Wow and apparently no one cares Lol. I downloaded and played very little before work. Was kinda hoping some impressions or thoughts would be on OS.
My very limited time didn't wow me that's for sure but I'm going to give a little more time after,work.

Here's my first impression. Started the game up this morning had a cuple hours to play before leaving for work. fire it up and I get something along the lines of Sorry the EA servers are currently down, we are working to correct the problem, please try again later.

I will never buy a game like this, a game that has to be online or connected to servers to play, never. I finally did get connected, Two words come to mind , Lame , ridiculous.

I want to support this because I have Rivals and it was decent, but got boring pretty quick. I think I'll wait for my roommate to play it. He preordered it and I'll get a chance to see it up close before spending the money.

I'm playing this right now and I'm liking it so far. I don't know that I would get bored with this in a week, but I'm having fun with the game.

Played it a little last night and I know its early, but the acting and characters were really cringe worthy in my opinion. Seemed like they were trying so hard to be cool and hip that it was borderline corny at times. Since it is a trial, ill keep on playing it to see how the progression works and to see if it is worth a purchase. I definitely need to give it more time before I can make a decision about the game.

Wasn't impressed by this game during the beta; it just didn't grab my interest like I was hoping it would. I might give it a try on EA access but I'm not getting my hopes up. And I'm not sure if this was just something in the beta but I wouldn't mind driving around in the day, instead of always at night and most of the time in the rain.

That's intentional... Campy

Played it for maybe 15 minutes and just couldn't play it anymore. It's so bad IMO, you can't even change the controls and use manual.

The driving is really bad, the graphics are ugly, and apparently it's always raining. The story seems pretty NFS cliche too not that I was expecting anything different.

NFS needs to stop making these games honestly, they are bad.

Glad I wasn't the only one. Thought I was going crazy. I couldn't find where to change to manual as well.

Was part of the BETA community for this. I found it tried way too hard be NFS: Rivals/Most Wanted-esque, and fell short in handling, AI, and graphics/atmosphere.

Also, and being a guy pushing 40: the dialogue/characters in this game resemble late teenagers, at best. VERY inane and glaring. If you don't have a tolerance for this...be warned. I admit this aspect really turned me off. It literally kept me from playing it.

It's games like this that let me really appreciate Drive Club.

A bit OT, but why isn't there a Motorstorm game for next gen? That series was a blast.
 
# 11 ODogg @ 10/31/15 03:59 PM
Actually they are adding motorcycles to Driveclub.

I finally got an hour in with the game and I'm going to go against the grain here and say I really loved it.

At first I got annoyed because it was so much on rails but once I got through the tutorial stuff that issue was alleviated.

As for the cut scenes, they are campy yes indeed and that's how EA intended them to be and I have no issue with them.

I really like how they've copied a good bit of the livery from the Forza series as well.. I spent about 20 minutes and made a pretty cool customized car.

All in all, it's exactly what I thought it was and I'm more than happy with it. Day one Deluxe edition purchase here...

Played about an hour but the acting and cut-scenes are terrible. Handling/turning sucks IMO, but I am coming from Forza Horizon 2. I want to like it because I enjoyed Need for Speed Underground and games like that back in the day. I will play more of the trial, but I see this game being in the vault in 6 months. I will not buy.
 
# 13 ocat @ 10/31/15 08:08 PM
Wow this game is straight up trash. Driving model of bumper cars, the cheesiest, corny acted cut scenes for this "dude bro" story had me cringing from the get go. Latest 20 mins before I deleted it. So bad EA, it's so so bad
 
# 14 KingTocco @ 10/31/15 09:01 PM
If the gameplay was good I wouldn't care about the cutscenes because it least it has some sort of story, but everything is bad IMO so it just magnifies it. I just want another NFS Underground, why is that so hard to make. That game would sell so many copies, people loved those.

I'm not asking for Sim either, just give me Forza Horizon 2 driving or similar to it and you've got a great game.

I now have about 10 hours into the full retail game, and I will say that once you get further into the game and mod your car enough - the handling really does get much better. Initially you and your car suffer from low grade equipment, but many of the issues I had early on have since been negated by upgrades and understanding of the mechanics.

I didn't play much of the beta, but it was enough for me to want to buy the full game. Downloading this on my ps4 now, looking forward to it.

Depends on who you ask it seems, if you have an Xbox I suggest trying the free trial version before buying.

I'm loving it but some people seem to hate it because of the campy FMV
