The demo looked like crap. Burnout paradise looks better IMHO. Oh and when it comes to multiplat racers, Midnight club has that on lock. Doesn't come close to games like Motorstorm or Forza, but open world racing belongs to Rockstar, Criterion were on the right track, but the last NFS was underwhelming. Especially considering how good Burnout was.

The demo not only looked like ass but played like ass as well. A ton of screen tearing and uneven frame rate. This isn't even a rental for me and racing is my favorite genre.

it looks shitty on consoles. Gotta see it on pc

This is a shitty use of Frostbite 2.0.
The game looks worse than NFS: Hot Purusit.
How is that possible???

Is it me or does the frostbite engine make everything shiny in this game look glary and muddy. I saw little to no reflections on the cars, and ones that are there are only noticeable up close at an angle, there's also this weird white glow around them which makes it look blurry.

I don't know what it is, but i notice it in battlefield as well.

Agreed. The demo looks waaaaay worse than hot pursuit did. Not sure what's going on over there at EA.
