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...

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 Spieletest on

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...

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...
