A star is born
The Need for Speed series has proved to be THE best racing game series in the history on the industry. With its fantastic graphics, incredibly realistic gameplay and a great selection of cars and tons of other features, its very easy to make this conclusion. This original game is the first and the model for all others to come, respectively. Even though the game came out in 1994, it featured spoken commentaries and in-depth characteristics of each vehicle and even short video clips that show the interior and exterior of the car. Needless to say, one needed a powerful machine to run the game back then! The game features 8 cars on seven tracks, a police circuit mode where you have to be careful how to drive if you don't want to get a ticket, fully detailed race information and game statistics and more. And this is only the first game in the series! The best feature of the game is probably the soundtrack, which consists out of a huge amount of techno songs in high quality mp3, to fully maximize the gaming experience. While a bit outdated to our standards, the graphics were one of the best of the time. Truly, entire the Need For Speed series is one masterpiece and this game is where it all came from. Absolutely perfect!
