Need for Speed: The Run - Xbox 360

FEATURED Need for Speed: The Run – Xbox 360

  • Be the first to cross the finish line as you speed across the country from San Francisco to New York in an illicit, high-stakes race
  • Race as Jack, a marked man who must make it to New York City ahead of the competition, the police and the men who want him dead

It’s called The Run. An illicit, high-stakes race across the country. The only way to get your life back is to be the first from San Francisco to New York. No speed limits. No rules. No allies. All you have are your driving skills and sheer determination as you battle hundreds of the world’s most notorious drivers on the country’s most dangerous roads. In Need for Speed The Run, you’ll weave through dense urban centers, rocket down icy mountain passes and navigate narrow canyons at breakneck speeds, all the while evading a relentless police force prepared – and willing – to use lethal force to take you down.

On one side of this country lie the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and cable cars — on the opposite coast there are massive skyscrapers, the Statue of Liberty and the endless glow of Times Square. What separates these two great cities is nearly 3,000 miles of roadway through dense urban centers, over epic mountains, across arid deserts and in constricted canyons.

      Pretty boring honestly. The game itself isnt that fun to play, it’s ok but it’s weak. The races are short for the most part and the driving is ok a camera stays focused on your car through turns which is cool but NO WAY this game is worth $60. Breakdown

      Graphics-9.5 awesome graphics but unfortunately this is the best part of the game
      Replayability-4 there are challenges to unlock cars an other things but nothing major
      Physics (mechanics)- 2 it doesn’t feel like you are driving the car, even when you choose the view to race from within the car there isn’t even a steering wheel or nothing just looking at the road, this isn’t the early 2000s
      Length- 1…maybe 5 hours tops?? Really?
      Enjoyment- 1 honestly it’s pretty boring, it didn’t make me want to play this game at all

      I love NFS, mostly the older ones but I did enjoy hot pursuit but this game just doesn’t appeal

      Do yourself a favor, RENT before you buy. Trust me you will understand why after you rent it

      Overall the game is just overall weak minus the beautiful graphics but thats it. If you are looking for a new game for xbox pick up Skyrim, Saints row 3, Battlefield 3, Mw3, Gears of War 3, Batman Arkham City, Sonic Generations even Forza 4, but not The Run. I’m not hating on this game it just doesn’t being much too the table races too short an the little bit of excitement you’ll have playing this game quickly vanishes.

      Hope this helps

      This game is good, but there are a lot of people I know will be disappointed with it. All the races seem the same, just on a different stretch of track. Personally, I don’t mind because I can sit and play a game for hours, not caring whether I do good or bad, or what’s even going on in the game. The graphics are very nice, and they used the “Frostbite 2” engine, for those who don’t know, which was used for Battlefield 3. The actual story behind the game isn’t bad as well.

      Overall, the game will keep you busy for at least one play through the game, and if you’re interested, for some races online as well.

      EDIT: It feels like it’s sort of moving away from what NFS used to be. As far as I’ve played the game, I haven’t come across any “lap” type of races, it’s all get from point A to point B in an expensive sports car. I miss the street/drag racing kind of thing.

      EDIT #2: I’m finding myself to rage quiting while playing this game quite a bit. It seems like there’s always a car in the same lane that I can’t see just over that hill. It seems like the obstacles in this game are too easy to predict. Once again, I miss the old street/drag racing type of style. This feels a lot more like a simulator than an arcade racer. [Edit: it seems they have have patched it since I originally posted the review. I don’t run into those cars nearly as much anymore]
