Was it one of the Underground games that had Kelly Brook in? If so just bring her back, the game will take care of itself then.

It was Brooke Burke in Underground 2. I just want a new NFS as good as Criterions Hot Pursuit from a couple of years ago. MW was ok.

I always preferred the Underground NFS games. For me the neons, bodykits and arcade handling are what NFS is about rather than extensive cop chases and realistic racing.

Kelly was on the back cover but i can't remember what role she played in-game. I can only remember Brooke Burke. What's wrong with me?!

I hope this isn't true to be honest, as I doubt they would focus on the deep tuning and drag and drift events that made the original two so great.

Same here. A return to the neon lit chav-mobiles with arcade handling would be most welcome! That said, I am quite enjoying working my way through Most Wanted on the Wii U.

Underground 1&2 were both great games, but for me High Stakes/Road Challenge is the perfect example of the Need for Speed series.

I think Underground although good at the time, has had its day. Back then when it was released it was right in the middle of the Fast And Furious craze when young thugs would try and modify (vandalize) their puny 1 litre cars (and make them no faster) after watching the film, hence the popularity of the game. That seems to have died away in recent years, as people have moved on, grown up and got into other things or bought better cars (even small, basic cars nowadays are pretty decent quality) and are not into that scene anymore. I think the appeal of such a game nowadays would be wasted. Sure there are tons of car games like Forza where you can modify your car, but most of the tuning options in the game are for genuine tuning and add actual benefit on the track. Underground was more about showing off with Neon Lights etc. I'd prefer another traditional Nfs game like Hot Pursuit or the very first Nfs ever, where you unlock (or preferably buy with in game money earned from completing races) genuine exotic sports and supercars. As a car enthusiast I would also like to see a return to the information you got about the actual cars. They did a bit of this in Hot Pursuit which was great, but I'd like even more, like the old Nfs games where you had videos, slideshows etc. To me that's what Nfs is about. Then again, maybe I'm just old and remember the good 'ol days too much!

Agreed. Like many other franchises, it was revamped to cater for the Michael bay market and it has got old very fast.
EA Sports: It's in the game(for a price).

I'm happy with yearly Nfs games but I must be the only person who preferred a non-open world setting for the Burnout games. Burnout 2 was the best of the lot, and 3, Domination and Revenge were very enjoyable too. I just got really bored of Paradise, and hated the fact that the roads weren't closed off in the actual race and always ended up going in the right direction, only to find the road I was actually on was a dead end or bent round to go in completely the wrong direction. Very frustrating. I also just got bored of the open world - there simply wasn't enough to do in it. The earlier games were more structured, pick your car, track and go for it. I also found them more fun overall.
