Hello guys, I was thinking about getting the most recent need for speed most wanted game but before I do can someone let me a little about the settings. I am a fan of the very first NFS underground and liked it cause the controls were exactly like grand turismo. Is the new NFS most wanted set up like this? I've played several games after the 1st underground and have found some games did away with the manual transmission having only automatic settings in place (boo). Also, is the D-pad usable. I find myself fumbling with the stick when I steer using the left analog stick and favor the use of the d-pad over the analog stick. So my questions again are:
1. Does this game allow manual transmission
2. Can you use the D-pad
Thanks for your help guys.
guess no replies but I found out through the grapevine that NFSMW does not allow for manual settings and probably no D-pad. Therefore I will not be getting this game. All driving games, in my opinion, would be better if it all had manual settings. Automatic transmission whether in games or in real life has almost no recovery speed when you need to decelerate and accelerate through a turn. Driving simply sucks if you cant go from 4th to redlining 2nd and then shifting to 3rd through a turn trustin your tires without using your breaks. Boo NFSMW
Yea there's no manual transmission option in NFSMW.
The lack of replies you received was probably because your post was made around 12.40am, the Forums are much quieter then.
