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.

    3.0 out of 5 stars NFS The Run: Momentum lost from NFS:Hot Pursuit November 15, 2011
    Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
    For anyone that played NFS:Hot Pursuit, one could argue the only thing that game was missing was a "freeplay" mode (ala Test Drive Unlimited 2) to run over any part of the map you wanted. But the gameplay was top notch, as was the online multiplayer, which shows why NFS: Hot Pursuit still has a strong following.

    And while I can appreciate what EA tried to do with NFS: The Run, it's just not done very well.

    For a full retail game ($60) to be over in THREE hours, that's not acceptable in a racing game considering that Blur could take you several WEEKS to work through, along with racers like Dirt 3, Gran Turismo 5, etc. This means unless you're a trophy hunter or a die-hard online player, the game's over in about the time it takes to play an NFL game on Sunday. So for this reason, I suggest if you don't fall into the categories I just mentioned, give this a rental.

    From a graphics standpoint, the game looks awesome, especially during the cutscenes and the areas you'll be driving. However when the graphics is the strongest point of the game, you've got a problem right there.

    One of the things that has plagued the Shift series of games is the floaty handling. And one of the things that made NFS:Hot Pursuit so GOOD was how well that game handled. Sadly, in NFS: The Run, it seems you're driving a Land Rover instead of a Zonda. It's extremely hard to execute good, drifting turns, hard to weave in and out of the environmental scenes (which Split/Second did far better and more convincingly), and more often then not, you end up wrecking. While the "rewind" feature is nice, a 10 second interruption in the gameplay is not while you're waiting to get back in the race.

    5.0 out of 5 stars what's not to like November 24, 2011
    Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    I give The Run 5 stars and I'm puzzled that there are so many complaints and 1 star ratings. I have several of the PS3 racing games, Grid, Dirt 1,2&3, GT, NFS series, and they all take a little getting used to, at least for me. Once you get the hang of it, it's simply a blast. With The Run, you get to street race in San Francisco against oncoming traffic or weave in and out of traffic on an LA freeway with spectacular graphics. Seriously, what's not to like. I'm about a third of the way thru, playing the challenges along the way and I think The Run is a 5 star addition to my game collection. That's my 2 cents.

    4.0 out of 5 stars It's not Hot Pursuit, but it's still fun! November 16, 2011
    Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    Black Box is not Criteron Games, so I wasn't expecting anything nearly as good as Hot Pursuit. With that being said, I haven't been disappointed yet. The tracks all look amazing as do the cars. Yes, some of them are hard to handle but if you're having a hard time, just use a car with normal handling and you'll be ok. But there is great reward in mastering tracks with cars that are harder to handle as you'll take seconds off your lap time as you sacrifice easier handling for speed. There is a lot of rubber banding AI though. There's been several races that I've been on the final stretch, saw someone coming in behind me and I punch the nitro and they still fly right past me and beat me by a split second...and I started it on easy just so I could familiarize myself with the tracks. The cops in this game are more annoying than they are fun like in Hot Pursuit too. I can't count how many times so far that I'd go to drift around a turn only to be super human rammed by some cop and go flying right off a cliff or the path.

    Speaking of that, the game also seems to have a problem with you being off of the beaten path. If it's not a shortcut or the actual road, the game will make you rewind (an annoying feature added that takes you back to your last checkpoint). It's a nice feature for when you wreck but more often than not, you're going to be seeing it because your car was slightly just past the cones or you were bumped through the yellow turn there arrows because they aren't an invisible wall in this game. My favorite so far has been getting a ton of air from a jump that I think I bounced off a tanker truck and then somehow I wrecked before I even hit the ground (and it would have been a perfect landing!).

    3.0 out of 5 stars A box full of mediocrity November 29, 2011
    By Jason L
    Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
    Before I start off with this review, I would like you to know that I have been an avid supporter of the NFS series for years. I have played every single NFS game except for the first one and Shift 2. No, Pro Street never happened so I have never touched that game.

    What I liked:
    1. Thanks to Frostbite 2, the graphics look really good. The environment really shines. The cars aren't too shabby either.
    2. The cars sounds fine. They aren't mind-blowing, but they're decent.
    3. The quick=time events are surprisingly decent. I didn't mind them at all.
    4. Personally, I like the licensed soundtrack a lot. It is pretty much a blend of alternative and rock.
    5. Just a fun fact. Christina Hendricks plays a role in the game.
    6. The cover looks pretty rad.

    What I didn't like:
    1. Compared to Hot Pursuit's feel of playing with toy cars, this one feels like pushing a cardboard box around. The vehicles don't feel alive. There is no sense of satisfaction in the driving portion. That could be a matter of preference though.
    2. The game doesn't really pick up until your 80% into the game, when you start driving the ultra high end cars.
    3. Very much similar to other non=simulation NFS titles, this game relies heavily on rubberband AI. Your opponents always catch up. You never get to the first place until the final seconds. The rubberband AI causes extreme frustrations on plenty of occasions.
    4. The developer claimed that they placed a much larger emphasis on the storyline of the game. So the plot basically revolves around this guy named Jack who needs to win the cash in order to fend off the mob. Sam, his friend, hooked him up on the race. That's it. That's the entire storyline, literally.
