Ok. I'm an old school gamer from way back and I must say, this is what I always wanted in a need for speed game. I suffered through the last 4 or 5 NFS games just because I love driving, only to be disappointed every time. I understand the last few games were horrible, but this game is different. It's very fast and challenging. Youll find your hands shaking after intense races or online battles. I remember playing Undercover and thinking,"man, it would be cool if we could be cops and take each other out". Well, now we can. I think the guys at Criterion did an awesome job bringing the series back to life. There are a few things I thought they could have done to make the game perfect though. Like, free roam cop chases, an actual leaderboard, the ability to turn off the cut-away shots during races, and they coulda let us customize our cars al little bit. If they would have included these things, this game would be one of the best racing games in years. The autolog is fun too. It's a "Facebook" type page that keeps up with all your friends laptimes. When you log on everyday, it reminds you automaticly of how many friends beat you since you played, and by how much. It also lets you challenge your friends to beat your times and you can talk smack. It's very fun and very fast and looks lovely on a nice big HD tv blasting at 60 fps. The ability to listen to the playlists I have saved on my PS3, through the audio settings in game was nice too. The music on most driving games makes me sick, so this was nice. I've seen this game getting a bad rap in forums because it's challenging... I like a good challenge.
I am gonna give my view point on this game, first off I have been a fan
of need for speed for many years & for the most part their has been a good number of games put out by need for speed.
this game has awsome graphics & the story line is pretty good.
be your own judge of this game , everyone has their own views on video games.
It would have been a better video game with split screen, maybe the next version will have it.
over all I like the game.
Rent the game first before you go out & spend your money on this game.
I believe ps3 games are way over priced & I always wait for the used version to come out , you save a lot of money & it doesnt take that long before the price is dropped.
This game is just pure awesomeness, the best Need for Speed I've ever played. Going overdrive, out smarting the police, taking down the other speedsters and even playing as a police officer just makes it even more cool. I've been playing Need for Speed ever since the 1st one but this latest one is just awesome
