EA is obviously running out of ideas these days. They've come up with the idea of a wingman that rides beside you in the race and helps you out but it doesn't work good at all. The wingmen get in your way and have stupid voice acting. Also, the drift mode used to be good but it is awful now. I just skip the drift entirely now. In drift mode, the cars just feel all cartooney and don't handle realistically at all. It's still a fun game to play, but don't buy it.
I am glad I saved my money, the races aren't even hard or a challenge except for the drift races which are worthless anyway. The graphics are nice and the mods for the cars are cool, but they should have made it harder to find the pink slip after beating one of the "few" bosses. I thought of picking the same cards, nothing. And the controler functions are ridiculus, they should have left them the way they were from Most Wanted. I won't play this game again. I'll just keep playing my Most Wanted which is a heck of alot better.
