Need For Speed: No Limits Review
EA has lately launched its new racing game, Need for Speed: No Limits in the Google Play Store and like other NFS games, it brings great graphics, a simple storyline and heaps of underground races. But does it offer anything new? Let’s find out.
The game settles securely in the arcade section of the racing scale. You are mainly fighting with the law like jumping off bridges, smashing through roadblocks, evading the cops and you get points for bumping into some innocent road user perhaps when going home after a hard day at work. The game is a bit on the evil side, but then again, racing games are never meant to be inspirations for the real world.
You can improve your roaring supercars, but there’s no real fiddling here. The controls are pretty simple. Swipe up to fire your nitro boost, tap left or right to steer, and swipe down to start a drift. Complex things like braking and accelerating and are all handled for you.
There are different levels of challenges. There’s one all about driving on nitro boost pads, one all about jumps and one that includes keeping up with an opponent and overtaking them before the end of the course. Races are available in the special timed events, an underground mode, tournaments and races that focus on a specific model of car. You earn rewards for racing cars which helps you to either upgrade your car or help you achieve new ones.
The story line is however, not that great but there is a lot here in terms of overall content. There are about 30 cars in the game, 900 race events and players can reach upto some hundred levels. You can make progress through the stages with 38 race tracks in different cities. The cars have their own set of customization’s and upgradeable parts. To win more parts you have to win more races.
Like other Need for Speed games, this one looks really great with all the reflections, smoke and other unrealistic facets of car racing. You could barely find a dropped frame which really helps with the overall experience.
However, eventually it will stop being so easy to level up and the sessions will drop from hours to just 10 minutes. Which means you’ll have to purchase gold with real money to refill the gas tank or else wait for a certain amount of time before you could race again.
Need for Speed: No Limits is a faithful mobile rendition that features simple, intuitive controls, addictive gameplay and loads of options to keep car racers happy. EA has justly incorporated the entire “freemium” method and have detached the pay-to-progress option from the pure racing action. Yes you can also opt for buying progress as there are some really exotic cars waiting to be unlocked, and it is the eagerness of getting them into your garage which will perhaps make you think about spending the in-game cash.
