Solid Racing from Blackbox,
This review is from: Need for Speed: The Run (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
This game is pretty good with streamlining the fast cars element, racing and environmental escapes (and cops).
The graphics are top notch, though the cars are possibly modelled better in NFS Hot Pursuit 2010?
Brilliant use of track terrain/generation and environments as obstacles, on the PC physx (and high end graphics card) is put too excellent use. The races feel frenetic and fast with danger at every turning and mastering of the drifts/corners and nitrous boost are essential in order to keep ahead of the pack.
The game's story is nicely integrated within the race context, but probably slows down the overall feel of getting on with what NFS is known for, but a different take and not a bad one to boot!
For those looking for an integrated idea of the old NFS games, customisation and kitting this streamlines that process while providing the arcade feel of NFS Hot Pursuit.
Watch those corners!!!
