Our XB1 videos of Need For Speed

Our XB1 videos of Need For Speed

Available since yesterday on EA Access, Need for Speed has finally been given the Gamersyde treatment. Here are our videos of the Xbox One version of the game. As in the beta, the handling isn't that great when starting the game. We'll see if upgrading the car and tuning it will improve the driving sensations.
Update: 4 new videos added.

Freeride #1
Race & Police
Freeride #2
Sprint #2
Sprint #3

Any real graphic improvements since the beta?

Thanks for the captures.
Has a "TXAA" feeling.
Aliasing is perfectly under control, but the sharpness of the image suffers from it.

Looks fun but also looks like another shallow game that gets old far before the half way mark. I've never played a NFS game that was fun all the way through the game other than most wanted

I completed Underground dozens of times, great game.

This game looks beautiful/amazing! If I could offer my heart on a tray, after being removed by a fork dipped in table salt....that's at least 8 pounds of beef. That's how much I'm hyped for this game!

Hmm. It needs some speed, that's for sure. Reminds me of Tokyo Highway Challenge 2 in that respect; no matter what the speedo was telling you, it always felt like you were going the same speed!

Pretty though, and the depth of field is nicely done.

Is there a cockpit view?

i'm usually all for post processing effects, but somehow this takes it too far. it's just a dark blurry mess tbh. really don't like the look of it.

It would be cool with day/night cycle.

I tested the beta on One and it´s one of the most boring games I played in years. Poor sense of speed indeed.

remind me never to get in a car when driftwood is driving! what res does the xbone version run at? graphics look very good but the city seems kind of stale.

I'm not the one driving since I didn't even write the news article. :)

You can see the available cameras on video Freeride #2, no cockpit unfortunately :(

I was really looking forward to this like game, but there is something off with it and I do not know what it is. Maybe the lack of sense of speed, maybe the so blurred graphics, maybe the handling... thanks god I could try it before buying thanks to EA Access.

Thanks. I watched only Freeride #1 TBH. :-)

Gfx are amazing in the night. The best so far I guess. But for some reason the sense of speed is little low ?
Commented on 2015-10-29 16:08:26
About the sense of speed....maybe the car is not tuned enough yet. Acceleration is obviously lazy, no turbo?, they had to keep it low. When You go hardcore on tuning parts, the sense of speed will increase. Maybe.

That's weird. I thought this game would be right up your alley when I played the Beta.

I have to say 1 thing about this game. It has the worst beta ever. That added watermark jumped all around while racing! even in the middle of the screen -_-
Commented on 2015-10-30 07:56:13
1st video, that is the SLOWEST 123 MPH I have ever seen. Looked more like 30 MPH. Probably the worst sense of speed I have seen in a racing game.
