The controls are a bit mysterious at first (you have to complete missions to figure them out) and even then they are difficult to describe. Sadly there is also very little customization. You get 4 drivers and 4 *cough* vehicles. However, once you get the hang of the controls, you can basically do whatever you want."

The most recent, Need for Speed: Payback, I was able to get early access to it and so far I have to say this has to be the most fun I've had in the series. The graphics are mind blowing and the game play is top notch. I really dig the car selection this time around and they really got the tuning down to a fun balance of arcade or sim depending on playing preference.
