NEED FOR SPEED
We thought reboots were about trimming the fat and focusing on what a series does best, but clearly EA and Ghost have a different interpretation. Need For Speed sheds the customary subtitle and gains a branching, firstperson, live-action narrative. Some much-trumpeted gameplay ‘innovations’ boil down to a central XP system powered by speed, style, car mods, crew performance and upsetting the cops. Nothing new there, then. It looks fantastic, at least.
