  1. Adventure or racing? Definitely racing! The cut scenes are not suspenseful enough for an adventure. But I like Tri-City with its varied missions and the intuitive controls. Unfortunately the game sometimes drops to a low frame rate.

The game has good graphics; but not very good because while you're driving around in the game, cars and trucks pop-out from a short distance. This makes it difficult cause you could get hit by those cars. Career mode in this game is very short; but the cutscenes are epic. The cutscenes shows actors and alot of things happening like your watching a movie. These cutscenes really get you to play this game even more. The sound in this game is great; but in cutscenes the sound does get a little fuzzy. Challenge Series is fun, but like career mode, it's very short.

The be a cop mode in career is a complete failure, the cars you're chasing barely move. The cars are unrealistic; my Porsche can go 400+. In the multi-player mode you can't see ahead of you very far if you are playing with 3 or 4 players. The game is way overpriced considering all the facts above. The only thing that I thought was successful was the drifting aspect. The game has plenty of glitches like the one where you go into a wall and suddenly you're going at 1857 KPH. That's just plain stupid. A game should be thought through wisely and tested before being released to the public. Once you've finished the game there's not much you can really do except drive around the really small map and get into a cop chase that lasts about 1 minute. I don't recommend purchasing this game.
