Need for speed: Its good!
on 27 January 2009
Most people are complaining about this game, but lets face it, they usually just think about graphics!
HEY!!!! You dont buy a game cause it looks like something by Roy Lithenstine, you buy it cause its fun!!!
You play a driver working for Agent Chase who wants you to go deep and become one of the gang in illegal car smugglers, dealers, and violent gangs
Once you get their trust, or get onto a bigger lead, you bust em, by taking them down
Now, undercover for the PS2 does have a couple downsides such as no "My Cars" garage and not having the Audi R8
But I have to say, the realism in the driving has improved
There is no drift race mode, but you can drift, just by holding the handbrake for a second, and turning, you drift round and it is really useful
I have only taken down one small gang and I already have a trusty Lotus Elise with a nice blue camouflage paint style, and a Ford Mustang police car
Multiplayer has improved as it has a great mode that has come back from Hot Pirsuit, Cops n Robbers
One player is a cop is a police tuned Ford Mustang, Lambourghini Murcilago or (I cant remember the last one) and the other uses a special car, such as a highly tuned Zonda, Lambo or Nissan with many more
If you are desperate for the Audi, get it for something else like PC
The city is called "Tri-City" where there are 3 corners of an island, all conected by highways over the ocean
The setting is amazing, looking like a place such as Miami, with palm trees, modern buildings, and even a few shoppin centre to drive through
The cops have become much more tricky to handle, as they attempt to "Pin" or "Box" you much more, and they use the "Rolling Wall" technique much more often
The customise has the autosculpt feature from CARBON and as well as some brilliant new vinals, it also features some retro vinals coming back from CARBON and Most Wanted
Overall, only someone who really follows the Need For Speed series wont complain about this (Though the no "My Cars" garage was really annoying, so save your money if you want to make cars for friends)
