Need For Speed: Rivals fuses some of the best elements of Hot Pursuit and Most Wanted. The exotic cars and scenic open-world setting of Rivals make for exhilarating races and chases while the ability to play as either racers or cops adds some variety to the mix. The locked framerate can be overcome, but it’s still a baffling inclusion and the heavy emphasis on online play will also be an annoyance to solo players. However, despite the flaws, this is still a great entry in the series and a lot of fun to play.
Gameplay: Fast and frantic, but some players might find it a little too easy.
Graphics: The Frostbite 3 engine is used to great effect in this game.
Sound: Decent soundtrack, overly dramatic voice acting, and good sound effects
