Need for Speed: The Run
this game is so awesome i think everyone into cars should get this game sooner or later. i love this game so much
Should be good
ok first of all, the Need for Speed series is pretty cool. The Hot pursuit was pretty good but wasnt has i had hoped. In this latest installment, the cops will actual shoot at you. this is amazing! take the good customization of the need for speed series and then add gunfire and you will have a killer game
Best Racing Game I've Ever Played
The only reason I think this is because I don't play a lot of racing games. I do think it is better than what most people rated it, but that's their opinion not mine. I really do like the cars they put in this & other NFS games.
WE DONT GET EXCLUSIVE CARS!?!?!?
I just looked at Playstaion 3's version and it said that they will get 7 exclusive cars along with the limited edition content! Including a Lexus, a Bugatti, a Koenigsegg, and much more?!?! And we dont get them! The Lexus L-FA is my favorite car and it would make me very upset if I never got to drive it.
Great idea but please
This need for speed game looks like a great idea. And i will say that it cool how they added the little mini games and stuff. Uk like in the gameplay footage where your running on top of buildings with guns going off next to you and your in a race for your life. But with all that said im still disapointed. Need for speed franchise has basically been a letdown for a while now for one reason. You cant customize your car no more. Need for speed need to do like the old Midnight club 3 game did. You could get any kind of car from cadillac to hummer to ferarri and trick it out however you wanted. You could make it a speed demon. Or you could make it for looks. I had a hummer on that game one time with 22 in wheels bright pink with purple body and green tint windows. Hidrolics. all that fun stuff. And ya it was all pointless. But it was entertaining. Now in racing games all you can do with cars is buy them and race them. And thats it. Then once you finish the story your done. I want customization. And so does the rest of your fans. Please
With Micheal Bay helping EA on this title you may expect a more in-depth storyline. EA bought out Porsche licensing, and the Frostbite engine to improve the graphics. With gameplay much like NFS: Hot Pursuit. It will be a title much like that, just with a different car selection, realistic map(s), and a storyline. The Autolog feature is back in this title, for rival modes. EA is trying to deliver the edge in racing, as they do arcade-style racing better than simulation racing. This will be another title I rent before buying as NFS: HP, became really boring and dull, really fast. Not hating on EA or NFS, but they don't have the edge they once did with the "tuner" racing games, i.e. carbon, most wanted, undercover, underground and underground 2. In this title you will be racing from Cali to New York in an attempt to finish first, having the cops on your tail, along with heart racing roads to keep the edge and deliver a "good" racing game.
Not Even a Rental
I have been a need for speed fan since the series started. Ive played every entry in the long standing racer and as it stands, the runs is in last place. My first issue with this game? The control. Not the control scheme, thats fine, its how the cars handle. There like tanks! I own a 1998 Durango that tirns corners better than most of the purpose built RACING MACHINES! Speaking of racing machines, why can mob suvs loaded with ticked off gunmen out race my Audi R8? And for that matter, how does a nissan 370Z keep up with a pagani? The ballance issuse are not that big of a deal, i mean how exiting would it be if you could just blow away all the competition, but the horrible handling is not at all excusable. The second problem i have is how short the game is. I beat this game in three hours. THREE! I guess its probably a good thing due to the fact that if it was longer It would have just prolonged my suffering. In conclusion, unless you are such a massive NFS fan that you cant possibly miss a single title in the series, NFS the runs is best avoided.
Yawn... bring on NFS. Underground 3 thats what i want large amounts of parts,cars,neons,bodykits that dont come in a whole set i want interchangeable everything,Races on streets NO more pro,BORING.
Give This one a Chance..
I've only played two Need For Speed games: Hot Pursuit 2 (2002) and Hot Pursuit (2010). The reason I didn't play any NFS games between 2002-2010 is because I was just a young kid at the time, and not really a gamer. But ever since I got my Xbox 360 (2010 Christmas present) I've been real interested in gaming, and this series. But, don't give up on "The Run." Sure, from what I'm hearing the past NFS games haven't been great. But I think EA is waking up. In a producer Q&A, it was confirmed that one of the main reasons they chose Frostbite 2 was for the destruction. Hopefully we can catch a glimpse of that in upcoming trailers. Overall, I like the storyline, and the gameplay doesn't look over-the-top arcade-ish like Hot Pursuit was, but something in between arcade and sim racing. And I can see why EA and Blackbox made the decision to allow you to control your character when he's out of the car. They want to add some innovative gameplay. Hopefully EA and Blackbox don't set their focus to heavily on that feature, because without racing, its obviously not NFS. This isn't a game I would pre-order, I would wait to see reviews after it comes out.
(WARNING ANGRY GAMER WRITING REVIEW) "The Run??? A race across America? That sounds fun." O WAIT!! you cant customize your car AT ALL!? U have to pull into a "gas station" to change ur car and ccan only do this one every 3 or 4 races?? The out of car free running parts are simply basic button mashing segments and there are only 3 or 4 of them?! This game felt very much like a game of high speed pinball. The driving felt very stiff most of the game and if u so much as poke another car it may send u flying in the other direction. I found my self nearing the end of the game and no longer enjoying my self. I spent the last hour of game play playing only because i didnt want to return an unbeaten game! I would not reccomend this game to my worst enemy! If u must play this game.....DONT! Good luck.
