Full review of the new NFS Payback.
"Your crew of Tyler, Mac & Jess vary from dislikable bro-talker to arrogant and aloof. None of them have any personal interest, and there’s also zero relationship value between the three of them (in fact, they start out after the prologue with a significant amount of distrust between them). The story has some explosive moments, but almost all of them take place in cut-scenes, which is really frustrating that they couldn’t be converted to gameplay. Forza Horizon has made a name out of ludicrously silly challenges and massive jumps, whilst the series already has history when it comes to cop chases. It’s a real shame."
