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.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed November 16, 2011
    Platform for Display:Xbox 360
    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
    Pretty boring honestly. The game itself isnt that fun to play, it's ok but it's weak. The races are short for the most part and the driving is ok a camera stays focused on your car through turns which is cool but NO WAY this game is worth $60. Breakdown

    Graphics-9.5 awesome graphics but unfortunately this is the best part of the game
    Replayability-4 there are challenges to unlock cars an other things but nothing major
    Physics (mechanics)- 2 it doesn't feel like you are driving the car, even when you choose the view to race from within the car there isn't even a steering wheel or nothing just looking at the road, this isn't the early 2000s
    Length- 1...maybe 5 hours tops?? Really?
    Enjoyment- 1 honestly it's pretty boring, it didn't make me want to play this game at all

    I love NFS, mostly the older ones but I did enjoy hot pursuit but this game just doesn't appeal

    Do yourself a favor, RENT before you buy. Trust me you will understand why after you rent it

    Overall the game is just overall weak minus the beautiful graphics but thats it. If you are looking for a new game for xbox pick up Skyrim, Saints row 3, Battlefield 3, Mw3, Gears of War 3, Batman Arkham City, Sonic Generations even Forza 4, but not The Run. I'm not hating on this game it just doesn't being much too the table races too short an the little bit of excitement you'll have playing this game quickly vanishes.

    Hope this helps

    4.0 out of 5 stars I'm glad I picked it up for less than $60 November 27, 2011
    Platform for Display:Xbox 360
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    This game is good, but there are a lot of people I know will be disappointed with it. All the races seem the same, just on a different stretch of track. Personally, I don't mind because I can sit and play a game for hours, not caring whether I do good or bad, or what's even going on in the game. The graphics are very nice, and they used the "Frostbite 2" engine, for those who don't know, which was used for Battlefield 3. The actual story behind the game isn't bad as well.

    Overall, the game will keep you busy for at least one play through the game, and if you're interested, for some races online as well.

    EDIT: It feels like it's sort of moving away from what NFS used to be. As far as I've played the game, I haven't come across any "lap" type of races, it's all get from point A to point B in an expensive sports car. I miss the street/drag racing kind of thing.

    EDIT #2: I'm finding myself to rage quiting while playing this game quite a bit. It seems like there's always a car in the same lane that I can't see just over that hill. It seems like the obstacles in this game are too easy to predict. Once again, I miss the old street/drag racing type of style. This feels a lot more like a simulator than an arcade racer. [Edit: it seems they have have patched it since I originally posted the review. I don't run into those cars nearly as much anymore]

    3.0 out of 5 stars A let down if you've played "NFS: Hot Pursuit" March 5, 2012
    Platform for Display:Xbox 360
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    After being extremely impressed with Hot Pursuit, I picked up this game thinking it would be a step up from that. Not true.

    Don't get me wrong, this is a great game. The graphics are fairly good and overall it's a fun game, but compared to previous NFS games, it's nothing to brag about. Ironically, the aspect of this game that's the most boring and tedious is the running part. At certain points in the game, the police will surround your car and you will be forced to run on foot. In order to jump fences and avoid getting caught, you have to hit certain buttons on the controller. Mess up, and you have to try it again. These feel more like cut-scenes with a little audience participation than any type of challenge. I can understand that the hope was to give the game a little variety so it's not strictly a racing game, but if that was their intent, they should have allowed the player to control where they run and where to hide.

    Also, NFS is known for having the police in the game. Sadly, the cops are only a small part of this game and many races won't even include them. This may not bother you, but if you're buying a game in the NFS series, chances are, you'll be missing that.

    The game does have a lot going for it. Visually the game looks good and the selection of cars is nice and grows as the game progresses. The storyline is a nice element in a racing game, but it's referenced so infrequently that you'll often forget about it. Plus, you goal in each leg of the race is usually to just progress a few spots, so you'll wonder why you needed the story at all.

    Overall, the game is still a lot of fun and I have a feeling that most of the negative reviews are from those who just expected more from the NFS series and were a little let down. But used for a few bucks, it might be worth it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Underated Racing Game August 5, 2012
    By Adam W
    Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    This game is amazing. It has the feel of a great action movie. Before I bought this game, I was kind of skeptical because of some the mediocre reviews it had received. I decided to get it anyway and I am so happy I did. I think it is a must have for anybody who is a fan of arcade racing games.

    3.0 out of 5 stars NFS: The Run of the Mill November 17, 2011
    By stephan
    Platform for Display:Xbox 360
    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
    EA is here again to bring another amazing Need for Speed game, or that's what they try to do here. Need for Speed: The Run at first glance seems to bring NFS fans what they've wanted for a while, which is going back to the roots with awesome action-racing and an awesome storyline. And with it being developed by Black Box(Developers of Most Wanted) and using the all new frostbite 2 engine, makes it even more exiting. This game though, fails to do so in many ways and in the end just feels like a pretty mediocre racing game. This is not saying that this game is bad, it's just that the game could have been way more than it is.

    Story: The story is pretty bland. The idea is interesting, but the execution is off. So you have to race from California to New York. That's it. All the awesome conflicts that you think the driver would go through throughout the game are just not there. You think you would get a story like Fast and Furious, but you don't.

    Story 4/10

    Gameplay: The handling of the cars is more or less like the new nfs: Hot Pursuit. But way more bugged. Sometimes you dont even have to break when going 100mph at a u-turn. You just automatically drift through it. The AI aren't anything special and the awesome destruction events promised by the frostbite 2 engine just don't seem that exhilarating.

    Gameplay 6/10

    Graphics: The graphics of this game don't compete at all with other racing games like Forza 4. And with games like battlefield 3 using the frostbite 2 engine and having great graphics, you'd probably expect the same from this game.

    Graphics 7/10

    Sound: The sounds are okay. They sound like how they're supposed to sound.

    Sound 7/10

    Overall it's a 5/10. It's okay for a rent, but if your looking to buy something that will blow you away. Just RUN.
