Need For Speed: World, or its official name World Online, was released in Summer 2010, but it never had any advertisement, so no one actually knew about it until NFS: Hot Pursuit came out. but It seems that NFSW was actually the demo version of...

An entertaining arcade racer with outstanding car chases, undone by its micro-transactions and lack of...

by Mike Splechta, August 11, 2010 If six years ago you would have told me that Need for Speed was downloadable for free, and was playable with thousands of people online, I would have jumped up and down with glee. Nowadays, free-to-play games are...

In an nutshell, Need for Speed World is an online racer masquerading as an MMO, where there is really very little player interaction at all. The open world is a glorified queuing system, and there is far too much grinding between upgrades, and far too...

Since getting a first look at EA Black Box's free MMO racer Need for Speed World back in May, the experience has been fleshed out and polished, with lots more to come as the years go on. If you're new to the game, it's a free to play title...

I intend to keep playing the game even after I'm done with this review, which says something about the novelty of this competent MMO racer. I just don't know for how much longer it'll hold my interest -- that'll depend almost entirely on...

MMO is a term that gets bandied around a lot lately (and one that’s a little annoying, because a “Massively Multiplayer Online” is not a thing you can play). Games that once upon a time would’ve been plainly referred to as online...

There's a lot to be said for those few MMOs that allow cross-pollination of in-game and real-world currencies. As far as we’re concerned this is a very real part of what creates, builds and cements communities around a game, and it’s...

EA's online racing world is lacking on the social side, with little interaction encouraged between players. There's a lack of variation in the available racing events, although escaping from the cops in pursuit mode is certainly fun for a while....

International Review By Spieletest on 74

Need for Speed World ist zwar gratis, jedoch muss man zumindestens 20 Euro investieren, damit man sich einen fetten Wagen leisten kann und einen Hauch an Chance haben möchte. Ansonsten ist es eine wahrlich mühselige Angelegenheit. Need for...

International Review By OnlineWelten on 61

Die Mängel von Need for Speed World wurden im Artikel schon an zahlreichen Stellen angeführt. Es gibt zu wenig Spiel-Modi und damit verbunden kaum Abwechslung. Verfolgungen sind nett, letzten Endes aber immer das gleiche. Sprints und Rundkurse...

International Review By GamePlayer on 60

Det är 16 år sedan biltokiga spelare för första gången fick chansen att fantisera om snabba race och heta polisjakter. The Need for speed släpptes först på 3DO men kom året senare till PC som även...

Need For Speed World Teleurstellend, zo kunnen we Need For Speed World wel omschrijven. Het feit dat ik moeite heb positieve punten op te noemen over een racegame zegt veel. Grafisch en geluidtechnisch is het gedateerd, qua gamemodi is het weinig...

International Review By FZ.se on 40

Långköraren Need for Speed har brett ut sig över hela spektrumet i fråga om kvalitet: från halvdan streetracing i Carbon till mer seriös banåkning i det bejublade Shift. Med World testar serien en ny genre - massiv...

International Review By Eurogamer on 60

Hvis du er glad for fart og MMOer, men ikke lige synes at hestevæddeløb i World of Warcraft er sagen, kan det være, at EA/Black Boxs nyeste tilføjelse til EAs linje af 'freemium'-spil kan hjælpe dig! Need For Speed World...

International Review By Gamereactor on 60

Need for Speed: World er EAs nyeste bud på hvordan serien og i højere grad dens online-del skal fungere, mikrotransaktioner her, mikrotransaktioner der. Men er spillet noget værd, eller er det bare en fiks forretningsmodel? Nikolaj...

International Review By GamingXP on 77

Schnelle Rennen, viele Autos und zahlreiche Tuning-Möglichkeiten werden hier zu einem netten Rennspiel zusammengesetzt. Das Spiel richtet sich vor allem in Punkto Fahrverhalten eindeutig an Gelegenheitsspieler, die sich nicht erst in ein Spiel...
