i have played many need for speed games. this one is pretty freaking fun. a little weird how its set up. you cant change your cars till you are actually in a race then you have to pull into a gas station to change cars. thats my only problem with it. online is more balanced and fair than any nfs title i have played. i used the 2 day free pass and had a blast. nothing more fun than ramming someone into a side rail only to hit a car yourself and have to play catch up. the story line is a bit cookie cutter with the guy who needs money so he has to win the race. but all in all a super fun game. if i was more into racing games i would buy this one to play online. great game

I have always enjoyed the NFS games although I have never been a racing fan. The story is not very challenging but has some great cut scenes and good flow. The game provides longevity in it's challenge mode.

Not my favorite NFS but was fun and playing. Worth renting for the story mode alone.

I have been a fan of the NFS series since they first came out on playstation. This one is a really fun racer the concept was really good the bad was all of the loading that it does. I did not install in my HD so that would probabbly cut down on the loading a little bit. The game can get pretty hard if you are used to simulation games like Forza the I just wish there was more camera views you only have 3 views which is ok
