game would be great if not for the extremely long loading screens and the drifting element made to complex just could not get the hang of it

i dont know what to say id rather play most wanted again than to even install this on my ps system. its like what were these guys thinking check it youve got a ton of cars but only a few you can use, the races start instantly no time to start it urself, cannot modify your cars, cant win pinkslips, cant choose your races, the only way to switch your car from a lame car to an even lamer car is by driving in the middle of the race and goin to a gas station which btw when you go in everybody else passes you and youre all the way to the last, then if you choose a too lame car then you definitely cant win, cant tune up your ride, honestly i figured out what happened the guys did a lot of work on the graphics and sound so they had to take away somthing and that was the real essence of need for speed, so ppl dont waste your time its just like pro street, they drop you in a race and thats it. love gamefly saved me a bunch else i wouldve bought it and probably couldnt sleep for a month just thinking how let down i was.

I sent this one back the same day I got it mostly due to the bad taste the first few missions left me with. I found the driving controls to be clunky and unresponsive, which is a huge problem for a game that's all about driving. The story line is pretty weak but I was willing to overlook that as long as the gameplay was fun. It's not. I'd much rather try one of the many alternatives to this game because even a game like GTA, where driving is secondary, is more fun to drive cars in.
