Need for Speed: The Run Review (PC)

Softpedia
3 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Need for Speed: The Run is a great game, with stunning visuals, polished gameplay, and lots of variety, but disappoints through the story that could have been much more exciting if the characters felt more alive or were explored in a more detailed manner. Still, with a decent campaign that has plenty of high points, with a top notch challenge series, and a multiplayer powered by Autolog, The Run will no doubt satisfy your virtual racing urges.

Need for Speed: The Run Review

  • Excerpt: Early on, there was a moment in Need for Speed: The Run that lined up perfectly. As I cut turns and broke my car in, traffic twirling around me, the Midwest landscape yawned to the horizon; my radio crackled “On the Road Again” by Canned Heat . This easing rush of Americana was eventually truncated, though, as The Run ’s unabashed momentum often stumbled from numerous trials and memorized errors.
  • Pros: Environmentally gorgeous, Attentive, natural controls, Arresting style
  • Cons: Fatigued ending, Stereotypical segments, Ludicrous plot

  • Excerpt: Most racing games flaunt their cars. They flaunt the insane amount of rides, how realistic they are and what it feels like to drive them.

  • Conclusion: Generally restrictive, too linear, the story is... well... missing, the whole thing ends too fast, AI can be dim, very frustrating reset system during races.
  • Pros: Looks great, awesome soundtrack, racing is sometimes challenging, multiplayer can be fun;
  • Cons: Generally restrictive, too linear, the story is... well... missing, the whole thing ends too fast, AI can be dim, very frustrating reset system during races.

  • Conclusion: Need For Speed: The Run may not unseat Gran Turismo and Forza 4 as a top tear driving/racing simulator, but the Hollywood-style presentation has a lot more charm going for it than I initially expected. Granted, it has a number of issues but like a Jerry Bruckheimer summer blockbuster, The Run is good, mindless fun. Racing purists may thumb their nose at it, but if you’re the kind of person who prefers Burnout over Gran Turismo, you’ll eat it right up.
