The play games starts out pretty fun. Once you get to around 7th or so on the blacklist, it starts getting pretty bad.
The first few races are easy wins. Then, it gets a bit more difficult, and around 7th on the list, the races just don't get difficult, but thanks to the terrible AI (the AI might actually be too good, thus making it terrible), they get almost impossible to beat. I love a challenge, but EA takes it too far. Don't forget the complete lack of realism in the game.
First of all, I don't think anyone at EA researched the cars in the game. In real life, in a race between a modded RX8 and an equally modded WRX STi, the STi would wipe the floor with the RX8. Not in this game. Want to beat the modded STi? Buy a stock RX8, you're almost guaranteed a win. An Adui TT is not faster than a Corvette. It has nowhere near the power of a Vette. But in this game, it's the other way around. The TT will beat the Vette. EA should have fixed this, make the cars in the game resemble the cars in real life.
Second, the AI never makes mistakes. While even the best players will spin out and crash occasionally, the AI cars rarley, if ever, crash or lose control.
Third, the cops in this game are extremley annoying. The cop cars have perfect handling and are always faster than you. Not only that, the cop cars have some dirty tricks to try to get you to stop. They'll force you into civilian traffic, they'll crash into you, anything. Most people want the game to be realistic. Now, I've never been involved in a high speed chase myself in real life, but I know that cops would never, ever force you into a civilian's car to get you to stop.
If the complete lack of realism isn't enough, here's more complaints:
If you dont like much of this game perhaps you can play fighting games here
