Need for Speed Review


Need for Speed is here, with fist bumps, drifting and a wide range of customisation. It's a game that feels different from previous titles, although whether that is a good or bad thing remains to be seen.

I personally found the handling to be a little off to begin with, although I soon got used to it. What I couldn't get used to though was the cringeworthy cutscenes, which almost put me off completely, however if you stick with it, there is a decent game underneath the hood, although I'm not sure it's one of the best in the series.

You can find out our full thoughts in the video review below and please remember to like and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more.

Pros

+ Lots of customisation
+ Ventura bay is expansive
+ Wide range of cars

+/- Online multiplayer feels hit and miss (though we need more time with it)

Cons

- Cutscenes are awful
- Handling feels a little off

You were really selling the game there Joe! Haha. It's as I thought though, was part of the Beta, looks like nothing really has changed, will be one I miss out on unless it goes really cheap as always online 'find your next race' type games annoy me - was playing underground on pic this week - miss that style, picking a race from a menu and racing it, none of this driving around faffing about - the only game I like in that style was burnout and that's because the city was full of npcs and the easy drop in/out of online mode

The cringeworthy cutscenes are what make need for speed need for speed that's what everyone was moaning about the franchise had gotten away from the games that were good like most wanted , I do agree with the handling though from when I played the beta and the early access I think your car has to be set up right for the different types of events with different tyres and adjusting the handling

The game was the crew. Reason for less traffic is the game is set at night, and reason for having to find races, its street style racing, races are sent by txt, or calls to prevent a police intervention. I bought this from shopto, even though reviews were saying it 5/10 but i think people have miss the point with this game. Bad think about this is the DMR always online, no reason for it

Sounds exactly like an original Need for Speed game. That's what I want, a bit of arcade racing. Need that with Forza, Drive Club et al saturating the sim racing market. Bring back the fun! Now I need Blur 2!

Driveclub is no simulation, it plays a bit like Project Gotham in my opinion, and I'd much rather play that than another NFS game with terrible rubber banding AI.
