    Finally, a port that's actually good. Going to get this as the PC version is an unoptimized buggy piece of shit.

    inb4 "This turns out to be as buggy as the PC version except they figured that it'd be "fun" if they added motion controls and the tilting of the Game Pad will be the last thing you'll remember about the title before you pawn it in for a quick buck"

    I kid, I hope it'll be a good port. :P

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    I just watched the video and to be fair I noticed quite a bit of that trademark "WiiU jitter" in its framerate.

    The effects and overall look are really nice though.

    Of all the possible ports, is this one really the Most Wanted?

    MUCH BETTER!! Now you just remind me of me THQ...
    No doubt, I was just going to say.. wow, this looks really good. I hope it actually turns out good. But it was reassuring hearing them say "we finished the other versions, took a break, came back and worked on the WiiU version".

    I will admit, I'm not the biggest NFS fan, I do enjoy them, had a blast with Underground and Underground 2... can't remember if I played any more. I like the fast paced games like this, and like Burnout. But I have to say, as small as a detail as it is, that is one of the best looking roads in a game I have ever seen.
    You gotta remember, it's being recorded so there's probably a little bit of a hiccup going on there.

    Looks more like the need for pretty textures, really. Yes, it looks nice. Yes, it looks fast. But it doesn't have the weapons of a Mario kart/Sonic all stars game, nor the over the top stunts and crashes of burnout paradise.

    I can't recall anything from the original versions either. Except the "hey...didn't I already picked this game from a gaming bin already years ago?" that comes from a serious lack of imagination from the ones picking names.

    ERROR!
    About time some 3rd party developer took interest, if this is what they accomplished in 6 months of having the devkit then imagine having even more time or better yet, making a completely new game from ground up on the machine. Glad to see some of those mainstream rumors getting debunked.
