    Well, I had finally got a new copy of NFS: Carbon sitting on the porch of my house, after I had realised MY copy was a bad one.

    Here's the catch:

    I had the Wii version, but I got the X360 version instead. :(

    I got my Wii copy today, but this experience has left me bitter.

    Has anyone else had troubles/complaints with EA?

    youll be better off with none of the versions (to me NFS went downhill after underground 2) though if i were you i would pick 360

    EA isn't known for high quality products. more bugs in the battlefield games than you can count, and their customer support is pretty terrible for all games they make in general. but yet still I buy from them.
    sad. :(

    EA's games are usually pretty half-assed

    Okay, after NFS: MW, they weren't that good.

    For the X360 reccomendations, no.
    I simply will not buy a MS/Sony console until one of them apologizes to Nintendo for slamming them countless times.

    If one of those companies do, I'll be a proud Wii60/PSWii owner.
    Until then, just a Wii is fine, thanks.

    EDIT: Plus, does EVERYONE have enough money for 2-3 consoles?
    Again, no.

    If you really want to see just how bad EA is, go to the rock band technical forums on its website. Everything they are making for that game is breaking and people are pissed. Plus their customer service is god-awful. I hate EA outside of sports games.

    My trouble with EA is them putting the European release date of Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 back till February for no apparent reason and they haven't said why they have done it. the Wii version is out in america so why isn't it out over here? Now all i can do is sit and drool over the videos of online play on youtube. :cryin:

    There is a delay in Europe always, because it has something to do with your TVs. Seriously.

    Yes, but usually this delay is only a few weeks not 4 months!

    ^They probably have to some language settings since it goes to France, Germany, Spain, etc. as well.

    I think the Need for Speed series started going downhill after EA released Underground. It started there NFS Street Racing genre. They never appealed to me. Instead, I prefer the NFS games from a long time ago like Hot Pursuit 2 or High Stakes.

    I haven't played a NFS game since Underground 2, but yesterday I played ProStreet and it's surprisingly good.

    EA is great for sports games - probably the best with the Madden, NBA and Fifa series. EA Sports - It's in the game!

    I know exactly what you mean. EA has done a **** job with Wii games (excluding MOH Heroes 2) and I know cause I have plenty of them unfortunately.

    EA makes some really crappy games sometimes but sometimes when they actually try to be innovative they make good ones like skate. and MoH heroes 2. most of their good games come from companies that they buy however. when EA makes a game their sole focus is to make sure that it sells a ton without caring if its good or not. they'll use any marketing tactics necessary. just watch. after creating skate. and MoH heroes 2 they'll make direct sequels for both games and ruin the franchises. just like they did with need for speed underground (started out great, 2 sucked, then most wanted sucked, then carbon and they realized they couldn't sell a game based on the fact that its a street racer so they made the awful prostreet). i know that all companies focus on their games making money as well, but they go beyond the required expectations and people buy it simply cuz its a good/great/legendary game, but EA says "okay how much can we skimp without getting complaints about how terrible our game is" and meets expectations while marketing their game as exceeding such.

    OH MY GOD yes.

    NBA Live...controls are shaky, too easy to make shots, block shots, and steal.
    Madden 08...on the EA.com forums, a guy compiled a list of the 37 glitches in the game. I mean, this was a really fun game, but there were so many glitches and stuff.
    MOHH2...Invincibility glitch. Enough said.
    Need For Speed: Prostreet...worst racing game I have ever played.
