Here we are again, another chapther of the Need for Speed saga. The good thing (and the bad thing) of these games is that the formula is more or less always the same. The car changes, the scenario changes but the core of the gameplay is always the same one, tried and tested. This is probably the biggest limit of Need for Speed, beautiful and funny, but always the same. It’s like the Fast and Furious movies: always the same micro-plot but there’s action, mscle cars and gorgeous girl. Give these things to a man and he won’t ask for more. Play Generation stated it was the fifth best driving game of 2010…not such a great achievement…


Ci risiamo, un altro capitolo di Need for Speed. Il bello e il brutto di questi giochi è che la formula è bene o male sempre la stessa, ma è sempre divertente. Cambiano le auto e gli scenari ma il fulcro del gameplay è sempre abbastanza fedele alla linea. Probabilmente è questo uno dei grandi limiti di Need for Speed, bello e divertente, ma sempre lo stesso. Un po’ come i film della sga di Fast and Furious: è la stessa microtrama tutte le volte, però c’è azione, machine potenti e gnocca. Date queste cose in pasto ad un uomo e non vi chiederà più altro. Play generation votò Hot Pursuit quinto migior gioco di corse del 2010…non tutto sto gran risultato…
