New Gamer Nation
26 December 2013
  • Conclusion: This means that if you already have a PS4, then you’ll probably buy it on that system anyways. For those of you that have a PS3, plan getting a PS4 in the future, and aren’t sure if you should wait or not, the answer is that if you care about graphics, then wait.
  • Pros: +Looks Beautiful, +Native 1080p
  • Cons: -FPS locked at 30, -No Difference from PS3

  • Conclusion: Rivals serves as a refinement of ideas and principles established over the last three iterations of Need for Speed. This can lead to a feeling of sameness bleeding over Rival’s rough edges while also serving as a condensed interpretation of the series' better ideas.

  • Pros: Exciting mix of pure driving, aggressive maneuvering, and using technology, Seamless integration of single- and multiplayer brings world to life, Terrifically tempting risk-versus-reward mechanic for racers, Gorgeous visuals
  • Cons: Conspicuous AI rubber-banding

  • Pros: Lots of freedom, Elegant online integration, Gorgeous visuals, Great separation between cops and racers.
  • Cons: The lack of organised and structured multiplayer, Lots of re-used elements from previous instalments.

  • Summary: Imagine, if your mind will conceive it, the debauched threeway coupling of Hot Pursuit, High Stakes and Most Wanted while all high on Burnout Paradise, and you're about up to speed with Need for Speed: Rivals - the twentieth incarnation of EA's seminal, but slightly off form racing series.
  • Pros: Sublime visuals, Redview County is wonderfully mapped, AllDrive, when it works, is excellent
  • Cons: Woeful plot, EA's servers are troublesome at launch, Racer campaign can be frustrating
