Need for Speed: Rivals Review


If Wikipedia is to be believed, we're currently on the fourth generation of Need for Speed games with the release of Need for Speed: Rivals. With (relatively) new studio Ghost Games at the helm, we expected some radical departure from the work of...

Sound design has never been EA’s weakness, and it shows in Rivals. The cars sound as awesome as they should, especially when you start upgrading it. Crashing produces great cringe-inducing effects of metal bending and glass shattering. The music is...

Tearing up the streets of Redview County.

As with many games of this type, EA delivers a solid soundtrack for you to tear up the streets of Redview County to. A hip-hop/pop mix littered with other genres to fill it out, the soundtrack is diverse enough to have a little something for everyone,...

The Need For Speed series has been a constant on consoles for almost 20 years, and while there have been many ups and downs for the series, it has always drawn interest from racing fans. The series has also seen its fair share of developers, from EA...
