I dont often write reviews for games, and indeed most games seem to be style over substance lately. However, NFSS is brilliant.
I thought the best racing game on the PS3 (albeit a bit too hard) was GRID by a country mile, but this beats it for sheer exhileration and user friendly game play. Yes, you still crash and take damage etc, but unlike GRID, the game doesnt come to a shattering halt when you crash unless you want it to, as the damage settings are variable to taste.
My least favourite view in driving games is from the drivers seat, but on this game it is awesome - the dashboard etc blurring as you get faster, and the middle distance coming into focus to hammer home the speed you are travelling at - its a nice touch and very effective. Its a great feeling accelerating around a corner and almost feeling your back end sliding out before picking up speed again.
Its an easy game to pick up play, and the difficulty curve is set just right as it gets harder as you level up and open up new races and Tiers.
I took a while to buy this game having thought it to be another mediocre racer, but I would recommend this game to anyone, and at 18 pounds it is a bargain!
