Summary: EA Black Box is back into the driving seat for "The Run". At first I was excited because for the first time ever you were outside of your vehicle. However it wasnt all good, when you leave your car it is interupted by dumb quick time events which arent quick at all, time slows down and they tell you what button 2 press. The cars are great and there are many of them but its not the same Need For Speed we always loved for being fast.
Summary: Short version I pre-ordered the run. I like the need for speed series a lot. This game is absolute garbage. Run now. Don't look back. Do not buy this game. Multiplayer is a joke. Its frozen my ps 3 I don't know HOW MANY TIMES. Sometimes, it will just keep "looking for a game" until you quit the game entirely. Do not buy this game unless you like a short story mode that is weak as hell and useless(out of car is not what they said it would be). This game is such crap.
Summary: I got this game from Best Buy on black Friday for $30. So I'm not so upset. If I had payed the full price of $59.99 then I would be pretty mad. This game is weak! I'm a huge fan of NFS and this one was a BIG let down. The ONLY thing that I can say is good about this game are the road effects. You can see the dirt blow on the road as you are racing through. I think it's actually a pretty good effect. But besides that, the game lacks a lot from the other NFS games.
Summary: Hello, I wanted to offer a mature critique (I am 56-years-old...known as 'mrGramps' on the PlayStation network)for this game so as to give an overview about the "issues" in this game. 1). The cars do not accelerate properly, or not at all. Very few will accelerate properly or ever get up to top speed in the "Story Mode". You are constantly fighting against the game as if there is a "governor" preventing the cars from performing.
Summary: Graphics - 10/10, Sounds 10/10 - And that's all the recognition this trash deserves. Do not buy this title, waste of money. Every car handles like a boat. There are so many unreasonable resets when driving on a dirt shoulder and sometimes you can crash into a bus going 200 and no "rewind", you just keep going. Not sure what's up with that.
Summary: Bought the game Saturday Night 11/19/11 - 4 hours later I am watching the credits screen. The game was too short. The resets are set so bad that on turns that you should be able to make resets and makes you start over again, The ending race you could literally sit idle for 5 minutes straight for the first part of game and then pick up controller the game makes the racer slow down so you can catch up...there is not control of when you get out of the car .
Summary: Drive across the USA in a seemingly endless series of unsatisfying but (thankfully) brief point-to-point races against a bunch of anonymous competitors who have seriously overdosed on rubber-banding, while driving a car whose performance and handling is marginal at best, and just broken at worst (like being drawn in by some mysterious force to collide with an obstacle despite all efforts steer around it).
