Horrible

Very Poorly Done Game

Need For Speed use to be a great series. I use to enjoy playing the NFS games. I've only played the game for a few hours and was ready to break my controller.

----GAMEPLAY----
After a long unskipable cut scene, you get to choose your side, Cop or Racer. Say you choose Cop, you go through a tutorial. Simple enough right? All games have tutorials. However you can not skip a single thing in the tutorial. The narrator talks on and on for a while and you can only continue once she is done speaking. Once you finish the Cop tutorial, you are FORCED to go play as a Racer so you can "understand your rival". Now that's pretty simple EXCEPT the game FORCES you to sit through basically the SAME EXACT tutorial that you did with the Cop side. After all of that you get the option to choose your side once again. Once you choose your side, you are forced to make an Origin account and then sit through another cut scene explaining the "All Drive" system where you are constantly playing online with other players, bla bla bla.

----GRAPHICS/SOUNDS----
On the Xbox One, the graphics aren't that bad. However the sounds are very unrealistic. The police sirens are computer generated and sound absolutely terrible.

----CARS----
If you want a large car selection, don't get this game. NFS Hot Pursuit had probably 5 times the amount of cars that this game has.

----HANDLING----
I think this game has crappier handling then the only NFS Underground 2 game had.

With this game, it seems like they tried to make it look pretty and didn't bother with anything else.

After playing the tutorial that makes you watch long videos that you cannot skip it tries to connect to the EA servers to play the single player game. The problem is it takes over 10 minutes to connect if your lucky. Sometimes it will not even connect.
