Reading some of the reviews before i was thinking this game was going to be a let down, but i loved it and is the best racing game i have played since the gran turismo series. The racing is very realistic, and has greta graphics. However the game doesn't follow the classic nfs underground style of racing, it's completely different, this game is a lot more realistic and i found it a lot more challenging to the fact you can select what driving aids you have on etc etc really makes the game easier/harder. If you like realistic racing, then this is a good buy. Although i will say it lacks replayability and gets a bit repeptitive towards the end. Although the free roam mode was taken away in this series with was a huge disappointment to me as you have no choice but to race, so that was a bit disappionting but still a good game.
One again the need for speed boffin's are making us actually use driving skill to get us round these tracks but really, thats not what i want at all. If i wanted that i'd go for GT5 or for a little more adventure, CM:Dirt. Stick to what your good at, making fun Fast and Furious wannabee video games. Sounds like i insult but thats what we all loved!
I got this game thinking it was gonna be like all the other nfs games but it wasnt it was totally different. IN AN AMAZING WAY! when i turned it on i was expecting to start off in the streetswith a rubbish car and have to take ages searching for races. But i was pleasently surprised when i was playing it as if it was a grnd trsmo game, but with one extra feature you can costamize your car to the max! and if its one thing i want in car games its to costamize good cars with sick body kits and sweet engines and vinals and paind jobs and window tints and finaly...wheel rims, and alot more. The reason why i gave this game a 4 and not a 5 is because it does lack the excitement of police chases and well free roam mode, but the good thing is that these memorys are replaced with new and better ones. I seriously recomend this game. =]
By far my worst game on PS3, don't waste your money on this game. Wait till Gran Turismo 5 comes out, that looks superb! Major problems, with this game: 1. Online lags, you cannot get into a game, without lag. 2. The story is terrible.......Way different from any other NFS game and well, it didn't work. DON'T GET THIS GAME!
Yes, it is sponsored racing & yes it is a bit less fun than carbon & most wanted.
But you can't honestly sit there and say you buy need for speed for racing.
The whole idea of the game is to customize the cars, and in this game the sky's the limit!
Its a good game, just a shame about the sponsors.
