Very cool, added features! Nice to see another yet another company putting the gamepad to use in a great way.

Really interesting features. Co-driver looks like a innovative idea, IMO. And those cars are a great plus.

Even though EA have been a bit ignorant regarding the content on certain wiiu games , Mass effect 3 runs the same as it does on 360 at least with some nice features and Fifa runs the same as it does on 360 with some obvious graphical improvements , albeit with a few features missing in Fifa and some not as good ones added in.

I trust EA will do a good enough job porting NFSMW over and i will be buying. The reason I didn't buy it was because I was saving for my wiiu and i was slightly pissed that EA weren't putting NFS on wiiu, but they changed that.

It should of been a launch title.

Congrats EA... this will be the first of a few games they release for the WiiU that makes sense to purchase. The other (Madden for example) clearly were water down versions of what were also release on Xbox360/PS3. The added features and exclusive content makes this a must buy and the best version to get.

That's a fantastic way to utilise the gamepad, I hope this is the beginning of devs really starting to use their imaginations where it's concerned. No one can say the Wii U version isn't worth buying over the other versions.

Idk about using the gamepad to switch mods. If I want to change tires in the middle of the race i would have to look down on the gamepad. I would probably end up crashing.

When Online the gamepad will rule,and going off that screenshot the back drops look much more detailed than 360/ps3 versions as well as dlc included and all the amazing features day 1.

They really need to add the option to customize the controls. I hate how Criterion games locks you down to one way to play.

cool! the co-driver mode would act'ly work for a WRC game... two racers would also be a good competitive mode if there is that feature...
