Pros Great cop chases.
Cons Cops chases are hard to get out of. More cars please. Could have used better online play with ability to evade and play as cops. Where are the motorcycles?
Summary If you like NFS Undergroud or Most Wanted or enjoyedplaying Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition, you will love the improvements to this game. SInce I've gotten my 360, this is the game I've enjoyed the most. It's insanely fun and addictive.
Pros Very nice graphics and car selection
Cons Might be nice if time of day seemed to change more
Summary The graphics are incredible. The realism is intense. The game is addictive. There's simply no way you'll go wrong with this game. If you are very picky, you might notice (at least to me) that the entire game seems to take place at around 30 minutes before sunset - might be nice if the time of day, shadows, etc. changed. But that's just a minor complaint. Fun stuff.
Pros Highly addictive, long-term playability, addrenaline filled, heart pumping action.
Cons May give you heart palpatations during the intense police chases.
Summary Overall this is an awesome game. I beat it on the original Xbox and bought it again for the 360 to play it over again. The only drawback on the 360 that I found was on a few occasions the game froze when it couldn't load the background fast enough for whatever reason (or it would have received a perfect 10). This game gets your adrenaline pumping during the intense police chases.
Pros more intriguing than basic racing games, decent graphics, story line to follow
Cons easy to beat but long and boring, takes a long time to beat it because they make you do so many pointless races
Summary If you like any of the need for speeds you love this. The game is more than just racing, it's about maneuvering, getting away from cops, and also about causing damage and wreaking havok. This game was fun and entertaining. It never seems that there are that many people playing it online though, it's hard to get decent races going. And also I was disappointed because in the PSP version you can also be the cops and not just the criminals
