Summary: Love how it doesn't take a beefy PC to play. But there isn't enough game play. It's fun but for someone who plays nfs all the time... Beat the game in 2 days the second time I went through. There's 12 episodes (stages), each with 5-6 races in them.
Summary: I had Jak X: Combat Racing for the PS2 and was looking for something similar on PS3 (beside Twisted Metal). Split/Second is a fun racing game that uses powerups to trigger explosions or other events that can slow down or remove your opponents. As far as I can tell, though, there are only two ways to obtain the powerups - drifting through curves or drafting (tailgating). Like somebody else said here, drifting slows you down, so the better strategy seems to be drafting.
Summary: The game is released somewhere between 2010 and 2011 and it's still going quite strong with good graphics, smooth gameplay, and alive servers (in 2013). Pros: 1) Vertical or horizontal split screen offline mode is available, but you'll need a big screen (at least 58 inches) to enjoy the experience; and of course, another player. 2) The sense of speed and crashes with even the low budget cars is satisfying. This ain't formula one, and I am glad it's not.
Summary: Like the title says, fun and fast paced. This game takes a lot of concentration to see what's going on in front of you. Pay attention, or you'll crash yourself. Good entertaining game for all ages.
Summary: I just got to the half way point in the game and I am flabbergasted! This is what I was expecting when I bought Burnout Paradise.... Pros 1. Great Handle 2. Great Graphics 3. Challenging but impossible Cons 1. Redundant levels - This is the only bad thing I can say about this game... I'm halfway through the game and it seems like you just play the same level over and over again. It does have different shortcuts, and blow ups. 2. only 2 player spit screen...
