Best NFS game for me hands down was 'Need For Speed: Underground 2'. I played and played and PLAYED that damn game to death! I'm not quite sure why I loved it so much because it had no police (sucked) and it was always at night (which I liked actually) it was SURELY arcadey but the driving was still really good fun and it honestly feel like you were going too damn fast
I bought it for the xbox and I bought it for the pc, that's how much I loved it. The FIRST 'Most Wanted' would be my second fav; good driving and sooooo MUCH OMFG AWESOME CUT SCENE RIDICULOUS VIDEO GOODNESS! The acting was embarrassingly bad but still awesome
An honorable mention would be the console only "Midnight Club: Los Angeles " The game had a TON of fun stuff to do and the speed was intense, unfortunately you had to be a fucking driving savant to actually win a race; IT WAS BRUTALLY DIFFICULT
But I loved that damn game anyway, solid fun.
Bought the new 'Hot Pursuit' and have played it quite a bit but....yeah like another said, "This ain't Need For Speed". And if Criterion keeps cranking them out then I think this series is done *shrug*
Recently discovered 'Driver: San Francisco' and would recommend this game to anyone that loves driving games. The steering is still a bit arcade but much more sim and it has licensed cars and a decent story. I'm playing this quite a bit right now.This comment was edited on May 23, 2013, 21:55.
