I hate to give such a low rating but I'm sorry if you are putting out a game these days they should have cockpit view. All the racing games I have right now have this view and I would not purchase one now without it. I guess I should have checked to see if this game supported in car view but now I know.

I was extremely excited to play NFS: Rivals when I signed up for my Gamefly subscription; especially since NFS: Hot Pursuit on the X360 is one of my all time favorites. After installing the game and drooling over the visuals, I began to notice several huge problems with the game. I almost immediately noticed there was next to no tutorial as far as gameplay mechanics and controls are concerned. Also there are several Kinect commands that can trigger entirely accidentally that will make your camera go crazy in the middle of a race which usually causes you to wreck. My biggest problem, however is the game's (All Drive?) online feature that has you in a giant sandbox against other drivers. While the feature is fun it has several problems with it. The biggest which I ran into more than twice is the game's inability to save your user progress while your not in an online game or if you get disconnected while in an online game and continue to play. I lost hours of gameplay twice when this happened to me. Also there are several exploits the racers can take advantage of online when being pursued that makes them almost impossible to catch. They can literally drive in circles around a repair shop regaining their power ups and health every loop making them impossible to catch. I gave this game a 6 because of its numerous issues that still aren't fixed even though I rented the game almost a year after its release. I would likely five it an 8 or 9 if the gameplay was smooth and consistent.
