IGN:Need for Speed: The Run Review

IGN:In the time it's taken Black Box to make Need for Speed: The Run, we've had three other awesome NFS titles from other developers. While that's great for fans, it kind of spoiled Black Box's return to form. Need for Speed: The Run feels like a traditional NFS game, released after the franchise had already redefined itself. (Need For Speed: The Run, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 6.5/10

I couldn't even beat the demo. The avalanche was overpowered.
princejb134  +   1472d ago
i beat the demo, definitely not a purchase
nfs series has went down hill since most wanted
they should do a underground 3 or most wanted 2
egidem  +   1472d ago
I wish EA focused on better series...like The Burnout series or something...awesome games.
one2thr  +   1472d ago
How about another BLACK
Tazz1992  +   1472d ago
NFS Most wanted is my favorite NFS game.
I wish they would go back to what it really use to be, or just let it die.

Bodycount was the spiritual successor to black... and look how that turned out... a rushed game that EA wanted to put out before the horde of games -_-

@ one2thr
There was another Black, at least a spiritual successor. Stuart Black quit the team mid-way through development, but Bodycount's always open to you.

It went downhill after Hot Pursuit 2 with the Underground series. A game known for exotics and cop chases goes ricer? Give me a break!
AdmiralSnake  +   1472d ago

What the hell does black people have to do with the black game ? I'm black myself and have absolutely no relations to the game people were referring to moron.
badz149  +   1472d ago
from the demo alone
it screams mediocrity! WTH happen? Hot Pursuit was good and FYI EA, avalanche and NFS just don't fit together!

i think the new NFS: Hot Pursuit should have got around 7 too.. it wasn't that great you know.

Most Wanted indeed was great. i still have vivid memories of the chase scenes down the park... the golf course... the forest. wow.

NFS has gone downhill as they pump out 2 every year. We need a new Burnout Paradise instead.
zero_cool  +   1471d ago
You & me both lolz!...I've been waiting for the announcement of nfs underground 3 from eons!

Cheers Gamers & Happy Gaming!

"they should do a underground 3 or most wanted 2"

Most Wanted was fantastic, although it has not aged too well so I totally agree on a sequel. But I can't help thinking that the handling on NFS games has become way too Ridge Racer for my liking.
TheDareDevil  +   1471d ago

Bodycount was published by Codemasters. What u talkin bout?
Hanif-876  +   1472d ago
The only good Need For Speed Game is NFS: Underground 2 and i'm patiently waiting for the next installment. So whats the progress on NFS: Underground 3 EA?

I agree Underground 2 by far the best imo
SoapShoes  +   1472d ago
Underground series sucked compared to Hot Pursuit and High Stakes. Heck even Porsche Unleashed.
TroySoul  +   1472d ago
It came out 6 years ago. It's called Most Wanted. Ever heard of it?
Knushwood Butt  +   1472d ago
The demo was ass.

I think I lost interest before it was even over.
Shinuz  +   1472d ago
Completely agree with you
egidem  +   1472d ago
I beat the demo. I had mixed feelings about it. I'll be honest, this will be another pass once again.

I honestly don't know how EA keeps on milking the hell out of this franchise, and how on earth they're not getting tired of the milk.

They've tried every genre from arcade, to simulation. But it's like they never settle down.
morkendo  +   1472d ago
THE RUN feel like mostwanted on ice. glad the run have no black list to climb.

The Run feels like a traditional NFS game.

OH REALLY?? if it was TRADITIONAL it would play and feel like HIGH STAKES OR HOTPURSUIT 2 then.

I agree with u egidem i'll pass on this one as well.
8 NFS games i've passed on since HOTPURSUIT 2

IF criterion make hotpursuit 3 hopefully its not injuntion with burnout style DRIFTING AROUND CORNERS.

How about NFS Carbon? That was ok too right
R6ex  +   1471d ago
After playing the demo, I won't be buying because the driving itself just simply lack feel. As a driver, I want to get feedback from the bumps of the roads, the screeching rubber, the g-forces of Shift 2 and the authentic feel of GT5 or Forza cars. Sadly, there's none in The Run.

A well deserved score.

Massively disappointed by the demo...
Knew it wouldn't bode well for the final product. Oh well, there's always the next Hot Pursuit game by Criterion in 2012 (hopefully).

NYC_Gamer  +   1472d ago
even though this franchise has went down hill it still got a nice fan base
krisq  +   1472d ago
Won't buy another NFS until it's made by Criterion again.
Cablephish  +   1472d ago
Why not just get the next Burnout game then?

Or is there something I'm not getting here? :S
krisq  +   1472d ago
Burnout doesn't have real cars or am I wrong?
Besides, I have Paradise and it's great but for me latest Hot Pursuit was the pinnacle of arcade racing. It was perfect :)
Still playing it.
Cablephish  +   1471d ago
Maybe not but why do you need real cars? Is a game that advertises real cars that much more appealing then a game without?
Faztkiller  +   1472d ago
I enjoyed the demo but im not gonna buy it loved that it was actually a little challenging
Psychotica  +   1472d ago
Same mistakes as the last Hot Pursuit. No free ride = no sale from me..
RioKing  +   1472d ago
no vehicle customization either, if I remember correctly..
torchic  +   1472d ago
100% agree. waiting for the Driver: SF price drop..
SandWitch  +   1472d ago
Yeah, Driver SF is a great game. It has both interesting story and a lot of hours of interesting gameplay. I haven't been playing such good arcade racing game from NFS:U2.
thespaz  +   1471d ago
Hot Pursuit has free ride. I do it all the time.
Psychotica  +   1471d ago
Yeah by yourself..no police chases
thespaz  +   1471d ago
Oh. I didn't know that's what he meant.
FAGOL  +   1471d ago
Hot purtsuit does have free ride.
Lex Luthor  +   1472d ago
Most Wanted 2 please!
TroySoul  +   1472d ago
What do you think Carbon was, dude?
zeroreloaded  +   1472d ago
should have been the official score for mw2, oh sorry i meant modern warfare 2.5.
SuperK  +   1472d ago
^^^ Read your earlier comment. Damn you really are a retared aint you. Get back inside that trailer red neck. Your sister needs a good seeing to. lol

*Yawn* pass.
Plagasx  +   1472d ago
Oh NFS...How far you have fallen...
SDF Repellent  +   1472d ago
That is what EA gets for not allowing Porsche to be used in other Racing Games. I am still mad at EA for not allowing Porsche to be in Forza 4.

"ea employee:sir the game was a huge succes"

ea CEO:what?!!!!immediatly change the game!"
girlwithturn  +   1472d ago
Best nfs - underground. I remember epic drag race across trailway with Rob Zombie's car. U2 has horrible comix-story and stupid final. Just give us psn version of Underground and make Burnout Revenge 2/U3.

HaHa! Hey EA, first you talk all that smack on MW3 and then get whooped, then you take away Porches from Forza and now your game is terrible! Couldn't happen to a better company. GG EA.
