One year, they are developing a story-based racing game, the next it’s a simulation-focused title. In the last year or so, we’ve seen them do both an arcade and a simulation racing title. Now, the upcoming Need For Speed: The Run is their story-centric game. With The Run coming out later this fall, we had the chance to both see and play the game and the end result could be quite interesting."
