Need for Speed Rivals
Need for Speed Rivals talks a good talk
about letting players take on the role of the police or criminals.
Problem is I do not feel much like an officer when playing the police in
Need for Speed Rivals. Probably because we have to smash, bash, and
crash into the criminal cars until their life bars are gone.
In the beginning of Need for Speed Rivals players have to train in both the police and the criminals. The criminals race one another when they come across one another. At the same time they also have to avoid the police who are chasing them. Something about resisting arrest feels wrong to me. The amount of damage to public property also feels really wrong to me.
The police are not punished in Need for Speed Rivals for causing damage to cars, innocent bystanders and more. Some of the accidents I caused in Need for Speed Rivals would cost people their lives. This home console video game did not punish me once for all of the death and damage I created.
Need for Speed Rivals has some nasty, rude, and mean comments and attitudes in Need for Speed Rivals. The racing area in Need for Speed Rivals is on the small side. It was one of the first games on the next generation. The graphics in Need for Speed Rivals look nice. The damage in Need for Speed Rivals looks realistic.
I noticed two important things about Need for Speed Rivals. First this is one difficult video game. Second this game pushes for online game play. I hate how EA games are always wanting me to create an account and log in. I also hate the whole push to play online with others. I like to play games with others locally, and not online. The cost of bandwidth and Internet is crazy. I am not paying all that extra money to be treated rudely by others online.
Need for Speed Rivals did not impress me. Hopefully other next gen racing games will be better. Pass on Need for Speed Rivals.
