"It's truly a next-gen racer."
On smoke: "...looks remarkably realistic, and not like the painted-on effects we've seen in games like Project Gotham Racing or Gran Turismo. This stuff dissipates just like the real thing."

WTF? The police have been excluded? that is so unfair!
what is "Street X" and "Grip Battle?"
WTF? mobile? mobile phones? the world is going crazy! *goes to his mobile phone and looks searches the catalog (in the future, of course...)*

Street X is from NFSU2, its like a circuit race within a tight drift track. Grip Battle is something new... I'm not sure on the exact details as EA have not released any as such (yet).
did you know that Street X tracks are actually exactly the same as from NFS Underground original? the only thing different is that the street is crappier.
Anyways, any more questions?
