    it is a little repetitive but overall i like the challenge and the customization. wish i could choose what to change though instead of west coast just doing it for you.

    While the game flow is completely different from previous Rush games, the feel of the driving is still there, and still more fun than most racers. Unfortunately, the poorly-marked environment you race through throws so many obstacles at you it's hard to concentrate on the course. The driving from event to event is a bit annoying, as well.

  1. This plot is hollow, and the missions you have to carry out in reclaiming your cars are lame. The graphics during the cinematic portion of the story mode look like something out of "Claymation."
  2. L.A. Rush tries to keep up with the street racing scene, but it’s all show and no go. Repeating races over and over isn’t exactly a draw and the lack of customization is unforgivable.
  3. Because the gameplay was so uninspired, I found myself speeding through streets and ramming myself into the sides of buildings or opposing traffic so that I could watch the physics engine in action, and even that grew tiresome after a short while.
