Our Review

7 /10

The good

  • Lots of varied gameplay elements
  • Satisfying drifting mechanics
  • Extensive car customisation options

The bad

  • Some low powered cars locked out too long
  • No interior views
  • No wheel support


Need for Speed Heat is a solid arcade racer that steers the long-running series in the right direction. Although it doesn’t reinvent the wheel, the missions, events, and mini-games are varied enough to make for a fun experience overall, finishing the series on this generation in a better place. As a result, we can look forward to the next-generation NFS titles as long as Ghost Games can build upon the foundations set by Heat.
