The Good:

+ It looks a little bit better than the console versions.

+ Mods.

+ Runs great on 3rd world computers if you're stuck in a situation like that.

+ I used the picture of Goatse as my crash-cam.


The Bad:

- Music is fucking awful. Whoever said this game has a good soundtrack is either tone deaf, or they have terminal-stage taste cancer. Whoever thought Avril Lavine would make a great addition to a racing game's soundtrack, should be shot.

- No support for custom soundtracks. (Muting in-game music and running FooBar in the background is your best alternative).

- Car customization is rudimentary at best.

- Controller support leaves a lot to be desired. And by "a lot to be desired" I actually mean "make this fucking shit work Criterion!"

- Netcode is spotty. I was experience massive delay and lag spikes in a cross-region match (West Coast to Mid-West). Don't even think about doing international matches.

- Barebones graphical options. Very basic, they only offer resolution, vsync, texture quality, AA levels, and I think SSAO. There is motion blur in there, but most of you will turn that off.

- Advertisements are not updated. Burger King has been open past midnight for quite awhile now. In fact, they just begun location tests to measure how well 24 hr of operation fares.

- It gets old after playing it for an hour or so. Then you realize how shallow this game was, with the feeling of regret setting in because you wasted over 100 hours playing this game 7 years ago.

- Not enough blood or naked women.


Conclusion:

I had good fun playing the game back in 2009. Believe me, I platinumed the PS3 version and got 800~ gamerscore on the Heatbox 360 version. But at the end of the day, you realize this was a soulless game with an empty world that consisted of narrows paths that you are allowed to traverse on. You realize that the state of the racing genre is in despair, where arcade racers have regressed to the level of Burnout Paradise, and Sim Racers are struggling to keep away from the corporate-project driven stench that EA's anus has bestowed upon their two most popular racing franchises.


Final score:

3/10. It's over-hyped medicore bullshit; only buy it when it's on a Steam sale.

Hardware used:
FX 6300
16GB of DDR3 RAM
GTX 770
A Hard Drive
Integrated network connectivity
Integrated sound card because I'm a pleb
PS2 controller connected to a USB adaptor

Amazing game, but I can't reccomend it. The developer dropped this product, so if you weren't already a fan, I'd think twice before hitting the buy button on this one. Crashes constantly and is lacking a lot of support and DLC contained in the console version, not to mention the terrible UIs.

Amazing crashing game,
but then again, crashing in two ways.

meh!

I would rather have bought Burnout 3: Takedown for the same price.
It was a much better and enjoyable game. This game isn't terrible but just doesn't match up with it's predocessors.

Sign in with your steam account when it asks for your EA account....OR .....download Origin and copy the key from steam and paste into origin activation window to link the 2 accounts so you won't get the invalid key message and can play online with meeeeeeee.

Pretty good. The only complaint I have is that it teases you with an amazing soundtrack full of adrenaline fueled classic rock songs by playing "paradise city" on the opening screen, only to take it away from you and murder your ears with an instagram hipster's entire playlist

But seriously, the worst thing I can say about this game is that it didnt come with a complimentary blow job. Hit me up for some multiplayer

By the way, to get the DLC (WELL worth it IMO) go to the Origins website, all four DLCs come in a bundle for like $1.49, cheap as dirt.

Had this game back when I was 10 on console. Must have played 100+ hours on it just driving around, not completing missions or anything. Times were simpler back then... Seeing a car be crushed into a small cube was just as entertaining to me as an entire campaign of singleplayer content. I bought this game for PC years ago when it was on sale but never played it because I had no doubt in my mind that it wouldnt run on my potato computer. Yesterday (as of writing this review) I decided to install it just to see how bad my frames would be, and suprisingly I was able to run it at low settings at a decent 30 frames per second. It was the best feeling driving around paradise city again for the first time in 6 years. It also proved that little has changed in what can and can't keep me busy for hours on end.

That was the greatest game back in the days when I played it hours!
I absolutely loved it and still too! :-)

Single-player is awesome and multiplayer with friends is wicked! ;-)

Still recommend this game for everyone out there! :-)

About Bonus Vehicle Pack DLC: altough you can not buy it on Steam if you have an Origin account with the same email address as the Steam account and buy it on Origin it will show up on Steam too.
As for the game itself, it's a 10/10 even without the DLC. Get it !

In short, this is the best casual racing game for me.
If you feel bored with your current game, you can relieve it by play this game for awhile.

Anyway, this is an open-world racing game. So when you're in the race, feel free to drive wherever you want as long as you reach the finish line, which is good in my opinion.

The another good thing with this game is, I barely hit the brake when I need to drift around the corner.
so, yeah... HIT THAT MF NITRO BOOST BUTTON INSTEAD, FAM!!!

Overal 8.9/10 to kill the boredom.
