    Well, if you are not the betting kind, you can always stick to the arcade modes. In truth, they aren't to be missed and this is as complete a driving game as any even if you never enter a career race....

    A good old fun game. In other words, an instant classic of the NFS series.

    Rated on February 22, 2005 by Dodger26

    Good game, good career mode, bad graphics. My favorite part would have to be the career mode!!!!!! It rules! :)

    Rated on October 10, 2005 by twillingate

    This is an excellent game, with terrible graphics. I love the career mode, you can make money, kind of like GT3 A-Spec (which I have also reviewed), I love games where you can start a racing career. L...
