Need for Speed Rivals: More of the Same?

The Need for Speed franchise is no longer what it used to be. Need for Speed games of the past used to be the video-game equivalents for anyone that was even slightly interested in zooming through the country-side at 200 miles per hour. Sadly, Need for Speed Rivals looks like it's going to be more of what we have already seen in the past.

Yeh the series needs a rest go back to its roots.

NioRide1800d ago

It did that with Hot Pursuit 2010.

Which I really loved.

RioKing1799d ago

^Well that makes one of us. The first Most Wanted was the best in the whole series (IMO) and I would buy a game just like that Day 1.

NioRide1799d ago

I like how people disagree, Did any of you actually play the old games? HP10 is the exact same game with shiny graphics.

Deceiver_Of_The_Gods1799d ago

I would really like to see an underground 3 with more "every day" cars and deep tuning rather than this shit , im really dissapointed

Megatron3161800d ago

Burnout please return, wipeout and motorstorm are dead dont leave us

toxic-inferno1799d ago

I wish MotorStorm hadn't suffered such a fate :/ It was one of my favourite series from this generation.

n4rc1800d ago

I'm all for that..

I honestly feel underground 2 was one of the funniest racing games ever made.. Wasn't realistic or anything but the driving mechanics were just a blast..

Elit3Nick1800d ago

I hope you mean funnest...

n4rc1799d ago

My phone doesn't like funnest. Not a word apparently

Iceman_Nightmare1800d ago

The day EA realized that the game they should of make a decade ago was Underground 3, and decides to make it... That day is the day I start playing the Need For Speed games again, and it better not be made by Criterion Games or Ghost with any association with Criterion Games. Ghost is basically Criterion Games 2, and Need For Speed Rivals is just Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2010 with better graphics. Need For Speed for now is just the Call of Duty of racing games. What a shame..

MajorLazer1800d ago

It looks exactly the same as previous titles

PersonMan1800d ago

That's a bad thing? I think it looks great.

Also, keep in mind that it was designed to be released on current gen and next gen so it's obviously not going to look as great as a game built from the ground up as a next gen title.

Iceman_Nightmare1800d ago

No you idiot, he means the suckish driving mechanism of previous Burnout Need For Speed is returning. No Skylines, just another exotic only Burnout game with cops driving one billion dollars exotic cars and double tap L2 to drift because you cant turn in a sharp corner in any game made by Criterion Games or GHOST (in association with Criterion Games). This is just gonna be like Hot Pursuit 2010, fun for 1 month and it gets repetitive and boring. Dont believe me, buy it and when later you hate it and regret buying it remember I told you.

NioRide1800d ago

Odd Ice, I really enjoyed the last game, actually I've enjoyed all of the NFS's except undercover, which was really bad.

MajorLazer1800d ago

I don't mean graphics. I mean the gameplay looks exactly the same as previous titles, and I mean exactly the same. No innovation at all

NioRide1800d ago

Koyes, Innovation is not always good.

I enjoyed the last most wanted game, a lot of actually. Innovation tends to ruin a lot of great series.

Look at Phantasy star and ace combat, they both had a "inovative" title that no one wanted in the first place.

No its not call of duty this need for speed will be good

Deceiver_Of_The_Gods1799d ago

Its the same shit as hp2010 , boring with only exotic cars and no tuning , no storyline , just nothing

USMC_POLICE1799d ago

Racing games don't need a story
