First off, I was very excited for this game. I've enjoyed all of the recent open-world Need for Speed games and I've been with the series since NFS II over a decade ago. I wanted to try this one because it got pretty decent reviews and looked good. I was eager to try a Frostbite game other than Battlefield, too.

Contrary to a previous review, this game DOES run on Windows 8. However, Need for Speed Rivals suffers from being an EXTREMELY POOR PC port. The game is simply missing a lot of the eye candy that is present in the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. I'm running max settings at 2560x1440, and it still looks awful compared to the next generation consoles. This should NOT be the case on PC; in fact, it's unacceptable that in this day and age a PC game on max settings would look worse than it does on less-powerful consoles. The fancy bloom lighting from the PS4 version is missing, for example, and there is no option to turn on anti-aliasing (despite the fact that Frostbite has a great FXAA implementation that barely impacts performance at all) so all the jaggies look awful.

Worst of all, the game is capped at 30 frames per second, maximum. This is an absolute deal-breaker for me. What other modern 3D PC game is artificially capped at 30 frames per second? I have a very powerful gaming PC (Core i7-980X at 4.6 and dual GTX Titans) which is more than capable of running Battlefield 4 at maximum settings at over 60 frames per second with supersampling AA turned up a bit, and that game is running on the same Frostbite 3 engine that this game is. Why should I have to be locked to 30 frames per second? Unlocking the FPS cap through launch commands messes the game up and everything ends up going along at 2x speed.

Racing game where you can't use a Racing Wheel!! Impressive! Glad to know they have the brightest minds working to create these games and forgetting the obvious! Brilliant!

Don't Buy If You Use A Wheel!

Sadly a big flop... The game has been very badly adopted for the pc user. There is a noticeable in-game lag in the frame rate and after a few minutes of playing and completing the first couple of races, I realized that this is just hopeless. Because of the frame rate, the control of the vehicle becomes near impossible as you can not perceive your input with a stuttering in-game video. playback. At the moment I am on Season 8 or racing on the Grid 2 - and in my opinion a superb game with the most intuitive, realistic and controllable steering physics model, that I have played in a few years. It's sad, but it seems EA Need for Speed Series has gone down hill in recent years and with that inevitably, the company is going to loose its 'pc clientele' as there are plenty of talented new development houses and labels, that are ready to explore and push the boundaries of PC gaming.

If you like hackers and lag, this is a great game. I have owned it for the last 24 hours. I bought it direct from Origin. It took about an hour to download with my 12M connection. About average for modern games. Physics were better and drivability improved over the last "Most Wanted" offering. After getting through the tutorial levels I settled in for about 10 hours of non-stop play. Here are my observations. First, you play online exclusively. This is beyond the "persistent authentication" of Steam and Origin, you simply must have a good broadband connection with good ping or you won't be able to play. Next, any time another human player enters your bubble of activity, prepare for massive lag with the player warping all around you madly. If you are a cop, forget trying to wreck someone who is never consistently in your game reality. Behind you, beside, in front blinking all around unpredictably. This is absolutely unplayable. The very nastiest part of this game is hackers. Nothing like having a guy warping all around you madly zapping you with pursuit tech over and over. No cool down and no chance to escape while you are killed like a helpless baby. This game is obviously of BETA quality. I wanted it to be great but sadly... it sucks.
This is very important. EA's Origin Great Game Guarantee? YES. They will refund your money within 24hrs of activation. EA support appears to be much improved over past experiences.

Don't Buy if you were wanting to use a wheel. It doesn't support the use of wheels. SHOULD HAVE BEEN STATED!
I am getting so tired of getting ripped off by EA that this will be my last purchase from them. Who and the heck makes a racing game and doesn't support steering wheels? Oh, EA I guess. What a bunch of clowns.

The visuals are quite a regression from Need for Speed Most Wanted (NFS:MW). I was aware of the 30 frames-per-second limit before purchasing the game, but hoped this spec would be compensated by other graphical tricks. It is not. The movement feels choppy, and the textures look jagged and blocky. I thought this feeling might fade after an hour or so of gameplay, but it is difficult to stop noticing how dated this game looks.

I love the cops/racers concept, and hoped NFS Rivals would be that dynamic in a world that looked as good as NFS:MW. Ugh - it's not even close.

I'll happily update my review if patches from EA improve the experience.

Minor note: You cannot truly pause the game during single player. If you are racing, the start button brings up the menu screen, but your car keeps moving forward and the other racers (computer controlled, not live players) pass you by. This is painful because after a race you want to head back to the safe house and bank your points. So playing one event at a time, you may be ten minutes away from an ideal moment to pause. Kids, spouse, phone call --- you are going to lose the event you are currently in and risk the points you've accumulated.
