Overall I love this game. I love the arcady feel while driving and I believe that they really nailed the visual customization this time. But I can't fathom the ridiculous card performance upgrade system. get rid of it and EA would have made a NFS game that everyone would enjoy. But it seems like EA doesn't know how to make a good racing game anymore.

dont listen to the morons

apparently people don't understand that unreleased games arent finished games. never once had a crash or bug, and midway through my trial an update was released proving they're paying attention to the data they get back. game was fun and addicting. upgrades can be bought and the real money purchases are mostly cosmetics.

Not a true NFS game.

The story and characters are awesome but mostly it's driving around plus there are no free roaming cops which for a NFS game is a disgrace. I liked the NFS games which had somthing for everybody like police chases and online. To be honest there isn't much replay value unless you add the free roaming police and online back.

Actually not bad at all

lok this game is pretty fun and easy to pick up customization is pretty deep not underground 2 deep more like midnight club 3. Drifting is easy especially with live tuning and for you stanced and sticker nerds your covered. Theres a good amount of cars and racing is seperated into 5 categories. This game does have flaws MP has NO FREEROAM 1st there is no back on road that i found for when you stuck big issue 2nd speed cards are lame the system is good but using cards is lame come on ghost and EA this is NFS not Pokemon DERP. 3rd the music sucks like bad they really dropped the ball here and 4th is Tyler Morgan he literally is the most annoying character ever his lines, voice acting and his voice are cheesy and annoying he sounds way to young for his role. I also had to turn off cinematic crashes at first its cool but then it gets annoying. So overall it has some flaws but not enough to justify the harsh ratings it has gotten if you enjoyed NFS 2015 you will love this game👍

Good but...

The gameplay and customization is good but i did the "remove parts" glitch on my 350z and everytime i do an event with it the game crashes! I hope Ghost, Microsoft, or EA sees this post and fixes it. EDIT: I if this happens to you just sell the cars. ALSO HURRY UP WITH THE RX-7 I NEED IT
