Update: It turns out you can turn off most of the game's effects, not all of them:
Original Story: One of the most interesting aspects of Need for Speed Unbound so far is its visual style. It combines some quite realistic car models with cel-shaded characters and all kinds of extra effects, giving it a sort of graffiti and comic book look. We think it looks great, especially in the small gameplay clip shown earlier today. However, many are turned off by these flashy effects, and want to know if they can be disabled.
Good news: they can. The official NFS Twitter has confirmed you can indeed turn the effects off. "In fact, you can choose to never put them on in the first place," it continues. Obviously the style is quite important to the game, but if you're not a fan of the cartoonish embellishments, you can take them off.
It's always nice to have options, and it seems Unbound will let you choose how outlandish you want your racing experience to be. What do you think? Will you be leaving the effects on or turning them off? Tell us in the comments section below.
