  • 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.

  • Summary: " Need For Speed: The Run " isn’t quite a broken promise, more just a missed opportunity. With a 4 hour (maximum) single player, and some lacklustre challenges, even after some decent multiplayer this is not a great value game.
