I guess they did put up patch notes and nobody actually noticed.

Patch notes - PC Patch 1 (Nov 5th 2012):

  • Microsoft XBOX 360 and Logitech RumblePad2 controller no longer start vibrating after finishing a Speedlist, even when having the vibration mode off
  • Certain button bindings are no longer being forgotten after restarting the game
  • The game is now syncing properly again after Origin was switched between Online and Offline mode a few times
  • The HUD no longer disappears when editing license plates under some circumstances
  • Everyone who pre-ordered Need for Speed Most Wanted should now have access to the bonus content in-game
  • The game no longer hangs on the loading screen whilst accepting an invite under some circumstances
  • The game should now uninstall properly without leaving certain .dll files behind

just for the hell of it here's the link

Ha ha, you don't control that car, I just pointed and hoped it wouldn't get airborne. I kept asking myself if they forgot to put brakes and gravity on that car, the only tip I can give is not to run wide open and if there is a hill let off the gas as you reach the top.

The only vehicle I haven't finished all the races for is the Ford truck (SVT?), but I'm only at the Boss Mustang (going in alphabetical order) still plenty of cars left. I took down the "most wanted" with the 'Vette pretty easily, the only problem was with the #1 driver got away due to an SUV taking me out right after the "take down" part started. I had to keep chasing him and he'd just disappear off the radar, so I'd drive around and he would show up every so often fly by and I'd keep chasing, after about 20 minutes he flew by and totaled himself and as I was closing full speed he was transported behind me and he drove off. I was not happy, since I totaled myself hitting the wall he hit, but somehow I got him and finished the "list".

All in all this game has some very crappy parts and some even crappier parts, why can't I set the damn thing to skip all the race intros automatically? How does an SUV only hit me hard enough to scratch the paint but still total me? Still, I push on, I have no money to buy another game, so eventually I pick it up and keep going on my way to 100%!

so they copied some code from burnout for this one cause while scouting race routes i would often get wrecked by the lightest taps also i think ill pick this one up when it becomes cheaper.

I believe it's just upgraded cars for multiplayer (without having to put the time in to upgrade them.)

Just to add to this weird spotting, it wasn't just you or me that thought it looked too similar to City Hall: http://www.thestar.c...-for-speed-game http://www.reddit.co...ed_most_wanted/

Pretty neat. :)

Fantastic! I am surprised that The Star would have such an article! Still very nice, and its probably the first time Toronto is featured in a game.

Also they gave us no credits for spotting that! :(

My longest police chase so far has been 49 minutes with a Nissan GT-R Egoist. Boy, was that fun with the Level 6 SWAT trucks! :ninja::p

I'm having trouble playing the game for more than 30 mins without getting bored and that's without the stupid chases!

Bought it, hated it, going to trade it in, thought Hot Pursuit was better. (Partly as I could never stay online for more than 5 or 10 minutes at a time, something that still doesn't happen in HP)

On a positive note tho, Loved the Marussia B2, played almost the whole game that allowed that car IN that car :)

(I don't know about anyone else as I can only speak for myself, but it felt a little too Burnout with licensed cars for me, more so that Hot Pursuit did)

Impressive! I almost got caught at least 5 times, blocked police or traffic or walls. That would have been annoying. Still running from cops is more fun than racing.

marussia is nice. I prefer either audi r8 / lamborghini aventador/gallardo or koenigsegg most :)

And yes it does feel a lot like burnout.

Can't remember how many times I nearly got caught, it was a nice adrenaline rush to get my wanted level down by hiding in various places before being spotted again. My favourite seems to be slamming the police into walls if I get pinned down and then J-turning out of there :laugh:

I admit to being confused as to the multiplayer.

After a while it fails to give you a new objective or return to freeburning and I don't get what's supposed to be happening there.

I assume it's a bug, but wha...

You're not the only one, the multiplayer needs some bugs ironed out. Also a bit silly that you can't just have a plain ole' race with someone, like Hot Pursuit allowed but instead you have to race to a location to start and then it turns out that your car is facing in the wrong direction because the other player got there before you.

Guess Will have to wait til I upgrade Ram on this PC to 16gb, then get a Video card I can cross fire with this APU, and Possibly upgrade Power supply at same time, Unless I can find a second video card that will crossfire with this APU A6-3620 Radeon 6530D chip without changing Power supply...guess will research that in the coming months

I'm confused, there is NO way you need to hold off until you had 16GB of RAM and 2x GFX cards to run this...

What? :s

You can't CrossFireX an APU (as far as I'm aware) as it's basically an integrated GPU. Also, 4 GB will be fine, 8 GB will be excellent. 16 GB is totally overkill.

Has supposedly Hybrid Crossfire, which will allow Discrete Card and APu to work together from what I understand, and highest can go with this chip would be HD6570 to work with that, Game said it needs 1024mb of video ram to work, is reason why I was gonna wait on getting it. But maybe I read it wrong and don't have to, or goto thru the trouble of setting up for Hybrid CrossFire or Also known as AMD Dual Graphics

CPU info here, and shows which cards can Crossfire with on this page

I guess I may buy the Game anyways at Christmas and if I need to get a Discrete card to go with my APU after that, then I guess I will at that time. Only had this APU based system since June so still learning what can be done with it, and all that. First Ever Quad Core PC, with Radeon Graphics

I wasn't going to get this game after reading so many bad reviews on here, but a demo for Xbox came out lately so I gave it a try.

I found the graphics to be absolutely phenomenal, and definitely no frame rate problems on an Xbox.

I'm definitely buying it now!!

yeah my bro has a laptop with dual graphics :)

All games will run fine with 8GB btw. Even my 6 is overkill 99% of the time...with the pagefile off the only time I had problems was when I was saving one game while opening another, oops. I turned it back on just in case that happens again.

I know I'm a bit late to the party, but is anyone else disappointed with the complete lack of storyline in this edition of Most Wanted? I thought the story in the original version of Most Wanted was brilliant, but this version has nothing. It seems that all you do is aimlessly drive around a repetitve city racing in the same repetitive races with terrible handling and AI that is 100s of times better than you. Just feels like the "Most Wanted" list was added in as an after thought. They might as well have just called it a leaderboard! The NFS series has been rather disappointing since the orginial Most Wanted, albeit the new Hot Pursuit was fun, but this one just doesn't do it for me. Just my

As much as trailers told us before, that's their new best idea of in-game freedom :D

Though I'm kind of ok with that this time. Note that I'm usually not ok even with slightest cuts. However, old Most Wanted was the first and the last one being ok, with Sergeant Cross keying the car and all, everything after that story-wise was a let down, Undercover being total shyte and The Run having a great potential that was wasted. So, if they suck at it, why not just concentrate on the driving? :D
