When I first found out about the game I was shocked and hooked to it. When you start playing the game you start on a chase on the highway and then dodging cars and a roadblock then you are at the police hq where you see Maggie Q talking to the sheriff (or someone like that) about what she's doing. I think they should have started the game in a different way but hey there game. the chases are great the cops kept me going for a couple of hours trying to escape a helicopter on a wheelman job. The storyline is good as well it gives you a chance to play both sides as an agent and a gang member. The customization is ok they don't give out much vinils at the start of the game but get farther in the game and you win new vynils. I made it to over 30% of the game and sent it back. Overall the damage and driving is like the last one and will be saying that the series has changed over the years since hot pursuit to underground, from most wanted to carbon and under cover should be on the top 5 list.

this game was pretty good, until i just got to around 60% or so and can't beat anymore races. i'm just tired of retrying and retrying. i've also got what is probably the fastest car in the game, so it's just down to me now :( it's okay though, there are other games to have fun with
this game is a shadow of what it used to be. I have followed this series since its debute on the ps1, and every since nfs carbon it has lost its luster
the most notorious problem i have with this itteration is the fact that the freeroam aspect of the game is completly pointless when all you have to do is press down on the dpad to go to the next race.
another problem i have with this game is that the story lacks a connection to the actual game play. I could careless about the characters in the game. at times the physics in the game seem to be rushed unfinshed. for instance at some points in the story when you fail to complete objectives your car just flips over for no aparent reason.
i think this game was rushed out for the holiday season and should have been delayed for more polishing. this game failed to to carry torch that carbon, and underground 1-3 did!
