4.0 out of 5 stars The best in the series? June 1, 2000
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
I've been playing the NFS titles since number 2 and we are now on the 5th. Its hard to play a game in a series without judging it against previous ones. When I first played NFS5 it had a very different feel to the previous ones. The graphics engines on 3 and 4 were almost identical. 4 had lots additions to 3, it was the introduction of the career mode, damage but it did sometimes feel like an add on pack as it had the same 'feel' - similar cars, same gameplay/graphics.
Still, after much debate I have found I enjoyed the 4th installment the most because of the introduction of the new career mode.
So what additions were there to #5. Does it feel like another add on pack? It plays like a different game entirely. Gone are the cops (sob!)and the range of cars and bring on the Porsches! There are TONS of them and everyone is different. It was a bit boring at first with the old cars (as they drive like a wheelbarrow!) but once you get going this is a hughly addictive game.
My favourite part is still career mode where you start of in the 60s with old cars and build your way up to modern day. Winning tournements means you get money to buy new cars and so on.
The graphic engine has been totally revamped. Cars movement is more realistic as is collisions. One bad hit will do your car a lot of damage unlike before. Steering will suffer (similar to Rally Championship) and you wont just get big knocks bumping up your damage the same as small knocks. The graphics are also the best of their kind. You need a good spec machine (nothing less than a PII400) and although there always seems to be a lack of tracks in NFS games they are a joy to ride. They have multiple routes for the first time and the cars AI has been improved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ausgezeichnet! (Excellent) March 28, 2000
By A Customer
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
I'm not a big computer gamer except where driving simulations are concerned. I have purchased every one of the Need For Speed series and while they are all very good, Porsche Unleashed takes the prize as my favorite to date.
The new physics model is evident the minute you start playing this game. The cars demonstrate characteristics of many of the orignal cars. For instance, one will get the idea why the early 911 series cars were sometimes referred to as "the widow makers" (Hint: After you get the game, drive an early Porsche 930 and try lifting off the throttle in mid-turn. Now try to keep the car from swapping ends! It is very entertaining to master the handling issues of each car. The game also includes a Porsche Test Driver program that will put you in more than a few challenging situations. I had this game the day after it's release and have been hooked ever since. If you appreciate games with a bit more attention to detail, PU has it. I love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars best NFS yet April 20, 2000
By A Customer
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Definitely one of the best racing games available, especially for the PC. The physics model is far better than the past ones, and the two main game modes, Evolution and Factory Driver, are challenging and fun. Since I got it, I haven't been able to stop playing. I sit down intending to only run a race or two, and I end up playing for hours. Aside from a few complaints about realism (the cops seem intent on causing as many accidents as possible, whether with evil speeders or innocent passerby (of course, it is an arcade game after all(I love nested comments, don't you?))) there is nothing wrong with the game. I miss the hot pursuit from earlier versions (namely NFS3), but the two main game types more than make up for it. If your computer has the horsepower to run it, you won't find a more graphically appealing or fun-to-drive game anywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poor man's way of driving a $100,000+ Porsche June 11, 2001
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Ever wished to drive a porsche down the street racing past other cars at over 100+mph?? This is the game! Fast pace, almost realistic physics, and real porsches at your disposal!! Featuring Evolution (starting with older models and work your way up), Porsche test drive team, multiplayer, single quick race and Knockout race. Beautiful scenery, great sounds and music soundtrack for the ears........
GFX: 8/10; Still some glitches
Sound: 9/10; I love the way the engine sounds

Control: 9/10; Just like any other racing game, simplified
Replay: 8/10; many modes, and manipulation of tracks offer great replay value
Realism: 7/10; quite realistic, but I am sure you get more than a yellow dent if you crash into the wall head on at 120mph
Overall (not average): 8.5/10

5.0 out of 5 stars The NFS Game. June 15, 2003
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
The stories of NFS Hot Pursuit II coming out, The NFS Underground, all cannot beat the magnificence of this sheer driving pleasure game.
There are no Yellow Ferraris, No Black Diablos, No White F1s, No Green Astons, No Blue Lotus' No petty Mercs and BMs....Only Porsche. This game, from its absolutely stunning high-end graphics in the game menus, not to mention the actual game, is simply a bliss to be in. From the 1950 Coupe Ferdinand, named after Dr Ferdinand Porsche, the Creator of Porsche, to the GT1s, GT2 Cup, GT3, 959s (Only 200 in the world), 928 GTS, The 550 A Spyder (James Dean became immortal after he died in this car), and not to mention all those Carreras, the Moby Dick, and 911s. There are 81 different Porsches and not counting the bonus cars which you download.
You have 3 Different Types of Games to play, the Evolution, which is the heart of Porsche Unleashed, and the Factory Driver, whereby you undertake little missions to qualify as a Authentic Porsche Factory Driver, (There is a Rolf who first is introduced, reminicense of Dean's personal Porsche Mechanic, Rolf Wutherich) and normal Original NFS Games featuring some of the Factory Cars to play Quick Races and Knockout Rounds.
The Evolution. This is a game that is to have you on your Racing Wheels for a very longtime. Starting from 1950, moving from the Classic Era, to Golden, to the Final Modern Era, you have to win the Tournaments to make your way up in the Timeline, you will earn money, sell cars, collect cars, paint them, tune their gears, adjust tire pressure, shock level, shock travel, the toe-ins, brake balances, and most importantly, the Downforce.

I adored this game a decade ago, but found it shockingly horrible today. You can't go home again, and I strongly suggest you don't if you have fond memories of this game as I did.
