Summary

A Fun Racing Game

The Good

It was a fun game to play. It had good graphics and the story-line was very reminiscence of the movie of Fast and the Furious.

The Bad

It could of had other cars in it. Where was the Ferrari? You can't really have a racing game with the Lamborgini and just not have the Ferrari. I would also think it would be cool if they would of had the Mclaren F1 or the Bugati. It also could of had more options for some of the visual options. The drag race portions of the game has very unresponsive handling and the game forces your to move your car a specific direction, which can get in the way of the race. Hitting your opponents car in single player does nothing, almost as if the car was a brick wall, but when the opponent tries to hit you'll lose control of the car so some game design could have been better. Nothing new. Almost exactly like Need for Speed Underground and the story is almost a direct ripoff of the Fast and the Furious.

The Bottom Line

A good fun game, but still lacked any replayability.
