  • Summary: Oh where shall I begin. The story was great. Nice plot, decent acting. The play, well, it's a bit annoying. No matter which car you choose, everything still passes you. Even cop SUV's! 220+mph Lambo? yep, the cop SUV's are still FASTER!?! There is a game mode called Battle, it's elimination, and the cops are always involved in these, and they stalk YOU like a fat kid stalks cake(I know, I'm a fat kid, lol). Not the other drivers, just you. VERY annoying.

This is NOT a must have game

  • Summary: Load time between races feels as long as the race itself; realism is almost cartoonish; not as many cars to choose from as past games; minimal...
  • Pros: Graphics; You never race the same route twice
  • Cons: Everything else

Need For Speed RUN Review

Alex Martinet, Amazon
11 December 2011
  • Summary: The last two Need for Speed tiles, Hot Pursuit and Shift, were considered more as spin-offs but have provided the best two racing games for the franchise. What The Run has going for it is that it returns to it's old-school NFS roots. Black Box develops the game this time, making it the first time they have returned to the Need For Speed franchise since creating and finishing Underground and Undercover series.

  • Summary: This is my very first review on Amazon. I was so disappointed by this game I felt compelled to warn others. I will start off with this: I am female and not a die hard gamer. I play games for entertainment and I'm not very competitive. I just want to have fun for a couple of hours. I pre-ordered NFS:The Run mostly because I have fond memories of other, older NFS titles (Most Wanted and Carbon). I was excited when I first put the game in. The graphics were nice.

  • Summary: Pretty boring honestly. The game itself isnt that fun to play, it's ok but it's weak. The races are short for the most part and the driving is ok a camera stays focused on your car through turns which is cool but NO WAY this game is worth $60. Breakdown Graphics-9.5 awesome graphics but unfortunately this is the best part of the game Replayability-4 there are challenges to unlock cars an other things but nothing major Physics (mechanics)- 2 it doesn't feel like you are...

Need For Speed - The Run - Slightly too Disappointing

  • Excerpt: "...there is always a new Need for Speed (NFS) game released, being quite a loyal fan since the days of Need for Speed Underground on Ps2 I’ve been hooked on the concept of racing expensive cars through open streets and customisation of your vehicles to create your ultimate personalised car. Unfortunately I’ve not since found an NFS game which offers everything NFS Underground 2 did and to this day I hold my breath that maybe the franchise can be as good ...
  • Pros: Good Story, Lots of Cars
  • Cons: Very little of what old NFS gmaes offer

  • Excerpt: "I've loved the Need for Speed franchise for quite a while, my favourite game being NFS: Shift. This game seemed to be fun initially, but after 2 hours, yes, 2 hours! I had completed the main story. The main story is just a race from San Fran to New York, nothing really exciting about it. It's repetitive, it's basically on every race "Overtake 10 people" "Overtake 5 people" "Win the race" It's just not got any initiative in it, but it can still be ...
  • Pros: Quite a lot of fun, great graphics .
  • Cons: Very, very short .  Frustrating .
