Really Bad

If you're into racing games, this is for you.

I literally got this game today, I saw a couple of videos on it and it looked like a really good game!
Sadly, when I was finally able to get this I began to play and started to realize it's not as fun as you think. The open world and the graphics itself is beautiful. But It could get repetitive with the similar rodes. Another thing is that with all the missions in the game, it's really disappointing to see that most of the missions are extremely repetitive and the only difference is that it gets harder and harder. I've never really played racing games so the overall experience may be completely different for you. For one, I did only play this game for a good 4 hours before rage quitting seeing as it's not fun for me but it's also pretty challenging. The cars control fine and they're awesome. Not to mention there's a plentiful amount of cars to drive around. But the police could get pretty annoying. When you get busted, you lose all the money you earned so that would get pretty irritating, But don't get me wrong I like a challenge in a game, it's just that it was executed pretty poorly. and it's bad enough the HUD is as convoluted as it is you consistently having to look all over the place, I've just pointed out a few things that irritated me, but like I said, the experience for me personally was not great. If you really wanna see what this game has to offer, go ahead and rent it. But I warn you it may be a waste of a rent.

I thought this game would be awesome. It was not. Once again, I am disappointed with a rental from Gamefly. Not only was this title not at the top of my GameQ, but it's not even a title I was curious about...the graphics were ok, the gameplay sketchy, and the story? Dull. Dud.

This is a great need for speed game in the series so far but for gameplay it is just about the same as the new version of Hot Pursuit just with Frostbite 3 game tech making a new paint of graphics and sound and now is open-world similar to Underground days but not as great. With all that said it is a decent release.

Graphics and sound is at 1080p and next gen quality instead of 1600x900 upscaled to 1080p like Battlefield 4. It is a great quality but we need to see what it can do, especially later releases like Dragon Age Inquisition.

Overall this game I give a 7 out of 10.
