No manual transmission???

#1revolixPosted 11/20/2013 4:11:16 PM
I was actually excited for this game, I haven't enjoyed a need for speed game since underground 1 and 2 an this reminded me of forza horizon a bit, I liked hot pursuit and I was excited for cop chases. And the open world but i always use manual transmission. And I'm about to play and its not an option. I'm bummed but ill get used to it I guess

I don't think they've had manual transmission since Shift 2. This is an arcade racer, not simulation.

Too bad...

@ patcooper114 , I confirm you are the only one to laugh.

Manual gears means much better control of your car. It's much more interesting in a game AND with a real car. 2 pedal cars are meant for elderly and drivers in training.

This is one of the two real issues with this game , no manual gears and only two points of views.

ummm.... this is an arcade racer. im all for manual on my gran turismos and forzas but in a game where you have enough to worry about like cops, traffic, weapons, roadblocks and turns at 100+ mph... i don't think shifting gears would be a good idea. just silly to even being upset about it imo.

Well , to me it's an issue , even with having to pay attention to traffic , weapons and cops/racers I still manage to watch a movie on my laptop. Having a racer game with automatic gears shift is like playing on beginner mode. It should at least be an option ,so that players who want to play an easy mode can.

Look at my signature , it's been the same for years.

I really don't care, this isn't Forza. Only time when I miss manual transmission is when you have to get going from a standstill, most cars are kinda hitchy at that point. For the rest this game is too arcade for manual transmission to really matter.
