Good game marred by poor design decision,
This review is from: Need for Speed: The Run - PC (Video Game)
Ok, I will stay away from my gut reaction to one star this game as it is actually fun, and the graphics are good (with one major caveat). The caveat is that the game is capped at 30 FPS on PC with no way around it. A twitch reflex game like a driving game deserves all the frames you can throw at it.
The developer chose to do this to prevent the frame rate from jumping all over the place based on whatever was happening on screen at the time. This is definitely useful for consoles which have aging hardware; however, if you have a recent graphics card, there is absolutely no reason you could not maintain 60 FPS easily.
What is frustrating about this is that there is really no additional testing to do for enabling this. It is a freebee from a developement standpoint - so not sure why the developers chose to prevent higher frame rates.
As a side note, there also is no way to enable AA in the game. Not as big of a deal though as the 30 FPS cap.

like someone will find a way to take of the that cap though, some ini editing or what not? They did it in fallout 3 and such. Good heads up though, very noticeable difference between 30 and 60, and games like these I want the eye candy..

I guess my hopes of 120fps are dashed...

For AA you can go through your video card driver to force it anyway.
