Need for Speed: No Limits review

Is Need for Speed No Limits: No Limits the trailblazing racer we've been waiting for?


Just how many currencies do you need in a free-to-play game? We counted at least four here. In addition, No Limits was the ironic subject of news headlines back in January when it was revealed that players would be charged for gas. It turns out it’s just a variation on the typical energy system that costs (slowly refilling) gas to play each stage. However, considering that races typically last around 30 seconds, this can seriously limit your daily playing time. You may well be tempted to resort to IAPs for this, as well as for avoiding the long grind to unlock new cars. It’s a shame because once you do get behind the wheel the racing action is very good indeed, featuring slick graphics and responsive car handling. Control is very simple: tap the left or right side of the screen to steer and swipe up to trigger a nitro boost. In the tradition of Need for Speed, various event types include one where you need to smash through police road blocks. If only No Limits could escape from its freemium limitations.
