One Sentence Summary

More like a need for more originality than need for speed

Game Overview

Graphics

I was dissapointed with the graphics as they do not seem to be any better than those in Need for Speed Most Wanted the last NFS game I played, I also dislike the shading and speed effects.

Sound

Probably the best aspect of the game as normal there is a good range of music tracks and the sound effects are of a high quality

Gameplay

It is an arcade style racer with a storyline, I found it to be virtually identical in how it played to Need for Speed Most Wanted with a few minor additions to the type of races/challenged

Learning Curve

Fairly short, once you get to grips with the controls the only challenge is to ensure your driving skills are up to par

Difficulty

Average difficulty

Lifespan

If you liked Need for Speed Most Wanted, you will probably find this has a long lifespan, but then again you may like me get fed up with it after a few hours and trade it in

Overall

A very average game, made worse by the fact it is simply a revamp of the first NFS for the 360 NFS: Most Wanted. This unoriginality is made worse by the comparison to the last EA arcade racing release Burnout Paradise which remains one of the best arcade racers for any format. I cant think of any feature of this game that makes it stand out from the other racing games on the 360. It also has the EA microtransaction feature where you essentially pay for cheats

Rating

1/5 – I would not bother with this title there are far better racing games and NFS titles on the 360 allready, would have been 2/5 but I reduced it by 1 due to the pay for cheats aspect
