Okay so it's not my favorite game of the year, but I don't know why it got such a low rating from everybody else. It's a fun game and a lot like hot pursuit. You get to achieve speed points through multiple races, cop pursuits, stunts and other objectives as well as switch between being a cop or racer. The cars are also still customizable, but not as much as in previous need for speed games. All in all, it deserves a 7 or 8 rating.

Disappointed PS3 Prospective

I'm not as upset as I would have if I bought this game. I spent more time resetting my PS3(System ONLY 8 Months old) because the game froze or the constant Host Migrations. Everyone attacked me for saying the game sucks! I can't be wrong if the game got ratings averaging 5 stars out of 10 on Gamefly. Just to prove to yall its not my system or my Internet. I did a few things;

1. I removed the NFS Rival game from my PS3. I then placed Grid 2 in there to see if I get the same results. Guess what I didn't. I continued to play other games with no problems.

2. The continuous Host Migration issues. Its not because of my Internet Service, its because of NFS Rival Servers.

In all honesty, I think NFS Rival was made for PS4 systems. Everyone that has the PS4 doesn't seem to be having any of these issues.

It was bad enough NFS: Most Wanted was nothing more than a Paradise City reboot. This game is all fluff no substance. If I was an EA executive I would fire everyone involved in making this game. Seriously, they concentrated so much on the background, leaves falling, fog, ridiculous camera effects, and weather that nothing was left for the driving physics. Saying the cars handle like bricks is an insult to bricks. How hard is it to listen to your fan base and create what we want? I’m truly heartbroken. This game had so much potential but it was all wasted on everything except the cars, the modifications, and the driving. Once again the hype was better entertainment than the game. Need For Speed is dead, murdered by the people at EA.
