Could be great, dissapointed us in the end

Summary: I bought this for a child with special needs. He needs some help reaching the end of this, but unlike xbox or ps4, there are no cheats to get you by one or two impossible points which with a kid with autism is a bad thing. I will never buy another EA product for Wii again, and after the absolute horror show Battlefield 4 was in that whole beta stage (first year of product release followed by investor lawsuit), it is doubtful I will buy anything from them for PC either.
Not worth... very silly for the kids more than 7years old

Summary: It's not as good as I thought.. It's very much silly.. though you can not expect anything more from wii.. it suppose to be for kids.. but kids also laughed after playing once.. If you are looking for the kids of more than 7years.., definitely its not game to go for...
Summary: I had a need to speed this product back to its sender because it was NOTHING like the advertisements showed. All the advertisements were of the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game, the cool versions. This version is completely different from those. It has no online play (which is one of the main reasons i bought it) and the helicopter police chase/ spike strip/ EMP features are no where to be found. I returned this the same day it came in the mail, Christmas Day.
Summary: When I had ordered this game, i was actually expecting the version of the game that was made for the Xbox 360. So after waiting several days for the game to arrive, I was much dissapointed when this game, supposedly the same except for the wii, was a bad-graphics, mario-kart style racing game where you go (fast), collect items and use them against oponents, do not have to worry about cops or wrecking your car, and you are actually racing in a completely different setting...
Summary: After only having the game a couple of hours, one thing stands out. The graphics! Both visual effects as well as audio. They look and sound like an after-thought. After watching the clips on the web, I am sorely disapointed. Should keep my 13 year old entertained, but, he is not happy with the F/X either. Update. "Driving" the cars is not as smooth as in previous versions. Checking prices at a game store for trade-in value even after just a few days of owning the game.
Summary: Bought this as a Christmas gift for my son, since he has enjoyed the NFS series since Underground for Gamecube (and me too). The graphics do not look anything like the trailer produced to promote the game. It's a huge disappointment! Another reviewer used the phrase "need for greed", and I have to agree. It has the appearance of an old arcade racing game from the 70s. NFS Carbon for Wii is a much better game visually.
Summary: This game was definitely not worth $50. Maybe it's OK as a budget game.. The graphics on the videos/trailers look NOTHING like the game. I used a classic controller; the controls were average-nothing great. The graphics are poor.I played Hot Pursuit mode & the cops were nowhere near me. It seems too "dumbed down" for adults.
Summary: It looks like they spend 99% of there time to develop a nice youtube trailer. But forgot about the game itself. Even the previous version of NFS is much better in game-play and graphics. Don't buy this game!!
