Summary: Overall, it's a pretty good game. My current computer isn't quite up to the task of running it smoothly, but I'm going to add graphics to my HTPC to remedy that. The game's physics are certainly unlike any other. Whether or not that's a bad thing is yet to be determined. My first race was absolutely horrid. The throttle has much more to do with efficient racing than in any other game I've played. I'm pleased with my purchase though, great game.
Summary: Great Sound and Graphics. Great in car view. Not a true simulation and not much story line. Basically just go from race to race, buy cars and upgrade them in order to compete at the higher levels. I wasn't impressed with the design feature on customizing the look of your car either. However, I like the gameplay, that is awesome.
Summary: Good game overall. Graphics are very good and the cars react realistically, I wouldnt call it the most realistic racing game though. The game allows people to be too aggressive at times for points, no real life racing allows you to crash other peoples vehicles without penalty. The racing tend to get repetitive at times but there always seems to be something new to unlock. So its a fun game but not the best if your looking for realism.
Summary: Just to make it clear this review is for the PC version. I am guessing that the console versions probably do not have the issues the PC version has. Like: Fun and realistic at the same time. A large variety of cars and tracks. Lots of adjustments to controls. Love the sounds. Dislike: Crashes a lot. I might get 2 or 3 races in then crash. The game also will get stuck while loading up a race.
Summary: Objectively, i think this is a good racing “sim” i say that in
quotation marks because it's dressed up in the need for speed franchise
If you play this game expecting that crazy Need For Speed arcade style fun of
the older games (most wanted, underground, etc) you will be very disappointed,
very very disappointed. If you realise that for some reason EA decided to go the sim route with this
one, and love forza, this game will be right up your alley.
Summary: If you are the type of person who loves his/her racing games then listen up!
This game has only one type of racing and that is track, which can be the most
blood thirsty type of all! This game has some flash cars with awesome
performance, some nasty drivers and some that will leave you int he dust if you
do not have the skill! This is also a game where you really honestly feel like
you are actually behind the wheel with is realistic graphics.
