Need for Speed: Rivals
Decent game... for 2 weeks
Let me begin by saying that NFS: Rivals was pretty enjoyable for the first couple of weeks. I say this because that is how long it takes to beat the game playing only about 2 hours a day. An average gamer could breeze through this game and finish both the racer and cop story lines. The gameplay itself is enjoyable (about as good as Most Wanted) and the graphics are nice, but this game has some large downsides. The main complaint I have is how short the game was and the low replayability it has. Once you finish, collecting all the cars just becomes a hassle and isn't enjoyable. The police are the most aggravating thing and in my opinion should be toned down to what they were in Most Wanted. There were times where I found myself driving for over an hour, the whole time being chased by police only to eventually get busted and lose all that time I put in. Overall, the game is above average for a little while, then almost immediately drops off to an unrewarding grind to get all the cars. I would recommend Forza 5 over this in a heartbeat.
Hot Pursuit & Most Wanted combined....
Its far more realistic drivability, scenic & environmental than the past nfs games... weather seems more real and is very enjoyable during gameplay. I like how you can be a cop or a racer... its a different kind of experience because with all these nfs games we are used to being the racer... but portraying a cop is satisfying. I do wish there were more vehicles in the racer section... the cars in-game are pretty much all the high end cars you almost never see in our real world. It would've been nice to see some tuner imports and more American muscle varieties that we see daily in our streets... And lastly, the ability to modify cars isn't as in-deph as I was expecting.... can't work on specific parts, add on specific parts or tune... which would've added on a more realistic feeling towards the game.. like for example, as a part of our hideout, we are able to dyno and tune our vehicle to how we want it and modify/ upgrade each an every part possible to gain the upper hand on going toe to toe vs the Police. I hope NFS evolves to become more realistic... but all in all, very different and worth every penny.
Wouldn't Waste My Money
The gameplay for this game is good. Not great. It's the same stuff as the last game with fewer cars. Yes, you can customize the cars, but there are severe limitations. The largest downfall I have with this game is the multiplayer. There is no way for you and your friends to just set up a match and race. you have to wander around the map, find the same point, and start a race. This only work a small percentage of the time though. After starting a race, the servers lag and don't keep up with the race going on. We've had numerous races where we all finish in the same place (all first, all last, etc...) The gameplay and graphics are great, but it's nothing we haven't seen before. I wouldn't buy this again or recommend this to anyone looking to play online with friends. It's a good singleplayer game with online open world capabilities. I bought this game to play multiplayer with friends online and this game doesn't deliver at all
love it its freakin awesome
the only problem i have is learning all the the stuff there is to do and the menu but the game play is awesome and so are the graphics
This is a great game for gamers of all ages; if you like racing games. Really fun. I can't stop playing it.
THIS DOES HAVE SINGLEPLAYER!!
Need For Speed Rivals was indeed designed for Online Multiplayer (All Drive). BUT. This DOES have single player. In order to play singleplayer, you go to the options menu, go to All Drive settings, and you can choose from Public Game, Private Session, Friends session, and Singleplayer. That simple. The game automatically connects you to a public game after you have completed the cop and racer tutorial to, of course, introduce you to the All Drive feature. And if one day your WiFi goes out, the game will automatically put you in Singleplayer. Anyways, this game overall is very great! Good job EA & Ghost!
This game is AWESOME!!!!!!
I'm gonna say this game is a lot more better than all the need for speed games!!! In fact, This game is Extremely Awesome and I would recommend this to anybody who plays a lot of Racing games!!!!
Fast paced action for Experienced Racers
This game is very cool. If you have this game or if you're getting this game you should try it out with a xbox 360 or ONE compatible steering wheel. It will give you a speed racer type of game play and put you more in the wheel of the vehicle. Otherwise using a controller is also good too. it has most of the standard controls of a typical racing game with a little extra. the speed of the cars is exhilerating. The power and fatality of a crash would have you on the edge of your seat trying not to tumble.The beatiful paint on the gorgeous graphics of the xbox one would make you not even want to drive knowing that the races you are about to perform will scratch the heck out of that car. The purring engines and the challenges you face will be the ride of your life. Gamertag>Truecleo<Xbox Live

PLEASE BE WARNED.
Worst NFS ever!!!
First of all, you must have a hard drive (not a flash drive) to even begin to play the game. You can't install it on a 4gb slim either. worst thing to incorporate into a game. Why can't they install the content on the disk when they make the game instead of making you install it or, for those without an appropriate hard drive, buy a new/bigger hard drive after paying for the game itself. Save yourself the trouble of buying this if you do not have a hard drive!!
