Great

It’s a great game the soundtrack has a few words in it but no f word only the b word and people do say s and others but that’s it. The cops are intense but other then that it’s fun and if you are new the nfs I played the mobile version of most wanted but new to console so if your new to the console or pc versions of the game it’s a little hard but on the easy mode it’s not to bad. And in the title screen it says to obey the law and where your seatbelt. And lastly the main characters are nice but Not to spoil it but there is protesting in it

Best NFS game in years!!!

Yes, finally it's about time. NFS is back and better than ever!! EA has now returned back to roots with this latest installment in the franchise. The developer Ghost Games did a phenomenal job creating it. They listened to their fans!! Shows that they cared to give us what we wanted and exceeded our expectations. So far so good I'm enjoying it!! Definitely has those nostalgia type of vibes like the Underground era, Most Wanted 2005, Carbon and Pro Street. What a great combination to give us those memories of what we been growing up with all those years!! The customization is on a different level of body kits, paint, rims, etc,. And for once, no more microtransactions!!! Stunning graphics and textures it's so appealing to look at especially if you have a Ultra HD 4K tv. I love the idea you can change the time cycle to Day and Night. Makes it even better and challenging. I love a good challenge,
and it's unique. Awesome soundtrack too!! Along with intense racing and police pursuits!! There is some quite of language but by now, I'm sure all kids grew up with games that having cursing and so it's nothing new to them. Anyone can play it, totally fine with that. Besides it's a racing game, so you can have a blast with this one without worrying what your kids are playing. A little violent but it's sometimes has to deal with hot pursuits and illegal racing. Just as long as your kids don't portray that out in the real world and know it's just a game then go ahead let them play it. Overall, very refreshing and fun game!!! 9.5/10.
