Being a long time NFS fan I rented this game hoping it would be like the original Most Wanted Title. Even with its cheesy story the original it is still the best. This however is the most ridiculous peace of garbage to pass as a NFS title since ProStreet. The crash scene alone in this game make you want to break the disk. The lack of customization and the fact that you have no garage to store your cars drove me to send this game back shortly after beating it. Oh and did I mention that you need an online pass to play this, which makes no sense. This game is among the worst NFS games. I DO NOT RECOMMEND anyone rent this game.

This is a great game! I love the fact that they allow you access to all of the cars at the beginning, as long as you can find them all. The handling can take a little getting used to, but once you do it makes sense and works well. Even though this game hardly resembles it predecessor, it keeps the essence of the game, which makes it fun. The police can get a bit irritating, but when you have over 20,000 speed points and have been nursing the pursuit for over 25 minutes you'll know why. Just saying Heat level six STINKS.
Graphics and sound
Handling (actually gives the car weight and momentum)
Police chases (Has the ability to get you going at times)
The cars are hidden well throughout the city.
Damage (amazingly realistic for a game)
variety of things to do
City to small
lack of a story
lack of speedbreakers in pursuits
AI seems to be kind of sporadic.(drives well for a bit then runs into a wall or never makes a mistake)
police chase (can also be over in a hurry leaving you wanting more)
I have seen reviews for this game stating that it is a horrible game, as I have also seen reviews stating its great. I guess it's up to you and your preference: Simulation or Arcade. This game definitely falls under arcade and in my opinion a very good arcade game at that. I would absolutely recommend this game to anybody. But they should rent it first. This game will not be for everybody. If you hate open - world arcade style games stay away, but if you love them I highly recommend it.
