Summary: I skipped this one a while back and played the run which was okay. I bought this used and played for all of 3 hours before returning it back to the store. The gameplay was horrible. No plot to the races you can't customize cars, and there is no reverse in a driving game?!? You might as well forget about the free roam because it is garbage. level up get a car, level up again get another car but all the cars handle the same! Save yourself time just skip this one!!!
Summary: I have been hooked on Need for Speed ever since Underground, so I was thrilled that it was getting back to the more arcade type racer (Shift and Pro-Street felt closer to Forrza or GT to me). What I found though was nothing more than a Burnout game with the NFS name slapped on the box. If I wanted to play Burnout, I would have bought Burnout.
Summary: The graphics, sound, gameplay are good, but there isn't a split screen multiplayer mode. You can only play online in a multiplayer mode. I thought this game was going back to the Hot Pursuit 2 days when I first heard about it, so I was excited to play locally with friends and possibly have the split screen work within the online racing. Not a chance.
Summary: i pre-ordered this game thinking its gunna be one of the best racing games ever. it was good after 3 days of playin it. when you take a look at your map to find where the cops is behind you, a prius comes out of nowhere and you rear end it ending in a crash. 4 crashes your done.the cars are hard to control. the beggining cut sceans when you press skip can still be as long as when you dont skip. take my warning dont buy it get grand turismo 5 instead.
Summary: After so many terrible games by EA like Undercover and Pro Street, I was hoping Criterion Games would ignore all the flawed aspects in those two games and make something similar to the first few NFS games back in the late 90s, but boy, was I wrong. This game is too similar to Burnout, and it is certainly NOT a good thing: if you're a cop you have to relentlessly smash a racer's car to pieces to "bust" him, and if you hit a wall when driving too fast as either a cop or...
