Summary: Nothing really special about this game, and the controls handles slow almost like the game deliberately holds you back to make it more interesting the higher the levels you reach the worse the cars handling becomes almost to the point that you want to quit because you know your not that bad.
Summary: One of the last "classic" Need For Speed games (Pre-Autolog) and at least as good as Underground but a bit too Hollywood. It tried to cash in on the "Fast and Furious" craze and did a pale imitation of the storyline.
Summary: It's a good addition to the NFS collection if you're a fan, I liked the actual actors used, even if the scting was poor, the cars were good, however prices were way unrealistic (you get a $700,000 discount off the Veyron but overpay by atleast $100,000 for the Shelby GT500).
Summary: I have only played through the first 10 or so races, so view my response as such. Firstly, the wait times in this game kill me. I spend more time loading than I spend driving. At least it feels that way. Same thing within the maps too and my HD 4870 is supposed to be reasonably high end.
Summary: Although a lot of people felt Undercover isn't as good as Most Wanted, I felt that Undercover is more of the same, but with some aspects of Most Wanted removed/dumbed down to help move the story along. However, there are quite a few bugs with Undercover.
Summary: This is a hard game for a man over 50 to beat. I don't like a game I can't win. Why don't these race games offer a beginner level? I hate that the cops will always bust you just when you're driving around. What a pain. But the graphics are good and the rest of the game play isn't bad.
Summary: - sometimes, objects like concrete walls and fences THAT YOU CANNOT BREAK are not visible on the road but you will crash on them anyway - While you are playing, especially when you get a really fast car, the scene is not drawn fast enough (even with a super fast computer or lowering game quality to...
Pros: The good things: - The in game music is IMHO really good. That's just me. - Cars are really well drawn, all details really well done. - The Tri City is kind of cool, giving you a SoCal city kind of feeling. - The open space is not so open, you can quickly get a hold of where you are and where to ...
Cons: The bad things: - the game is ARCADE, yes, you got me: ARCADE. The car are seldom totaled, (besides in a highway battle) otherwise you can do the craziest moves on your wheels and you're still going full speed ahead! - cop cars, as well as other cars, sometimes drop on the street from the sky!!! ...
