This game is not like the other NFS games, so don't buy if you're hoping its going to be the same as the rest. Nitro, introduces Cartoon into NFS, by making the Characters AND the cars, Cartoon-ish. You can customize and race like all the rest. But the cops chases, and random speed races wont be there. The cops come into the middle of the race, and they are very violent. The races, you have a certain amount of races to do, before being able to move to the other part of the map, but you get rated by points. Stars for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place, for Points (Drifting, Nitro, etc.) and for time. like say 1 minute and 20 sec. is the time you have to get to achieve the star. Some races, you get to try different cars, other races are normal. But overall, its a good game.
