Overall, Need For Speed: Payback tried to make better on the 2015 reboot but falls far short. If the developers had put more thought into the final product, it might have turned out to be a great competitor to Forza Horizon. Online is locked until you’ve progressed far enough through single player, but even then it’s ghastly and the story is just as plain as it’s boring. And why did they add that card game?
Need for Speed Payback successfully returns to its Fast and Furious roots with aplomb, but a focus on the grind and a beautiful but empty world means it ultimately falls short of greatness.
Need for Speed Payback is a solid entry to the series, and although it’s not the best, it’s certainly high up on the list. The gameplay is tight, responsive and surprisingly accessible whilst remaining challenging throughout. The story may well indeed be basic in its delivery, but the plot does prove to be energetic and exhilarating nevertheless, however it is sadly held back slightly by a poorly voiced cast of forgettable characters.
