Need for Speed
Need for Speed is an online open-world racing game and the twenty-second installment in the Need for Speed series. Taking place in the fictional city of Ventura Bay which is based on Los Angeles, players participate in five types of gameplay, which include Speed, Style, Build, Crew, and Outlaw. As players progress, they earn reputation points as well as money which can be used to purchase new vehicles and modifications.
A group of small-time racers compete in street races, hoping one day to get noticed and meet their racer icons.
Need for Speed received mixed reviews with an average score of 67%, praised for its visuals, environment, and customization, though criticized for its AI rubber-banding and issues with the game being always online.
Despite being an online-only game, Need for Speed plays like a single player, which means no boosting necessary nor winning against online opponents. The game is fairly average in terms of both skills and time required. The majority of the trophies are story related, with only a few miscellaneous, one of which will require some grinding.
Expect roughly around 30 hours for the Platinum, depending on your racing skills.
Start by simply playing through the main storyline, which is made up of five mini-stories related to the in-game characters. Each mini-story has about 15 races to complete, with modes depending on the characters. Speed races are with Spike, Style is with Manu, Crew is with Robyn, Outlaw is with the Outlaw, and Build is with Amy.
A good percentage of the trophies are story related, which means once you've completed the five mini-stories, you will automatically unlock most of the trophies.
After that, it's a matter of mopping up the miscellaneous trophies. This will probbly include some grinding for reaching Reputation Level 50 for the Can I Get Your Autograph? trophy. You'll also need to complete 15 daily challenges for the Serious Fun trophy. There are three challenges offered each day, with random objectives. So technically this means that if you're able to complete all three each day, the Serious Fun trophy will require five days to unlock.
