Potentially great game, let down only by EA.

First the game. Gone is the tuning your own car, as found in all the previous NFS games, and to be honest, I quite like that. All that's left for the main campaign is to follow the fairly dramatic story with a background to match. To be honest, this story is one of the best I've played in quite a while, and thank god they got rid of the dumb "escape from police for 5hrs continuously from the older NFS. Some stages really get your heart pumping. But that's where the good ends, and where the faults begin. the game is extremely buggy, I personally suffered from the "Stuck at 99%" bug during installation, then the "crash at stage 8" bug. The visuals are nothing special, especially considering their using the same Frostbite 2 engine from BF3.The game play becomes repetitive, the game unbalanced (found some of the earlier stages much harder than the last), the cars hardly differentiated in terms of performance, Logitech Wheel support is stuffed etc.. It had the potential to be an awesome game, and the potential is still there, assuming EA is willing to release a patch or 2000. I gave it a 3/5 because it's a racing game that I actually enjoyed (when it worked) in a long time otherwise it'll be worth -1 for the effort EA actually put into it (or lack of). Perhaps it would be more enjoyable on console, where the bugs I suffered don't exist.
