NFS Needs a good rest. Abit like Assassins creed.

Tell me about it. Which one is this again? Didnt one just come out?

I'm not even following it anymore, its all just a blur of releases that seems to come out every 6 months.

I'm sure its not that often. I told you, Im not following it.

Close. It's a yearly release like AC and COD.

I dont think Rival have what it takes to compete with GT,FORZA,GRID,PROJECT CARS,DIRT but it is better than Critierions 2 disasters. Hotpursuit/Mostwanted. now if only Ghostgame studio leave out the drifting as in burnout we'll have a re-born NFS. Im looking forward playing RIVAL.

Disasters? They were as high rated as the series classics. Hot pursuit was amazing most wanted needed a bit more but was still great. Or you may be one of those tools whom are butthurt because they can't pimp out a civic. But no they were far from disasters.
GT67  +   954d ago
yes!! Disasterous compare to blackbox studio HOTPURSUIT 2,UNDERGROUND 1 & 2 also compare to the first 7 NFS on ps1
I play NFS daily with some buddies we all hated!!! criterion version reminded us of profu'king streets lame. now the graphic was awesome. but they both reminded us of BURNOUT which neither of us like. guess you can say we are die hard ps2 NFS fans. i rather have Blackbox studio up grade HOTPURSUIT 2 graphic in the liking of rival,hotpursuit,mostwanted

Disaster ? those were the only NFS worth playing this console generation
USMC_POLICE  +   953d ago
To each his own I guess I still play hot pursuit on PS2 almost once a week and I also bought a gamecube just for the version as well. I also played the hell out of my ps1 copy and still owned that and I loved the new hot pursuit but I also love burnout so idk.

This is the most impressive and more importantly, fun looking next gen racing game in my opinion.

I hope Rivals is good. I just wish for a proper sequel to NFS: UG, and NFS: MW.

With you know, in-depth customization? I do hope another Midnight Club comes next gen though.

To me 'Rivals' looks exactly the same as 2010 Hot Pursuit.
Sarobi  +   954d ago
I haven't been too thrilled with any of the NFS games as of the last couple of years.. I'm hoping this turns out to be great.

Get back to the basics of hot girls and a cheesy story, until then I will not purchase another NFS EA! The best NFS games this gen to me were the original NFS Most Wanted by Black Box not the new Criterion one, I also loved Carbon. The cheesy plots were what made those NFS games during the late PS2 to early this gen successful, enjoyable and a must buy for me and others at launch, once they got rid of that with these newer games the appeal of NFS wore off to that of a simplistic arcade racing game=boring.

I know this game will
Be good because this game is develop by Criterion Games They are Master in this genre
Skate-AK  +   954d ago
It's not made by Criterion. EA's Ghost Games is making it.
GT67  +   954d ago

not this time Criterion said they not making racing games anymore GHOST GAMES STUDIO took over.

at lease for now.

All I want is 60fps and story. Given this, I will try not to care too much about customization.

Forget NFS, I am waiting for Forza Horizon 2!
