NFSMW: No Horn?
No replay. Really bad here since they almost had replays with
the option to move the camera view around (which is how they
made some of those live action sequences you see in the game),
but ran out of time and dropped the replay feature entirely.
Would be nice if a later release got the replays back.
No ****pit view.
No way to turn off the peformance matching mode in online ranked
play (which I hate since it generally just slows down the faster
cars like the Carerra GT or the Elise).
No way to turn off traffic in career mode or online drag races.
Then again, with maybe 20 to 30 players online at any one time
the online issues are a moot point. I played online less than
a dozen times before I lost interest. Not all the games fault
though, it's just that online racing started back in 1999
with NFS4:High Stakes, and the thrill is long gone by now for me,
and there are lots of other games I want to spend my limited gaming
I have to give the creators of World Racing 2 some credit regarding
the traffic. The AI are relatively faster in WR2, and having traffic
on meant a player was restarting way too many races in career mode,
which was already very long. The creators realized how annoying the
traffic was to most players and added an option to get rid of it.
