If you ever wanted to speed away from the police after commiting a road offence then this is the game for you.
As normal, you start with a lower end car and after a few races you can start to unlock some major metal to get you away from the "fuzz" in a bit more of a hurry.

The looks of the game is stunning (imo) and the sounds will have you on the edge of your seat.
Online gameplay is fun and after you complete the game you will be able to use your custom painted cars to race.

This game is big and will take a while to finish so you do get your moneys worth.

If you played Need for speed underground/ underground 2 then this is a must.

 The definitive NFS, indeed.

This NFS is easily better than NFS Carbon. The police chases can get INTENSE. Invest in a meaty machine to run it so you can really feel the rush - the speed feels FAST. The modding sadly is nowhere near as comprehensive as the 2 NFS Underground titles, and the damage..well, how could you honestly call it "damage" when your car continues to handle exactly the same way after you ram it into a solid wall at over 100mph. But the ever so slight lack of realism really doesn't bother me, I'm loving this game. It's fast, it's furious, it's everything all the others should have been. And the play area is HUGE. Don't miss it.

No doubt the best NFS in the series. Didn't care too much for it on the PS2 but I tired this on the PC and thought it was amazing. Good graphics and ontop of that the cop chases are something you don't get bored of. Great game. Get it.
