Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Graphics but be careful... This game has nice graphics but the gameplay is weird, you have to smash some carts or beds in a specific amount of time in some levels, or even get to a checkpoint till time runs out. Your cars are ruined with stupid tags, like a guitar on the car or a dinosaur, every time you get tag a gold ring, the sides of the buildings around you will get painted with your symbol. It's fun, but for 6-10 year olds. A good racing game for the ds would probably be asphalt Uburan GT 2 or Grid 2. Their are about 30 cars in the game, from a Pagani Zonda to a classic Chevy Camaro. BEWARE OF THE COVER!!! THE CARS DO NOT LOOK LIKE THE COVER OF THIS GAME!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from awsome but some little flaws title; Need for speed ntiro publisher; electronic arts platform ds, wii i think that the game did not get a perfect ten because of for one it was missing a big bunch when it come's to a racer such as mario kart ds it has wi fi but this game does not. the time it took me to do a cup witch is 6 countries with four levels that = 24 levels so the apeeal does not appeal for as long as other gaems it is also missing time trails i was at least exsepecting that but i am giving it for what it has and what it has is greaat so i recomend fort a good ds racer for a kid from 10-12 for only $20.00 dollars great gaem that is why i give it a nine

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay I bought this game thinking "Hey I read good reviews, and it seems pretty good." When I bought it, I could not put it down. After a few days, I beat it. I'm a pretty good gamer and I learn relativley quickly, but this was ridiculous. By playing 1 hr a day, for 3 days, I beat it. A good gamer for beginners to the amazing, and quite extensive need for speed saga, which at the time I was, but if you know what you are doing, this game is easy. Again, easy game, gets sort of harder as the game progresses, but not like other video games that I have played. I still play... when I am sooo bored I cant think of anything to do, but after its beaten, its not worth playing, so I intend to sell back to Gamestop. For a final time: Game=Okay Plot= not good Difficulty= Way to easy Plot= Kind of okay...
