Well I've yet to find anything good about it to be honest it seems they've just stripped out all the stuff that makes racing games appealing there's nothing to earn or strive towards.

Just curious though if the Vita version has the weather effects I've yet to notice any in game I'm starting to think they may have been cut as well.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

Yeah they are. It's kinda bummer but day/night time seems enough for me

I'm liking NFS. I agree that a lot of the car speed feels the same, but there are a few subtle differences with handling. I liked Burnout for PSP a lot better, but this is still pretty good. I was craving a decent car racer, and this'll fit the bill.

Is a shame if the weather isn't there I'm sure the Vita is more than capable, the games maybe not as bad as I'm making out I have had a couple of fun races there does seem to be a lot to explore and I haven't given the online mode a trial yet.

Think I'll still pick up WRC 3 for something with a little more realism though ironically I can remember the old psp version of that (FIA WRC Rally) actually did have pretty good weather effects.

I did. Looks like it's improved greatly since that first god-awful first trailer I saw. Might actually be an MC4 contender after all, but the player count (8? Really?) ain't looking' so nice, especially for $40. Glad I'm an iOS gamer.

Glad I'm a Vita/3DS/console/pc gamer. Oh and iOS too

Best of all the worlds.

It's a money issue, not a tech issue. They said the cap could be raised- it all depends on now successful the game is. Why spend more money on a server to allow 16 person multiplayer if it may not sell very well? I think it's a bit of a chicken and the egg dilemma, because the low multiplayer cap has turned some people off to it- people that would have bought it if the multiplayer had a higher cap.

Good point.
I just hope this game knocks it out of the park, because while I don't own a vita or Sony stock I would hate to see another flop or mediocre game come out. So far not many (if any) vita games have been, to my knowledge, truly "must own, this is amazing". This could be *that* game that changes it. We'll certainly see. Of course, some of this hinges on BO2's success...

I wrote Call of Duty off as soon as I realised Nihilistic were on the job as much as I'd love to be proved wrong and it would really help the Vita a lot if I was I'm not expecting good things.

Devs said if enough people buy the game they said they will increase the max player. This was mentioned on their tweeter posts long times ago. Please research before you judge... Lol
