Need For Speed The Run an "illicit, high-stakes race across the country. The only way to get your life back is to be the first from San Francisco to New York. No speed limits. No rules. No allies. All you have are your driving skills and sheer determination" or at least that's what it says from the back of the box. But for me Need For Speed The Run opens a new chapter for the guys at EA Games and Black Box.With the awesome Frostbite 2 engine, the game itself looks so real and there are a lot of suspense going on. It has realistic engine and tire slipping sounds.It also has a great sound track.But then again when it comes to the final I don't know 3,5 races of "The Run" its like history repeats itself. You have to defeat a rival you already defeated. And the game also has some "Rubber banding" Issues. Its like you have an advantage of 3 seconds then suddenly you rival is at your side. But over all Need For Speed The Run is a Great Game and I recommend it for guys who like racing games with action.
