I want NFS to make a new freakin Most Wanted! LoL

I gave this game an hosnest go. It fails. Miserably. I have never been so frustrated from a single game.

1st of all, it had issues with my G25, the wheel it was supposed to work with. It decided to think the Brake pedal was actually down arrow, so when I got into the game, the menu would be flying around like mad. No amount of changes in settings/logitec profiles fixed this. I had do wait a day for someone to figure it out, and had to download a logitech wingman calibration clearing program. Lovely. 2ndly, why is there no exit to main menu once you are in a race? Come on....

Now comes my next issue. It was working great yesterday. Even got to do some races! Today, it decides it would rather crash every time a race starts. And not like it doesnt warn me by just crashing off the start, but its consistently about 2-5 seconds into the first lap of the race.... Last straw, I just uninstalled. I had high hopes for this game....

It is actually rather fun, unlike the past lineup of fail.

There's suppose to be a new NFS game from the makers of the Burnout series coming out in 2010. That's the one I'm looking forward to.

lag lag lag. And ontop of that my graphic settings corrupt after a while if I change them so I have to essentially reset them every time I want to play.

Also the Veryon is not a racer, its gear ratios are not set up for it, its fast yes, but it has no real grunt in the low end.

I found the game fun with the slow cars but has the cars get faster it does not scale good and it lost it's appeal pretty quickly.

Graphics are somewhat laggy too, that might explain my comment above. Running on a 260GTX, not even full details and it's not always very fluid.
