You start out with a few low level cars and work your way through a very long career map. The race types are similar to the ones in the past. Drift, Grip (i.e. a normal race), speed challenges and drag strips.
The feel of the game has definitely moved away from the very arcade like style of racing in Underground, but not so far to where it drives like a professional racing game would (like in Forza 2). It's a good balance, I find. There is no big world like there have been in the several past titles, so races are entered by visiting "race days" and selecting the ones to compete in. I miss the police chases from Most Wanted, but obviously that was a whole other style.
Overall, I'd say if you enjoyed Most Wanted and other NFS titles, this is a good buy. You won't be let down. Here are pros/cons broken down:
-Driving is more realistic than the past several titles
-Car damage is a great addition. No longer can you just enter a turn at 200mph, hit the wall and then continue driving.
-LOTS of car customization available. You can spend hours tweaking your car to the desired specification.
-Graphics are great.
-Announcer on race days and at race events is *really* irritating. I muted him minutes into the game.
-No city to free-roam around in (I enjoyed that aspect a lot)
-All races are closed and "legal", so there isn't any traffic to dodge or cops to run away from.
*Edit Note: I'd like to also add that I run this on Vista Ultimate and haven't had any problems with it...so if you're running Vista and are worried because you don't see it as a supported OS, you will probably be fine. (Who can ever tell with Vista)
The addition of crash damage is a huge step up, I think the only time they did this before was in III and it wasnt done really well then (the paint scratches in other titles dont count).
However the downsides of this game are to numerous to mention, and really detract from the overall enjoyment. The main ones are
1 - handling adjustments are really hard to get right, particularly as you cannot make adjustments while in a "Race Day" and set up your car to handle for each track.
2 - The addition of tracks like Mondelo make the game really frustrating rater than fun
3 - The cash prizes for upgrades are too low, particularly later on in the game if you want to remain competitive - and it is really annoying to have to go back to the beginning again to build up some cash reserves
4 - The "Storyline" is pointless and just distracts from the game. And as one other poster has pointed out the DJ announcements are an absolute waste of memory space
5 - Some of the tracks are just annoying
I got about 3/4 of the way through this game and realized that I just wasnt enjoying myself while playing. It had become a grind to continue on. If it had been any other title than Need For Speed I would have taken it on its own merits and may have been able to get all the way through
As it was I popped in Most Wanted again for another go, and put the fun back onto my desktop
This game really blows.
Otherwise it's one of my favourite Need for Speed games and it's great that I can play it again.
