FIRST 10 MINUTES | X360, PS3, PC Wednesday, November 16, 2011 | 12:10 PM

Our videos of NFS The Run

Developed by Black Box, Need For Speed: The Run was released in North America yesterday and will be officially available in Europe tomorrow. Until we receive a copy of the 360 version of the game, we are proposing you some PC footage in 1080p and 30 fps (no matter what the video description says). Why 30 fps you might ask? Well, mainly because the game is locked at this framerate on PC too, making it a simple port with only better resolution and V-sync to best its console counterpart. Here are a bunch of videos of the extremely short (but nonetheless pretty fun) single player mode so you know what to expect. Despite the many challenges available and its online mode, it is hard to recommend the game at full price because of its ridiculously short length. A rental might be more indicated, if that's even possible where you live that is.

Was Hot Pursuit a better PC port?

Definitely better! This has no sense of speed (not even close to smooth..) because of the 30fps cap

More like two hours of actual racing, not including cutscenes, retries and loading screens. :/

And they blocked Forza from having Porshe in their game because of this piece of shit!?! What a joke.

I still play Criterion's Hot Pursuit game to this day. Looking forward to see what they're next game will be.

I wouldnt trust BlackBox to make Mobile phone games, terrible dev team.

the console version is low resolution and so damn blurry. but it is kinda cool to play in first person... but i rather play split/second for the rush, or criterion's hot pursuit for the open-world tracks.

i see the same artifacts (green flashes, orange triangles) in this game that I see in BF3. Looks it is a feature of the engine
