Need for Speed Strategy Guide Review


Interested in picking up EA’s Need for Speed reboot but aren’t exactly the best racer around? Prima Games have made it their mission to turn you into street kings and queens with the release of their official strategy guide.

The guide does a very job of covering everything the player needs to know about the game. Every feature and racing event –from drift train to time trial, is included and described in accurate detail. For those who are completely unfamiliar with racing 101, reading this guide will allow you to be able to tell your friends the difference between chicanes (A kind of turn) and double apexes, while also being able to perform them during races.

Drifting has become very popular over the years and the latest NFS game features many events that requires it. If you don’t have a proper understanding on how to drift and find yourself spinning out of control, or even wrecking your ride like I did (Don’t laugh!), then the guide’s coverage of it will help improve your drifting skills and performing it’ll become almost second nature as you race along the streets of Ventura Bay.

Need for Speed launched with 51 cars and every single one them can be customized extensively. Not only will you find each car listed in the guide but every and performance upgrade as well. Every cooling system, air filter and so forth are presented with clear pictures, information on their functions, how much they cost and how to unlock them. You can also tune the handling style of your cars in favor drift or grip and this guide will teach you how to find the right balance between the two so your vehicle can be more efficient on the road.

Unfortunately while the guide does mention visual customization for your rides, it doesn’t feature a list of the different parts you can unlock and when you can unlock them. So if you want to know what kind of spoilers or hoods are available for you Camaro, you’ll have to find out in-game.

Obviously the most important aspect of any racing game are the actual races and NFS features plenty of them — many of which can be very challenging the further you progress. Whether you are having difficulty winning races from the get-go, or you find yourself raging at the events towards the end of each story, the guide offers extremely helpful tips for each and every race, complete with quality screenshots and outlines for each route. You’ll know when exactly you should slow down, whether to drift or power slide at a particular turn.

For the fans of in-game collectibles, the NFS guide gives the reader accurate locations for every vista, donut spots (Not those kind of donuts) and free car parts in the game. Achievement/trophy hunter will be disappointed in the guide’s very basic coverage of the game’s trophies and cheevos, as it basically just lists what they are.

Final Verdict:

The Need for Speed guide is a great choice for those who are new to the series and those who are. Spend some quality time with the guide and you’ll be able to hold your own with the best of them, drifting and power sliding like a racing savant.
