Good game, but not as good as the others.
This game is actually a step up for Need For Speed, but it good have been better.
The gameplay is alright, its not as fun as Hot Pursuit 2/Underground series, Most Wanted/Carbon but its still a 6 or 7 out of 10 in that category. With all those games you want to play so badly but with this game you just want to finish it. I still think its fun, when the story-line is there. The story-line gets better as you get further into the game. The story line would probably around an 8. Its stupid, but pretty cool, as you become friends with street racers, gangs, and smugglers. You then have to take them down, by ramming into their car a few times, and then it automatically arrests them. The jobs are great, and have a challenge to them that no game has. You steal a McLaren F1, a Bugatti Veyron, and are framed for killing someone, making every cop chase you. The cops are much harder then Most Wanted and Carbon, and just around 5 cops will trigger an SUV or a State Pursuit vehicle chasing after you. The car list is amazing with Lotus Elise to Audi TT to Chevy Camaro to Mercedes McLaren to Aston Martin to Pagani Zonda. The game has a realistic push to it, in car physics but is unrealistic other wise. You can drive a Chevy Camaro and beat Pagani Zondas.
The car list would get an 8 out of 10. Realism is probably a 7 out of 10, because they tried. This game is great if you have free time and want a racing game but I actually would not have mind getting a different game. The games great, but I feel otherwise. Get it if you think you need it. But really, this game has an unfinished touch that I wish wasn't there.Read full review
