It also seems rushed / untested. There are lots of polish issues like how when choosing a paintjob the lighting is so drastically different compared to when driving (very dark green in the garage turns to light sea foam on the road), inability to rotate the car to see what your stickers look like, inability to zoom the map, graphical glitches (pink flashes occasionally when textures load), etc.
It should be a great game but unfortunately it is pretty bad.
If you purchase it, by the disc instead of DD so at least you have the chance to resell it if you don't like it.
It's Cops vs. Racers, not sure what you expected. The idea is to race around and beat the crap out of the other side.
The Migrating Host thing is absolutely bothersome. It needs to be fixed. I'm a bit suprised that's it's there because the process was seamless in Burnout Paradise.
EA didn't make this game, it was made by people from Criterion Games, with Criterion behind them. It's not Simcitified - it's a mix of Burnout Paradise, a Criterion game, with NFS Most Wanted. The map is similar to BP's map, along with the driving style and a lot point scoring methods.
I tested the paintjob issue you have with several different colors including Green. I didn't see it. The street colors were the same as the garage colors. How accurate are the colors on your TV? I check and touch up the calibration on my VT50 every few months.
I have noticed the occasional texture load. It always seems to be something in the distance, and it's never more than a very small part of the screen and it fills in very quickly.Edited by robnix - 11/23/13 at 6:15pm
