How is the Platinum for this game?

12 posts in this topic

Hey everyone. I’ve been enjoying the 2015 NFS game quite a bit, and I was thinking of playing Payback since I have it from plus.

How’s the platinum? Looks quite a bit more grindy than the 2015 game.

It's honestly not to bad. I really enjoyed playing it for the most part. The hardest part by far is getting 3 stars on everything on the map but other than that it's not to difficult. There is quite a few collectibles but they're not to bad. Took me around 40-50 hours to get it done.

Grindy and the casino aspect of the game ruined it. Its also not the greatest racing game. NFS Heat was better.

My first Need For Speed since NFSU2 on PC 16 years ago, I quit after one hour. It's so boring, it's just "drive to this location", "go back to talk with X", not for me. But if you enjoyed a previous NFS, maybe this one will be enjoyable too.

The beginning of the game is actually not bad but it becomes so repetitive and boring shortly afterwards, the rubberbanding here is just ridiculous and frustrating, not mentioning the pure shitty level up system for cars.

Trophy wise is not difficult, there is some grinding stuff like getting 3 stars on a lot of events of the game, some collectibles and miscellaneous stuff, but because of the things I mentioned before I need to find the strength to jump back on it and finally getting this plat, perhaps by playing the dlc in between will make it a bit funnier (even if I'm not so optimistic about that...)

Good luck if you decide to go for this game lol

If you like driving and NFS franchise go for it. The trophy is not that difficult, especially once you get the hang of it. I for one liked it, but also agree Heat is better.

Very straightforward plat, got boring when cleaning up jumps, speeds traps etc though....

 

I enjoyed the game and need to buy the Speedcross DLC

Trophy wise not too bad, car and driving physics are soooo bad. One of the worst, if not the worst racing game I ever played. If the physics were better and the car upgrades weren't as bad, it would be a good game. Good Luck!

Pretty much how I feel, lol. I still haven't finished all the jumps etc sitting at 93% or so it just gets so boring. The racing was okay however I hated the "I need a separate car for each race"

you'll be spending plenty of time on collectibles and trying for parts to get the height on some of them.

it's still a great game regardless.

 Platinum NFS payback couple weeks ago,game is as mentioned by others here.Not one of the best NFS games but interesting if your into racing games.A few each  of the speedruns,drift runs to achieve the three star rating were aggravating to get because of all the traffic spawning & wrecking on corners [delivery trucks/garbage trucks/bank trucks/all lanes blocked with vehicles] way too much traffic at any time no matter what road.

 Got lucky on some night runs & online free roam sometimes had less traffic.

 Two online ranked trophies are easy don't have to win just complete races.

 Not NFS but Grand Turismo 7 where are you ???

Pretty how I’d put this game. A lot of racing games have great racing controls and physics like DIRT 5, F1, Gravel and so on, no complaints. This game I’m struggling to find the strength to finish as the controls, upgrading the cars (if you can call it that), needing specific cars for specific events. Sigh. 😞 has some cool cars in it though I don’t see often in racing games. I got to play Heat for a bit from the EA promotion, I’d much prefer that one.
