    A lot of people say this is the best ever Need for Speed. I can see what they mean, because it offers a complete customisation package of upgrading, tuning, visuals etc. But what really makes this game not a great one is that it has THE WORST line up of cars, THE WORST ever soundtrack, THE WORST city and THE WORST driving physics. Other than that the vents are pretty good, the difficultyA lot of people say this is the best ever Need for Speed.

Other than that the vents are pretty good, the difficulty is just right and it's of decent length. Personally, I didn't find it fun at all. It's just so boring, so slow, so pointless. Nothing feels exciting, rewarding or exceptionally well-done. What's more, there are some glitches and technical issues, including, for example, the lack of widescreen support. Expand

    Of course this game should get a better rank than the worst 0, BUT compared to for example flatout I cant see what this has to offer. A costly and nice pakage and surface do not create playability. This game dont add anything.

  1. For an arcade game, it's even surprisingly playable with a steering wheel, with near misses causing no small amount of amateurish flinching. If you can't afford to attach largely pointless gadgets to your otherwise moribund vehicle, this is the next best thing. [PC Zone]
  2. Its immense thrills and spills through the open-ended city of Bayview is exhilarating, and the culture that is emerging is created in the game to great effect.

    The world is elaborate, the sense of speed is dizzying, and the customization could cost you a job or a girlfriend. But you'll still have Brooke to keep you company.
