Really Bad

Pause

Not 2-players, Online multi-player only.
There is no Main Menu, throws you into the game stops you midgame for tutorial for the first hour of gameplay.
Also you can't pause the game, so Home is your only pause.

Very Good

Very good but not for long

This game is insanely fun. That said he fun is not long lasting. Everything is as fun as it should be with a nfs game but nothing takes itself to seriously. The cars all feel fun and the mechanics are fun while things are new but once you've done it all there's not much reason to hang around. Also, the crashes are crazy easy to get into and nothing feels super well balanced. Open stretches of highway make it impossible for cops to catch up as racers just hit turbo and constant repair shops and the winding roads make it impossible to get away from cops or find a place to repair half the time. It's not about skill it's about location. I say these criticisms only after having hours of fun. Also, the always online sucks. I wish developers would stop assuming all gamers are teenagers who can sit in front of a tv all day. Some of us are married with children and being able to pause or finish a quick game is a lot easier than being stuck in a high stakes always on world where you are severely punished for needing to step away for a moment.

Graphics are sick but whos idea was it to not allow the pause button to do anything but bring up the map. I finished all objectives and was trying to set my new waypoint, got side swiped by a fellow cop car and had to start over again. Other cop cars dont help during the pursuit just get in the way . So hopefully you dont have to use the bathroom, answer your door or phone or have your wife stare at you in disbelief when you tell her you cant pause the game.....
