Open World Racing Fails Again

I've been gaming for 15+ years & I love most NFS games but Burnout is the best ever. EA did to NFS what they did to Burnout: Ruined it with open world b.s.

This is not GTA. Swarms of cops before, during and after every race is absurd. You have to fight to get the winnings for the race you just won. It's frustrating as can be.

There's no pause button. Absurd.

Though going 200mph, shooting weapons, dodging traffic, wrestling racers, and evading cops sounds fun it's a whole lot less fun when you have to stare at your GPS for the next turn. Races are TRACKS.

This game looks good and feels fast but driving around looking for your next race is dumb too.

The Run was great. So were all the Burnouts before Paradise. This is one of the most joyless racing games I've ever played.

& good luck connecting with your friends on there. Total joke.

A fun game for racing newbs

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

Solid But Repetative

This is a solid arcade racing game.

You can play as either a racer or a policeman and you can switch back and forth anytime. You receive a set of tasks, races, or situations you have to drive through.

The game is fun for a bit but it gets very repetitive and eventually just becomes a grind. The graphics on the PS4 were very good but I did occasionaly see a car just appear out of nowhere.
