your main opponent in the game isnt the other racers it it the game itself. dont ride off the road more than 3 inches because you die. there is content out of the car but it is dumb and meaningless. dont worry about not having time to play it though, story mode lasts about 2 hours. good thing you didnt buy it, thats about 30 bucks an hour! pass this one up or use it for a coaster.

By graphic and storyline not that bad but the problem is, is that i thought it was gonna be like most wanted or nfs underground. But its not even close. What ever and you cant even customize your cars in story mode. They just make you pick a car
I really wanted to like this game, but the first thing that really turned me off was the agonizingly long loading screens. Not only are they long, there's no music, no trivia, nothing but staring at the map for a minute or more. I'm aware that loading the game to my hard drive would increase the loading speed, but that would mean that I finish the game in 3 hours instead of 5. Leading to the next issue, the game is insanely linear with little room for much creative game play (freeroam, car details/upgrades, etc). I actually played NFS: Most Wanted to warm up for The Run and Most Wanted has more replay value by far! The police aspect of the game makes little sense as passing a checkpoint is enough to escape their chase. May be worth renting to see what NFS did for a new spin, but like most other players said, it just isnt what I love Need for Speed for.
