After taking a year off in 2014, Need for Speed is back this year in a somewhat rebooted form. It seems to be taking a lot of cues from Need for Speed: Underground which is pretty inspired in my book. This series is at its best when it is being more outrageous.

Also, this game looks gorgeous as all hell. The FMV, which takes a precedent here is still certainly weird and jarring but I kinf od dig it. It is silly in a way I can get behind.
