Horrible

Shockingly Awful

I have been a need for speed fan all my life. But this is by far the worst NFS game I've ever played. The only thing it has going for it are the graphics. That's it! The single player missions are confusing and often impossible. And the one on one races against online players is a joke! Nuf said.

To start this game off; If you take the NFS most wanted the creative cars the free play and customization and throw those in the trash, then take Hot pursuit with the brilliant well rounded racing and crashing and throw those away as well you get NFS rivals.

I played it for a few hours right after it arrived in my mailbox. I thought "Oh, cool fast cars and play both sides" till I realized "oh crud" they took all the choppy bad driving experiences from both games and put them in this one. I remember the long chases while outrunning the cops in NFS:MW and finding that perfect hiding spot to lose them. Then the beautiful landscapes and long comfortable chases in NFS:HP; Thats the word I was looking for, Rivals is very choppy and uncomfortable almost as if the roads are to small for the cars or the AI's are bone heads and/or the physics of the game are way-off. Also too unrealistic, so you start off with a super-cop car thats doesn't respond well and has the feel of driving a semi truck around some of those turns only going 70 mph. Then you're some no name racer with a brand new ferrari. People like leveling up and car progression, some even like racing that Cobalt SS through the whole game.

This game could have been better if the basically added playable cops to Most Wanted; this would have performed much better and would have received a much better score and GF rating.

Thanks for reading, I'm going to play some Most Wanted right now.

I rented it and did all the updates and installed the game on to my XBOX 360 and it ran just fine the graphics are amazing. The XBOX 360 I have is the Star Wars R2-D2 edition which came with a 320GB HDD so I have about 257GB free. I had no problems with this game at all. with the other comments before I don't know what size hdd they have but the game worked good for me
