Need for Speed: The Run

14 November 2011
  • Excerpt: While Need for Speed’s release calendar has never slowed down, it’s been a full three years since we’ve seen a game from the main team at EA’s Black Box studio. Does this cinematic road trip have that new car smell or does it stink like a drive past a dairy farm? Jack Rourke’s in trouble with the mob. Big enough trouble to get himself nearly killed in a car crusher.

  • Summary: Firebrand Games might have previously unleashed a stinker on us with a certain NASCAR game, but with Need for Speed: The Run, the studio's proven that it's definitely still got what it takes to give us hours of portable racing enjoyment. While flawed in a few areas, the superb online experience and high speed action strapped into the little cartridge here packs enough thrills to satisfy any 3DS owner with an insistence for speed.

Need for Speed: The Run PS3 Review

15 December 2011
  • Excerpt: This year’s holiday Need for Speed ( NFS ) title has a lot to live up to after EA allowed the guys are Criterion Games to make the brilliant NFS: Hot Pursuit . Black Box has the task of trying to beat that, but their last NFS game was the somewhat disappointing NFS: Undercover .

  • Conclusion: Das Feature Autolog kennt man bereits von den stationären Konsolen. EA ist dabei bemüht, den Wettbewerb unter den Fahrern, genauer gesagt unter Freunden und Kontakten, zu intensivieren. Im Grunde genommen stellt es ein Tagebuch dar, welches Eure Leistungen registriert und in Echtzeit mit denen Eurer registrierten „The Run“-Kontakten vergleicht.

Need for Speed : The Run

11 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Need for Speed the Run ne révolutionne par les jeux de courses arcade sur 3DS, mais il apportera ce qu'on attend de lui aux amateurs du genre. Sa présentation sous forme de bande dessinée colle bien avec le format portable de la console, et l'effet 3D est bien rendu dans son ensemble. Pas désagréable, mais pas surprenant, Need for Speed the Run plaira aux fans et pourra intéresser ceux qui veulent découvrir la série sur 3DS.
  • Pros: L'autolog., La fluidité du jeu., Les musiques.
  • Cons: La faible durée de vie., Les séquences de QTE.

Need for Speed: The Run Review

11 May 2012
  • 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. In diesem Jahr rast der neuste Teil „Need for Speed: The Run“ über sämtliche Systeme und will diesmal mit einer packenden Story und einigen neuen Spielelementen überzeugen.
