Need for Speed: Rivals
Fun only if you have Xbox Live friends.
This game has a short story mode and the rest is just drivin' around with nothing to do. Even though it has AMAZING graphics and Frostbite 3, you kind of get bored of just driving around once you finish the short game.
As I bought this game, I thought it was gonna be a ripoff of most wanted 2012, which was awful. Of course, I was proven wrong (as usual). It looked like the generation after xbox one. Not just the graphics but the sound and the cars.
Awesome driving experience when u want fast!
I love the fact on XBOX Live you can connect to your computer and hear your own tunes when you are driving.
its a really good game but you have to understand how to play it and do the races. its kinda like need for speed carbon.
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!

PLEASE BE WARNED.
A Great Game Overall!
This game is great and in my opinion is so much better then the newest most wanted! Its probably one of my favorite games ever!
Really GREAT Game
This game stunned me. The environment lives with different weather, cops with dispatch calls and racers flying by. I thought this was going to be a bad game but NO! I can't stop playing it. My favorite game in a long time. Don't listen to other negative comments. Play with other people at your choosing. It will only lag if you have a bad connections. The VERY bad thing is, I like playing as a cop and I unlocked the patrol Lamborghini cop car and my game glitched ( this is what I think ) so now i only have 1 cop car can later on a red car with no lights.
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.
Addicting game/ Best Game EVER!
This game wowed me. I thought it would be a bad NFS game but no. It is the best game I've played in a LONG time maybe even the best game I've played. I play for hours trying to put the game down. Hearing the area of the criminal/racer is amazing with the thrill of being chased by cops. Switch to coops and call in helicopters or assemble road blocks. Most of the time you just say "cant trust 1 review" well i swear on my grave this is a GREAT GREAT GAME.
