i agree that this game fell horribly short.
sure there are tons of races but they all run together with the horrible story not even barely stringing it together. you race, you watch badly scripted live action cut scene. rinse and repeat. not to mention this new "wheel man" thing. it somehow boosts all your cars stats.
bad damage effects and oh yeah...they took out the drift and drag events....the best part. the police chases dont even feel hair raising.
sure it looks amazing but thats all it has running for it. its short, and boring and the cars werent even cool enough to keep me interested.
i'd recomend just skipping this and going back to maybe Forza 2.
EA tried to get back to one of the 2 best in the fanchise (Underground and Wanted). This feels like Wanted in a sense; however it is way to easy to get to a race and easier to win. The vehicles mechanics are great but the lighting textures sometimes makes it hard to see. The cops are dumb and non exisitant. Like "Palm Harbor", FL (Pinellas County). All in all this is way overpriced and you dont get the feel for the "Need For Speed" anymore and although it is better then Pro Street and Carbon; I am not sure if I will get the next one(or will it be lucky 13?).
