    Fastlane is my all-time favorite iPhone game and I was wondering how NFS compares to it. I don't really feel like going through 37 pages of posts in the NFS thread. So whatya think? (don't post if you don't have both).

    they are both good. I'm not convinced the game is 9.99 worthy however it is a not a let down either. I enjoyed getting fastlane for 1.99 and I might be partial to it because of the price, however nfs has real cars which makes a racing game much more fun. sorry I can't be of more help. but the graphics of nfs are great, if graphics on fastlane aren't enough you will love nfs.

    NFSU has better graphics and the cut scenes from the game. fastlane seems so arcade like and basic.

    honestly- fast-lane is a racing game, whereas nfs is more an action game based around racing

    but i do highly recommend reading the 37 pages of posts, its not quite joules verne but its pretty good

    My first impressions of NFSU blew my mind because the controls were so easy to understand and it puts you into the game immediately.
    It may be a steeper price, but it's definitely worth it.

    There are lot of qualities in Fastlane. There's no doubt about it.

    But I didn't like it after playing it awhile: too much sharp turns that you were suppose to make running like crazy (or the opponents would simply fly away). In addition, some of the lanes were hard to read, specially running at 250 Km or more. It become frustrating very soon for me.

    NFSU is an arcade racing game with a defined theme and everything (cars, lanes, modes, story, customization, sounds, music) is well implemented and according to the game style.

    My vote goes to NFSU.

    A little bit biased since NFS has so much hype and talk going around about it?

    NFS for me.

    agreed.

    one's an action game and the other's more a simulation.

    I didn't like Fast lane all that much. NFS is a blast and I Love it. For me there is nothing to compare.

    NFS all the way

    I have never played nfs so my opinion doesn't really matter but I would get fastlane then 8 more 99c games. Yes I am a cheapo I value quantity over quality a lot of the time but you just can't argue with the fact that you couuld get 9 games for the price of nfs.

    Any other opinions? I'm kinda getting the feeling that not everyone here gave fastlane a fair chance. You have to play it a lot and you will get better. At first it seems really difficult but as you get better and unlock cars it becomes easier. I thought fastlane was impossible when I first got it but I kept playing, unlocked all the cars, and now I have completed everything except a few tracks in arcade perfection. It just sounds like fastlane is being way underrated by some. It is a great game controls and graphics. Give it another chance. Idk I guess nfs could be that good haha.

    in that case if everyone feels so strongly of nfs than I might pick it up. But ten bucks : ( so many other games coming out n it will basically make my iTunes card have $11 less on it : (

    For a casual audience NFS is the game they are more likely to like imo. It's easier. It looks nice. It has a lot of cars. Nice production values. If your a more hardcore racer I think you probably like fastlane more or are looking more towards Real Racing from Firemint.

    I wrote my impressions of need for speed on another site yesterday that I'll post over here but it still comes down to Fastlane is more of a racing game and Need for Speed is fun game that captures the fun of a racing game without really being a technical racing game that most gamers are use to.

    NFS's controls are much better IMO. I say that the graphics are better, and you can actually get real cars =].

    I definitely gave fastlane a fair chance. I unlocked every car, and I think (can't remember but I'm pretty sure I had to to unlock every car) I beat every race. I played on hard.

    I do have both and used to only play fastlane, but now that's off my phone and NFS is on =].

    Fastlane. No one here is up for a real racing game. They just want stuff on rails with super easy controls.

    there is virtually no skill progression in nfs. just upgrade cars to take out better opponents.

    In fastlane you can beat the whole game with the slowest car. And every car has a unique and different feel.

    NFS is just like a movie. Fun ride for the time it takes but no replay value.

    TMAC i think your more like me. So i suggest getting it if you just want something fun. It in no way compares to skill level and accuracy of fastlane.
