    I wouldn't mind it as much if they didn't go on record saying this ''port'' would be the greatest thing ever and DX11 was gonna give 110% more performance! and other bull**** like ''it's gonna have good wheel support''.

    I expected a game that was ready out of the box but that's not the case with this game, performance issues, MP flaws (interface blocking the screen/voice chat auto on) and losing progression (not that this game really has any), with all this i just can't understand people actually defending this game like ''sure it's **** but that's no reason to bash it'' i paid 40 bucks for what is essentially a beta, right now this isn't worth 10 bucks or any money for that matter.

    EDIT: was gonna add the whole no singleplayer thing but that's a design choice though i do think they could have mentioned that there wasn't one before people paid for this game.

    The PC port isn't entirely broken. It runs fine with 60 fps most of the time, but stutters due to a bug. A showstopper bug that makes the game difficult to enjoy, but the engine is solid overall.
    ...if EA only cared to push out a patch for it.

    This game don't stutter at all it runs fine with
    "Adaptive Vsync" but when I use vsync on dam the game has low fps and stutters a bit the downside is it doesn't support sli my gpu usage is almost 0 on 3 cards and 1 card is at 95 percent lol

    well for me it ran like crap which i would consider unplayable and have just resigned it to the bargain bin, if they fix performance then cool, otherwise im not interested.

    I cant believe they released the PC version in that state, its unbelievable

    yeah pretty much same here ~:D

    wasnt expecting anything different really, but then again I do love arcade racers going back to the days of outrun and Chase HQ.

    Was playing it last night and getting the super fast cars and it was pretty good fun, just what I expected!

    Shame about the graphics issues but with tweaking the settings I can get it to run at 60fps most of the time and not drop low enough to mess up the flow otherwise.

    Us PC owners sometimes feel more concerned with frame rates than fun :D not that I am excusing poor ports ;)

    You have to wonder how they werent aware of it before the launch.
    Doesnt put them in a good light, shipping beta software without even knowing!

    The developers at Criterion probably knew about it, but were told by their bosses from EA to ignore it and work on other stuff (like DLC) instead since they don't really care for the PC version.
    The typical situation when you need to walk the line between doing what you know is right and not getting fired by your boss for insubordination.

    A bit off topic, but surrounding the recent trend of kickstarter campaigns for indie games there was an interview with an experienced game developer who said that many issues in games don't result from incompetent developers, but from management that says "the customers will buy it anyway, I won't pay you to fix that".

    Shame that we (pc gamers) probably won't see any of that DLC.

    Guys,

    When it comes to calibrating the screen in the games settings, if I set the contrast so that the logo is barely visible, then start asjusting the black logo, the white logo disappears completely. Is that supposed to happen?

    Aren't both logos, white and black supposed to be barely visible at the same time?

    I don't have it now to test, but I'm quite sure it's not normal, all logos should be visible. Also, i don't know if you calibrate your screen from game, but try to calibrate it from monitor, if you can't, and you are not satisfied with contrast/gama/brightness ratio of the screen, change it, it is one of the most important part of the PC. It will save your time, and games would be much more enjoyable.

    Good to hear, been avoiding this until it's fixed.

    I can handle some framerates issues in most genres, even FPS's, but not in racing games.

    ''The pack will allow players to mod their game with five very fast cars'' That's a weird word to use for DLC.

    Also i'm wondering if PC will see any of this DLC since the last few NFS games didn't offer DLC on this platform which was especially annoying for HP 2010 cause it heavily lacked content, so does this game.

    EDIT: Apparently it IS on pc much to my amazement.
