3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, 22 Feb 2012
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Need for Speed: The Run (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have never really been a huge fan of the "need for speed" series...although I loved Need for speed - Shift", but thought I would give this a whirl.

What I immediately noticed was the fact it's a typical E.A. presentation, where you have to wait for ages for any action to happen...menu after menu, cinematic sequences, etc etc...sometimes I feel a little less could be more, although presentation certainly is glossy.

Gameplay however I found really infuriating, whereby you have to be as quick as you can to reach a certain place...and as far up the rank of drivers as you can.

I found time and time again, it reminded me of the infuriating "burnout series".....negotiating often impossible obstacles on your way...resulting in slow-mo presentation of the crash you just had...just as in "burnout"....which I find really tends to rub my face in it, it's almost a case is "here's what you just did...which you shouldnt have done!"...

Graphics are good, sound is good, presentation if glossy, if a little long-winded, The fun aspect I found quickly dissipated, but I am sure with a lot more practice, this will prove to grow on me (hopefully not like some kind of lethal fumgus!!!)

Give it a whirl!
