Advantages: Great Graphics, Good Frame rate, Well throughout storyline, Enjoyable concept
Disadvantages: Repetitive Game play, Story mode is too short
Need for Speed: The Run is the 18th game in the Need for Speed series it's developed by EA Black Box and Published by Electronic Arts. Need for Speed: The Run uses DICE'S Frostbite 2 engine.
You join a massive group of illicit and illegal street racers in a high stakes race across the United States of America.
Pros and Cons
Good Frame rate
Well throughout storyline
Repetitive Game play
Same tracks have been repeated and have been turned backwards which is disappointing
Excellent concept just poorly made
Story mode is too short
When this game first came out it really had me interested with the idea of joining a race across the United States of America. Most of us have heard of the Gumball race and might of even watched some of it. I like the idea of getting a supper car and gunning it across the states. Obviously racing on roads is illegal and would never do it in real life but that's why I enjoyed the idea of this game when it first came out so much.
This game has quite literary it's fast bits and it's slow bits. You have The Run Game mode which is the main storyline of racing across the United States this mainly winning the stages of sections between the cities you mainly race 10 opponents at each sections.
Then you have sections when you have to overtake an opponent in a time limit then it knocks out the opponent that you over took. Finally you have racing battles where you are racing one or two other opponents these are more like boss battles.
The game play has it's merits in the fact that it can be very enjoyable at times when you are racing down the highway you get a great feel for the game and the racing and wow at times you get a massive rush when racing down the highway or breaking just at the right point before a corner.
Then you have the bad parts the frustrating bits when you slightly go off the road and it resets you back to the last checkpoint or you crash and total your car. The thing about this game is it's such a great idea but it's very poorly been put together which is a shame.
The only break that you get from racing is interactive cut scenes when you have to button bash key time events this is not very good.
The storyline is not very good but to be honest you don't have very many cut scenes apart from the interactive ones mentioned above. The storyline is very basic at best.
It's a average racing game at the best of times, has good game play the graphics are good. But overall it's a disappointment and I don't recommend you to buy this if anything it's a rental.

Summary: A average racing game
