Released in late 2006, this was the twelfth title of the Need for Speed
series. It was squeezed out just in time for Christmas, and it shows. Considered by many to be a major step down from the previous game in the series, Most Wanted
, it featured a monochromatic and redundant environment, and severely dumbed down driving physics. Many of the cars, particularly the muscle cars
, are poorly rendered and thin on complexity. Maybe Pro Street
will be better.
