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
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.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Title says it all. The idea of the campaign mode is unlike any other Need for Speed game in the franchise, but the execution of the idea is horrible. The game is the most impossible/aggravating NFS yet. EA did good bringing in Michael Bay to help with the cinematics, but outside of the those, graphics and sound this game is horrible.
Play the game on easy and you'll think "Wow that was way to easy" go to normal and your liable to break a controller. Constant pursuits while your in the middle of a challenge on a 2 lane road. Yeah, I understand there are going to be pursuits, but after you ram the cop car 15 times into a wall and they continue to chase you it gets annoying.
Also on normal you can forget the fact that you have NOS because it's like the 1980's Nissan with a v6 is running faster than your car with NOS.
Like I said before the idea for the game is EXCELLENT, but as usual EA fails to execute on their ideas.
I played through the demo and the gameplay was spectacular from start to finish. I found that playing the game through normal difficulty was challenging but nothing I'm not used to. The second level in the demo was frustrating trying to avoid the fallen boulders however when you crash it looks more natural rather than show a crashcam of you crashing and the car stoping in its tracks. I like that the ability to use NOS is included in this game (I'm a BIG NFS: Most Wanted fan and loved wrecking police cars with NOS). The graphics are unbelievable and the fact that you can get off on foot is a cool concept. Cons: Didn't like that the demo file size was over a gig however the file size made more sense when I was actually playing the game. I noticed the car handling can be uneasy at times but quickly is resolved once you slow down. Overall, looks awesome and I'm probably going to buy it along with Halo CE: Anniversary!!
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NEVER BUY EVER!!!
Ok so at first I was stoked to hear this was coming out, because I'm a huge NFS fan (on lots of consoles, not just 360) and I went on my NFSWorld account to see the preview for this. It looked SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO boring. I decided I would not get it on PC. One day after doing my rounds (spamming and netflix) I went on the microsoft shop. I saw a demo and thought "hey I might as well test the game since the pre was terrible" So 1.2 GB of downloads later, I had a demo. I played it. And I will never play it again. Ok I will admit It wasn't two fair cause you only got 1 car for the demo XD, but the track was unimaginitave, which in this day and age is just unacceptable. Not only that, I was going as fast as my vehicle could go, and people kept passing me up (with no nitrous or anything). Then there was a huge turn. WORST HANDLING EVER OMG NEVER BUY THAT GAME!!!
It's alright I guess...
Honestly, the game is okay. Its the same as NFS: HP(Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit) with a different storyline. I wasn't much of a fan of HP since you couldn't really do anything to your car. I was always amazed being able to fix up the car how I wanted in all the older Need for Speeds instead of just changing the color and kit of a car. The game takes a good 30 seconds to a minute to load between races and when you"reset" which is what happens if you go even 5 feet off the track. I also didn't like the music they put in the game. Leveling is stupid- to be able to draft somebody you need to reach a certain level. It takes like 30minutes to get the required level you shouldn't need to reach a level to use NOS and draft people, it just doesn't make sense. If your looking for a game like Most Wanted, Underground, or Carbon, your going to be disappointed in this game. EA needs to stop worrying about making the best graphics ever and worry about gameplay. I recommend this game, but not for $60. Maybe more like $40 at most. Also- You can't even free roam in this game, at least in HP you could.
oh yea! this is more like it nfs!!
ok off top i think this game is going to be dope as ever.
i have to say i liked nfs shift 2 for a week at the most than everything just got boring & annoying. this is totally gonna top shift 2. this seems more like a nfs game. it's also crazy & awesome how fast they came up with this, i mean shift 2 just got released march & another nfs already? sweet!
i believe they've been working on this at the same time they were working on shift 2. i remember the makers of shift 2 saying, "if this isn't what they like, than we'll make changes." obviously this must be the changes & it is super dope.
I love how the story preview looks. So I take it , this game has an excellent story line, as well as gameplay. Traveling across the country trying to save your life, first one to make it to ny wins/gets something. The previews got me, and I'll be pre-ordering this.
This game looks so great.
