Need For Speed (2015)

Post by Brat81 » 07 Nov 2015, 11:41

I was somewhat excited to play this title it looked very promising with all the customizing that was available.
When i got the game and had it installed on my Xbox 1 i had loaded the game up and was hit with the DRM instantly i couldn't connect to the EA servers for a good 3 hours.

Positives
Good Visuals
Great Customization
Engine sounds are on point

Negatives
Steering model is like pushing a shopping cart
No Manual Transmission
No Wheel support
Always online-drm that seems to kick legit players
Unable to pause the game
No cockpit view
Constant annoying calls from your crew - it's worse than Roman Bellic calling to see if you want to go bowling


I'll be taking this game back as i found no enjoyment in this title, i may purchase again when it's stupidly cheap and patches have been done to fix everything. But untill then EA you have let us down again with another wannabe arcade sim racer.

I played a little bit on EA Access. I'll wait for it to be in the Vault.

Yeah that was what I found strange too..

..but the rest of the game is flippin fantastic. I can't fault it. The customization is just wow and I'm having a lot of fun.. I do wish it kinda had player cops though, the AI cops don't feel harsh enough haha.
