    wow... that's a long delay since the euro release. this game was ok... but IMO too many invisable walls which really started to piss me off. It's not as bad for corner bluring like NFSU was... but i was able to get over the visability issue in NFSU and enjoyed it way more then I did this NFS:PU release.

    No, underground came out before it but Porsche Unleashed was made and finished first. The two games had different publishers so that's why they were released in a strange manner.

    I had quite a bit of fun with this one when the (E) was released, but it still suffers from the problem that was also in NFS:UG where you just sometimes cannot see those corners! It's a lot of fun once you've memorised the track layout though and the graphics are incredible.

    I'm still anticipating NFS:UG 2 on the GBA, I really want to see their improvements and hopefully they'll have listened and fixed the "hard to see corners" issue!

    Sadly I think that this, and pretty much every other game that tries to do 3D on the GBA does not look good or play well. But, opinions are like arseholes, right? [​IMG]

    I much rather the mode7 F-Zero/Mario Kart approach to racers on the GBA, they're much more fun. Especially being able to see upcoming corners.. [​IMG]

    i don't think you are an asshole believing this. it's common knowledge that 3D on gba is one of the most tricky things due to the limited processing capacity and the limited display.

    Yeah, not many people saw the EU version coming. So pay attention on the EU releases too.

    Was testing it out, sorry 'bout that.

    Anyways, can't the mods/admins disable the sound feature?

    That's the one! If you stay in the thread long enough, it happens again. [​IMG] Sorry for the OT, I just needed to know if I was going crazy (especially since I turn all the default Windows sounds off!)

    I personaly like seeing the images side by side, instead of one on top of the other.

    But I disagree that there arn't any good 3d games/racers on GBA. Good 3d Racers: V-Rally 3, Stuntman (but it is kinda tricky), Top Gear Rally (even though i don't like the tracks), NFS:U (except it has the corner issue... but i got over that). Good other 3d games: astrix & oblix xxl, 007 Nightfire, Ecks vs Sever 2 Balistic. 3d games on the GBA are possiable... but among the good 3d releases, there's more bad releases that arn't very well thaught out or they just cut corners and end up with a crappy game (look at MoH:Underground... eeew.)
