GA-Sports heeft een preview van NFS4: High Stakes in elkaar gedraaid. Aan de screenshots te zien zijn er geen heftige veranderingen ten opzichte van NFS3. Dit zegt GA-Sports over de graphics:
Not surprisingly, the graphics are pretty darn impressive. Detail is superb in both the cars and the environment, and things move along at a quick pace most of the time (I only noticed a bit of slowdown when coming into a turn packed with AI cars). Reflections look nice, but aren't true reflections of the surrounding environment, and can be a bit strong with the darker colored cars. Little graphical niceties abound. Unlike most games (which tint the windows and barely let you catch a glimpse of the motorist), in replays NFS: High Stakes clearly shows a polygonal driver grasping the wheel, and turning it as the car navigates the track. Great! In sections of tracks covered with trees, you'll often see tiny leaves slowly falling to ground as well. Dust kicked up by cars, flying pieces of glass after collisions, and collision damage are all done quite well. One other thing I like about this game is the fact that the dashboards are not generic – each is specific to the cars. You can choose from a vast assortment of cameras to view the replays from, my favorite being the TV broadcast-style angle.
En hier heb je alvast 3 screenshots:
