When a game is genuinely good, it doesn’t feel like I’m playing it just for the sake of the review. Need for Speed Heat evokes that feeling as I’m simply having too much fun with it. Compared to its obvious role models, it doesn’t ramble all over the place but has a grateful focus to it. The game comfortably speeds along a yellow brick road that goes neatly between calculated appeal of Forza Horizon and the excess abundance of The Crew, and that’s why I liked it better than those two. In fact, I’m afraid that NFS Heat kind of spoils its genre. I need games with a human touch and after this, racing games without this much personality just won’t do anymore
Need for Speed Heat may be a greatest hits collection of past success stories in an attempt to make up for the past, but it still pushes the pedal to the metal when it comes to being a guilty pleasure of pure street racing junk food that’s hot off the engine block.
Need for Speed has meant different things over the years, but Heat is a good all-around representation of the franchise. The police could be a little more prominent, and the world – while well stocked – isn’t as interesting as Forza Horizon’s, for instance, but NFS Heat is the best iteration since Ghost Games’ reboot in 2015.
When Need for Speed: Heat is producing its promised fantasy, it’s a wonderful game which I’m always happy to keep coming back to. Ghost Games have improved their engine and systems to make the city and cars feel better than ever, and Heat’s core gameplay loop is designed to last. Occasionally there are the moments which require suspension of disbelief, and it’s possible for the more misguided elements to build tedium in an otherwise strong entry to the series. Heat is a marked improvement on the last few Need for Speed games, however, and I hope that further refinement will see the series better deliver on its legacy.
Palm City is a lot of fun to explore at night, yet kind of boring during the day. Lots of tuning options and exciting chase sequences will keep you playing, though the same can unfortunately not be said about the game's lackluster story.
Personally, i'ts a good game but it's not perfect. As EA always made, Heat has good graphics and the music and the atmosphere is cool. However, on balance, I still think the city is empty. I believe the narrative, dialogues and controls is far better than the other one. No doubt.
In conclusion, it's not very difficult to improve in compare than the previous but it's not perfect. It's necessary polish to be a great game.
Jugué al need for speed de 2016 y me pareció relativamente bueno. A pesar de que este incluya mayor contenido, me ha parecido aburrido y no he llegado a acabarlo. Las persecuciones con la policía se hacen muy frustrantes, siendo el principal motivo para dejarlo, ya que algunas duraban hasta 20 minutos.
