    Hey all,

    This is one thing that has bugged since I have had the game NFS:MW.

    If I manage to get a nice lead on the competitors it doesn't matter how fast I drive they still manage to catch up with me. Its annoying because I just thumped Blacklist number 5 but half way through the race he went completely the wrong way and got stuck yet by the end of the race he was on my tail again.

    I am not moaning at the game as it is a great game it just seems a little annoying that I can sometimes loose not because I have crashed but because the computer controlled car has managed to catch up with me as if I was doing 10mph.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Yeah, it always annoyed me as well. I guess this way the programmers try to keep the heat up during the game. I still like the play it though! At least this way they have room for improvement for the next episode.

    I hate that too. Its called "catch-up". Its enabled in career mode but in regular races you can set it on/off.

    Agreed. I find that most racing games are built around frustration. Its like they are designed to piss you off. Most of the time, its one mistake, and you lose.

    However, it also lets you catch up when youve crashed.

    This "catch-up" thing is pretty unrealistic .... how can someone who has fallen behind by atleast 45s or more catch up even if u go through the perfect lap ?? And vice versa too ....

    LOL, idk. I know that when I usually get a good lead I can hold it. That's not always the case cause sometimes I really screw up on a turn cause I'm not really thinking about it. I'm more annoyed at what the cops can do when I'm being chased, like being able to keep up with me no matter what. Of course after like one turn they are like 1 mile behind me, but up until then they are on my ass. Ohh and the biggest one of all is that they can safely run over spike strips. WTF IS THAT ALL ABOUT. You know how many time I've been caught cause of that SH!T. Ohh yea, how about me being able to fly above the SUV cops. How the heck do I go OVER that? I go under the sedan cops, but get stuck on the SUVs, that's nice.

    It is a great game, I'm not suggesting it isn't its just so annoying that you can push as hard as you want, nail every corner perfectly but the guys behind always catch up at the point you don't want they too.

    Also one other thing is it normal that I found blacklist number 15 was the most difficult so far. (I'm up to number 4 now)

    It's meant to be unrealistic, to keep the races interesting.

    That catch-up thing is also buggy in speedtrap races, if you fall behind the opponents, your car will go faster, but if you're placed first, the opponents can go faster than you! Only noticed this once when I finished way before the other opponents, but still lost because my speeds were MUCH worse, too much to have just messed up on the nessecary points. (never happened again though, and this is one of the very few racing games that I think to be fun)

    If you want realistic racing play GT4 or Forza

    Ah GT4 with its realistic AI that follows the racing line with such precision that if you get in their way they just smash into the back of you.

    Nah seriously though I understand that NFS:MW isn't meant to be some uber sim but still I hate the catch up. Also if I fall behind I want to be able to catch up using my skill not because the other cars end up going slower.

    The catch up is the reason i stopped playing. I'm on BL3 and I just couldn't be bothered anymore.

    Lol, if you fool around with the customization on the car, you can make the steering ALOT more sensitive. So much so, that you never have to worry about crashing.

    Just wondering if you guys can answer me something? I bought the black edition cause it was on sale. I read somewhere that you can access a couple of cars right away like a camero or something. Where can I get these cars or do I have to unlock them. I just want to try them out in the quick race.
