After playing the game for about 8 hours now most of which was online the events is the meat and potatoes of this game the events range from head to head, races, time trials. But the beauty of the game is you can just drive around and once you see a player symbol over a car you can just instantly challenge them and start racing and if you are playing as a cop you can just go around busting people its a ton of fun

I just subscribed to gamefly, and there really isn't much out for PS4 yet so i picked this out to start. It is a fun game that non racing fans (like me) can just pick up and play. The bad thing is that it's just that, a pick up and play game. There isn't a great story or anything like that to keep you really wanting to keep playing. It's a game with objectives that need to be met, and once you meet them you unlock stuff, and then do it all over again.
The visuals and sound are really good and fast paced. When your chasing someone it really feels like a high speed chase where a small mistake will mean your car flipping into the mountains.
I give this a 7 out of 10 because it's fun and cool to play, but it doesn't have anything that really keeps you wanting to get invested in it. It's worth a rent, not a buy
This game is insanely fun. That said he fun is not long lasting. Everything is as fun as it should be with a nfs game but nothing takes itself to seriously. The cars all feel fun and the mechanics are fun while things are new but once you've done it all there's not much reason to hang around. Also, the crashes are crazy easy to get into and nothing feels super well balanced. Open stretches of highway make it impossible for cops to catch up as racers just hit turbo and constant repair shops and the winding roads make it impossible to get away from cops or find a place to repair half the time. It's not about skill it's about location. I say these criticisms only after having hours of fun. Also, the always online sucks. I wish developers would stop assuming all gamers are teenagers who can sit in front of a tv all day. Some of us are married with children and being able to pause or finish a quick game is a lot easier than being stuck in a high stakes always on world where you are severely punished for needing to step away for a moment.
