Whether you are changing the ride height by slamming it to the ground, raising it up, or anything in between, you choose your perfect ride height. Throw in options for rake and both front and rear track width, and you’re on your way to creating something truly unique. Suspension tuning is finished up with your camber. With the angle on both the front and rear wheels being set independently you’ve got the ability to create some truly out of this world looking cars. The PC version has new features, including unlocked framerate with 4K resolution, manual transmission, and steering wheel support for a selection of steering wheels. Expand

    A good game enriched thanks to the support of the steering wheels, the manual transmission and 60 frames per second.

    Ghost Games used those four months since the initial console release well: Need for Speed runs very slick on modern PCs and looks stunning. The low difficulty is a major flaw though.

    After Need for Speed Undercover the core NFS-games seemed to have become lost glory. This new Need for Speed however marks the return of those core Need for Speed elements and shows that the voice of the fans really is heard by the developers.

    в без потенциальную телегу, расстроило что игра не помогает разобраться на что влияет каждая деталь, там конечно описано что это за деталь, но не написано что будет если убавить или прибавить ползунок настройки. и приходиться гуглить. Визуальный тюнинг на высоте, правда что мало, в underground 2 его было куда больше, но там он был одинаковый, я имею ввиду что на разные машины можно было поставить одинаковые бампер. а тут каждая машина имеет свой индивидуальный набор тюнинга. Очень понравилась прохождение сюжета. например ты сидишь в гараже и тюнишь тачку, а тебе звонят на твой телефон и приглашают погонятся. Если игнорировать приглашение, то тебе снова позвонят и скажут что ты их игноришь, и им это не нравиться. большое количество кастсцен, почти после каждой второй гонки, тебя зовут в кофе где проигрывается сцена, они короткие, но их много, поэтому они не надоедают. сюжет короткий, игру можно пройти за 2-3 дня. как в моем случае, а я бы еще погонял. мультиплер тут вроде не плохой. только вот когда кто то в чего врезается. он не останавливаться полностью. игра через секунду-две спавнит его немножко дальше по маршруту. у меня был такой случай. перед мной гонщик целует стену, я думаю что победа уже моя. но не тут то было, игра заспавнила его впереди меня, вообщем я не смог его обогнать(, и финишировал вторым. Полиция в игре ультра вялая. погонь как в mostwanted нет, да тут вообще нет никаких погонь. на раньих уровнях полиция еще представляет опасность, но после получения 2 уровня обгрейда ты проносишься мимо полиции как в третьем форсаже. понравились заграждения, типа есть пробивные а есть не пробивные. и от вторых надо поворачивать в сторону. так же не понравилось момент старта гонки, нет этих 3,2,1 го. ты просто вливаешься в уже начатую гонку.A как же попадания в идеальные обороты на старте?

I tried to overlook this problem by slowing down when i have the lead and letting the texture load but by the time its done, the other ****ers behind my ass already passed me miles away. This game has been out for a solid 2 years and still faces the same problem. but other then that one downflaw that breaks the ****ing game, it's a pretty good game. regardless, Go **** yourself EA.

    Here are the main reasons for my rating:
    First thing that i dislike about this game is the fact that its always online. Your internet dies in the middle of the race you get booted to the welcoming screen for being a filthy pirate i guess.
    Then there the controls which are sluggish cars feel like you are driving tanks. I played with the XBox controller so i do not know how it plays with keyboard or wheel, but controller was horrible.
    You can change handling of your car with the tune-able parts to drift focused or grip focus. Drift focus mean that it will be near impossible to drive straight while grip means you will have turning circle of a supertanker a middle road means that you will start drifting but next second you are driving dead straight into the wall. Anyway handling is absurd is what i meant to say.
    Next on the list AI and difficulty. There are races with three difficulties easy medium and hard. Depending on the race it is more like extremely easy somewhat easy and almost challenging. AI cars are super dumb and thanks to the fact that races take place in the open world you will often smash into AI racers that are just driving around getting in way. Also other human players can come over and ruin you races with no consequence to themselves so that is fun too.
    Cops in this game are utterly pointless they never catch anyone all they do is annoy you with sirens flashing lights and when you will inevitably escape you will get blinding blue flash to let you know. Also getting chased by cops prevents from restarting events.
    On the point of restarting races if you do restart you will be teleported to the event starting place and will have to watch loading screen and unskippable race intro again.
    And a 1000 more minor annoyances like interface some controls are remapable some not etc all add up to make game with great potential into frustrating mess.
    Anyway when my internet dropped i played NFSMW (2005) and it was so much better than this how is it possible they could not make a decent NFS in 11 years?

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Bought the game 5 days prior to release. Digital Deluxe. 72$. Was able to play a 10 hour trial. Devastating.
    After watching Trailers I was excited to be able to play "5 DIFFERENT WAYS" .. you are NOT. You will play one way and earn XP in 5 categories plus you will be able to play mission after mission after mission in each category.
    The game looks amazing but that's about it. After my 10 hour trial I had already 72% accomplished. I wasn't able to stand those phony characters in the Video sequences either. Fake and totally overdoing it. Who talks like that in the real world ? EA and Ghost had a good idea but simply didn't follow through with their promises.
    Why do I have 5 million options to make my car look good if it handles the same way anyways with a simple "OVERALL" Slider bar for "DRIFT" or "GRIP" ... sad.
    After finishing the story I am left with a world that only contains "already played" events to make more money and useless REP points. I reached REP Level 52 and basically everything was unlocked for the few cars I was offered to purchase. 97% percent of game completion after 14 hours in game time don't justify a 72$ price tag. 30 spots to find to take a picture and 30 spots to find to do a stupid DONUT is the tip of the melting Iceberg. Obvious hiding spots and non existing shortcuts including Police AI that seems never be able to catch up with you make this game totally worthless. I can't even pause the game while in a race to take a leak or answer a Phone call. On top of that fake social network tweets and idiotic cell phone calls ingame that stop the second you passed the story make this game one of the worst NEED FOR SPEED titles in its entire franchise history.

    Sorry EA and GHOST .. you didn't convince me and I returned the game successfully to buy my Kids and my wife a visit to the 3D movies tonight.
