  • Excerpt: Instead of ushering itself in with a sprint, Need for Speed The Run began with a stumble when the first portion anyone saw when the game was revealed at E3 was an on-foot quick-time event. Later we were assured that these QTE moments were only 5% of the game.

17 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The Run's attempt to bolt incidental set-pieces and a narrative onto Need For Speed's familiar brand of arcade racing is a patchy and frustrating affair.

Nintendo-Online
21 December 2011
  • Summary: Electronic Arts steht wie kein anderes Videospiel-Unternehmen für Regelmäßigkeit und Neuauflagen. Neben Fifa, Harry Potter, NHL und Co. gehört auch die „Need for Speed“-Serie zu den immer wieder mehr oder weniger neu erfundenen Reihen.
