REVIEW: Need for Speed Heat puts EA’s racing series back on track

After 2017’s rather disappointing Payback, developer Ghost Games and publisher EA needed to reevaluate what a modern Need for Speed title was.

In order to do that it seems they’ve gone back over the IP’s history to pick out the best bits of its 25 years.

This time around, Need for Speed heads to the Miami-inspired open world Palm City, with players taking on the role of a newcomer to the area’s street-racing scene.
