The best single player racing game out. The best combination of arcadey/sim racing. All cars handle differently. Fast paced racing. Intense in car view. Rewind ability. Damage effects car handling. A sh*t load of race types...from drift contest, to standard lap races, to japanese toga races, to euro multi class races at the same time, to destruction derby races. Game is fun to play with a ton of variety. The career mode is even a blast. As you build your own racing team, hiring drivers and pleasing sponsors to get more cash.
Burnout Paradise is good also but its best played with friends. Having friends online to clown with cant be beat.
