This game is the best Need for Speed yet. They've taken some of the best elements from previous games in the series, improved them, and added new elements. The music is 10x better than on Most Wanted especially, and actually creates a mood when you're racing down a dark, lonely canyon. One thing I have against the game, it seems to go from very easy to difficult after maybe the 5th race. The cop chases are also more difficult, but that just makes you become better at finding shortcuts. Overall, awesome game and I highly recommend it.
