Reviews for Need for Speed: Rivals (EU)


You should not get it in this state of release!

Some of you may be asking,why i say something that bad. It is because the game is buggy like hell. Sometimes you have to look up the controlls which you can´t change in the Option menu,although there is an tutorial. This Game has also a 30fps limiter which you cant change either,because the game would run at double speed which is not a great option. Also there are not many cars to drive,even less then Need For Speed: Most Wanted 2012. Another bad point is that the game is only playable,with an stable internet connection,so that means that even when you play alone you need to have a working internet connection. To name something good,this game has beautiful graphics in the most parts and you actually feel the speed,but thats it for the moment. This game hasn´t even a story,just some quests,races and video cutscenes. The tutorial which explains almost everything,which is a good thing, takes too much time and you feel pretty dumb after it,because they say you that you drive with the letters w and s,but don´t tell you that you use the arrow keys to steer the vehicle. If you have no fun collecting all tuning parts,you can unlock them with the timesafer pack. My advise is to keep away from this game at the state,if its patch it will be much fun. Also check the minimum Requirements listed on the right side. If the game is below 20 you should get it,because you can have fun with it,when it is patched.


a great addition to the nfs series

NFS is all about exotic cars racing in exotic places etc. At least that's where it all started. One of the recent NFS games got that exact feeling and turned out really great. That was Hot Pursuit. Now Rivals comes and expands upon HP to create an even better experience. The concept is the same, just everything feels improved. If you were a fan of the first NFS games and really loved the return to the roots that HP did, buy this without a second thought. You won't regret it!
