    Because of:

    * Stupid and short story
    * Overpowered and unbalanced cops, who behave as super-cop tanks with terrible rubberbanding and acceleration from 0 to 250 in seconds, catching up even with the fastest cars in the game. Game difficulty setting has no effect on cops.
    * No controller remapping. Manual shifting is problem with standard controls.
    * No wheel support.
    * Many cars don't even reach their real-world speed (in an arcade game!) and overall incorrect setup and balance for cars. '65 Mustang with upgraded engine has better highspeed handling than a BMW M car etc..
    * Tapping gas for drift is extremely unreliable. I'd call it a broken game mechanic.

    It had a real potential, but as most EA games today, they managed to screw it up.

    I always lure the cops to water and bump them into it, or use ramps that make you jump over a canal and they'll lose you.
    It was usually hard when too many cops show up but if you keep it to 2 or 3 cop cars it's easy.

    It's a racing game. Exploiting specific bugs in cop AI is not a fix, nor a good game mechanic.

    It definitely is a solid game, and the underground vibe has given it a big big boost, it feels good to play this game

    They wouldn't give it back to Criterion if Heat would've sold well

    I have fond memories of the old NFSs, when they added the ability to add more custom cars from the internet. I remember going to a friends flat (his parents had good connection) and having him copy cars onto a bunch of floppies! Sad to see that the series started to stagnate. Then again, I grew out of these racing games in the early 2000s.

    The old NFS SE from 1998 had the best music ever. You could choose between techno or rock/metal and i still play these songs in the background when playing racing games today. Brings back the memories!

    The last best nfs game was most wanted from 2005 imho.
    Played ofcourse everything after that including heat but its just not the same anymore.
    After carbon it lost its touch a bit.
