Disappointing Racer

This entry in the NFS series is average at best. The attempt of a storyline is a joke. The ads and commercials tries to tempt their viewers with nice cars, sexy babes, and over the top explosive scenes. I completed this game (storyline) in 3 days, playing on and off. If you're an achievement seeker, you can net at least 400+ its easy. Be warned, if you rent this game, you can only get a trial version of their EA online pass. Only people who buy the game will have an online pass included to play multiplayer. This game restricts your car selection . . .there is no car garage where you can easily switch out cars on the fly, you can only change out cars at "gas stations" during a race. Also, I was in 1st place, when I went in these gas stations, I was place last place. The replay function that they have totally kills the speed of the game. If you want to rewind or crash, it takes 5-10 seconds to reload the map/stage. If you are looking to spend some time in a good racer game, I would recommend Forza Motorsport 4. If you want to play an arcade racer, give this game a try but don't expect a solid storyline or anything. It's merely there for fluff.

this game was a very good game. but i personally exspeted a more in depth game, espessialy from need for speed series. it was a dissapointment because i beat it in 3 days, and it wasn't constantly.

When i first heard of it i was sych'd and when i started playing it, i loved it. until i noticed i was going through the stages outrageously speedy-like.

i just hope the next one is much longer...
