Good

Not as good as the first

There seems to be lots of whining on how this game is too hard by many people in here. Maybe its not the game that is too hard but your weak driving skills. I didn't find the game too hard at all. I found it rather boring to be honest and at times easy.

The whole driving around and finding random cars was boring. There was no incentive to do go find another car. Once you found like the Porshe and then the Lambo you could get through the first 2 Most Wanted Cars and then just take theirs and upgrade them to beat everyone else. Heck if you find the Nissan GTR you could beat everyone after its upgraded.

Plus the way that you have to upgrade is kinda weak as well. You have to race to upgrade the car. Which takes away from the first most wanted where you had to be smart about how you spend your money and on what parts.

Then there is the part where there is ZERO story line. Not sure if the budget just didn't allow for it or EA (which is down the street from me) just got really lazy. I am going to yell at my buddy later (he works there). EA needs to step up their game on the NEED FOR SPEED Franchise before they lose loyal fans like myself. The last few have been sub par for sure.

Don't even get me started on the redundant crash simulation like Paradise. SO ANNOYING.

You can't drive all the cars and part of the map is locked.
How do you unlock them? You gotta pay. Not with the in-game money you earn, your real money. Its cool to have expansion packs that add more to your game after you bought it. Just don't put it EVERYWHERE IN THE ACTUAL GAME. While exploring the open world you will run into a part of the highway that appears to be locked. You want to play this part of the map? 25 bucks please. If this is downloadable content, why can I drive to it? I pause the game and it's on my map like its part of the city? Like they designed the game this way, like a virtual in-game toll road. It is bad enough this is a rental and I gotta pay the 10 dollar online pass to play online.

See a black 1970 Dodge Charger (looks a lot like the one from Fast and Furious) hiding in a construction site? Pull up next to it like you do any of the other cars and hit the button to drive it. What happens? You go to the Playstation store to shell out 10 bucks to get the movie car pack. If you want to add to your game, great, keep it in the store, put it on a loading screen, put it on the pause menu, BUT DONT PUT IT ON MY MAP. Every time I am driving and I see a car hiding while I am exploring the open world I gotta check it out. I hate pulling up to it to learn I need to pay to play. I don't want to pay any more money to play this game. For every locked car pack vehicle you discover, it puts an icon on your mini-map forever reminding you that you can't drive this unless you pay.

This kinda of stuff takes away from getting immersed into the game. It is distracting like watching a movie with commercials as part of the story. This is like watching James Bond in the middle of a car chase making a pit stop to Subway to get a meatball sub. Before he bites down he looks right into he camera and says "EAT FRESH".
