I purchased this game for my brother hoping that it would be AT LEAST very similar to the NFS Most Wanted I played on my PS2 as a kid (like 8ish years ago). Because that was the BEST NFS game out there. The best car customization. Awesome cop chases and fantastic crash damage to the cops. It was such an awesome game. I wish they made free roam racing games like that still.
This game is NOT like that. You don't even purchase cars. You drive around (free-roam) until you find random cars parked around the map, and hop in them. So, I guess, yeah you can drive a really cool - fast car within the first 5 minutes of the game. But, where is the story? Where is the "hard work" racing, and earning money to buy that sweet corvette???
Cop chases: Every time you cool down, it only drops a single heat level. Instead of ridding you from the cop chase entirely, you have to sit a very long time to ditch the cops. Not fun. You also can't smash through road blocks. You total your car. Lame. The cops feel very heavy regardless of the type. Again, half the fun is ramming through the cops. WHERE IS THE "FLAT OUT 2" DAMAGE MECHANICS?
Yeah, I was hoping for the NFS Most Wanted game. This is completed different. Not happy :( Unfortunately.
