It's down to personal taste, of course, but I hate Need for Speed's soundtrack. It's the most offensive ear garbage I've been subjected to in quite some time. Engine noises are nice though, innit.
Lovely rainy cars, neon-drenched city streets, Need for Speed is pretty. Integrating digital cars into live-action scenes looks slightly pants, though.
Handling that you can tune to your specifications, superb customisation and solid racing gameplay. The AI can sometimes resort to dirty tactics, which can be hugely annoying, but otherwise, Need for Speed is fun.
Stupid live-action bits and a pointless always-online bit mar an otherwise decent open-world to razz around in. There are also very few cars to choose from, although the wealth of customisation compensates a little bit.
Across its 30 achievements, you'll manage to see all the requisite bits of Need for Speed. The entire list is focused upon progression and the odd challenge. Nice and straightforward.
