We're pretty big fans of racing games here at G4 and Need For Speed: The Run is on our radar. Our latest preview for the game took us to the elite highways of the midwest. I'm of course talking about Plains Interstate of Nebraska.
"The format of this leg of the journey involves overtaking three other racers. You focus on one car at a time, where a countdown starts each time you begin your pass. The interesting part about this format is that you don't need to maintain the lead during the entire countdown; you just need to be ahead of your opponent when the counter reaches zero. It's a very sensible approach in a game where other cars stay assertive and can regain the lead at any time. Obviously you can be equally aggressive and it can feel very rewarding if you get your timing right, like getting the gratification of shoving an opponent unto oncoming traffic. It’s harder than it looks as the route is sufficiently stocked with slower cars on the lane you’re flowing with as well as a challenging amount traffic coming from the other direction."
