Summary: The game looks beautiful but I was a little disappointed with rivals in comparison to most wanted. In my opinion most wanted was the superior game. The ranking system to reach the number one spot and become the top driver was more enjoyable to me than rivals.
Summary: As great as the graphics and sound are, I simply cannot drive a car with a couple of buttons. If you can, nice game. Be aware this game does NOT support a steering wheel on the PS4 - a fact they should make very clear, but don't.
While I appreciated and enjoyed the graphical quality
15 August 2014
Summary: As a long time fan of NFS (I've been playing since NFS II on PC) this game proved difficult for me to play. While I appreciated and enjoyed the graphical quality, it still suffered from pop-in from time to time. I found the story lacking in depth and emotional draw.
Summary: I really wanted to like this game. I love Need for speed played them as a child, teenager, and adult (Underground ftw). This game is more like an open world racer. There really isn't a lineir gameplay. You drive around find a race you get stunned, rammed etc. It got old quick.
Summary: I'm a diehard fan of the NFS series ever since Porsche Unleashed and this game offers quite a lot of the old features like customizable decals on your car, open world racing, a somewhat good variety of cars, etc.
Summary: While overall I enjoyed this game there are some issues which reduce the overall game in my eyes. The pluses: Great graphics (mostly, see below), great sound, excellent design on the cars, the point system is enjoyable and gives you incentive to do tasks on the side to earn more.
Summary: The game is great the first week. Visuals are lush and gorgeous, which I think was the point in releasing this at PS4 launch. There's not a whole lot of substance beyond the detailed graphics however.
Summary: The game is fun but only for awhile. Sometimes I can't even play because the game doesn't connect to the EA servers. Also the campaign is not straight forward. In order to advance you have to complete 3 or 4 objectives which can seem impossible at times.
