Need for speed payback is so bad when you compare it to the Forza Horizon series, or even The Crew.

The Crew was the same as NFS crap.

what?! Dead Space 1 and 2 were great ... their best new ip since Mass Effect.

I liked The Crew, if only for the novelty of driving around a scaled down USA.

But the crew got better with updates and is still better than the last few nfs games.

NFSP is exactly like The Crew hence why i think NFSP is decent, and you can't compare NFSP to Forza Horizon lOl, that's like me comparing MGS to TLOU

NFS was one of my favorite franchises along with Dead Space and EA killed both of them. Each NFS game since 2015 has been terrible IMO and NFS Payback is even worst with the microtransactions. They keep seeming to forget what makes a game fun. I remember when NFS was getting back to back amazing games such as Hot Pursuit 1&2, Underground, Most wanted, The run and even Rivals. Next time they make one I hope they focus on the gameplay and not the online and give the fans what they want.

NFS Underground was my jam. That Miata was so dope through the corners.

I am not exactly sure what direction they are going in anymore. These games should still be great, but EA keeps coming up with some stupid ideas!

ravinash345d ago

EAs focus is purely on how to milk more money from customers after they have purchased the game.
They can only do that with microtransactions through online play.
Their not interested in making extra content like missions or expansions to single player games, because it cost too much money to make compared to adding a skin or changing the colour of something and sucking people into buying that.

EA ruin everything they touch. They have even knackered Star Wars.

Battlefield will probably be the next franchise to be screwed over by EA. Hopefully thats not the case as its the only shooter i play these days..

Tru_Blu345d ago

Oh you know a card based progression system is coming to the next battlefield. A part of me inside is literally going to die when I see it confirmed :(

TheSplooge345d ago

I surely hope not. I would really love for them to go back with what 1942 and BF2 was all about. No unlimited ammo in vehicles and health regen. Add ammo/repair stations to the maps etc.. Really miss the old days of the BF series.

Neither series is dead

They're dead to me...

kevnb345d ago

fair enough, but one bad mass effect game and a need for speed series that still sells 500 000 copies week 1 at retail doesnt equate to dead franchises.

UnHoly_One344d ago

Yeah I agree. I don't know why everyone wants to declare everything dead nowadays.

Hell, I thought Andromeda was a great game.

But what do I know?
