    The cars look and sound great. The cities are nicely detailed, and the game delivers a fantastic sense of speed and danger. However, the trial-and-error racing system stops being fun long before you win the last race. Save yourself time and money, and just punch yourself in the face repeatedly. In the end, it's more enjoyable and less frustrating than playing this game.

    An insanely fast, choatic and progressive racing game that betters the second in the series with more accessible racing, without losing its competitive edge.
  2. It all adds up to a breakneck racing experience that offers a lot of fun (especially when you consider the online modes) for a little cash.

    The big new addition is Tokyo. Fortunately, the developers have made the city available by default right on the menu screen, so for those of you worried that you might have to play through the original three cities to get to the new stuff, worry not.
