Before you proceed to the career itself you will have to complete a rather short, but very intriguing prologue section. You will be granted with a lot of FMV's along the way. They will help to understand the whole concept of the presented career. At first, you will have to take part in a few races. You start off inside one of the fastest cars of the game - a tuned BMW M3 GTR. Don't let yourself get too comfy, because you will lose this car in a few minutes. Don't worry, this was all planned. Thankfully, you shouldn't have any problems completing the following racers. Furthermore, don't forget about the restart option. It will enable you to repeat the race from the start without any other repercussions.
A very dynamic cut-scene should appear on your screen (#1). Get ready, because you will take control of your car in a few seconds. Don't worry too much, because you will only have to go through several corners (#2). After that, you will receive a text message. Delete it (you don't even have to read it), because you will repeat this race from the start in a few minutes.
Another cut-scene should appear shortly. I won't be telling you anything about the main plot of the game, because it would be best to find about everything on your own. I will concentrate my efforts on the following races. At first, you will have to take out a single opponent in a rather simple sprint (you only have to reach the finish line, without completing any laps). Watch out for the difficult left turn (#1). You should encounter it in a couple of seconds. I would recommend braking hard. Once you've taken the corner use the nitro to get back to your usual speed. Be sure to keep the lead at all times. You will also notice some arrows along the way (#2). They will be pointing you the correct direction. Be sure to cut through some of the last corners.
A new movie will introduce you to some of the most important drivers of the game. Mia will help you achieve new victories, Razor on the other hand is considered to be one of the most skilled drivers in the neighbourhood (#1). You will have to take him out at the end of the Career mode. A new race is waiting for you. Just as before, it's not that hard, so you shouldn't worry about it too much. You will probably notice two things. First of all, you will be encountering some traffic along the way. Thankfully, it's not that thick. The second important thing involves the presence of the police forces (#2).
You will find some tips on how to deal with the police later in this guide. Now you should only concentrate on reaching the finish line. You have to be careful, because the track is very narrow at some points. It also has some difficult corners (#1). Remember to use your brakes wisely. You can also use the Speedbreaker feature which will enable you to take them in a much more precise way. You should be able to win this sprint without any major complications. A new race will start after that. This time you will be racing during the day and with several other cars (#2).
The first difficult corner has been located near the start line (#1). You should use your brakes in order to get through it safely. Remember that you have a lot of nitro at your disposal. You can use it in order to leave your opponents behind. Remember that the nitro bar regenerates faster if you're in the lead. Another challenging point involves driving into a small tunnel. Be sure not to hit anything (#2). Thankfully, the traffic is very small at this point.
The last segments of the lap will require you to pass through several corners. Don't worry if you hit a lamppost along the way (#1). You may destroy these type of objects without dealing with any negative effects. Furthermore, it's wise to do it in some of the police chases. This time you will have to complete two laps. After that, new movies will begin to appear. Get ready because the race with Razor is next (#2)!
First of all, you should know that you won't be able to win this race in any way. I will give you more information on that shortly. After the start I would recommend picking the right passage (#1). If you chose the left one Razor would probably be able to take the lead. Some of the police forces should join this race in a few seconds. You have to avoid their cars at all costs. Get ready, because there are more difficult corners nearby (#2). Use your brakes wisely and place your car in the right spot, so you may accelerate faster after leaving the corner. Don't worry about Razor's car at this point of the race. Like I said, he will win no matter what you do.
You will be encountering some checkpoints along the way (#1). You might want to destroy them when the time is right. Furthermore, you will receive some additional points for that if you are taking part in a police chase. You should receive a text message shortly. Mia will inform you that Razor's guy have messed up in your car. As a result, the BMW will have to make an unscheduled stop (#2) and you'll lose it to Razor. Don't worry, you will be able to win it back at the end of the Career mode.
