Hustle by day and risk it all at night in Need for Speed Heat, a white-knuckle street racer, where the lines of the law fade as the sun starts to set. By day, Palm City hosts the Speedhunter Showdown, a sanctioned competition where you earn Bank to customize and upgrade your high-performance cars. At night, ramp up the intensity in illicit street races that build your reputation, getting you access to bigger races and better parts. But stay ready – cops are waiting and not all of them play fair

The best Need for Speed yet!!! (In my opinion) The mechanics and driving physics are phenomenal. So realistic! You can actually drive in your lane at 150 miles an hour if your reaction time is good. The cornering has been significantly improved. It was also a great move for EA to bring back the option to change the specks on the vehicles you have for the different styles, i.e. drift, offroad, race etc. Using parts and tires, instead of having to buy two different styles of the same vehicle like in Payback. Literally the only thing I feel needs improvement is that the story feels far too short. At Rep level 30 it's about done, with a max of 50. Although I will say I just finished the game and was only at 21% completion, so there is plenty left to do. Absolutely my favorite since when Most Wanted redefined the series for PS2. Definitely check this one out if you are a fan of racing games. Casual or serious, this one's got something for you. See you out there!!!

Yet another bland Need For Speed title. Nothing new to see here & the story is flat out bad. The driving feels fine for the most part & the customization is nice. This game & these games in general are in some serious need of going back to the drawing board to come up with a product worthy of release. Otherwise this is just the same engine with just another code of paint (pun intended).

Final verdict: Don't touch it

I'd say this was a modest above average racing game. The neon graphics paired with the gorgeous cars made this really fun to play. While the driving was okay, the cops difficulty made this game really frustrating. The city and races were nothing out of the ordinary and the story was forgettable at best.

A fun NFS experience! The driving system is quite simple but the game reminds me of the old games.
