The Need for Speed series is built upon a sort of identity crisis that sits well with fans of all styles of racing games. One game may have you modifying tuner cars and racing them for street cred, while another may have you solving mysteries in high-price exotics. The theme may change from year to year, but the bottom line stays the same: Need for Speed games are about in-your-face extreme car racing on the most public of public roads."
