Does it have native widescreen support? I hope it's not as bad as the "carbon" demo. NFS has really been sub par for a long time..........

By no means am I calling anything crap so relax. I just notice that the graphics aren't fluent and jerky.

You're not setting up something right because I can run everything on MAX and it is fuild as fluid can be. AND IT HAS NATIVE WIDESCREEN SUPPORT!!!!!!!!!!! It looks beautiful @ 1920X1200 and the graphics are excellent! THey have finally redeemed the NFS series I think. This game is on my must have list now!!!!

Acutally, I have to take it back just a touch. I do get an occasional hiccup, but nothing bad. If the real game is this good, I still will definitely be buying it.

It might be that I have vsycn on and its holding back the frames and thats what is making it appear jerky but at 75fps it shouldn't be.

Yeah the demo is a little bit on the short and ugly side...but IF supports native WS gaming and IF they improve the graphics in the final full version I probably will buy it as well. I'm not holding out to much hope...after all it is EA we are talking about

If you think the game is ugly then you must not be maxing out the detail levels. I'd have to say this is the best looking NFS game since Most Wanted 2. All the Underground, most wanted and Carbon were the worst looking/running games ever. This game truly will redefine the NFS series and they will win back driving game fans like me that are sick of the stupid fart canned garbage that was out the last 4 games.

B1|K1 calm down. It almost sounds like your schilling for EA (for a real example of schilling see PA's comic Penny Arcade! - On Botany)

It is nicer than its predecessors but it just seemed a little kludgey in comparison to newer games I've played recently.
Not quite "last gen" but not in the same league as other games that came out this year. Maybe "ugly" is too harsh a judgement...or maybe my standards have been raised but it didn't take my breath away like some of it early predecessors did. It was OK but nothing special.

Thats just my opnion, your entiled to yours so just relax.
