SummaryThe Best Need for Speed yet, if you like Porsches
The GoodExcellent driving model, different cars feel different, the setup changes do make a difference, multi-pathed courses, factory driving mission-based challenges, plenty of tournaments to play, decent online play.
The BadCar's handling is slightly exaggerated, inability to create your own missions or tournaments, not enough difference in the parts, money too easy to come by, limited number of tracks, online play could be easier to configure, limited to only Porsches, lack of hot pursuit mode.
The Bottom LinePorsche Unleashed is the best Need for Speed Up to date. With 80 different models of Porsches (most are minor variants though) from the 356 to the 200 996-style 911 Turbo, and plenty of different tracks, the sim provides many many races. Each of the cars handle differently, and the two modes, factory driver and evolution are a lot of fun making through. However, several problems prevent it from being a true classic. Lack of editor prevents true longevity, and the Porsche-only focus turns off other exoticar fans. Still, this is one of the best driving games on the market. Don't miss it if you like driving games.
