There hasn't been a good NFS since Most Wanted, some say Carbon was the last but it's down to preference. This game leaves good impressions within the first 60% of the game. However once you go past that it's completely crap. So I decided to give it a try, I could return it in 7 days for a refund soo... Here's my impressions. Customization appears to be in depth but it isn't. I started off with the BRZ couldn't mod the taillights, or headlights apparently there's 'no parts' yet the BRZ has probably the most supported kits and lights from any JDM car right now. So I later saved enough for a Supra SZ-R, oh and guess what no major brand body kits like ABFlug or Bomex at all. They have their logos in the game but no parts. Let alone no TRD parts either... Performance parts have no branding whatsoever like the last NFS I played with parts. If you're going to spend money on logos, at least include their inventory.. You're forced to use an exotic car to progress, otherwise the AI just fly past you and you cannot catch up to them at all, even after blocking them into traffic or a wall. So you're forced to save up for an exotic to just beat them in a few races. You can't customise exotic cars a whole lot, so there goes the "customisation is back!!" remarks. Then comes the drifting which AI can smash into you, which causes you to lose your score yet they don't lose theirs. Then comes the physics, your car will gain speed if you drift so tuning your car to 'drift' will allow you to turn corners at very high speed. Yet a car tuned for grip slows right down in corners and even keeping a racing means nothing. The game runs all in real time, so when you're racing with crews your pack shows on the map of other players. This means if you're going in one direction, there might be another race coming towards you. It ruins your progress in the races, I've been hit head on by other players just trying to complete their story mode. Major flaw. Sure NFS isn't a sim, and isn't trying to be. When handling becomes favoured in such stupid ways I have to adapt to the crap factor of the game. I prefer arcade physics over sim physics all the time, but this just doesn't feel like either of them. Another thing worth mentioning is the game doesn't install on the Xbox One, or runs off the disc. It's like it's always streamed off somewhere, yet there's no delay in controls or animations.. That being said, you need a very solid internet connection to play the game too.
