Need for Speed 4


 Background infos

You always dreamed of driving a car you can never afford in your life ? Than Need for Speed 4 : High Stakes is the right game for you. After you entered the game you can choose which mode you want to play. Beside the normal VS mode and the Single race, you can also jump into a police car and hunt for people driving to fast or you can do it the other way around. Each mode is lots of fun and cam motivate to play a track again and again.

At the beginning, you can choose between 7 cards and 8 tracks but you'll get access to more and more tracks/cars the more successfull you are. Need for Speed 4 is the first game from the need for speed serie which has a real damage model, which means you need to look after your car and can't drive like you want to any more. This opens completly new ways of gameplay : Instead of stopping the car by getting in front of it, you can also damage it completly and it'll stop automaticly :)

Game motivation



 Graphic rating

In this game it'll make a real difference how high your gamma correction is set. Better take it down a bit if you want to get better results. If you're getting missing textures, make sure to turn down the resultion since this game uses PLENTY of textures at once. When everything is set up, the graphic is looking REALLY good. The details are cool and you can even read the text in D3D mode. Worth a look !


           


Graphics



 Sound rating

The sound isn't that good in NFS4 on bleem!. On the PSX, you have cool background music while playing and the car really sounds like a car :) ! But on bleem!, there seems to be a small problem with the combination of background music and sound effects, so I suggest you turn off the background music completly. That way you'll get less sound errors.

Sound rating



 Final word

The graphics if this game really kick ass. The game runs fast on bleem! and has cool graphics. Only problem remaining is the sound, but I guess you can live without that. The game really motivates to play it again and again until you earned everything single car and every single track. Worth a look for all car fans and speed freaks.
