Need for Speed: The Run

It's called The Run. Three-thousand miles of unforgiving asphalt from San Francisco to New York. No speed limits. No rules. No allies. Armed with just his guts and instinct, Jack battles a field of the most notorious drivers ever assembled. Dense city streets, icy mountain passes and narrow canyons push his driving skills to the limit. Relentlessly hunted by the police, as well as the men who want him dead, Jack is racing for his life.

CDs in package were damaged - EA refused to send new
Download takes hours due to slow Origin servers
Game freezes within a minute of game-play unless you underclock your NVidia GPU: yes, I said underclock.
Numerous contacts with EA/Origin support were frustrating; not helpful

The Graphics are perfect. but the Gameplay is awful, If you get a little side tracked you have to restart from the checkpoint. The good part is that at some points you can also play as the person. But I think previous NFSs were better.

This game is perfect for: casual gamers
Great graphics and responsive control and that's about it. The scene is beautiful and some times I want to slow down to enjoy the view.
Game play is a different story, you repeat the same thing again and again in different area and you will be bored in a few hours. Storyline is the worst part of the game, it's OK for a movie but so lame for a game.
This game is perfect for rental. You'd be sorry if you buy it.

From the looks ands sounds of this game it'll be one of the better NFS games from the street racing series. I loved NFS:HP and this sounds like it may take the NFS series to better and fresher look. Looking forward to this hope the time frame doesn't change to much if at all.

Review 7 for Need for Speed: The Run
not another Need for speed game!

last year, need for speed hot pursuit was released (i got the limited edition) and earlier this year, shift 2 unleashed was released this year! when does EA take breaks on making Need for speed games to focous on other unrelated games?! i hope that this one has good graphics like shift 2 unleashed, and insane missions. unless they slack off on this one like Activision did on shrek superslam, this should be a good game.
