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.Read more ›
Don't Buy If You Use A Wheel!
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.
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.
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.
