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. Also maybe its just me but most wanted had better menus and layouts making things a lot more clear. Rivals felt a bit confusing and not as intuitive as most wanted.
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.
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. HOWEVER, the game is pretty short, when you are in a chase the players who are cops can bust you easily.
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. The negatives: Some really bad glitches (getting caught in rocks, the game resets like you crashed and then you're still inside a rock), the cop challenges are too easy and the racer too hard...
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. Gameplay is rather monotonous after the initial week and the so-called open world I found pretty limited. I've logged about 45 hrs and I think I'm close to retiring the disc. Doing the math, there are better gameplay to price ratios out there...at least for me.
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.
