Need for Speed: World is a good game which was developed by Quicklime Games (former Black Box studios) which was the original studio which made the classical Need for Speed games such as Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Carbon.

So Need for Speed: World is a good game but it's far away from perfect. One main issue in this game are the high rate of Cheaters which is still being dealt with. Also the game doesn't really seem newbie-friendly anymore. New Level 1-10 players will have to race against more skilled Level 60 players which can be hard for a newbie to beat.

Also the balance between in-game Cash items and SpeedBoost (NFSWs Microcurrency option) isn't good either. Most of the good cars/items in-game can only be obtained via SpeedBoost which means you have to spend real money on it. However, there are nice items for In-game Cash as well. But not in a same way as SpeedBoost items.

  • Able to run the game on a Low-End computer
  • Progressional Achievements
  • The Social Features
  • Cheaters
  • The Gap between Cash and SpeedBoost Items
  • Major Bugs and Glitches still hasn't been fixed after 3 years
  • New Gameplay Options
  • An obvious Pay2Win model
  • New Areas
