Just Another Need for Speed Game

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: 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: I have played this game on two different platforms now (PC and XBOX 360), and on both of those platforms, i would say the game is alright. In the terms of the need for speed series, i think it fits well, but does nothing to set itself apart from the rest of the NFS canon.
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.
