From the moment I got this game, I could do nothing but compare it to GTA, and each aspect that was different I would start to get a bit upset about. But that was a gigantic mistake. Anyone thinking this is based on GTA and therefore it should play like GTA should get that out of there head before they start it up.
The whole game is groundbreaking stuff. There was a lot of talk about the Motionscan technology but, in my opinion, this isn't the most important factor in it. The storyline is designed to keep you interested from the start and each mission keeps you on your toes.
The only thing keeping this from getting the 5th star from me is the fact you seem to be forced to move from mission to mission. Maybe I'm being fussy, but the side missions also annoy me from time-to-time. As a cop I feel the need to shoot people in the leg or hands, yet this still puts them in a bodybag. Even GTA allowed people to live through a couple of rounds in the leg. There I go again with the GTA comparison, but I think this one was justified.

This game is an absolute cracker. The car selection, tracks, events, licences, the fascinating graphics and scenery are (at times) unbeatable.
I'm not normally a big fan of racing games and have not played any other titles since the original GT all those years ago, but gave this one a try purely because i fancied a change. I am so glad I did. Both A-spec and B-spec provide different aspects which break up the play and deliver separate challenges.
The only downfall to this game is the poor AI as other reviewers have mentioned. There is nothing more annoying than being spun out at the last bend just because the AI cannot stray from the racing line.
Apart from this, I am more than happy I risked my last few pounds for the month on this game, especially as the regular updates continue to provide extra challenges.
