Need for Speed 2015 reboot screenshots and trailer

The latest Need for Speed has been announced and it’s basically Need for Speed Underground 2 but just titled Need for Speed to give the game the feel of a complete reboot. Back are deep customisation that is not only cosmetic but also effects performance, as well as an open world to explore and a full narrative set in an urban world of car culture. Ghost Games, the guys who made the last game in the franchise are yet again making this one and we’re sure there will be more to see of this game in a couple of weeks...

Shift 2 Unleashed review

When I put the Shift 2 disc into my Xbox 360 and drove around a couple of laps to let it judge how much assistance I needed I was expecting it to be a simulation. The good news is that it isn’t a game along the lines of Gran Turismo because I find them terribly dull to play. Instead, you get the feel of realism but also a very visceral experience as you jostle for position with your competitors round some very tough tracks.

Need for Speed Undercover review

It’s almost the end of another year and each year seems to bring another version of the racing franchise Need For Speed. This new one sees you infiltrating a gang of street racers in order to uncover some organised crime and drug syndicates. Just how racing against them somehow leads to arrests isn’t quite clear. Still, it’s an excuse to race around the city streets and avoid the cops. Even though you’re on their side they don’t know that so there’s another excuse for some high-speed racing and a high probability of losing your no claims bonus. The game claims...
