Need For Speed: The Run

AV Club
28 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The objective of Need For Speed: The Run is compelling: Finish first in a 200-driver, 3,000-mile road trip from San Francisco to New York City, à la the 1981 movie The Cannonball Run . The game opens with the star, Jack Rourke, trapped inside a vehicle as it’s being lowered into a junkyard crusher, his hands duct-taped to the steering wheel. After a series of frantic button-presses, Rourke wriggles free of the deathtrap and sprints for his life.

Police-dodging street racing game sends the wrong message.

Common Sense Media
18 November 2011
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Need for Speed: The Run is a street racing game that places a lot of emphasis on dodging the police. There are even some scenes in which the police go so far as to send in helicopter units that shoot machine guns at the player but the unwavering message is to continue playing and avoid law enforcement. This game glamorizes the illegal sport of street racing and has little to no positive messages.

Expert Review

Official Nintendo Magazine
3 December 2011
  • Excerpt: The Need For Speed series has seen more revamps than Gok Wan, and this year's title changes things up yet again by setting its entire story mode across one long race. The race in question is The Run, which goes from one end of the US to the other, and sees you start in 150th place and fight your way to first while performing other tasks - like evading police and taking out goons - along the way.

  • Conclusion: Jos jotain autopelisarjaa voi nimittää sarjaksi, niin se on EA:n Need for Speed. Nuorin vesa - The Run - ammentaa ideansa suoraan kaahailuelokuvien kruunaamattomasta klassikosta kanuunankuularallista ja sen modernista oikean elä ...
  • Pros: Vauhti ja vaaralliset tilanteet, Vaihtelevat radat

Need for Speed: The Run

nintendo-lan.de
5 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Need for Speed: The Run ist nicht gerade ein Stern an dem Racer Firmament. Die Grafik auf der Wii wirkt altbacken, auf dem 3DS hat sie immerhin ein paar nette Effekte zu bieten, die Autos unterscheiden sich zu wenig und das Fahrverhalten erlaubt weniger Taktik als Mario Kart, und das ist keine Übertreibung. Auf der Wii wird zumindest der Splitscreen Modus ein wenig Spaß machen, auf dem 3DS ist The Run ein nettes Rennspiel zum Mitnehmen.

Need for Speed: The Run

Eyes on Nintendo
22 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Mit Nunchuk oder Classic-Controller an die Wii-Fernbedienung angeschlossen findet man sich schon im Menü wieder, in welchem man einen von mehreren Modi auswählen kann. Entscheidet man sich für den The Run-Modus, welcher den Story-Modus darstellt, findet man sehr schnell heraus, wie das Spiel zu seinem Namen kam. Aufgabe ist es hier, an einem Rennen teilnehmen, das quer durch Amerika verläuft.

Need for Speed the Run

wiidsfrance.com
18 November 2011
  • Conclusion: S'il ne fallait qu'un mot pour décrire Need for Speed the Run sur Wii ce serait moyen. Tout dans ce jeu est moyen. Il n'est pas foncièrement mauvais, on peut passer de bons petits moments dessus, mais on n'y reviendra pas comme on peut le faire pour un Mario Kart par exemple. Entre des décors pas folichons, un unique mode de jeu, et l'absence de jeu en ligne, on se retrouve avec un jeu déjà dâté à peine sorti. Dommage.
  • Pros: Jouer à 4 en local.
  • Cons: L'absence de Wii Wheel., Les séquences de QTE.
