Summary: This is a fairly good game with some pros and cons. Some of the pros are the racer mode is awesome, especially in hot pursuits. I like that you can work your way to be Seacrest County's most wanted racers. However, this game does take a long time to beat (several months) on either side- cop or racer. The graphics are very good. However, it's kind of cheesy when you get into an accident and all the pieces fly off and they all look the same.
Summary: This is in my opinion the best need for speed game yet i love the arcade style of the game but if your buying this for the iconic free roam then DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!! I personally hate the free roam but the missions are awesome. there is no storyline like past games but there are 2 campaigns Racer and Cop so if you like need for speed then buy this game(unless you want a good freeroam.
Summary: So I've been playing NFS games since Porsche unleashed back in the day, so I know a thing or two about the franchise in addition to being extremely thorough when looking at a product analytically with minimal bias. So let's get started, since carbon and shift I thought Need for Speed fell off as the games were just not interesting and lacked stick-to-it-tiveness required to satisfy and justify the price point, not to mention the amount of time one would have to commit in...
Summary: I returned NFS:Hot Pursuit the day i bought it. I thought it would be an amazing game i was very very wrong. The controls for this game are horrible i don't think i have ever played a game with this bad of controls. I would not recomend this game to anyone, it is a waste of money don't buy it!
Summary: I've been playing Need For Speed all of my life. This entry in the series marks the downfall of the franchise as a whole. Customization, one of the series' trademarks, has been completely eliminated from the game. Criterion basically took Burnout Paradise's driving engine and built a new environment and cars around it. This is possibly the most miserable excuse for a racing game i have ever played.
Summary: Ive played all the series and this 1 is the WORST, i can honestly say the series is DESTROYED with COMMERCIALISM, there is NO STORYLINE, NO APPEAL, GRAPHICS ARENT ALL THAT, and WORST of all YOU GET BOMBARDED WITH FLASHY SCENES & SOUNDS & NO GAME BEHIND ANY OF IT, it actually gets ANNOYING ITS ALL GARBAGE & HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT MAKES A GAME FUN
