It annoys me that most of the people who buy this game are the same people who go on every NFS clip and comment on how badly they want a new underground/street racer...If you want it then vote with your wallet and stop buying this tokyo drift crap but you never listen just like Microsoft changed their DRM policy.

Word of warning: DO NOT BUY THIS GAME if you plan on playing multiplayer. 

It uses a P2P system, NOT dedicated servers so when after the 8th - 9th time trying to even start the game (it has to connect to somone first, otherwise its unplayable) you will find yourself in a lobby on the other side of the world making it a lag fest. EA screwed up yet again.


If you want to play single player, you can not pause the game while playing. You have to drive to hideout, wait 20 secs for it too load and then you can pause.

@aus_pride I personally haven't had any issues playing the game.  I have the occasional drop, but the servers reconnect almost immediately and your status is generally saved.
