Need for Speed Heat is a mosaic of existing ideas but it is easily the most impressive Need for Speed game in years. There are intervals, after I'm prowling the streets in my slammed 180SX, the exhaust barking my have customized tone although the tarmac is bathed in a sickly neon underglow as Latino hip-hop thumps out the automotive's souped-up soundsystem, that Need for Pace Heat comes so tantalisingly close to to delivering on the traditional Rapidly & Livid fantasy.
Need for Speed Heat gives you the chance to drive the hybrid-electric performance, Polestar 1, for the first time ever, as well as some of the most iconic auto brands in the world. The game also offers the deepest customisation the series has ever seen, including a range of options for both performance and style. Some may say that the new game didn't have any serious competition since 2015's Need for Speed and 2017's Payback were not the games players hoped they would be but it looks like Heat brings some new features to the table, which aim to be a breath of fresh air in the franchise.
EA has their latest racing title to strike the industry in the type of Need to have for Pace: Warmth, and for the most element it seems to be like the sport is executing with some blended reviews. Taking inspiration from Miami - a vibrant city with a multicultural blend of music, cool street art and stunning night lights - Palm City is a street-racer's paradise.
Need for Speed Heat is ultimately enjoyable, an experience that can provide some high highs alongside some fairly low lows. During the day, you will compete in sanctioned race events that will reward you with cash. If you manage to finish a night of racing without getting in trouble with them, you'll get a stack of Rep, one of the main reward currencies.
