While Need for Speed Heat feels a little more like a mosaic of existing concepts rather than something especially trendsetting, Ghost has certainly scraped these ideas from some of the most-loved games in the now 25-year-old series. Heat doesn’t always sizzle but it’s definitely much hotter than I’d expected. This is easily the most impressive Need for Speed game in many years.
In short, we think Need for Speed Heat is a step in the right direction for the series. The one draw-back for us was the idiotic manoeuvres of the AI-controlled cars, otherwise, we enjoyed most of the content it offered and we can finally say that we're excited once again about what the future holds for the franchise.
Need for Speed Heat ist pures Mittelmaß: Die simple Fahrphysik sorgt zwar für solides Arcade-Flair, aber die Serie hat mit ihren lahmen Geschichten und fragwürdigen Designentscheidungen immer noch zu viel Sand und Staub im Getriebe.
