    This is based on 9 hours of gameplay and ive completed about 10% of the game since most of the time spent was free roaming and tuning

    Graphics 9/10

    These graphics are amazing for a handheld. Every is very smooth and until you reach the end of the game with the super fast cars it doest get blurry at al like some reviews stated. What is amazing is the amount of detail like when you get really close to a opponents convertible you can see almost every detail of the interior and you can even see your opponenets speed gauge!


    Controls: 8.5/10

    The default controls are almost perfect somehow they managed to put everything on a limited amount of buttons and for you gamers who arent satisfied every button is customizable (so far default are best though). Now where this loses some points is the steering. You can only turn when your accelerating. Even if your moving at 200 mph the car wont turn until you acelerate.


    Gameplay 8.9/10

    The gameplay is marvelous with several modes that will keep you buys for quite a while. Well first we have quick race. This is literally just automaticlay starting a random race against random cars. The only problem is this quick race isnt so quick because of the awful 60 second load times. Dont get me wrong the game is the best out so far but most peopole are refraining from buying this game because of the load times.
    Then thers Arcade which is just free roaming around however you like it. You can change the time of day as well as weather affects and cities (once you unlock newere ones). I havent tried out multiplayer since none of my friends own a PSP (sadly they think its retarded). Now you have campagne this is where the real fun stars. You start of jstu free roaming aroudn the city and youu go to your map. This will show all the people, clubs, and gangs (yes gangs) looking for a race as well as local competitions. Then you jsut drive to them snd the race begins.


    Customization 10/10

    This is freakin perfect you can customize every thing from all major brands all over the world. Its all so easy and organized inot categories and sum categories I taught my sister how to do it. Of course if your to lazy to figure out what parts to get dont. Just click auto upgrade and it will spend all your cash on parts that the game picks.


    Replay Value 9/10

    Replay value is great as people that you have beaten sometimes will come back later in the game and have new cars like Vanesa (first opponent) starts out wiht a mitsubishi eclipse and comes back later with a mazda rx 8. One thing is the cities all kinda are the same once you get to know them. They are HUGE and it will take you a month to memorize them but if you come back to them you more than likely to be a bit bored.


    OVERALL 9.08/10


    Great game wiht awesome graphics and customizable controls with 100's of cars. Lots of replay value as winning a race with a specific car unlocks you new cars or new opponents. The only issue wiht this game is load times and if you can bear through 30 seconds to a minute of waiting this game is perfect for you.

    We got our review copy of the game this morning but couldn't play it till I got home from work. During our brief time testing it we noticed a huge problem. The load times are way too long, it's unreal how long it takes to load. The gameplay is really nice but it really doesn't justify the amount of time it takes to load a new car in the menu screen. It seems to take about 5 minutes minimum to start a game.

    No doubt - the load times are absolutely terrible. Other than that, the game is pretty solid.

    I just bought this game a couple days ago,and it kicks ass! I keep reading on these sites people complaining about the load times.Well it does take a min to load, but that aint bad when the game is that good.
    There isnt that many good games out for this system yet,so the load time on this game should'nt be that big of a deal. If you want somthing to complain about play rengoku!
