Summary: Bought this on a whim to fill the racing game whole in my heart, but was quick to learn this wasn't the racing game I was looking for. Still retains the 'acrade'-y feel Need for Speed always had. Gameplay wise you can take on the role of bad racer vs.
Summary: I've been playing NFS since the second one on my Voodoo graphics card, and this game just seems like an abomination of what was the original NFS III HP. The game is overall way too arcade like, and not realistic at all.
Summary: Ever since NFS Most Wanted, this franchise has gone way downhill. None of the following games have been able to live up to the amazing fun factor of that game. The Shift series is great, but I consider that a whole different series seeing as it's more of a simulator rather than arcade.
Summary: If you really liked the Need for Speed (NFS) Undercover or Most Wanted, this installment will leave you wanting more. It really does have great visuals and spectacular landscapes, but its free drive mode is a poor add-on which has no bearing upon your career progression and does not include any...
Summary: My biggest complaint is the absolutely horrible steering in this game. The car just will not turn and feels extremely sluggish. The complete experience is dismal so I may not even try and beat the game... I enjoyed the previous need for speeds, but this one seems to have almost zero depth.
a direct port from console versions, and little more

Summary: Like another reviewer, I too really wanted to like this game... I've been an avid Need for Speed fan for 15 years, and was hopeful that this could bring back the quality that's been lacking in the series for a bit. The reviews for the PS3 version came out first, and showed this game to be excellent.
Summary: Need for Speed is the only game (or family of games) that I've played for almost ten years. I still recall fondly the first version that came out on the original Playstation. It was such a technical and entertaining breakthrough back then.
Summary: when it comes to games, I Only play Need For Speed. I got hooked on them back in the days when the 1st one had the R&T add on them. Anyways, what I'm trying to say is that I play absolutely nothing else.
Summary: I've been an avid fan of the Need for Speed series since the beginning. When I saw this bundle being released, I was excited... finally, a chance to play the old classics like NFS II again (as my old version of NFS II didn't seem to run well under a modern operating system).
Summary: I must say that I'm quite disappointed by this game. I've been a fan of the series. However, since I switched to Win2K (and therefore could not run the previous NFS versions) I was eager to get my hands on this new NFS HP 2 and now that I have I can honestly say that I would have rather wanted a...
