This may be one of the worst games I have ever played in my life.
Now I'm not a huge gamer, I don't play a lot but I do enough to know what I'm playing a seemingly unfinished game.
Need for Speed: Payback is just simply not good.
This features a control system that is so fundamentally broken that the races get irritating to play. If you lightly turn the joy stick, the whole damn car just goes berserk and all of the sudden you're in last place and there's no way in hell you'll make it back up.
Need for Speed: Rivals is a game I very much enjoy, but my biggest problem with it is that it doesn't feature a story. It's just race, beat the cops, beat a timer, or be a cop and... stop racers. It got very boring and very repetitive after a while but one thing is for certain- It contains some of the best animation and graphics I have ever seen in my life and it really captures how good it feels to drive fast.
With Payback, it actually does feature a story... a very boring and bland and poorly written story, but it's animation is a major step down from Rivals, and that one came out three years before this one. The animation isn't great but it's voice acting....
The voice acting in this game is some of the worst I've ever heard. The dialogue is terrible as well.
The game mechanics are borderline broke and frustrating, the story is cliche and poorly written, and the graphics are a major step down.
