First off, let me say that this game is better than Underground 2, which in itself was a huge step up from Underground, but, alas! It still has the steaming pile of horse manure that is the drag (quite literally) racing mode. The rest of the game is miles above this. They may as well have put in a dice rolling option where you have to score double six to win. It really is that much of a pain. All the other races and chases you can win via speed and skill, the drag racing is a lottery, what a waste of time, and the achilles heel for an otherwise great game. That said, someone at EA obviously noticed this so thankfully the drags are at a minimum, but for pity's sake get rid of it for the next one. The rest of the game is outstanding, they've took out all the un-necessary tuning options from Underground 2 which detracted somewhat, added the thrill of being chased by the Rozzers for hurtling about at insane speeds, and it's set in the day time too so you can see what's what. Fantastic fun, mostly.
