Mother of God, this has to be the fastest shutdown ever, made in only 0:54 in the recent Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, hopefully someone can match this time or even make it better.
I'm at a minute an the top of the day is 21 seconds
I know I sound dumb but can anyone tell me how I activate the boost, or the spikes? It should be arrow up but nothing happens if I push it. I only had the chance to play 5 min max. before I had to go to work, so I couldn't figure it out by myself. Thanks for the help
I didn't download the Ps3 version yet, so all I can tell you is the 360 version. If you have PC, you're on your own. Your boost meter has to charge up. It's the light blue gauge. Hit "A" and you'll get a boost. When you hit the D-pad for spikes or road block, it takes time for them to set it up. You wanna hit it before shortcuts come up or they will bypass it. Hope that helped... I love this f*ckin game! This so far is one of the most entertaining racing games i've played in years. I have grown tired of track racing(laps) and ultra realistic games. I miss when games used to be about fun!
Have a bubble for the help, I'll try it out later :)
Auto-drifting. *Vomits* Every stinkin' new racer these days...
it's based on luck! I've always tried the spike trip and normally get 200hit, though once I got a 500hit which means instant shut down just like this guy does. It's all based on luck. so if you are second or 3rd in your friendlist, don't worry about trying to beat n01 scorer because it's based on luck.
Yeh that one was pretty lucky, my best is 1:14 something, but i had to really work for that time :P
what is happenig on N4G? every crappy Youtube video aproved... :facepalm:
my fastest time is a 1:05 and it´s not totally based on luck... but luck sometimes plays a role (like in almost every videogame) 54 seconds....DAMN!!! to get under 1 minute is almost impossible for me congrats dude! *applause*
...for this on PS3 and can't say I could see myself buying the full game. I would rather play a new version of Burnout.
Another example of production value being more important than gameplay. Once you get over all the flashing lights and 'splosions the game is pretty shallow. Anywho back to wipeout where you actually have to turn corners greater than 15 degrees, and you know, race.
Or, you know, people will play this game because it's FUN. You should try it sometime instead of bashing a game that isn't even out yet.
That road goes both ways, if I can't criticize the demo and the 1000 of videos and articles that detail every gameplay element, why can you do the opposite?
how is this game fun? like soundslike said the corners are a joke, and to me it was pretty boring, the cars response was very very veeeery slow and clunky, and he can give his opinion, I mean, that's what a demo is for right? to see if you like it or not, if you are into that kind of thing go ahead an enjoy it.
@ soundslike - The way you worded it makes it sound like it's ALL flash and no substance. Could you elaborate on the part of your last sentence of your original comment when you said "and you know, race"? How is it not racing? I can see what you mean if you're talking about playing as the cops. @zireno - Playing from the cops perspective by taking down the racers is a nice change of pace from other racers. You're right, it's his opinion and he's entitled to it, I just wanted him to expand on his original comment.
Taking turns has no skill involved you can basically just slide into walls 1000 times and still get right back into things. Boost is practically non-stop...which takes away the "boost" feeling from it. The devs obviously think we are 10 year olds who can't walk and chew bubblegum at the same time because even when turning it feels like I am still on the same never ending straightaway to make sure that I don't have any issues trying to use my powerups that are on short cooldowns. It feels like a deathmatch but only with OP killstreak rewards. @Redempteur This title is based around "combat racing" wipeout is a combat racer with actual racing mechanics underneath that don't treat you like a child.
Need For Speed Hot Pursuit is an arcade racer. It's not trying to be a sim racer in any way. Yes, it's not the most arcadey racer ever, but it has some realism in it.
you're actually comparing WIPEOUT and need for speed ? WOAH .. these games are so différent i wonder what went trough your head to make the connexion..

my first try on demo is 2:11 and I thought that was good
This demo got me addicted to this game. This is a day one purchase for me. A lot of fun for a demo.
yeh it doesn't seem that quick a time if i'm honest, i mean i got 1 min 15 on my first try at this game, so i don't think 54 seconds is that good.
But judging by the times, I need to play the race again... O_O
So close...I have a time of around 58 seconds I think.
Must remember to not race against this dude. :p
HAHAHAHA YES!!!! i achieved a 53,86 so...i´m actually faster than this guy :D WUHU!!! AWESOME!!!
