Unfortunately, you are right.And as far as I'm concerned, if Criterion doesn't want to put thetime into a making a real NFS game, then they need to lose the keys to the franchise, and have them given to somebody who will do it right.
If this doesn't "Burnout" alot of people, I will be suprised. This same old stuff is old and is a rather pathetic excuse for Criterion.
I'm curious, but is split screen really that important to a lot of people on here?
You do realize that in order to do split screen, they have to take away from other areas of the game in order to keep the performance consistent. This could mean graphics look worse, frame rate drops in active moments, and so on.
Would you want to take the performance hit in order to have split screen?
Do you know what nemesis means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent. Personified in this case by an 'orrible ****... me.
I guess the only reason I'm irritated is because this Need for Speed doesn't seem to offer a whole lot, and if they were truly taking it back to its roots, split screen would have been added. Not to mention how much more fun it is to play against people around you than it is to play when there's nobody there. Online play, IMO, takes the fun out of the game.
