I've played every Need For Speed in existence, so naturaly I thought because of the title's previous history I would check this one out.
The makers of need for speed at EA Have forgotten how to make a racing game. Every game after NFS Most wanted were decent. This however is the worst Need for speed game yet. I picked it up hoping to play some sort of career mode, which I now know is non-existent in the game. I played 5 races and realized they all felt the same.
Only good thing I can find with this game is that The cars and the tracks are beautiful and well done.
This game would be good for you if you had a 3 year old son who loves the idea of a cop chase. I think that was EA's target market
EA has completely removed the customization of cars. You can't even buy your cars. They get unlocked through the game and you can magically use them. EA has alot of work to do if they want NFS to remain a strong title in racing. I'm sure I speak for most NFS fans when I say, "This game is depressing." and "What happened to the days of NFS Underground?"

While the thought of the game ws very cool and exciting playing it was not. The game is fun for about an hour after that you will probably be done with it. And Just like EA if you want play online you have to pay which I think is rediculous and a reason I wont ever purchase a game like this. Renting was more then enough, You earn cars and then have to pick only select cars for each course. There is no upgrade system the fun of it wears out very quickly.

What a waste of a rental, I was very excited to rent this game because of how much fun I had playing the old PS2 version with my girlfriend, Now that I have an 8yr old son that loves racing games I find out that the only way we can play together is if I buy another PS3 and get another copy of the game since theres no splitscreen 2 player mode and the ONLY way you can play with friends is online. What a stupid move to make ANY racing game like that and an even worse move to make a cops and robbers type game like that.
