This game is ok and I honestly did not find anything "earth-shattering" when compared to all the other great racing games out there. The story mode is ok and worth the rental.
But to play on-line you have to "PAY"!!?? What is up with this trend of game developers trying to squeeze money out of us if we want to play the game on-line, that just sucks and I personally won't do it.
Ok, I will go as far as paying a yearly fee to X-box so I can play Halo on line and I try to play as much as possible on the PS3 network which is FREE and motives me to play on it more than X-Box.
But pay a game to play it other than rent or buy it...??? NAH THANKS!!
