Need for Speed Heat
Not going to lie. I didn't like this game as much as I liked Payback. It's fine if it's an unpopular opinion. but I just thought they tried harder with the story in Payback compared to this game. This game's "story" was very short and just unnecessary. However, the gameplay and customization options are this game's saving grace. I absolutely love how much you can customize your cars. You can make any car a drift car, race car, or off-road car. Hell, I made my pink convertible jaguar my off road car. Ridiculous? Sure, but awesome! The map is huge and diverse as well. However, I liked Payback's map better. All and all, is this a great Need for Speed? No, not in my opinion. Is it a decent time killer with enjoyable aspects? Yes, so it's an okay racing game if you're a racing game fan.
