BeefJack: "Need for Speed: The Run is a deathtrap, hitting every obstacle in its path and careening into new depths for a series that had been looking renewed for the past few years. Don’t waste your time or money."
Oh, wow. That's a really low score, lol.
Played the game. Definitely not worth a 2.9 in my opinion, this reviewer must've been on crack while writing this.
What score would you give it then? I tried the PS3 demo and I couldn't stand the driving in the snow area. It just didn't work at all. I'm passing on this game.
I would give it a 7 at least. In the demo, the handling of the cars were really shitty, however, in the retail game, the cars feel somewhat more controllable. The game is definitely better than undercover.
I hardly played Hot Pursuit so far. Maybe I'll just play that instead. I'm kind of tired of those games anyway.
??? WTF ???
Although I do think this game is crap....ehh 2.9?
2.9? you can at least drive right?
lol is this game really that bad?
Doth mine eyes deceive me? 2.9? According to the review, the controls seem to be the reviewer's main issues. The controls and gameplay may not have been as tight as Hot Pursuit, but they were also not THAT bad. >.>
Think this game sucked big time.5/10 would be my score,and i really liked hot pursuit.
a game that "sucked big time" hardly deserves a 5/10, which is a distinctly average score, no?
Average does not mean half way. Half way is medium, average means what most games score. 5 is below average when it comes to gaming. In fact, EDGE, probably the strictest reviewer on metacritic has an average review score of 63 for all the games they've reviewed.
I don't know what he was smoking, the game is a 7/10 minimum. I'd give it an 8 myself.
