Summary: My son and I have been playing video games together since he was an infant and used to sit on my lap behind the steering wheel to beep the horn or push various buttons while I raced. We had a lot of fun playing Midnight Club and Need for Speed. Honest to God, once when he was about 3 and we were racing, he said, "Mom, do you have a pair of scissors?" I said, "Huh?!" Then he chortled and said, "Because I'm going to cut you off!" and he did!!!
Summary: If you like the old Burnout series then you might like this (personally not a fan of Criterion Games) and their finger prints are all over this game as they were bought up by EA when they went under. The game can be a lot of fun at times and then excrutiatenly difficult at others.You have to drive absolutely balls out and make no mistakes as you advance,oh and did I mention the game is filled with bugs(glitches) that ALWAYS error on the side game.
Summary: cant be played with the wii remote had to use a gc controller. the graphics were sub par and the gameplay wasnt there, you do the same races on different difficulties on the same courses. when you race as the cops it wasnt fun its just you not you working with computers to take down a car. its you against several cars admist a bunch of fakes. this one was a miss other nfs are awesome just not this one.
Summary: This game is terrible. I am disappointed in NFS for diverting from their glory days when you could go in, and Build a car from the tires up with a ton of modifications. There is absolutely no modification or money exchanges involved in this game whatsoever. You go through and unlock cars, which are race specific with each race using a certain "series" of cars. Say goodbye to the days where a honda civic could keep up with a real sports car.
Farmville with Wheels?! Cmon EA! Could've Been Better!

Summary: Need For Speed isn't exactly known to be a racing simulator like Forza or Gran Turismo. But still...I expected more from this game. I mean small things like local 2 player mode is gone, an easy to navigate main screen is unheard of, and Autolog is another word for Facebook. Seriously, I don't want to post pictures and comments on people's walls when I play a video game. I'll do that when I'm on FB. Autolog has been the most annoying feature in recent video games.
Summary: Bought it on ebay (thankfully for less than retail) Got it, but gave up on it after 30min. Mainly due to the controls of the game. The first time through you have to sit through these long into tutorials that you cannot skip, and then once you get driving the dynamics are so terrible. That all the cars feel the same, w/ you sliding all over the place like you're driving on black ice or something the whole time.
Summary: It's Burnout Paradise with better graphics, sound and cops added into the mix. The car crashes are better in Burnout Paradise than in Hot Pursuit. The driving isn't that exciting by itself which makes "time trials" type of events feel more like a chore than anything else. Not only are they required to move ahead but there are also a lot of them. The fun factor of this game comes from the races and the criminals/cops chases.
