Don't know about the rest of the world, but in germany it's not f2p or free of charge - you can only dl a "demo" giving you a peek until level 10.

Have fun playing it, loved the series :)

yes i know about the level 10 limit but you can still continue to race but your level will be restricted to 10. It's not exactly free free, but still free to play

Love most of the NFS series (have a couple of them on the 360), but I despise FREE software that's not really free!

They think it's clever marketing, but it has a negative impact on me, and I can't be the only one.
If they'd released it completely free with no strings attached a couple of months before a new NFS was due out, I think they'd have got it right.

I always avoid these kind of promotions.

Krush.

it's kind of impossible to make a totally free MMO since they need to pay for the servers etc. and asking for something totally free from a big company like EA is illogical :D

Which is why they shouldn't be allowed to use the word "Free".

The latest one is the "Unlimited Internet access" (fair usage policy), which means that it simply isn't unlimited.

While people fall for that sort of marketing, companies will keep using it.
And considering that Advertising and Marketing have been around for an age, the legislation concerning a lot of it is pretty poor, hence companies doing what they want until they get their wrists slapped.

:D :D :D

If it was just a free racing game like the earlier Need for Speed games I might be interested, but it's just another shovelware title.
