I tried both of that games and I'm shocked a bit. These games appeared almost at the same time but the graphics in NFS World is incomparable even with that in NFS Carbon (enough said about cool graphics in NFS Hot Pursuit). I can understand that in NFS World there is more freedom etc. so it's easier to handle NFS Hot Pursuit, but again - in NFS Carbon the city was quite big and the graphics was better.
Maybe I do not understand something and there are some secret setting for the graphics - but can anybody tell why graphics in NFS World is such?
