game JUST about 'Porsches'?
the previous NFS games, the 5th one focuses solely on a type
of car we have all come to know and respect as the 'Porsche'.
A make that has a long and varied history and continues to do
so even today and hopefully for the distant future. Each car
has been intricately modelled to the highest of detail and had
its exact physics and engine design mapped on top.
result is a game, which re-creates the history of this stunning
make and places all its various gameplay modes around it. For
example, You can play in the typical old single player against
CPU and pedestrian traffic racing mode or play as a test driver
who gets to try out all the cars in a 'history mode'. In this
mode you follow the car through time and drive each one, upgrading
and buying new ones depending on your success.
the usual such as multiplayer and time demos still exist as
well as the ability to play test courses solely for trying out
cars, gone are the police 'pursuit' modes and crash-em-up style
races, NFS5 preferring to focus on core racing rather than anything
else. Although this is perhaps one area that should have been
left alone, NFS5 can feel a little bland at times due to the
lack of original play.
