NFS Heat

Need for Speed, the racing game which I love the most during my childhood days comes a long way. During this long journey of Need for Speed, EA has taken many decision some good some bad, the general consensus is that NFS is losing its sheen. And this year, Need for Speed Heat is launched and puts the franchise back on right track. The latest Need for Speed is all about cars, customizations, and races.

What new in Need for Speed Heat by NFS Official.

Lay it all on the line in the Speedhunter Showdown and complete to win Bank in race, drift, and off-road events. Then take on the city by night and hit up underground street races to build your reputation.

Customize your fleet of cars and personalize your identity behind the wheel. Be unique and make sure everyone knows who you are.

You’ll have to go out of your way to rile up the cops patrolling Palm City during daylight hours. But after dark, the rules change: a rogue task force comes out to play, and they’re on the hunt for you and your wheels.


The opening sequence sets the ball rolling, giving you a gist of the equation between street racers and rogue cops in Palm City, a fictionalized version of Miami and you are at the very bottom of the totem pole who has just arrived on the scene to make a name for yourself. And how do you make a name? By racing, of course!

The NFS Heat divides the races into two parts-Day and Night. The day races are where you enter sanctioned races to earn Bank (aka money) and the night races are illegal ones where you earn Rep by winning races and escaping cops.

There’s no shortage of races on the sprawling map but you cannot skip one half of the day as the modes complement each other, making way for newer cars, customization options, and progress through the weak story. While day races are the usual circuit/sprint/drift events, the night races give the adrenaline coupled with octane-filled pursuits that carry on even after the race. One sure way to lose them is to escape but if you get busted, you not only lose street cred but also money.

NFS Heat Review

All about cars in Need for Speed Heat. 

There are over 125 cars in this new Need for Speed Heat, and while you won’t find an in-cabin camera angel to see the interior of the cars, the exterior is well-detailed. The cars are good to drive but there’s still that arcade feels to it. Customization has also gotten straightforward that allows us to make the car beefier with performance customizations or make it look distinct with visual customizations.

However, we feel the game NFS Heat can certainly improve in some areas. For instance, a dynamic day and night system with an option to speed up would have been great. Also, the unrealistic mowing down of big trees and other objects on the road with just a touch but in-traffic cars built like tank feels a little over-the-top. Nitpicking aside, Need for speed Heat brings back the old charm and despite some of the flaws, it is one of the best in the 25-year old series.
