Welcome to Redview County, where a street-racing rivalry between cops and racers never stops as both sides compete in an all-out war to take over the social, local and national media and earn the best cars, mods and technology. Risk Everything. Trust No One.
- High-Stakes Rivalry – Racers are lone wolves out for their own glory; driving agile cars built for high speed racing and epic chases. Cops work in teams to hunt down and bust racers using the full power of the police force. Switch roles at any time and watch the stakes grow in an all-new scoring system that lets you put your speed points on the line to earn even greater rewards.

No lobbies. No waiting. Paths will cross as races and pursuits collide, creating a world where no two moments or events will ever be the same.
- Your Car, Your Identity — Power up your car with the latest performance upgrades and technology, and personalize your car with fresh paintjobs, liveries, custom license plates, rims, and decals to show off your style to your friends and rivals. Save different configurations and keep a variety of car packages available to leave your mark no matter the situation.
- Pursuit and Evasion Tech — Intense racing moments are made even more thrilling with access to technology and upgrades customized to each side of the law. Racers can choose evasion technology from jammers to electromagnetic pulses. Cops are outfitted for aggressive busts with shockwaves, roadblocks, helicopter support and more. No matter the side you choose, use technology to keep you one step ahead of your rivals.

Pros- Awesome graphics, I would say slightly better looking than the latest Most Wanted game. The landscapes are varied and the best I have seen in any NFS game. The cars sweat a lot, but it looks nice. I have an i5 3570k, HD 7870, and 8GB of RAM with this game is maxed out and it runs very smoothly. I wish it wasn't capped at 30fps, but for most it really shouldn't be an issue.
-The cars are fantastic. It is mostly all exotic beautiful expensive cars (you don't start out in anything cheap). Ferrari I missed you!
-The driving is very similar to Hot Pursuit, so is the gameplay and races. Yes you can make the car do a 180 or turn on a dime.Cop chases are super fun and difficult. It's no easy task to get away from them especially the more heat you get. Getting busted has consequences (you lose all the speed points you have been racking up).
Mixed feelings- The online is nice sometimes when you want to race real drivers, but they like to smash into you a lot. It can be laggy, but I have not had too many issues with it. I mostly play single player and enjoy that mode the most.
The bad- There is one persistent bug that really pisses me off. I can be driving along and all of a sudden my car will freeze in place while the environment loads up. The problem with this is it can last anywhere up to 5 seconds and all the while everything but you continues on (the racers, the cops, and the timer all continue while you are temporarily frozen in place).
- No wheel support for a racing game...
- Barely any cars. Only 24 cars for racers and 24 cars for cops. Maybe I am just spoiled by Gran Turismo and Forza.
- Crappy car customization. It's enough to keep me happy, but don't expect Midnight Club level customization. Heck even GTA V had better car customization.
- Absolutely no way to pause the game (what nincompoop decided that) I understand for online, but even in single player you can't pause.
- EA sucks
Overall I feel like this is a combination of Hot Pursuit and Most Wanted (the latest ones). I enjoyed both of those games much better than this one. I will say this game is still quite a bit of fun on PC and if they fixed a few things it could be even better. If you are really desperate for a racing game then this one is good enough despite it's problems that I could recommend it.
I say do not buy this game. PC or Console. Boycott this garbage. It's a shame I've loved just about all the Need for Speed Series of games up until the last 2 or 3 poor efforts. Force these losers to go out of business, finally. Maybe a company completely different will pick up the series. A company who cares about the buyer. PC or Console owner. No bias, as EA Games seems to have total bias against the PC.
Graphics: Look fantastic for the most part. The 30 fps lock doesn't bother me as the game still has a great sense of speed and is very fluid. There is certainly a little aliasing (this is visible on every version of the game I've played) by default but it isn't particularly bad, and can at least partially be remedied with SweetFX.
Comparison with other platforms: Having played the PS4 and Xbox One versions around Xmas time (thanks to family dropping by), I can safely say the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions of this game all look about the same on my setup. The PC version went a slightly more overkill on the physic/debris but it runs and looks nearly identically on all three platforms. Using the Xbox 360 controller with the game is seamless, buttons automatically change from "Press Enter" to "Press A" when the controller is detected, rumble support works fine.
Gameplay: I haven't played a NFS in a while. With that said, this game is an all around blast. Seriously just a lot of fun. While there are still issues with Host Migration occurring way too often, at least it doesn't kick you out of your event/return you to your garage. Some people will have an issue with the controls, on the gamepad it took a couple runs to get used to them, but it has since been pretty simple.
Overall: It's a great game that could use a few technical tweaks (the Frostbite engine is very capable obviously, but many of the Command Line modifications break the game outright (the 60 fps one, for instance, caused my car to get stuck a lot, and frankly it was a bit like having a seizure in other spots.)) but it's still one of the most enjoyable, most visually appealing racers to come out in quite some time, though there is definitely a little room for improvement. Highly Recommended.

but when I tried to amp up some fps by reducing resolution, it froze. no keystroke make it work again.
it kept freezing each time I tried to reduce resolution.
