Need for Speed (2015) is a complete reboot of the franchise, incorporating elements from some of the best entries in franchise.
It features deep customisation, authentic urban car culture, a nocturnal open world, and an immersive plot. The overall focus is on deeper levels of car culture than any previous Need for Speed title, and is centred around the player's car.
The game has had an ambitious fan feedback program, with various fans being invited to play early prototype builds of title, and addressing feedback based on fan input.
Runs great, looks great, plays great. I wish that there was more customization, a majority of cars don't even have visual customization besides an all-encompassing body kit with paint and wheel customization. I don't play racing games for how the cars look, though, so not a huge gripe. The reviews all complain about the cut-scenes, however, they weren't "that" cringe inducing or even existent after the main story concluded. After more than 100 hours of playing after beating the main story, the online is still a blast to play. Highly recommend to anyone who likes an arcade racing game that still demands skill to compete.
If you love racing games, pick this bad boy up. It's everything Need For Speed is all about right on the PC.
When I saw this game was coming to PC, I immediately sold my Xbox copy and grabbed this one, knowing that they were going to let me play in something beautiful that I like to call 60 fps. When you play this game, it feels like real life, it actually feels like you are sitting inside that car racing around the city. Although the campaign is seriously lacking, and the live action cutscenes are absolutely hilarious (especially when they are supposed to be serious) the gameplay is beautifully smooth, and the graphics are downright outstanding. Racing around the city is always fun, trying to get the best drifts, competing against all those online records that people are settings, but most of all, customizing your car is great, you literally get right into it and customize EVERY single aspect of your vehicle, not to mention that they have quite a few vehicles to choose from, and will just continue to add more. Altogether, if you're a racing fan, or just want to play a game that makes you feel as though you're actually driving a fancy car through a rainy night city, well, this game will supply the best of both!
In an age where we get sub standard releases on PC it is nice to see someone taking a PC release seriously, even if it is EA. Need for Speed is just that, a very nice release of a game that hit consoles at the tail end of last year. It was held up so they could put the finishing touches on the PC version, including 4k screen support and manual shifting, both of which people complained when they weren't on the console version. Drift, Drag, and race your way through a good amount of content, just watch the fist bumping as the videos in game are still impossible to skip. All in all a great racing game for PC which has been seriously devoid of good content for a very long time now.
