Summary: First up if you love the original arcade game Outrun or even the original NFS 1 and 2, this game will bring back fond memories. The variety of scenery are one of the best features of this game as you go from the west coast to the east coast. Everything from snow/ice, deserts, interstate freeways, mountainous hairpins/passes, cityscapes, and farm lands will let you experience them all as you race cannon ball run style. Graphics and art departments are top notch.
Summary: This game may get some poor reviews, but I loved it! I have played a lot of the other games in the Need for Speed franchise, and this was my favorite one even though it has a very linear storyline. The effects and graphics are awesome thanks to DICE's Frostbite 2 engine.
Summary: I wish I could actually give this game a real rating, my husband was so excited to get it, but no matter what I do it wont play on my PC (which is running the standard minimum requirements). I'm running windows 7 on a computer that isn't very old. For someone with a gaming PC or at least a higher quality video card than what comes with most PCs out of the box I'm sure it would work, but I don't recommend it for anyone using a more basic computer.
Summary: This is NOT a racing simulator or a movie. Having said that, don't expect and complain about the physics, story line, etc. If you do, you'll be angry and hate it. Trust me, I did. Once you lower your expectations, you'll actually enjoy it for what it is, a fun arcade racing game with awesome audio/visuals. You will never find the perfect anything in life, just enjoy what it is. Here's the entire game put together in a fluent, non instructional movie. you be the judge.
Summary: I never downloaded the game and Amazon was going to give me a credit which they have not. I ordered and reveived the hard copy instead. My internet download speed is so slow it was going to take 14 hours to load. A customer support member said he would credit my account which never happened. Therefore one half star for the program and one half star for Amazon.
