Need For Speed Heat __TOP__
Need for Speed Heat is a racing game set in an open world environment called Palm City, a fictionalised version of Miami, Florida, and its surrounding areas. The in-game map features diverse geography, including mountainous areas, dense forests, and open fields. Unlike Need for Speed Payback, the game does not include a 24-hour day-night cycle, but players can switch between day and night. During the day, players can take part in sanctioned race events, which reward players with cash to spend on new cars and upgrades. During the night, players can take part in illicit street racing, which rewards REP. Racing during the night will attract the attention of a rogue police task force that patrols the streets of Palm City, who are tasked with shutting down street racing in Palm City, which can lead players to risk their earned rep against the police or lose their earnings in handcuffs. Pursuits in Palm City can take place during day or night, but the PCPD's response to a pursuit differs depending on the time period. Players earn rep from participating in pursuits, with great amounts offered during night than day. Each heat level also equates to the amount a player's earned rep for a current night session will be multiplied by, should they successfully reach a safehouse or garage.
Need For Speed Heat
The player is busted when the driver stops and is close to a PCPD unit for a certain amount of time, is completely immobilised during a pursuit, or has depleted their strength bar. Being busted will reward the player with any rep they have earned during the current night session, but will not be multiplied based on their heat level. They will also have to pay a fine using bank. Players busted by the PCPD will not have an impound strike applied to their vehicle or any other form of marks that would result in them losing their vehicle. They will only be fined and have their current night session consequently concluded. The game also features a storyline in which the players interact with the city's police force, led by authority figure Lt. Frank Mercer. Players can smash neon flamingos hidden within the map, which rewards them with a small amount of money or rep depending on the time of day. They can also find graffiti, referred to as "Street Art" in the game, and send it to the livery editor to use it on their cars. Lastly, they can complete activities around the open world such as smashing billboards, beating scores on drift zones, getting the highest speeds passing through speed traps, and going the longest distances when performing long jumps. Players may complete "Crew Time Trials" which allows them to complete short timed events in an attempt to get the #1 spot on the leaderboard in their crew.
There are 13 Safehouses to find in Need for Speed: Heat, many of which can be unlocked by simply driving to them and entering their garages. To uncover every Safehouse in Palm City, you will need to complete a full tour of the fictionalized Miami, Florida.
Palm City is broken up into 18 districts, each of which contain Speed Traps, Long Jumps, Drift Zones, Street Art, Flamingos, and Billboards. To 100 percent Need for Speed: Heat, you will need to conquer each activity in every district, as well as unlock all 13 Safehouses. The districts with Safehouses in Palm City are as follows:
You cannot enter a Safehouse or access the Fast Travel feature when being directly pursued by the law. To access one, you will need to lower your Wanted Level by hiding in any of the discreet locations around Palm City.
For example, if their car is underleveled or they've just unlocked one they want to purchase, focusing on day races will help players get that done sooner, whether it be the standard race or a NFS Drift Trial. However, if players need to grind for levels, then they will want to race the streets at night in order to advance the story. This grind, though, feels forced and unnecessary. Many will see this gameplay loop as an unnecessary timegate to progression, as things are arbitrarily locked until so much REP is earned, which can be equal parts pain and pleasure to manage at night. Need for Speed Heat players will also find themselves dealing with the cops at night, and overall, this is where the game shines.
Cops truly feel like a challenge and an impending threat. It doesn't feel like something tacked on just because it's a racing game, and the simplest cop chase can turn into something exhilarating and intense. This is because a player's heat level multiples the amount of rep gained during one night, but this rep isn't added to the overall total until a night ends. If caught, a player loses that multiplier and a significant amount of bank, meaning it can turn into a real upset for those who have completed multiple races and earned a ton of rep, perhaps forcing NFS Heat players to sell their old cars to recoup.
With over 100 cars and some spare change, there's a lot of customization to be done. Everything from your engine and wheels to small things like the exhaust port can be swapped out to create your dream car. And these are more than just cosmetic. They can affect your car's handling and speed. You can mix up your garage with customized cars and newer cars you bought as you progress through the story. If you happen to fall in love with an early car, it doesn't have to become obsolete. Don't worry about cosmetics, either, because Need for Speed Heat still has visual customization options to choose from.
I feel as if you've played some of Need for Speed's better franchise entries, you'll feel like there's nothing new here. It doesn't bring much to the table in terms of innovation. I get that there's only so much you can do when it comes to arcade racers, and maybe it doesn't necessarily need to reinvent the wheel. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I just would have liked to play a game I haven't already played ten times over. Then again, that can be a selling point for racing fans. The same fun experience with new cars to use and streets to race.
At the heart of the game is the yin-yang of day and night. The two are separate entities, but what's most interesting is the way they intertwine. Win races and other events during the day, and you'll be rewarded with money to spend on new cars, parts, and customisation items. Flip over to the night, and the emphasis turns to earning Rep, which you'll need in order to unlock those new vehicles and other stuff in the first place. Put simply, you need to be playing both sides of the game to make meaningful progress, and it's a system that works well. It's certainly a clever way to keep things from getting stale, and the give and take of needing currency to increase Rep gains and vice versa is addictive.
The flip side is that playing during the day is a little flavourless. There are lots of races, drift events, time trials, and more to play, but Palm City isn't as interesting a place to be in the daytime. You can earn a lot of money quite quickly, and it's nice to have a reprieve from the relentless cops, but the open world is just better at night. The map in either mode is well designed and pretty big, and it can look fantastic in places. However, especially during the day, it's not a location that's going to live long in the memory. There are billboards to smash, speed gates to beat, and other distractions to find, but you do eventually get the feeling that Palm City is pretty empty.
At least driving through it is fun. The starter vehicles will initially feel very slow and heavy to control, but once you upgrade them or buy something better, the handling will grow on you. It's slightly more grounded than something like, say, Burnout Paradise, because drifting will reduce your speed, and you'll occasionally need to lift off the gas and use the brakes. However, drifting is sometimes the better way to get around corners. The result is still very arcadey, and it can be great fun throwing cars around. Perhaps the biggest success of the handling is that it really does vary from car to car, and even better is that you can change how your favourite ride feels to drive by swapping in different parts.
When you are playing Need for Speed: Heat you might need to forward some ports in your router. Forwarding ports is a useful trick in gaming because it can really help to make your network connection most stable and intermittently even faster. Routers were not designed to allow incoming network requests and some games can play tremendously better if an incoming connection is forwarded through the router to the game.
A smart way to forward your ports is to use Network Utilities. Since Network Utilities allows you to both forward and un-forward ports easily you can keep your network security maximized, and then forward ports only when you need them. Alternatively you can do it by hand.
The police return to the open world of Need For Speed series, and it behaves differently, depending on the time of day. During the day they will chase and fine you, but when night falls, they will become much more fierce and persistent, becoming your greatest threat and challenge you will need to overcome. Instead of fining you, they will straight away try to stop you at all cost, even if it means completely destroying your car.
