t's called The Run. An illicit, high-stakes race across the country. The only way to get your life back is to be the first from San Francisco to New York. No speed limits. No rules. No allies. All you have are your driving skills and sheer determination as you battle hundreds of the world's most notorious drivers on the country's most dangerous roads. In Need for Speed The Run, you'll weave through dense urban centers, rocket down icy mountain passes and navigate narrow canyons at breakneck speeds, all the while evading a relentless police force prepared - and willing - to use lethal force to take you down.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Disappointing, but nowhere near as bad as HP After seeing the commercials for The Run, I thought "WOW! I need this one!" Then I remembered that I'd had that SAME EXACT THOUGHT with Hot Pursuit. That gargantuan disappointment needed to have been advertised. My best guess as to why the Wii versions of HP and Run have much lower ratings is because they're very light versions of the other versions. Why they didn't just make two separate games (Hint: Nitro and Shift were separate, and look at Nitro's rating) to keep ratings up? I digress. I bought The Run just a few days ago and I had to say that I was hooked. It definitely needed to be a bit longer in some aspects, but there were also very frustrating parts (such as the mission where I had to take out 16 mobsters before the finish line, which I barely was able to do). Some of the Challenges are downright tougher than they need to be, even the Expert and Master ones. Others were made immensely easier by finishing The Run first. I'm a fan of the mid-era of NFS, where the cars could actually be upgraded, not just visually customized, so I feel that I'm not going to be playing NFS as much in the near future, mainly because my laptop is terrible and I only have a Wii.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!! I love racing games, and this is by far the best one I've ever played. I love the handling of the cars, the story line is great, it's challenging but not too tough, and even the music is good! (Usually the music is one of my least favorite parts of the games). I would recommend this to anyone who likes racing games.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from This game is not family friendly. The graphics of this game are worse than NFS Most Wanted or Nitro. It only allows one person to have a profile. Everyone in the house would have to use the same profile. It uses a comic strip for the story line. You can only customize vehicles used for multi-player not for the single player game. Also, you can only use the remote/nunchuck or classic controller. Not any of the steering wheels, not even the Logitech one from NFS Undercover.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as advertised I did something I never have done. I pre-ordered this game. I was so excited based on the online advertising videos, which I THOUGHT represented the game I was purchasing. When I received it for the Wii I loaded it and was finished in 4 hours! Not ONCE did I see any of the cut sceens, I never flipped my car onto the rail road tracks, and never once had to kick open the window of the car or jump across roof tops. I am VERY dissapointed and this is the first time I want my money back. DO NOT BUY unless you have NO expectations.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst of the worst This game was the saddest excuse for a game. Ever. Its worse than Hot Pursuit, and Hot Pursuit was terrible. At least Hot Pursuit had the Hundred v. One mode. No customization, little challenge, poor handling, and lies everywhere. Did you know, that eery game review magazine or site has it listed as a completely different game? The story was terrible. I own every NFS game in the library, even the PS1 games, and this is the worst. Save your money, ask for a PS3, and get that one. It's cheaper, better, has more cars than the others, and if you're lucky, you can find a limited edition version from gamestop, origin, or Best Buy i believe it is which gives you even more cars and tracks. I cannot urge how much you shouldn't buy this game for the wii.
