For those who have suffered through sub-par racing games when various consoles have launched, you won't have to do that with NFS: Rivals. NFS: Rivals takes the best parts of NFS: Hot Pursuit and makes them better. You've got two distinct tracks to go (Cops and Racers# up to 60 ranks, and the game's map is open from the start. You progress by choosing and completing Speedlists. Some of them are very simply #"Bronze any Interceptor event"). Some, near the end, have 5-6 different requirements which all must be filled. Basically, the game will force you to try all the tech options and force you to be consistant if you want to unlock all it has to offer. The newest edition to the series is AllDrive. This means that if you are playing single player and another driver is also playing single player, you games could literally MEET in the same place at the same time. You might be on an interceptor event and see a race blow by you, now it turns into a Hot Pursuit event! Busting human racers as a cop or getting away from a human cop definitely is the highlight of the title, as some epic cat-and-mouse games can happen. Contrary to the other review, you CAN play offline and free roam just fine. There are 80+ jumps & 80 + speed cameras to find. There are no billboards or gates like in NFS: Most Wanted, so yes, if you're one of those perfectionists/play a game to death people, you might run through most of the content fairly quickly. But if you need a next-gen racing game that runs butter smooth with no lag, that improves on one of the best NFS games ever released, then NFS: Rivals is an outstanding choice.
I got this game yesterday for Christmas and it is awesome!! I love the fact that this time you can play as cop or racer and the all drive feature is awesome!! I liked the fact that in last years need for speed you had to find the cars to drive them but this time it is even cooler!! You have to complete a speed wall to unlock cars!! whether you are a racer or cop. Over all it is a great game and I would highly recommend it to a friend!
I bough it for my husband and i ended up playing it too. Great graphics!
The game itself is fun but the multi player and forced registration with ORIGIN is absurd. I bought it on console to avoid these things. My second controller just collects dust now that I bought this game as there is no Split screen available. The "multiplayer" in this games online mode is just about wrecking each other, not really a racing game when online, and anyone can interfere with your race. Makes in very hard to play with your friends or complete any event.
It must be amazing. It has kept him completely hooked to the point that he didn't do dishes tonight. Or, you know, for the past week. I did get him to clean off the baby's high chair(a minor accomplishment).
He's a 21 year old male and he's ecstatic, and that's alright. He can get to chores later, or I can do his share in the morning. So long as he leaves me alone when the baby's asleep and I have a chance to get the rest of the achievements for SCII and beat the Elite 4 in Pokemon Y.
Best for young men and boys who genuinely like cars. Offers both the perspective as an illegal street racer and a police officer(speed enforcement.)
Very addicting. I may pick it up when he has cast it aside for a significant enough period of time that he won't notice I have made a save game.
Thought this would be a 2 player split screen like our old game. It is still a pretty fun game but not for playing with your friends when they are at your house. Would not have bought it if I had known that first.
i dont have a 320hd and the ones for sale are not compatiable dont buy unless you have the hd otherwise if u open the game you cannot return store policy at walmart
Now, this game is very addictive and fun when you are playing alongside friends..But i recently had my game crash and when i rebooted the game my game progress had been reset back down by a considerable amount! I had contacted EA and spoke with a "advisor" and he said there was nothing he could really do but pass my case up to people who would try and figure out what happened, but they would not be able to restore my game progress... I then went on to start leveling up again but it again crashed and my progress was reset.... After i poked around on the EA forums i found tons of people have had this same issue since it's RELEASE and EA has failed to fix this persistant issue! While the game is quite fun when playing with friends, i would not recommend picking up this game as this bug really does ruin the game..
Great Game! Graphics are insane..
I can't get enough of this game!
Would be better if it was two player besides xbox live
My son loves this game the grahics are good. And he really enjoys the game.
I got this game 12/7/2013 I have become addicted to it. Really good graphics and you have so much more freedon to do things and switch between being a racer or a cop. I really need to get in the bed and get some sleep but I am having way too much fun wiith this. I only had my PS3 about 2 months and I tried Battlefield which is a great game and a few others. But since I got this game i seem to have forgotten all of the other games. Nothing like driving games to keep your interest because there is so many ways to keep the excitement going unlike the shooter games that I played on my PC for years. Get this and you won't be sorry i can promise you that.
Yes I am an old guy at 51 with grown children enjoying myself.
this game rocks! and only walmart had the game with any extra content. and a better price than the " game place "
Awesome as usual. Get this one.
I LOVE SPEED IN 1080P BLU RAY HI DEF THE GAME IS MORE INTENSE W/ THE FEEL OF REALISM!!!
The graphics awesome, the game play great, the bugs can be frustrating if you crash in mid jump, and the only negative thing I can point at is that it has no real story line for either the cops or racers making the game feel that once you get your racing fix its off to something else.
My grandson liked the new game need for speed. He liked it because it was free roam.,and the Al's were pretty smart.
