The right direction but not quite there yet.....

1. The save function was an issue for me. I'm accustom to saving seperate files without over writing existing files so as to be able to play around with different avenues of approach to completing the game. This preserves the integrity of the control file just in case what I decided to do wasn't the smarted choice. The game will not allow you to do this and forces you to save over your file or continue without saving. Not a big problem for some but for me it didn't allow me to use trial and error tactics to finish the game.
2. Online mode is fine and all but I would have liked to have seen a clan function where you could build your own crews and take over zones or areas in a free roaming environment. A pink slip function would be great in order to add some risk to online racing inwhich the car you created could be won by another racer.
All in all the detail of the streets and interactivity of the environments is great. I especially love the AI of the police chases. I spent hours just antagonizing the police and had alot of Smokey and the Bandit moments. This was actually my favorite part of the game. I'm a fan of the series and this addition is worth owning.
