It's certainly better than Payback, even if that isn't saying much.
I grew up on the Burnout franchise, and Need for Speed never quite caught my attention the way the former did. But with Burnout not seeing a new main entry since well over ten years ago — no, Burnout Crash doesn't count — I found myself looking elsewhere for my high-speed thrills. That's where Need for Speed and Forza helped fill in the gaps. Ghost Games may have missed the mark with Need for Speed Payback, but it learned some lessons and came back with a stronger Need for Speed entry and addictive arcade racing.
