This game is sooooooooooooooo good if you read this and are wondering wether to get it or not im telling you now go and get it!!! First of all its only $40. There is a ton of road to drive on I personally have dumped a lot of time into this game and im not even close to completing all of the missions. The cars handle great I think but a lot of people say they handle weird for some reason. But I couldn't tell you how the online play is but I dont have live yet but i do hope to get it soon. Its definitely worth your 40 bucks. The only thing that bothers me about this game is that it is hard to find some of the tuning shops but otherwise the game kicks a$$.
