Need For Speed World is the free, online version of the hugely popular arcade style racing game franchise.
The game is a massively multi-player open world game, with which you can interact and race with many other players from around the planet.
In Need For Speed World you’ll have your own race profile. That world is an open world where everybod can enter and race. Of course, your goal is to win races and be the best of all of them.
Players can choose a favourite car, modify it, paint it and then pit against other AI and human players within a fairly large world. There are the options of races, challenges or police chases that are commonly seen in the single player games released almost yearly by EA.
Need For Speed World is quite intuitive, but the arcade-style handling also means that it’s not especially accurate or realistic.
You can take turns at full speed or gentle drift, and you can boost your car to push stubborn opponents around. Although there won’t be any visible damage on the car, you’ll need a pit stop from time to time.
Overall, the arcade style is great fun to play, albeit not very realistic. The graphics are quite smooth and the gameplay is very good for an MMOG.
