that A3D I hear?
NFS5 puts the newest 3D sound mediums such as A3D and EAX to
their best possible use with the ambient noises of birds and
waterfalls alongside the ever-present hum of a mild mannered
engine. Sound is of the highest quality and is always accompanied
by an enjoyable techno-rock style of music, something that can
really get the heart pumping during a heated race.
the music won't appeal to everybody and there can be times in
a race of such little activity that it doesn't warrant the music
at all, yet it plays on. Perhaps a touch of dynamic music would
have been a wiser choice, music that attaches itself to the
action on-screen a little more.
is a gem, from the graphics to the sound and gameplay, through
and through it's a work of art. Lacking more gameplay modes,
tracks and weather effects to improve last ability, but still
at its heart beats a world class game. It's good but could have
done with an extra couple of months in development to give it
that needed extra depth.
