EA had there showcase at e3 and even though Need for Speed might not have been the title everyone wanted to hear about they may have been wrong. Need for Speed: Payback looks as if it could reinvigorate the franchise.
I don't know if there will be a straight street racing experience in the new Need for Speed and quite frankly I don't care. It is great to see car on car battling in this game and nothing else is really needed, yes, it is still cinematic and you could call it a Fast and Furious game. I have to wonder is that really a bad thing? All I know is the Need for Speed needed to wake up its base and get them excited and I think that this game will. The next question is can the game be as fun as it looks? For that we have to wait until the release.
