"Best of all"on by eliudjr
Pros Most realistic and drivable
Cons Next release must improve graphics
SummaryWhen I said about the graphics I meant image resolution. The tracks and cars are great, but the image is not as realistic as Grand turism, for example.

Pros Graphics are fairly good.
Cons Takes to long to load races. No race map during race. Cars are too fragile. Always start at the back of the grid and computer drivers are too slow. Computer drivers consistently crash into you, or they will just stop and sit there if blocking them.
Summary Do not waste your money on this game. Buy grand turismo or one of a hundred other better racing games.
Pros Amazing graphics, fantastic gameplay (especially when using the interior camera), smart opponents and partners. The cars look great, the menus look really good and the fact that you can costomize your own team is fun.
Cons The game doesn't have a storyline like NFS games usually have.
Summary Even though it doesn't have a story line, all of the pros of this game makes you forget about it. Defenetlly a most buy!
Pros Graphics are great, Game concept is good but...
Cons The controlls are just to rediculous. Could not get a controller to work with the game and using a keyboard was just to frustrating. Play Pro Street if you want a good racing game.
Summary It seems that every Codemasters game I own has some sort of flaw in it. They are the worst. I knew when I first saw the Codemasters logo pop up on the screen after installing it that there was going to be something wrong and stupid with the game and sure enough...no control over you cars.
Pros Super realistic graphics, very smart opponents
Cons Frustratingly hard to play, terrible profile / save system
Summary This is a fantastic game on the surface, however I am going to have to force myself to play again after ending the last session in frustration!!
From the get go, you have ultra-high powered cars, which means tap the gas a tad too hard and you are goosing it in an endless circle burnoff.
After attempting "Normal" difficulty a few times, the friendly computer voice informed me that I wasn't doing too well and should try an easier setting.
Sounds great, lets try BASIC. Not a bit different. The car is crazy out of control. No cornering. Lame brakes.
This game only goes Up from there, to settings like SAVAGE and EXTREME. They would have done well for this E for everyone game to play much easier in BASIC mode.
And if you and your bro want to both play, the poorly designed saving of profiles prevents having more than one player profile for the entire game.
Oh you can create a new profile, with a new name, country flag, etc. Only when you save it, you can only overwrite the ONE SINGLE AUTOSAVE for the whole game, wiping out the other players profile.
Honestly, I may give it another try before going back to Street Racing with Niko.
