In the end, EA really needs to take a year off and build a better racing game. This port of Most Wanted that was a port of Carbon, which in itself wasn't good in the first place, is unforgivable from a team as financially stable as EA. Heck, Burnout Paradise, while not a great "Burnout-style" game, was a fantastic racing game, so how about counting your losses and just releasing one racing title and put all your money and focus on it. You will make yourself, your fans, and many gamers very happy. As for this incarnation of Need for Speed, you can just blame it on engine failure.
