Summary: This game was a load of fun to play. There is a whole city for you to explore, and tons of things to do. The cars all sound different and handle different. There is a significant increase in handling, and speed when you upgrade your car. The only drawback is that you have no control of what your car looks like when you take it to the shop.
Summary: This game is awesome! I don't even play the real game. I just play the kind where you ride around and the cops chase you. But the game is a racing game but you don't have to play it that way. I don't and I can still play it for hours and have fun. Also the graphics are awesome! It isn't particularly intuitve just average, and sound effects are nothing special. We have had this game for years and we are still finding new places to explore in the extensive area.
