View Full Version : Need for Speed: Rivals

I'm tempted to get this for the Xbox One. Forza looks lovely, but it's not really my kind of thing.

Never played a Need for Speed game before, but this looks like fun.

Does anyone have it already on the Xbox One? Or at least another platform? What's it like?

I bought it online tonight for PS4. Supposed to be really good, especially graphically.

NFS in my opinion has been bad for years! (Since Underground 2, or maybe Most Wanted) and this doesn't look much different from the last 2 or 3 versions.

They should just take it back to the open world illegal street racing scene, with the cheesy storyline with the hot girls!

Im not bothering with it in its current state http://i2.cdnds.net/13/49/sad.gif

Screw it. I just bought it. Had credit on my MS/XBL account.

I haven't really loved NFS since Undercover, don't get me wrong hot pursuit and (new) most wanted are good games but it always felt like there was something missing

The golden era of NFS was when they had stories, when they where basically the game versions of the Fast and Furious films, for me it just felt like there was something to aim for, I wanted to become the best underground racer, I wanted to beat the guy who cheated me out of my car while at the same time becoming the most wanted racer, I wanted to find out who stole the money in Carbon, I wanted to see the story play out in Undercover, hell i even wanted to win the Run in that awful game

Now it's just race around this big open city for nothing, maybe i'm just not that big of a racing fan but there is only so many times i can aimlessly drive down the same road before i get bored, earning speed points for upgrades/cars just isn't enough because the roads will still be the same
