Horrible

  • Summary: As the NFS Series has done well and bad, for the right price I figured I would give this game a try. As it was NOT done by Criterion like Most Wanted and Hot Pursuit, this game lacks.

  • Summary: very fun game action packed just way too short took me about 4 hours 30 minutes to complete the whole game. dont get me wrong its a great game just way too short and also not worth $60.00. once the game is beaten there is no free roam mode which would be cool to drive from san fransisco to new york without the worries of cops or other racers.

Not Even a Rental

  • Summary: I have been a need for speed fan since the series started. Ive played every entry in the long standing racer and as it stands, the runs is in last place. My first issue with this game? The control. Not the control scheme, thats fine, its how the cars handle. There like tanks! I own a 1998 Durango that tirns corners better than most of the purpose built RACING MACHINES! Speaking of racing machines, why can mob suvs loaded with ticked off gunmen out race my Audi R8?

This is NOT a must have game

metallmann, Bestbuy
18 January 2012
  • Summary: Load time between races feels as long as the race itself; realism is almost cartoonish; not as many cars to choose from as past games; minimal...
  • Pros: Graphics; You never race the same route twice
  • Cons: Everything else

not worth it

  • Summary: it would be better if it didnt have online codes, because that means you cant rent it and play online, it gets a 4, maybe a 5 if it didnt have online codes, and it gets a 5 for people who can rent it that dont have xbox live and just have people smash into you and get fustrated

I Love NFS But, This Is Weak, Here Is Why

JestoNsane4u , GameStop

  • Summary: Going to keep it short: long long load screens, car/multiplayer/traffic glitches, controls, did i mention long load screens? I love NFS but, they failed on this one. I read a review somewhere that they said this was supposed to be a mix of nfs shift and nfs most wanted, let me tell you, go play the demo, THAT'S AS GOOD AS IT GETS

Decent Graphics, Short Story

Skysz , GameStop
29 November 2011
  • Summary: I would not recommend this game to my fellow gamers, due fact of it being you can beat the game on the most difficult of settings in roughly 3 1/2 hours. There is no free roam it's just Straight "The Run" No customization and you can only switch cars at the gas station which are about every 9-10 races. No real interactions with the cops in this one.........
