EA has admitted that the decline in both sales and quality of the Need for Speed franchise was its own fault - for overworking one of its studios.
I was never a fan of need for speed until there underground serious came out IT WAS THE SHIT!!! now its dead and im not a need for speed fan nomore BRING BACK UNDERGROUND!!!!!!!!
we need a new games from underground which is built right a lot of cars,unlimited custmization/big city without and wanna be story. it would be nice if they could do that on a new enginewith smart AI and much improved graphics
I must agree. I did enjoy the Underground games quite a bit. Although Most Wanted was pretty awesome too. A mix between the two would be great. My only problems with the games is that it was always either eternal night or sunset. Lol
I liked Most Wanted Better. BUt Underground was very good as well.
YUP! Bring Back NEED FOR SPEED UNDERGROUND that was fun
undergound was cool , but that was the beggining of the end .. nfs was okay nfs2 was good NFS 3 was awesome NFS4 was okay NFS porche was an okay game but not a good need for speed undergournd was good , most wanted was very good hot pursuit 2 was very good .. All the rest is shit
first you guys complain and complain that you wanted hot pursuit back. and now you got hot pursuit back, you want underground back? geez..
Hot Pursuit (Need for Speed 3, High Stakes, and Hot Pursuit 2) series was.
The original Hot Pursuit on the PS1 was my favorite! :)
The last best NFS was Most Wanted. We got Black Edition too so it was awesomer =)
I loved the hot pursuit on PS2, this other one I cant remember and underground on PS2. All the others where ok or bad.
I think Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2 is going to somewhat redeem EA of all the criticism they've been getting with their previous NFS games.. I just know it, It's going to sell really well.. And people are going to have a blast on it! You can quote me on that too.. That's how confident I am about it. :P
Wow now they're admitting? Not late at all eh, EA?
Criterion won't make anyone disappointed.
I stop playing arcadey games ever since this gen started. I'm all about realism and story now.
Nice to see some accountability.
EA, how about you do MADDEN every two years also, just like NFS now. I hope the decline in sales this year makes them think about it. Every year they only add a couple of things that no one cares about. Fix the lag in game and patch it properly. Thanks.
And it will be redeemed.
shit article....Most wanted and carbon were the best >.<
Need for Speed Shift was the best
Oh well, at the very least EA admitted part of what made them 'evil', so to speak.
Annual iterations of the same game, hastily put together? Doesn't this describe most of EAs games?
-The Need for Speed: a classic (p2p tracks, highways,desert tracks etc.) i still like it -Need for Speed 2: i never played it...so i have nothing to say about it -Need for Speed 3/Hot Pursiut: one of my favourite NFS and racing games EVER (best tracks so far, awesome music, good choice of cars) -Need for Speed 4/High Stakes: almost as good as NFS3 (really motivating career mode,good tracks) -Need for Speed Porsche: never played that either (though i only hear positive things about it and i like porsche) maybe i should give it finally a try ;) -Need for Speed/Hot Pursiut 2: it was okay.. but i didn´t liked it as much as Hot Pursiut 1 and High Stakes back in the days. -Need for Speed/Underground: at first i thought "oh no..fast and the furious rip off" and in some ways they were maybe inspired by it and used the hype at that time BUT i really had fun with it. -Need for Speed/Underground 2: this is my second favourite NFS title after HP1 and HS cause they improved almost everything from U1 (i don´t know..i´m somehow into that night racing thing) deep in my heart i´m hoping for a Underground 3 since then the series REALLY went downhill Most Wanted was decent at best Carbon was WAY too short and Pro Street was a joke and failed totally as a "NFS" game (maybe if they had given it another name i wouldn´t be so pissed) so...after all those mediocre games i almost lost hope and trust in the NFS series and than came Undercover :( 15 minutes after i played it i had to shut it off... this was the most shocking NFS experience i ever had and i really thought "ok...thats it...they killed it.. finally" and as we all know they announced SHIFT i really don´t know how they do it but they always get my attention again when they release a new NFS (maybe it´s the little boy in me that played the old NFS games and hopes that they will finally get back on track and make good games again) ok..so back to what i was going to say -NFS/Shift: yes...they finally had a good NFS game in the catalouge...nothing mindblowing..but i really liked the "sim´ísh" aspects of it. and now they´re releasing Hot Pursiut 3 in some weeks and i must say, though i was SO disappointed with the previous games i really have a feeling that this one will be the NFS game we were all waiting for (and YES i know, that´s what they want to believe us) right now i´m playing NFS World sometimes... and i must say it´s somehow fun... even more if you take into account that it´s free. i really hope that the NFS series is here to stay for another 10 years or so and that they can keep to produce GOOD games we´ll all enjoy. so...that was my NFS history ;) HAPPY GAMING EVERYONE
ALL EA need to do is go back to ps 1 NFS and re-do all of them with HD graphic's bam!! we'll have 7 new NFS games dont change a thing. I personally hated mostwanted,carbon,prostreets, undercover,shift,underground 2..... best NFS for me was the need for speed,nfs hotpursuit 1&2 ..highstakes,porsche unleashed,nfs 2, underground,
only thing underground needed was cops and instant reply
