Ghost Games returns with their fourth Need For Speed entry, and it resembles a mix of prior games like Underground, ProStreet, and 2005’s Most Wanted. Now, Need For Speed Heat lays the melodrama of cops vs racers on rather thick, but the dichotomy of day & night is what takes center stage. It feels like the game is running on all cylinders this time, and is such a triumph for the series. Need For Speed Heat is the most exciting racing game of 2019.
Overcooked Special Edition is truly special for the Nintendo Switch, as it is not only the game, but all the DLC that’s been released thus far. Now, I had missed out on the Overcooked sensation late last year, and this was the first time I got to see what it was about. This is a game that you can’t understand in screenshots, or even some videos. This is a game that you will understand its utter chaos by playing either by yourself or trying to coordinate with friends and family.
Need For Speed as developed by Ghost Games is a gorgeous looking game with a solid car selection all of which can be customized to handle how you want, even if the races that revolve around this comes off as uninspired. Thankfully the actual racing is fun so long as you can deal with the rubber-banding AI. With a two years for development time, Need For Speed is a fistbump-ridden reboot that recalls more Need For Speed Underground than the original game that kicked off the series.
After a short gameplay video (which was the same video from EA’s Press Conference, they showed off the game. And I can confirm that what was seen in the video is exactly how the game looks. It is absolutely stunning. Need For Speed is back, which is a reboot for the series that covers the series’ expansive history, hoping to do something for every kind of player.
