Say what you want about the decision to add out-of-car moments to the Need for Speed franchise; at least the developers of Need for Speed: The Run are adding something different to the racing series. The great Adam Rosenberg (who never, ever leaves his car in real life) had the chance to try out the game recently, and brought back a preview. Here's a excerpt:
"On the play side, racing fans can expect new and old challenges, including sprint races, time attacks, rival battles, cop pursuits, survival scenarios (like speeding away from an incoming avalanche) and big action moments, like the helicopter-on-car chase shown at E3. The underlying story also creates some unpredictability here, the potential for in-race events to occur that completely alter the flow of your play."
