Default my GOD how annoying is this game?!?!

it's the most infuriating racing game i have played since rage racer, maybe even more so. how could they screw it up so bad? it should be fun, like burnout with cops but no its pain and suffering incarnate.

I really liked this game, care to expand on why you don't like it?

No, it's awesome. It's the first racing game I've been able to get into in years.

i think on reflection, my problem is the handling of the cars. they need constant readjustment when driving in a straight line, like a simulator, and you get harshly punished in speed terms for scraping the walls and hitting dirt, like a simulator. but you drift like an arcade game. the game encourages you to play it like an arcade racer then punishes you for it. it's weird, you know, you play gran turismo and you drive carefully and realistically, you play burnout and you drive reckless and carefree and this game is in the middle.

i'm gonna give it one more chance tonight, perhaps comparing it to the pad smashing wife beating rage racer was harsh.

You just bought the game kinda late so your getting use to it the first time.
This game really is the best NFS game in a long time.
The Handling of the cars is easy. You probably just dont know how to work them yet.
Im guessing you probably use L2 to slow down. Use the handbreak () for all turns.
As for the scraping walls, sound just like bad driving/you not use to the game.

This game is one of those games where you either pick it up and understand it right away, or its the hardest game for you.

If all else, you can sell it on ebay. Good luck.
Online races + time trials really help improve your skill.

I don't know dude, you sure you get better turns with the handbrake button? I'm not an expert at this game but I've got all golds as a cop (working on racer golds now) and never used the handbrake to turn. Mind you, maybe that's why I had a lot of trouble with the last two rapid response events... I'll give it a shot.

To TC, the game feels pretty "arcadey" to me, not at all like GT5. Although it is infuriating at times, especially the rapid response events. Hell, one of them took my about 40 tries and I'm not exagerating a single bit. It's not perfect, but definitely a great game.

only drove 4 'races' as a cop and i'm already fed up with this game

the cars handle like they have bags of potatoes instead of wheels

it feels arcade style, but it sucks bigtime

wish i didn't buy it

I found this a bit annoying at first, but I got used to it after a while. Ignoring this I think this is a top game
