Nur noch zwei mal schlafen, dann erscheint endlich das neue Need for Speed offiziell für die PlayStation 4, Xbox One und den PC. Ab heute sind auch die ersten internationelen Wertungen erschienen die wir euch in einem Überblick präsentieren:Post Arcade – 7/10
Need for Speed is a bold first step in a fresh direction, delivering fun arcade racing that successfully nudged me outside my comfort zone.
Destructoid – 6/10
A presentable but unmemorable time. Focusing on the bright spots helps, and I appreciate the effort, but I won’t be playing this repeatedly
EGM – 7/10
You’d be hard pressed to find an automaker willing to take an extra year to reset their car line much like Ghost Games did here with their second run on Need for Speed. What we get is a more focused and competent racer but one seemingly unwilling to risk standing out from the crowd.
GodisaGeek – 6.5/10
A perfectly serviceable racer with great looks, plenty of customisation options, and passable driving, but it’s a real shame that latest reboot of this franchise had the hallmarks of the greats in the series’ past and could have been truly special.
Gamespot – 8/10
Still, none of that–including the unfortunate difficulty spike I experienced–was enough to ruin Need For Speed’s stunning world, rewarding progression system, and exhilarating driving mechanics. Your move, Vin Diesel.
IGN – 6.3/10
Need for Speed looks the part, sounds the part, and is surprisingly reverent to real-world car culture. I like the direction Ghost has taken here, and I think it’s the right one, but beneath its flashy exterior it’s not quite firing on all cylinders.
AttackoftheFanboy – 3/5
The Need For Speed franchise has certainly had its ups and downs over the years and the Need For Speed reboot has certainly not gotten out to a fast start. The customization and racing itself is fantastic, along with an over the top story that is genuinely fun, but frame rate issues and the insistence to be always online really hold Need For Speed back from a first place finish.
Hardcore Gamer – 3/5
Though it is a product of having an extra year’s development time, Need for Speed feels more like the ground work for what will become a top-notch racing franchise. This is extremely odd to say about a series that saw its first release the same year the first PlayStation released.
USGamer – 4.5/5
Need for Speed returns to its urban car culture roots with a gorgeous-looking, very well designed game that offers five different racing styles to tackle – and a bevy of interesting cars to modify and make your own. Its story is a lot of fun, and it’s set in an impressively large environment that is very enjoyable to drive around. A great arcade racer that’s both challenging and addictive.
GameTrailers – 8.3
2015’s Need for Speed is in many ways more grounded than other recent entries. You don’t throw spike strips at each other and you don’t jump off buildings. It’s more about the inherent excitement of dodging traffic and drifting down the side of a mountain.
PlayStation LifeStyle – 8/10
I enjoyed my time with Need for Speed. Ghost Games is onto something seriously promising with this franchise reboot. However, being unable to pause the game as well as no option to play offline may prove two obstacles that are not surmountable for some players.
GamingTrend – 85
Need for Speed is a game that gets many things right, and brings it back to the glory days of Need for Speed Underground 1 and 2. I have not had this much fun in a racing game in some time, and even though it misses a few marks, it is definitely worth the time of racing fans.
