I'm sure it will be awful, but I'll still rent it. And out in a few months!

Everything post Need For Speed Rivals has been pretty mediocre imho. I'll pass unless this gets glowing reviews.

Hmmm. I havent really enjoyed one since Underground. I just need night time racing with lots of neon lights. Which I did see some in the trailer.

Looks fun, looks cool... but at the end of the day it's a flimsy story, cliched characters and not enough customization to warrant a buy --- basing that assumption on every NFS game since the original Xbox version (which was great). I'll wait until it's free on EA Access in January.

I also hate how the last iteration forced you to race off-road and use ALL the vehicle types. It's akin to swimming levels in adventure games ---- hate when I'm forced to play levels that are frustrating or not in my wheelhouse.

Need for Speed Underground 2 was the last NFS title I thoroughly enjoyed.

Now that I think about it, I did enjoy Undercover on PS3. That had a great story and it was easy to go from one race to another. The highway races were pretty fun.

But I still want Underground 3.

OK, switching to night mode sounds awesome. I think I'm in.
