Great Game (but it's no GT3)
on 4 January 2003
This game is great fun.
I've only played Gran Turismo 3, so I can only compare it to that.
The graphics are just as good, so are the courses (and the short cuts are great as you don't have to stick to the track).
My kids find it easier than Gran Turismo 3 because the cars are a bit easier to control, which does mean that the game is sometimes a bit too easy to play.
I don't think this will keep me as occupied for as long as GT3 did (I've completed about 75% of the game in 2 weeks, and I only spend about 20-30 mins a day on it).
NFS vs GT3 positive points - being chased by Cops and being a Cop; My kids enjoy it more.
NFS vs GT3 negative points - A bit too easy at times; not as much detail in the game (eg. like buying/tuning cars); no licences to get; won't keep me as interested for as long as GT3 did.
At the end of the day this game is great fun, but can only give it 3 stars because I've compared it to GT3 which is still the King.
