Need for Speed series
« on: May 07, 2013, 12:36:35 am »
I'm in the middle of a driving cab project for model 2/MAME but also want to add some later PC Games to the cab. I remember playing Need for Speed back in the 90s and thinking how incredible it was for it's time and would like to add 1 or 2 of the later need for speed games to my cab but I haven't played any of the games that have come out in the last 10 years or so.

So I was hoping someone could recommend a recent Need for Speed game that is worth buying. Some of the ones I'm looking at are:
-NFS Underground 1 or 2
-NFS Undercover
-NFS Shift 1 or 2
-NFS World
-NFS Hot Pursuit
-NFS The Run
-NFS Most Wanted (later version)

Shift 1 and 2 are simulators, not arcade games.   Fun, but hard (for me at least).

Hot Pursuit and the Run are very arcade, and I've enjoyed them.  Takes a beefy system to play them at max settings though.  I downloaded World (free) but haven't played it yet.

As for the others, haven't played them.

I haven't played any since the original Most Wanted, but I think it holds up well and is fun to play on a cab.

I picked up Shift 2 and Hot Pursuit out of a bargain bin for $6 each, but haven't installed them yet.
Also got Pro Street.  I think it was only $3.  :lol

It was at Ollies Bargain Outlet if you have one near you.
They also had Split Second and some simbin racers that I already had.

If you have the hard drive space, add everything you can find cheap.  ;D

Porsche Unleashed was pretty epic (in my head, havent played it in years)
No matter one's station in life, the Dance of Death unites us all.

My fav NFS games are still the original hot pursuit games, circa 1998. I only played a bit of the new hot pursuit, but I thought it fit pretty well in line with my expectations from the originals.

Last one I played was the Run. I would call it a NFS sample platter. It pretty much rifles you between a number of game modes. (Race, time trial, police evasion, obstacle course). It's not bad, but everything kinda blurs together since you mostly are going in a straight path the whole time, and many courses have the same feel to them. It's fun, but not that memorable.
