my hands on one of the limited edition copies.
The new HP was only made because Criterion slapped EA awake. Had they not done that, EA would make another game that only sells for 2 months and then dies. --- Alt: _afro_ninja714_ Official creator of the Roflcopter. "When it comes to racing games, you are the man." -Munky321
Probably. That's why I give the majority of the credit here to Criterion, because they're the ones who went to EA and said that they wanted to take NFS back to its roots. EA finally did something smart and agreed, so it's happening in November. If I see any EA employees out there racing, I'm taking them down...
I forget... did the petition ever get mailed? Because if not, the making of this game would be somewhat comically ironic. --- M.o.F.a.T. Inc. And remember, some people are alive only because it's illegal to shoot them.
