Need for Speed The Run Cheats

Its possible Need for Speed The Run wont provide as many hours of entertainment as previous NFS games, but then it packs in unique events and some incredibly exciting chase sequences, meaning it packs a lot of entertainment-per-hour. Its not very forgiving of mistakes, but then it provides greater rewards as a result. Whereas MotorStorm: Apocalypse might have overdone it with the setpieces, The Run balances blockbuster style with meat-and-potatoes racing for a well-rounded mix.
