Need for Speed Rivals

Need for Speed Rivals' boisterous and brash open-world driving design gets enormous mileage thanks to some amazingly fluid online functionality. This is a stand-out launch game in every regard, and if you have any interest in this sort of action-heavy racing, here's the best way to experience it this year.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted

Need for Speed: Most Wanted is a fun but flawed game that incorporates many elements of the open-world racing great Burnout Paradise, with varying degrees of success. Although the multiplayer gives the game its best shot at trouble-free fun, a drab single player and numerous design quirks leave Criterion's latest a fun racing game that's clearly short of its full potential.

Need For Speed: The Run

Granted, it has a number of issues but like a Jerry Bruckheimer summer blockbuster, The Run is good, mindless fun. Racing purists may thumb their nose at it, but if you’re the kind of person who prefers Burnout over Gran Turismo, you’ll eat it right up.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

It’s without question that Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is one of the, if not the most enjoyable racing games of 2010. When you look at just the quality of the experience and match that up with how much replay value Hot Pursuit has this is a no brainer purchase for any arcade racing fan out there. Like with Burnout Paradise, this once again makes me excited for whatever else is up Criterion’s sleeve.

Need for Speed Carbon

Need for Speed Carbon is not so much a carbon copy of last year’s game, it is more of just an upgraded version with a new city and some new features. Is this a bad thing? No, not at all as fans of the series really already know what they are getting into, and if you have like it in the past you will definitely continue to like it in Need for Speed Carbon.
