The BEST NFS game according to me, a clear 9a
+ Upgrading Opportunities
+ Buy new cars
+ Many different events
+ Car chase engines, great fun, and what I remember right hard after a while
- A bit monotonous in the long run, but not as monotonous as the others in the NFS Series
- The story
- Graphics, quite rigid even though it has a few years old.
EDIT: Want to warn people to buy for PC. I went on for three hours to get it up and running. Read all the forums I could find in order to find solution to the problem. Found nothing and now I'll send back the game.
However, this seems to be a problem that does not happen all when the moderators on microsoft's forums had no problems whatsoever with the game.
