Need for Speed: The Run Is Two Hours Of Racing

Can I just walk it?

Uh oh. This doesn’t sound very good. According to the video review for EA’s upcoming transamerican racer, it’s only got around two hours of actual racing. That figure doesn’t include the cut scenes, menus or retries but it does account for all the actual interactive game elements.

That seems shockingly short and with the structure of the game being tied into a story, the prospect of replaying sections might be limited too. Of course, two hours of the best racer ever might be well worth retail price but that depends on NfS: The Run having something amazing hidden under its bodywork.

We’ve been trying to get review code ourselves but as yet, we’ve had no response from EA.

    Portal wasn’t much longer. Look where that went… Somehow I think this might be different though.

    That’s shocking if true.

    I didn’t feel it was worthy of $60 when I tried the demo and this (if true) would compound that feeling. If it doesn’t sell well, it’ll drop faster in price. If that happens, I’ll give it a chance.

    Yeah, this is going to be a rental first, then a $40 or less purchase depending how much I like it.
