I play the demo for NFS: The Run on my X-box 360. And I have to say it looks very intriguing to play for me. Especially the Avalanche race where have to dodge falling debris at the same time trying to stay in the lead. But If I bought the game I'd have to get the PC version so I could use my Logitech G25 racing wheel.

Anyone get this on PC? I'm torn between pc or ps3, and I don't see a demo on PSN, thought there was one? Something tells me the hype for this will die down as quick as it did for HP.

Is it arcade handling Or will a G27 Feel right.

I found once Shift 2 was set proper with my G27, It is a good feeling game. Id hate to go from Semi real to arcade.

Probly look at console versions of the game cause everything I have heard to date is the pc version is locked in @ 30 fps unless they patched to unlock the framelock on it.

Finally started playing this since I bought it on Origin when it was cheap.
Gotta say, it's a load of fun, really similar to Hot Pursuit, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It is in fact locked at 30fps, which is disappointing, but the game is still very enjoyable. Much, much better than Shift 2, so I'd say it's worthwhile if you can find it for cheap.

I prefer Hot Pursuit over The Run. The races are OK, but everything else is just not that polished. And why the hell do I start the game with a Tier 4 car and get capped with Tier 4 for the rest of the career mode?!

Once my friend gives it back, I'm gonna sell or trade it in.

The career mode was very short, key board re mapping is bugged plus some crashing like game freezes during auto saves. Definatly wouldn'y pay sticker price for it, I got it on the origin black friday sale under $20 and still feel like I over paid.

Really seems that NFS gets worse as time goes by.
