One of a few racing games I played I loved. Beaten by only Gran Turismo(s) and MSR on Dreamcast.

LOL I hear you!!!! I always loved racing that McLaren with a silver "NFS-F50" Those African American dudes singing along made it super fun xD

This was the best Need for Speed by FAR.

Also tied with Burnout 3: Takedown, these two games are the best arcade racers ever made.
