Rating Summary: This is an action racing game in which players compete in a high-stakes coast-to-coast event across North America. As they speed through U.S. cities, players can crash into other vehicles, including police cruisers; players are sometimes rewarded for these crashes. Collisions are highlighted by slow-motion effects, crashing sounds, and flying debris. During some races, players must avoid machine gunfire from rival drivers or police helicopters. Players can also engage in close-up and extended fights that are completed by pressing button sequences corresponding to on-screen prompts (e.g., head-butting and kicking officers.). In one cutscene, the camera pans slowly across a female character's posterior as a male character looks on. The words “sh*t,” “b*tch,” and “a*shole” can be heard in the dialogue.
