Welcome to Redview County, where a street-racing rivalry between cops and racers never stops as both sides compete in an all-out war to take over the social, local and national media and earn the best cars, mods and technology. Risk Everything. Trust No One.
Racers are lone wolves out for their own glory; driving agile cars built for high speed racing and epic chases. Cops work in teams to hunt down and bust racers using the full power of the police force. Switch roles at any time and watch the stakes grow in an all-new scoring system that lets you put your speed points on the line to earn even greater rewards.
New in Need for Speed Rivals, All-Drive destroys the line between single player and multiplayer gameplay. Seamlessly join a world where your friends are already racing and chasing. No lobbies. No waiting. Paths will cross as races and pursuits collide, creating a world where no two moments or events will ever be the same.
Your Car, Your Identity:
Power up your car with the latest performance upgrades and technology, and personalize your car with fresh paintjobs, liveries, custom license plates, rims, and decals to show off your style to your friends and rivals. Save different configurations and keep a variety of car packages available to leave your mark no matter the situation.
Pursuit and Evasion Tech:
Intense racing moments are made even more thrilling with access to technology and upgrades customized to each side of the law. Racers can choose evasion technology from jammers to electromagnetic pulses. Cops are outfitted for aggressive busts with shockwaves, roadblocks, helicopter support and more. No matter the side you choose, use technology to keep you one step ahead of your rivals.
You should not get it in this state of release!KatsumihD | Feb. 9, 2014 | See all KatsumihD's reviews »
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 seriessoad667 | Nov. 23, 2013 | See all soad667's reviews »
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!
