X360A Review: Need for Speed: The Run
Written Tuesday, November 15, 2011 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Need for Speed: The Run is no less than the eighteenth entry in the series, and a slightly new direction. Ostensibly moving away from the traditional set-up of racing for the hell of it, The Run is a story in which you play as Jack, a man up to his eyeballs in debt and on the run from the mob.
Why would the mob want to kill you if you're in a race for money you'll be using to pay them back? Would they rather see you dead than have their cash? Is Need for Speed: The Run worth travelling 3,000 miles for? Can Black Box really take up the reins again after Hot Pursuit did the business last year and Shift 2: Unleashed gave us more NFS earlier this year?
