This game just can't get a 9 or above from me. No, I'm not insane. It's because the game has some minor problems that bugged the hell out of me. Why is it that my car is in the good-enough-condition-to-drive state? Why is it so hard to unlock ALL of the cars? Why are there no multipliers in Crash Mode? Why couldn't EA fix these minor problems so that I can give this game a 10? Don't get me wrong though, this game is good. My favorite moments in the gams is when you get taken out and the car that took you out is marked red which means that you can get 3,500 points by taking them out. The special cars are also great. My favorite is the Criterion Racer GT. Basically, this game is perfect for the paitent people( unlike me ), but if your like me, buy it, play it, enjoy it, and after 6 months, SELL IT. There's a whole lot of great parts to this game, but it's the minor problems that kept it out the 9.0 range.
