If the story was more complex and the actual racing time (in the Run mode) was doubled, this would easily surpass Criterion's Hot Pursuit. Although, considering only the actual races, I thought this was a lot more fun than that game, especially because it focuses on the races themselves and doesn't force you to avoid spike strip after spike strip (seriously tired of those). Also, racing in a sandstorm, avalanche, NY subway or Vegas strip = epic.

    • Yep, enjoyed this much more than Hot Pursuit, better handling (not as floaty) and better environments. Agree that the story mode seemed unfinished though.

Why is the camera view changing automatically while I didn't ask for it?! Why the cars take so long to turn?! Why can't I change my car during the Run when I really need it?! Why are you freezing when I play?! WHY?!

    • Each strike with a pole distress me. Who will win? Will the pole or tree simply be pulled off, or will the car dismally inpact in it and make me lose pecious seconds?? Also, the camera always changes the view by itself when I'm drifting, it's an extra illogical difficulty I have to deal with! And I regret the're no outside rear view mirror (except from promptly rapping L1), it would have been very useful to prevent the competitors from overtaking me.

    • I'm waiting for GRID 2. I loved GRID 1, and I heard they did a much better job with the recent Dirt 3 than Dirt 2. I'm optimistic. GRID 2 may be the game to get me to buy a racing wheel.

    I am a big racing game fan. All the way back to Gran Turismo on PS1. But on this gen I have seen not just the popularity, but the over all quality of racing games die. To name a few, GT5 was to focused on online. And the famous NFS has hit rock bottom imo. Hot Pursuit was good and Shift 1 & 2 could have been something. Its a real shame. DiRT & Grid seems to be the only racing games out now. I cant wait for Gird 2, but I hope that more great racing games come.

    This has to be the worst NFS game I have ever played tho. They should have call this Need For Speed: Ram and Lag. I am so glad I never have to play this game again. I really do like racing games, but this has to be one of the worst.

    [+] 30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 3 - A game that is underrated.

    NFS: The Run. The racing aspect of it is good, but not great. You race from San Francisco to New York against 200 other drivers. I'd give this game a 7/10, the racing is okay and the soundtrack isn't that bad. I think a 7/10 would be a more suitable rating, 6.5/10 is just a bit too low.

    • This game is fairly good on the racing aspect but when comes down to cars the controls seem unresponsive or outright break for some of them

      at least it seem that to me.
