Hyped up title, didnt live up to the promise.

good game, not as good as it was hyped up to be though. the single player has its up and downs. the character models are absolutely horrible, the graphics arent the best and the servers where always down when i played the game. on the upside, the amount of cars available and the size of the games world (Ibiza and later on, Hawaii)more than make up for it. the customisation was a let down, all you can do is a paint job and minor performance upgrades. i was expecting need for spped undercover levels of customisation but was quite disapointed.
overall this is a good game but not great, if youre kind of games are the ones like grand theft auto where you love to free roam and explore, this is the perfect game for you. if you were looking for an experience similar to need for speed hot pursuit where everything is available to you at the start, dont bother.
Graphics 7/10 terrible character models but the level of detail in the cars is impressive
Gameplay 8/10 this is not an arcade driver like nfs or a simulation like forza/gt5, it is sort of in the middle
Sound 4/10 cars sound similar but nice, voice acting is horrendous and the in game radio only has two radio stations with an hour long soundtrack
multiplayer cannot comment
