EA and Origin are giving PC gamers the opportunity to take Need for Speed for a spin.
Need for Speed is an OK game, Tim particularly enjoyed the cheesy characters. Here’s what he had to say about the game when we reviewed it earlier this year.
Need for Speed does fantastically well at providing a varied and entertaining arcade racer which doesn’t take itself even remotely seriously. It creates a phenomenal sense of speed, and when starting to approach the sound barrier, your car really does feel like some terrifying monster that you’re barely keeping under control. I love this stuff. I love the drifting and the driving. I love the cheesy characters and the FMV and the tuning and the cameos. The arguably more important stuff is great. I just get really, really annoyed by lots of little things.
If you didn’t pick it up, then you can now play the game for ten hours free through Origin which should be a enough time to figure out if you like it or not.
The game can be picked up from Origin’s free game trials page.
