i played the previous versions, and i never liked the kudos system. What more difficuilt is that you have the platium, gold, silver, bornze metal difficulty. It's just to many for me. I think you should have a Easy, normal, and Hard settings, that's it.
My opinion is that Need for Speed is better because you can make modifications on your vechiles (paints, engines), and the police chases are just fun.
This one of the games from gameflyt that was so good i had to keep it.it looks great! the online play is better(new update) the speedpack made it even better as of 4/15..do not even rent just buy it off this website.
