After teasing us last year, EA has officially released Need for Speed No Limits on the App Store. The game weighs in at 800MB and requires an internet connection to play. We shoud mention that No Limits is a free-to-play title, but don’t let that put you off. Check out the our gameplay video and review below to see if it’s worth downloading.
Let’s start with the controls, you can switch between three types, Touch, Tilt, and Virtual Steering
If you’ve played any Need for Speed title before, you’ll know the general idea of the games, stay away from the cops, use nitrous to beat your opponents and show off your style by drifting. While you might not be able to modify your ride straight away in No Limits, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it makes you want to reach that goal and continue playing. Completing races gets you rewards such as Materials, Parts and sometimes Blueprints, which eventually lead to new cars being unlocked.
Races are pretty short, rarely going over a minute, so they’re not really intense or even challenging. I prefer Need for Speed Most Wanted in some ways. What I do love about No Limits is the car customization, shown at around 1:50, you can modify the mirrors, hood, headlights, wheels, and more. EA says that there are over 10 games modes, 30 licensed vehicles, 38 race courses, 100 player levels and more.
You cant just race as much races as you want to earn REP and Parts, you have to keep an eye on your fuel too, you can fill up your fuel by waiting a few minutes or use gold earned from previous races. If you don’t want to wait or have enough gold to skip the timer, you’ll have to buy gold with real world money, in-app purchases.
Im not normally one for free-to-play games, but seeing the name Need For Speed, I decided to give it a go. This game is by no means perfect, and I think EA knows that, because who likes freemium games right? But it is a game that you can pick up and play on your commute to work and it works for that, I don’t think hardcore gamers will love this but it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re a Need for Speed fan.
You can download Need for Speed: No Limits on the App Store now.
