Need for Speed The Run

The Gamers Temple
12 February 2012
  • Excerpt: The buzz for this game was the apparent focus on a story. It was an intriguing concept to break away from the traditional progression of racing games. But ultimately it was too ambitious of an idea as this racing game doesn�t tread too far off the beaten path.

Need for Speed: The Run Review

DailyGame
11 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Need for Speed: The Run is organized essentially like a rally race, with players cruising as fast as they can across the United States of America while a timer tracks their overall progress as well as their rank in the 200-person competition. The “track,” as it were, is divided into stages of the country, each fo which is further divided into specific legs.

Need for Speed: The Run Review

PlayDevil
22 December 2011
  • 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. Chuck in some occasionally suspect handling and some pretty terrible LOD issues, and you have a game that whilst perfectly competent, and with some nice ideas, is not a patch on last year’s Hot Pursuit reboot.

  • Excerpt: You know, scientists have taught pigs to play computer games . Of course, they’re extremely rudimentary games – moving an object across a screen with a joystick, or pressing a button when a certain symbol appears on a screen, that sort of thing. While it’s no doubt very impressive for a pig, I can’t help but feel a little defensive as a gamer. Sure, the pig is interacting with a computer to get a reward, but it’s hardly Shogun 2: Total War , is it?
  • Pros: Fast and intense
  • Cons: Unforgiving

Console Obsession

  • Excerpt: EA Black Box are old hands when it comes to the Need for Speed series, having developed games in the series since way back in 2002, making seven games between then and 2008, with the series then being batted between Slightly Mad Studios (Need for Speed Shift in 2009) and Criterion (the people behind last year’s excellent Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit reboot).

Game Over Online

  • 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.

Need for Speed The Run Review

GamingTrend
28 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I remember a movie a long time ago called The Cannonball Run starring Burt Reynolds and Dom DeLuise. The plot featured a large number of drivers competing in a cross-country race, evading traffic, cops, and each other. When hearing of the plot of Need for Speed The Run, I couldn’t help but to think of how similar the premises are between the two. While I don’t remember The Cannonball Run being a good movie, I wondered if The Run would have some entertainment value.
