Rated 9 out of 10 Great!
I rented this game for both the PS2 & 360 before and liked them both. This was my first game with the 360 Elite holiday bundle. I like it a lot still. The only thing I wish they would have updated was character models and more cars. I'm stuck at league 3, because if I keep betting I lose all my money and if I lose my car... then yeah... You have to be careful in this game when you get up to league 4. The graphics are really nice. The challenge is DEFINITELY there... Sound.. I mean.. The soundtrack is simply great for this game. The controls are standard like all the rest which is what I like about it.... The design of the game and the menus and all that are really great. The only thing I wish they would've sped up was the loading time between the main menu and the career screen with you, your car, and your 2 partners... Like I said before great game, I just wish there were a few more vehicles to choose from.. but there is a lot.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Alpha da Great For ppl who love cars
For what i see from this game is that it needs some more work as far as car and tracks but all around i love the game and would tell people to try it. As far as me i got a lot of people hook on this game because its fun to play after a hard day of work. My real only down fall for this game is that its nothing like the first one. In that game u had more cars and thats what i was looking for in this one but didn't really get that in this game. But i am looking forward to a new one because i think that the first two where good. Its funny because this was the first game i got for my 360 and the game came out years ago. But i new that i had to go get it because of the love i had for the first one. So if u r reading this and u can't pick which game u want between midnight club and need for speed try this game and open your eyes to something new and see what i see.

the first installment of the series i heard was a complete disaster.(though i never got to play) but this one sounds like it is going to be good and maybe this time around it will be able to compete with the nfs series, who knows. but i myself look for originallity in games. especially if they are already in a very popular genre such as racing games are concerned. so the driver and interior customizations will be a very welcomed new feature just as long as they are completed and polished and up to par with the next generation systems such as 360 and ps3 and it would also be cool if a wii version came out later if the game is succesful.

The second of this series is certainly a lot better than the first one was. I do not know if it will blow any competitor out of the water but it is a definite purchase for me. Graphics are descent, the driving is surprisingly good, and they have some unique concepts in the game. I've played the demo on the 360 with the hand-held controller but have yet to try it with my steering wheel. I'm sure it will be just as fun, if not more when using the wheel as all my other driving games have been. Try out the demo if you have access to the marketplace.

This game has good customization for your car(s). From vinyls, mods, and paint schemes. Your character is also customizable too. You can bet pink slips, money in races for bigger winnings. Handling is a little out there, but most games like this are. I have not played online and don't know if the server is even still up and running. I am borrowing this from a friend and it is worth the 14.99 price tag. Not a bad tuner game. Graphics are decent, not the best, but also not the worst. All in all good competition for the NFS series of tuner games.
Rated 0 out of 10 by mastergir420 i need this!
Ok i love racing games. I never played the first one though. I play the hell out of dirt and forza motorsport 2, but i like the game because its "back to the basics'' just get in and race to win! Trying to tweek all the parts can drive me crazy. And the design of the more fantasy type then trying to do a real world is what makes this game more fun to me, because they more looked at how fun a track is then how real it is. I think this is going to be a must own for me. peace
Rated 0 out of 10 by DRiFT 2nd is better,..
i played this demo today not knowing if it was gonna be good or not. but after i played it i would have to say its pretty nice, and with including all the features it has for online like racing for money and pick slips and betting and watching others race. well just that blow NFS out of the water.and above all is still a good racing game. garphics arnt amazing but who knows it was just a demo ( well acctually i would say theyre NFS good so yea there ok).
Rated 0 out of 10 by deathknight666 sound great
I think this game is going to be better than the other games that came out and already I like the series because I have Juiced on the ps2 and Juiced: Elimator on the psp and they are both ok, but could be better and I read the review in the magazine gameinformer and it sound better than I thought and it is almost like need for speed I am going to buy it when it comes out and find out how great it is.
Rated 0 out of 10 by raberto suhn 1st one sucked
man the first game was the worst racing game i have ever played! the graphics looked worse than a playstation 1. nintendo 64 racing games were better! this game is going to be lame. the only reason they mad another because a lot of ppl like me thought the game was going to rule. so we wen't out and bought it. THIS GAME IS GOING TO BE EXTREMELY LAME!!!!!!
Rated 8 out of 10 by BigBird025666666 Good but could have been better
This game is like Need For Speed Underground and 2. Its has a lot awesome cars and customize in it. Also, Its a fun game to play but after a while it gets boring. Most of the race are too easy and a few are hard. The drifting is like the best thing about this game. The only thing i dislike about this game is that you race same person over and over.
