This Nintendo-exclusive release of a Need For Speed focuses on a Arcade-like gameplay. Although the graphics have a comic-style the cars are licenced.

The races include classical circuit races, K.O. races, time trials, and races where you have to pass a certain point at the highest speed possible. Also the Drag- and Driftraces introduced in The Need for Speed Underground series are here as well. In this part the police is present again providing high speed chases with the player with the possibility to take their side too.

New to the series are Power Ups which repair your car during an event for example since cars can get damaged even to the point that the performance is affected.

The action takes place on public roads which can be found in Singapore, Madrid, Cairo, Rio de Janeiro and Dubai.
