CD-Mag rates NFS: PU with 90%
Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed keeps scoring high. This time CD-Mag wrote a review about their thoughts on this game. The conclusion of their review says it all:

"Overall, Porsche Unleashed is a fantastic game. It delivers everything the racing fan could ever hope for; great physics and tracks, beautiful graphics and sound, and a shell thatís more interesting than "come in first on each track to unlock more tracks and cars." Itís all wrapped in the typical Electronic Arts high-gloss package (both literally and figuratively)."

NFS: PU review at gamespot
Read what Gamespot has to say about NFS: Porsche Unleashed in their review about the game. Here's a part of it:

"Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed strays from several conventions previously established by the popular arcade-style exotic-car racing series. For one thing, like its name suggests, Porsche Unleashed features automobiles exclusively from one manufacturer. What's more, the game has a more detailed, more realistic driving and physics model than its predecessors, though the game's realism is scalable. And while Porsche Unleashed has a few minor shortcomings, it nevertheless stands as the most ambitious game in the series since the original. As such, it'll more than likely make you love the Porsche on the off chance you don't already.

Op-sports' review of NFS: Porsche Unleashed
At Operation sports you can find another review of the latest NFS series title, NFS: PU. Op Sports awards the game with a score of 93% and conclude their review with:

"All in all, PU is not only one of the best in the series, but one of the best racing games out right now. It has something for everyone with a more forgiving arcade mode, multiplayer support, career mode and the ability to practice in every mode. Graphics and sound are second to none with some real improvements here. Highly-recommended!

    Dailyradar reviews NFS: Porsche Unleashed
    One of the first to review the latest title in the Need for Speed series is Daily Radar. Check out their review to find out if you should buy the game (if you haven't done that already...).

    "When EA announced that its anticipated multiplayer tribute to classic car-monkeying Need For Speed: Motor City was being postponed and that a Porsche-themed Need For Speed was forthcoming, a lot of fans figured this was a cheap cash-in, more like an add-on to last year's excellent and successful NFS: High Stakes than an evolution of the series. In fact, hardcore car nuts were expecting that EA would probably rest on its laurels and continue to ignore the numerous complaints about the arcadelike physics model that the game has typically used. These people are about to be very pleasantly surprised."
