This game is yet another great addition tot he need for speed series. The game has all the great features of a really fun driving game. One the positive side of things you can customize your vehicles however you want and they look really really awesome. The xbox version is a bit more basic than the xbox 360 version as far as graphics go, but other than that it is all the same great game. The sounds are very realistic as well. On the negative side the game is fast but when you are being chased by the police they will setup road blocks. When you smash your way through the blockade your car remains in great condition, no matter how fast or how hard you hit the other cars. However the police cars look as if they were left in the ghetto for a night. This is not to discredit the makers of the game because the roadblocks, helicopters, and police SUV's that ram straight into you is a ton of fun. All in all I rate this game an 8 out of 10.
Just like any other Need For Speed, except for it's mediocre storyline and the smokin movies at the beginning.
Gameplay gets boring after some 5-10 hours of gameplay. Graphics in comparison to the other NFS's is pretty much the same(not counting the movies). Cop AI is actually quite good, and the nitro & slowmo buttons will be your savior when breaking thru cop road blocks to knock down a tower or blow up a gas station to get the cops off you.
