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 £0.02p (or $0.02c) :p

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

That's the trouble, the game feels like a rebadged Burnout, but without the Burnout fun. Even the take downs aren't as fun as they are in Burnout Paradise, which I thought was one of Criterion's best games.

Agreed. But is it actually better if story is there, only as an excuse to do something? And I say this as a question I'm truly not sure about, not as a statement.

Me, I am a kind of a completionist. I do not go for all achievements usually, but win all the races, get all the cars, stuff like that - I'd do that anyway. A couple of AAA shooter campaigns now want to tell a story and are reasonably successful with it, but for many it's mostly an excuse (a bad excuse at times) to shoot all the people and blow all the stuff up. In multiplayer nobody ever needs an excuse. If Codemasters invented some sort of story in their next Dirt, how much better it would be? Or I guess it depends on the story...

I still think the game was great, but the multiplayer is terrible for people who just want to race. I still play The Run multi with my brother even though we both have MW.

So no one has posted in this thread for quite some time, but I basically got addicted to playing this game over the holiday.
Think I am around 65% done with the SP, have just one most wanted race left.
So I am currently doing the cars I have not done the events for left, and after that, what else needs to be done to complete SP? Billboards and all of that? Is there an easy way in game to know which ones you have not yet done?

Also, has anyone purchased the DLC pack? The Ultimate Speed Pack? I am strongly considering it is I like the game so much, but unless I am mistaken, I have already pretty much gotten those cars through the Most Wanted Events, so are the new events the DLC offer good enough to warrant a purchase?

This was definitely one of my favorite games for the holiday season. Truly enjoyed the hell out of it, the driving in it was perfect for my tastes, I prefer a more arcadey racer myself, and there was enough variation in the handling and feel of the different types of cars.

I did end up getting this game for Xbox 360. Haven't done too many races yet, been driving around the vast environment.
The game is absolutely incredible. Graphics are phenomenal. There's just so much to it, Just wow. Love it!!
I haven't played online though, never actually do, don't know why I pay for Live subscriptions, lol.

The cars in the DLC are new. I'm picking it up soon, I've been ignoring DLC while I catch up on other games.

I think you only need to find all the jackspots and do all the races for the SP meter, but I couldn't tell you for ure.

I didn't like this game at all. I thought it would be fun from watching videos on the internet, but this game controls horribly. The controls are sluggish so when I hit left or right it takes a while before the car will turn. The lack of storyline didn't really give me any motivation to keep playing it. Plus this game kills the crap out of vibration on your controller. It just doesnt stop at times. I'll just pass on this game, I don't normally play need for speed anyways, but I thought about trying this one since it was Criterion. As usual though, this series is stale and poor on quality.

I really want to make a 286 joke but I have more class than that.

I think.

Anyway, I got the DLC, maxed out the Pagani Zonda R and took down the Hennessey =) Was it worth $10? I dunno. But it was worth getting.

So it is all new events right? And is it 25 new events? Or 5 new events, repeated over and over for each car?

I only did one cars so far, but it only had one race I'd already been through. EA claims 25 new events (races and speed runs.)

Really been pretty occupied with Far Cry 3 lately, although obviously I do play other stuff.
