I know this is going to get downvoted to death, but here it is anyway. Let me start by explaining that the loot boxes aren’t pay to win by any means. Last time I checked, neons and horns don’t make your car faster. Not to mention the fact that you get a box every time you level up (a la Overwatch, which happened to get GOTY last year). The game itself is pretty good. The car list is decent, and every car has a lot of customization options on it. The story is ok, but I don’t know anyone that expects the stories in any NFS game to be groundbreaking. There are some very interesting missions in the game that are almost reminiscent of heists in GTA which I like and they spice up the gameplay a bit. You can also replay these missions anytime after you unlock them, so they’re not a one time only thing.
The most glaring issues with this game is the lack of online free roam and the strange car upgrade system. The game isn’t anywhere near as grindy as Destiny 2, especially if you know what you’re doing, the best way to get better parts is to play races and trade in parts for part tokens. Money should never be an issue as the game hands out $10-$20 thousand per race late game.
The open world is large and contains a large desert, a Las Vegas inspired city, a mountain/forest, and some canyons. There are no cops in free roam which can be considered a good thing if you don’t like to be bothered, but for most people its disappointing and makes the world less interesting. You can still get into pursuits, although they have been limited to random locations around the world and missions.
My final verdict as of now is a 7, as the game for the most part is good, but there are some issues here and there. Keep in mind that Ghost (the developer) will provide free updates and hopefully improve upon the game in the coming months. In my opinion, the loot crates don’t ruin the game because you get tons of them just by playing the game, and they give you cosmetic items that don’t affect the gameplay at all. If you’re considering buying this game, I would wait for a sale unless you’re a die hard NFS fan. If you aren’t into the series I suggest you consider buying if this goes on sale for $40. Thanks for taking the time to read the wall of text that is my review, I hope it helps.
