3.0 out of 5 stars NFS Rivals on PS3: If you have a PS4, go with the upgrade November 22, 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
After having NFS: Rivals for the PS4 on launch day, I decided to get NFS: Rivals for the PS3 through Gamefly to see the differences.

And they are stark.

- On the PS4, there is no lag whatsoever. The game runs smoothly with no pop-in. On the PS3, oncoming traffic will pop in giving you next to no time to avoid it if you are going in the oncoming lane (which is quite common), causing you to crash. There is significant pop-in/draw distance as is true of other racing games (GT5 in particular) on the PS3.
- Graphically, there is no comparision, as one would expect. Everything looks significantly better on the PS4.
- As for the gameplay, the PS4 controller not only allows for better control, but also the inputs are real-time. You also don't get the "dead zone" with the analog sticks like you have with the PS3 Dualshock.

Now, as for the game itself:
- It's open world, in that you can drive on any road in the map without being in an event, but if you're expecting NFS: Most Wanted or Burnout Paradise levels of activity you may be disappointed, as it only extends to jumps and speed cameras/zones. There are no billboards/gates to smash and generally less areas to explore compared to those other 2 games.
- You can play as a cop or a racer; the cop path is significantly easier to progress through than the racer path (you unlock a new car with each speedlist you compelte), and the events are generally easier as well. So until you get accustomed to the control, I recommend being the cop.
- AllDrive is the new feature in the game, which seamlessly connects the single player game for up to 6 people at one time. This means you could be the cop, encounter another human players race, and be able to bust them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing November 27, 2013
By Darryl
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
If you have a PS4, or if you ever plan on getting a PS4, then do not buy the PS3 version

If you never plan on getting a PS4, then I strongly advise you to wait until this game is on sale ($20 or less) before you buy this. Buy Most Wanted or Hot Pursuit if you don't own those titles.

First of all, the graphics are horrible. It's so bad that the conspiracy theorist in me thinks Ghost/Criterion/EA/whoever nerfed the graphics on purpose to try and get people to buy a PS4. I felt like I was playing a PS2 game. I should not spend $60 on a video game in 2013 and see pixels all over the place. The cars are pixels. The trees are pixels. Everything is pixels. Most Wanted is beautiful. This game takes me back to NFS II on windows 95.

Second, and hopefully this is just a PS3 thing, the car-spawning is atrocious. I think others have touched on this as well. Cars pop up at the last second and this is annoying in a game where you are switching your focus from the road, to the mini map in the corner to make sure you are staying on course.

Third, the game constantly lags randomly and it will drop you from an online game completely all the time. I'm not sure if there even is an offline mode.

All of the horribleness taken into account, I still found the game kinda fun. The handling is the best out of any NFS game I've played. I also appreciate that they've made the game more realistic. You're not doing 100 mph in 2.5 seconds anymore. I completed racer mode (seriously who wants to be a cop anyway?) in a few days, but I am returning this game to Amazon for a full refund and I'll wait until I buy the PS4 to pick up this title again

1.0 out of 5 stars Basics I Expect Are A Let Down December 25, 2013
By Stacey
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
I will preface by saying I have always loved the Need For Speed games. They were my favorite racing games so without hesitation I bought Rivals for the PS3.
First off, there is no way to customize the controls. This is the first game where I have not been given the option to customize or at least choose from a few defaults. In this game, you are stuck with the way they think you should have to use the controls. I found the controls to be annoying. It feels foreign using L2 an R2 to brake and accelerate. Yes, they had gone to this in last year's The Run, but you did have the option of changing it. I did promptly in it. Not so in this game. Maybe others will enjoy the controls as is, but I did not. So much so that is really affected my ability to enjoy the game. If the controls don't feel comfortable, it is hard to enjoy a game.
Second, the graphics are lousy. Like others have mentioned, they aren't the quality that you would expect in a $60 PS3 game. This isn't some one off indi game. This is EA. There's no excuse for it. EA really dropped the ball here.
Also, the lag is awful. It really affects game play and causes problems with crashing.
Lastly there's the game play. I don't enjoy the goals it sets or that at times I'm required to play as the cop. I buy the game for the racing aspect and have no interest in playing the cop chase portion. It would be nice if they would go back to making it the players choice what they want to play as. No, I'm not getting the complete game's experience by just playing one side, but not all of us are hardcore gamers who are in it to explore every aspect of the game. Some of us just want to sit down and play a fun game.
After playing for a little bit, I took the game back. It's the worst NFS game I have played. It was not worth $60.
