Has/did anyone play the 10hr trial via EA Access? I'm about half way through the trial and so far i'm impressed!

 

First of all,the handling. The handling has been greatly improved since the 2015 game. The cars grip and don't fish tail the moment you step on the accelerator. Theres no slider for Grip/Drift, drifting seems a little bit more difficult to do. The on screen instructions say to flick the analogue stick but I find it just steers the car instead lol

 

You're main garage is based at the airport and additional garages can be purchased across the map. Tuner Shops are also scattered around where you'll purchase the performance upgrades. They've split the races into separate categories, car purchases are made from each dealer and that car can only be used for that type of race.

 

Modification wise it looks to be the same,but like NFS2015 everything is locked to begin with until you start to complete achievements. The wheel range looks the same,although i only had a quick scan through. The paint/vinyl editor looks to be the same as before.

 

The police have been improved and are alot more aggressive,although in the Trial you don't have too much involvement with them.

 

Photo mode is still good,and with the new addition of daylight theres gonna be some amazing photos come out of it. I did noticed you can't change the wheel position unlike 2015,whether thats in the full game i'm unsure.

 

I'll get some screenshots posted in here

The handling was the sticking point for me, the drifting was incredibly forced and the car would initiate a drift without you trying to do it, it felt very artificial and arcade like. It seemed to steer the drift for you and it didn't really feel very satisfying. Good to hear that has been improved.

Quite excited to try this game. I skipped over the last NFS but was always tempted. The always online crap put me off.

Looks cool in your pics.

 

I watched a few reviews online yesterday and it wasn't very positive! Disappointing. The economy and the performance mods look stupid. I may just wait for it to come down in price a bit.

 

I don't have time to sink hours into games anymore, as much as I'd like to, and it seemed it was a bit of a grind to unlock modifications etc.

 

I'm actually thinking I might pick up a copy of the last NFS. Cheap now, so not too worried about it flaws.

 

What would you say the comparison is from the last NFS in terms of mods? Are there a lot more or better mods in Payback? How soon can you access them / have money to pay for them?

Both have the same types of modifications,but they've introduced a few new items in Payback. You'll have to unlock the ability to change items in both games.

 

Yes there is alittle bit of a grind,but i guess thats just what it is? I think it was to stop you getting max levels straight away and kinda makes you play the game abit more.
