Product Description

It's called The Run. An illicit, high-stakes race across the country. The only way to get your life back is to be the first from San Francisco to New York. No speed limits. No rules. No allies. All you have are your driving skills and sheer determination as you battle hundreds of the world's most notorious drivers on the country's most dangerous roads. In Need for Speed The Run, you'll weave through dense urban centers, rocket down icy mountain passes and navigate narrow canyons at breakneck speeds, all the while evading a relentless police force prepared – and willing – to use lethal force to take you down.

On one side of this country lie the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and cable cars — on the opposite coast there are massive skyscrapers, the Statue of Liberty and the endless glow of Times Square. What separates these two great cities is nearly 3,000 miles of roadway through dense urban centers, over epic mountains, across arid deserts and in constricted canyons.

    My husband and I like to trade off playing the missions (since the multiplayer is limited). It's a fun story to follow and definitely challenging enough for both newbies and those more familiar with racing games. The graphics don't look that fabulous, but I really think that has mostly to do with Wii's low-quality interface and not something the manufacturer could help. Also, the button layout for classic controller use is really uncomfortable.

    Pros:
    - Fun 1-player story mode
    - Various challenge levels
    - Quick to jump into multiplayer matches
    - Works smoothly with Wii/Nunchuck

    Cons:
    - Graphics not exactly stellar
    - Must unlock multiplayer mode cars/parts through 1-player mission mode
    - The interface takes a little while to get used to
    - Poor button choices on Wii Classic Controller

    This game could have been much better.
    I have the first 4 need for speeds from old PS and PS2 so I had higher expectations. It was no better than the PS games, just more complicated.

    Cons:
    Need wii controller and nunchuck to drive. (very difficult for children and adults to drive)
    Does not work with steering wheel and motion plus sensor.
    Graphics are very basic.
    Too many functions oon 2 controllers, should have been simplified.

    Pros:
    It is a pretty good race game in excitement level from traffic and course.

    The game is really fun, but in the The Run you need to use the classic controller instead of using the Controller as a steering wheel - it spoil the fun in the way to play the races on the Wii.

    My grandsons both love to play Need for Speed. This was a gift that was a big hit. I am surprised that it seems to be fun no matter how often and how long they play it.

    My son says that he likes the game because it has some of his favorite cars, a fun story, and good graphics. He also is happy that it can be played by multiple players. As a parent, I am not thrilled that he plays the part of a criminal. Fortunately he also can play the part of the police officer. I probably should have investigated it more. And of course it didn't make it here before Christmas, de
    spite ordering it 3 weeks before.

    Not as great graphics or as fun as the older Need for Speed games. The instructions come on so fast and before you are thru reading them on screen they are gone and you are falling off bridge or cliff and die.

    Only okay graphics and it practically runs in a straight line. Kind of like Temple Run App. for Android. Doesn't even compare to NFS Carbon. That is a 2006 game but is far superior.
