Should have stopped at NFS: Most Wanted

The game concept I think was a good Idea but the executions sucked. It felt like you spent more time loading than racing. The new rewind feature was a cool idea, except this was so much better executed in Forza 4. The game would rewind automatically even if you got off the track just a little or maybe a jump was a little too high. It would have been great if you could just race for as long as you want to, seeing as how it was supposed to be a country wide race. I honestly thank god for Gamefly cuz this would have been a waste of $60 bucks

The game was fun but had a few drawabacks that I have listed below.

Short, the run time for the single player race only took just over 2 hours.

The graphics are probably the worst I have seen on a NFS game in quite some time.

The load times were horrible.

I was always buying new games at retail price and me and my 10yr old son would go through the game in a few days..this was one of those games graphics were tight the real roads were cool cars were hot but no customization no multiplayer split screen no replays and the story mode was really short beat it in about 8 or 9 hours..online is always rockin but try again EA couldve been alot better..and thank you Gamefly for helping me save a bundle.
