  • Excerpt: The Run starts off in memorable fashion - with Jack Rouke being taped in his Porsche above a car crusher in a junkyard. After escaping that via a QTE, you find out that this is your playable character and that he’s on the run from the mob, who chase after him with machine guns in tow.

  • Conclusion: The story may be short, but the challenge series adds many more hours of fun into the game, and that's why i have rated the playability a 4/5.

About
29 December 2011
  • Summary: Need for Speed: The Run is a game with an amazing concept - a race across the U.S. - that we know can work since it has been used in other games and movies, but that concept is soured by story-related intrusions that turn the normally fun gameplay into something far less enjoyable.
