I loved this game for the most part. The game play and design is outstanding. My only complaints with the game is that it doesn't show off the capabilities of the PS3 (Graphics), and the game is rather short compared to most racing games out there. I beat the whole game 100% in about 25 Hours of play, and that is 2 modes, all cars earned, and I even did all the online challenges. If you are a NFS fan, or Tuner fan you will be sure to like this game.
Remember NFSP:Underground and how revolutionary and cool it was...yeah they pretty much have been making the same game over and over just changing the titles around. Save your time and don't bother getting this unless racing games are your "fancy" and with that said it is still a solid racing game with hours of gameplay if thats all you want to hear.
