Of course NFS is kinda bad in the DS.

The main entry of the series are the cars appearance customization, with the DS limited space they will have to give up on that, or the graphics or the framerate... so try to guess what they picked?

And anyway NFS, as a racing game is way overrated, the only point of the game is just customizing the car, but for what? Not that your car will be better to drive if it has flames or blue painting, besides the game its not very fun at all. Mario kart as a racing game is waaaay better and grid for a DS racing game is better too.

Maybe it just me, but with NFS mechanics and specially lack of fun (you just drive through the streets, if you crash your car crash... oh... great... -.-)... its better to drive a real car...

I have the game GRID, but I have never played any of the need for speed games (they tend to fail every time). But you're right, GRID is by far one of the best realistic racers on the DS.

For someone who actually Played NFS games on DS, but not GRiD (yet) I can say the only one that picked my interest was Underground 2 because of it's gradual learning curve. The most fun racing game I've played was Ford Racing, while the best so far (to me) is Juiced 2 - Hot Import Nights. Didn't like Race Car - Create and Drive at all.

i have played both ... and maybe this is just me. but i don't consider any one of them a good game ... and wouldn't go as far as calling any one of 'em "amazing". they're okay at best in my books. the DS isn't really a good console to play racing games IMO

Trackmania is very good, one of the best or maybe even the best racer on DS.
Haven't played any NFS games on the DS. Grid was alright.
