If you are familiar with other Need For Speed games, then you know that the franchise has taken into many different directions over the years. NFS: The Run tries to take the game back to its original points, but also tries to introduce new elements into the game. Some of the classical elements like doing illegal stuff and being chased by cops hold true.
In this NFS game, you play as a character named Jack. Jack owes a mob a lot of money, and decides to join this race, which if we wins, will grant him the money to pay off his debts. The plot is very interesting, and it keeps the player entertained.
You zip through various terrains racing other people in an attempt to get first place. The visuals in this game are amazing, as it is quite an adrenaline rush being chased by cops while speeding like no other. The varied environments make each race feel different. There are different race types to choose from, but I feel like there could have been more race types.
I feel like this game sometimes gets repetitive very quickly, as I feel like I do the same thing over and over again. At a few points of the game, I felt like this wouldn't last very long in entertainment value. But if you find the interest to beat the game, you will be disappointed to see that there is not much to do once you are done.
Overall, I think this game was fun. I have been a fanboy with the Need for Speed series for as long as I can remember, and I am not majorly disappointed in this game. Sure, it did have its tedious moments, but it was overall an enjoyable experience.
