Good

For now, forget the online multiplayer!

Many people are having problems getting in the races from the so-called lobby. The countdown timer keeps resetting/trying to sync and then the race starts WITHOUT you. I tried for 3 hours last night trying to get in ONE race to no avail. Black Rock Studios has promised a patch "within days" but don't hold your breath. I was able to get in 3 consecutive races before the game froze up on me SEVERAL times, prompting a hard reboot (hold the power button on the PS3 to turn it off). At this rate, I'll get a form 1 rating around the year 2017. The offline career mode is quite frustrating IMO (see Beat the Team challenges & good luck with that!) and the AI rubber-banding is one of the worst I've seen.

The racing & car handling is actually FUN but many of the Detonator races require retry after retry and in my case, to no avail.

I also had problems getting 1st in the Survival & Airstrike modes, but maybe that's just me. I don't see getting the Platinum for this game.

Overall frame rate was OK to good and the sound effects were decent. This is no Burnout or NFS by any stretch of the imagination but it's a decent rental.

I liked the game alot but I wish you could free roam and blow the city up without racing but a pretty good game overall. Though there is no damage on your car untill you wreck unlike burnout paridise, which is a great game, I recomend you rent this game before you buy because you may not like it.

I would give this game an 8.5, but I had to round up to 9.

Pros: Great graphics, fun, lots of explosions, cool cars, and totally wack (lol) tracks.

Cons: AI can be idiots, and all endings end the same way (In 2nd and you use a powerplay to kill him and speed foward. Also, only OK online
