Once the servers for this game inevitably go offline, with no way to obtain loot boxes, earn speed cards or trade tokens, I can't help but wonder if the casual consumer would genuinely ever have the patience to fully complete this game. Need for Speed Payback is another result of EA meddling in the concept of “games as a service” and taking an otherwise mediocre entry in the series and completely butchering it in the process to achieve this goal.

Here's hoping this trend of free-to-play business strategies in full priced games comes to an end sooner, rather than later.

I got the digital deluxe edition and have been playing it since friday and I am having alot of fun with it, and it's alot better than the last NFS game. I'd rate the last NFS game a 6/10, and so far Payback is an 8/10.

Forza has no competition at all right now. Closest game right now to hold a candle would be project cars.

We need a new burnout game though, only bad thing would be the ea logo. We all know what that means.

If they did maybe T10 wouldn't have half arsed FM7. The actual driving is as good as it's ever been but there are so many bad decisions that have been made with the game that it takes away from it. One new track, a handful of new cars, a large number of cars locked with no obvious way of unlocking them, no class based rivals for hotlapping, loot crates that don't need to be there and an assortment of other complaints mean that FM7 wins by default, not because it deserves it.

I share the exact same feelings. I’m at about 40-46 hours into payback and I can tell it’s starting to lose its steam, but that’s fine as I’ve enjoyed every second of it. It’s actually the only game my Xbox X has seen so far lol.

They just need to make it almost exactly like the original Most Wanted. Change the area, cars, etc... But keep that type of gameplay. That is one of my top 3 racing games of all time.

For sure. That was the last great NFS game. Damn it was good even with how limited the cars were.
