Unfortunately, the Xbox One version of Need For Speed contains a glut of minor yet persistent technical problems that aren’t nearly as noticeable or, in some cases, simply don’t exist on PS4. On the day of the game’s release, for example, I was randomly disconnected from EA’s servers six times in under 90 minutes of play. Not only did this abruptly interrupt my experience, I also had to reconnect to the network, find new players, and reload the game itself each and every time.

The cars are fun to drive, and the open world, though it feels a little small, has the right amount of variety in its makeup to provide different types of races. Lastly, the FMV is occasionally hilarious due to its inept acting and tragic attempts to "use" "cool" "lingo." But the whole thing is far more bland and repetitive than a game about illegal street racing should be.

There are so many glaring flaws right up front; the framerate bottoms out, the story characters forced upon the players are atrocious and the always online requirement simply eats up bandwidth while adding nothing to the experience. When it hits that perfect line, however, this manages to be a satisfying and beautiful experience.
