Weekly Time Waster - ‘Need for Speed: No Limits’

There are many racing games out there on mobile, but one of the biggest household names in the racing scene will always be “Need for Speed.” I was unaware all this time that the game series was on mobile devices, so of course when I found out, I had to dive in and see it for myself.

“Need for Speed: No Limits” is a free-to-play racing game that puts you in the shoes of a street racer looking to win races, build street cred, and earn money to buy faster cars and bigger upgrades. The game has fantastic graphics for a mobile game, which comes at the cost of sometimes running a bit slow or having long load times, so it might not play well on an older phone.

The game has a pretty decent story, but it is dragged down by mediocre characters. The main bread and butter are the races themselves. In “NFS: No Limits” you don’t need to worry about pressing an accelerator pedal. In this game, your car is always going full pedal to the floor, the only thing you need to do is tap the left or right side of your screen to turn. Swipe up to boost and swipe down to drift around tight corners.

It sounds easy, but there is plenty of room for error, and as you progress through the story, the races get much tougher, as do the opponents. There are a few types of races throughout; each race lasts less than a minute on average. There are also over 70 cars in the game, ranging from street and classic cars like a 2013 Impreza WRX STI or 1960 Dodge Charger RT, to a Hyper car such as a Ferrari LaFerrari.

“NFS: No Limits” is a free-to-play racer made by a huge publishing company, so there are a few caveats to understand before you go in. You can only play so much a day, as you use “fuel” in each race, so when you run out of fuel, you must wait to play again later. It also takes time to rank up and earn currency, so there are of course premium “paid” currencies to help you progress faster if you want. Other than that, “NFS: No Limits” is a fantastic racer that will be sure to burn some time – not to mention some rubber.

“Need for Speed: No Limits” is free to download on the Android and IOS stores!
