So, basically, Need for Speed is pretty disappointing. There’s elements of the presentation that works, and it’s clear they were trying to evoke the feel and look of NFS Underground. But the actual execution is lacking, with performance issues, lackluster events, an empty map with useless sub-events, and a forced online mode that certainly doesn’t feel necessary and lacks almost all of the bells and whistles found in other online enabled racing games. In a world where something like Forza Horizon 2 exists, I can’t even reasonably suggest checking out Need for Speed. It’s an average racing experience with below-average content, and it’s not something that’ll be worthy of your attention this holiday season.
