  1. Tries to make advances in the import racing game scene with a big city and interesting reward system, but its lack of white-knuckle racing and true customization slows it down. All show and no go makes this a dull ride.
  2. 40
    This racer needs a serious adrenaline injection to truly compete.
  3. It’s true that a lot of today’s youth do buy into the street racing life, but for them it would actually be more rewarding to steal a car and drive around in it for a bit than spend time on this.
  4. Sadly, this by-product of the world’s current obsession with illegal racing, ugly street cars being given garish makeovers by plebeians and all things neon or blacked out can do little to impact upon the success of other racers.

    this game is total shit, i stopped playin after a day of it. it uses cheap tricks to sell the game..by posting girls all over the game U Cthis game is total shit, i stopped playin after a day of it. it uses cheap tricks to sell the game..by posting girls all over the game U C THEM EVERWHERE!, it seems they didn't even try ,making the driveing system slightly believable, the physics of drivin was horrible. if u have driven a car, u would know if u've driven a car, a car doesn't straignten itself out after a slight turn, on top of that was hardly any aftermarket parts such as bodykits....total thumbs down by me. underground is much better, though it isn't the best..
