NO Manual Transmission - IS THIS REAL?

#1Muttley01Posted 11/11/2010 1:32:10 AM
There is one fact and one rumour.

Fact:
There will be no split-screen offline co-op mode. Sad, but true.

Rumour:
There will be NO MANUAL TRANSMISSION in this game. - IS THIS REAL?

Let me add silently:
Both of them above did exist in the "prehistoric fossil" 2002 NFS: HP.
Now what?

There isn't a shift option on the controls menu, so I think you're right.

^You couldn't play splitscreen in Burnout Paradise, either. So, Hot Pursuit not having splitscreen was kind of expected, but it still sucks for those who wanted it. : (

Thing is Hot Pursuit has guided races (you can't leave the race course once an event has started).

So why deny two players that option? If you're just going to race, the game only has to load that course into memory.

Umm... I'm not sure if you mean in real life, in video games, or both, but the answer is the same - anyone who likes real racing and knows how to properly operate a car.

The fact that Hot Pursuit 2 had Manual Transmission is irrelevant, Hot Pursuit 2 was made by Black Box, this is made by Criterion.

Real drivers... thats who, the problem with america is that an ape can pass a drivers test, since there is no need to learn manual. If everyone was made to learn to drive stick, people would be better drivers, rather then mindless, cellphone texting zombies...
