Simply put, this game is extremely hard. I have never rented a racing game I have sucked at until I rented this game. I can barely beat the first few races - it's like the game is default set on "hard", not to mention, you barely get any money from winning, when you seldomly do win a race - it makes it impossible to upgrade or purchase a new car. even with a fully upgraded "level 1" car (i had the 240sx) you can't win. getting the EMP makes you think it will help, but it doesn't - and it seems 90% of the time when you use the "nitrous" that you get from drafting, you crash instantly - or what's even better, you manage to get into first place, and then theres cars everywhere and you crash because there is no way to avoid it.
this game is horrible. extremely too hard. any need for speed blows this away.

well first off the races are way too long and there is just way too much traffic you can never finish a race without crashing. or right when your about to win a race a car goes right in front of you and you lose. like i did a pink slip wager and i only had a car and a motorcycle and i raced against him with the car then lost it then all i had was the really hard to control motorcycle and you hit every freaking car and you cant win so i had to start the game all over. and that blows. so if your looking for a fun game this isnt it its too frustrating
