First, a little summary of this review; this is one of the best games ever made! The takedowns are better than burnout 3! (which is a huge achievement for those who haven't played it.) And one of the bad things about the last game (Phsyce-outs were FAR to easy to do (in my opinion)) have been fixed if maybe a bit too much seeing as you hardly ever get phsyce-outs now. There's definately no shortage of cars (even if half of them are the same) and the game's highest speed car (or second i'm not too sure) is 209mph when boosting! There is also a new ranking system which gives you credit fo how aggressively you drived and where you came in the race. You can now also "check" (hit) same-way traffic without getting your own car demolished! (don't go charging into the back of an 18-wheeler though!) The only thing that stopped my from giving this game an A+ was that if you are going at a low speed (50mph) and crash, then you don't actually crash, you stop, and then it's takes around 15 seconds to get back on the track because your car keeps spinning out! Anyway, if you like this sort of thing, buy it. If you don't.... buy it anyway. I hate racing games but I loved this game! Well worth getting.
