  best game of the year :)

| | See all bbjdfdhdhjh's reviews (1)

this game will probably be the best game of the year. i haven't got it but i will and the options are incredible. i tried to get the demo but it wasn't available. forget fifa 11 and f1 2010 this will be the best game of the year. ive got every trailer and it sounds mind-blowing. also the new option of cop v racer is cool. the arsenal of weapons is not huge but still very good. a must-buy for nfs fans. go nfs!

brilliant game unless you have no mates like some of those below me.soundtrack is changeable too. your mates times are put on the speedwall and you try to beat them, really addictive and good online too. add me, frip_ is my ps3 id.i honestly wonder what games these muppets who review this are playing. maybe nfs on ps1.who knows, not them and not me for sure.

  Its good to see Black Box are Out, but still too easy

| | See all Deviloffuel's reviews (32)

We all know that since Black box took over after Underground, the games have been pretty shocking at the best of times, this new one however, is made by Criterion games (Burnout).

First, the noise: It's immense, this game wants your ears melted.
Second, the drifting: Brilliant, so easily controllable, you can drift for miles at a time
Thirdly, the Cars: Some good metal in here, but none of the cars feel particularly fast (The Veyron especially).

Big drawbacks?
The soundtrack that comes with the game... Holy hell, it's dreadful
The AI racers, not clever.
The cops, way too easy to outmanoeuvre
The camera views, also awful, with no cockpit view anymore (sadface)

To be fair to Criterion, they've done much better than Black Box ever could, but it's still no racer, if you want an arcade racing game, your money is better off on split second and the like.

If you want a serious racing game, GT5 is out, get that
At least Criterion have convinced me to see what the next NFS title they'll do is =)

I've played the game but was hoping to build a car like you did in the other's, but still a perfect game!

  Buy this game it is stunning !!!

Lets get one thing straight, Spangle below has obviously no idea what makes for an amazing gaming experience, need for speed hot pursuit is without doubt the best arcade racer to date,forget burnout paradise and split second of which i own both,this is so much better and more fun,i defy anyone to have a go on this and drive the bugatti veyron and not be immediately hooked,the cars even sound like the real thing and that veyron handles like a dream.

You cannot just play a game like this for 3 hours and say it is boring,once you start unlocking all the extras like cars,spike strips,emp,radar jammers,helicopters and the best one of all for the racer cars,the turbo's which can all be levelled up, i have the level 2 turbo and believe me when you get on a straight and let rip with that it makes you feel like your face will be ripped off with the speeds your travelling at,also the sound especially in 5.1 dolby of those turbo's being used is nothing short of mind blowing.

So to finish,please buy need for speed if you like amazing game play and fun and astonishing visuals with utterly incredible sound to go with it,i know GT5 is out this week and it will be amazing i am sure,but will it be as much fun as this game? i think not, Criterion are an amazing dev team and deserve every honour for creating this masterpiece of gaming nirvana. Buy it 10 /10 Best arcade racer ever created.

  No idea what Spangle below is on about!

This game is amazing, fantastic graphics and intense gameplay. I bought this and will buy gran turismo as well - but this is stunning - it wont be 20 pounds in a few weeks - the crashes are stunning and the online is perfect. Brilliant, buy, buy, buy!
