Top 10 Worst Need for Speed Games


The Top Ten

1 Need for Speed Shift 2 (2011)
2 Need for Speed Shift (2009)

NFS Should had never tried to be a simulator. Instead of a realistic Gran Turismo copy cat we got a mess of uncontrollable cars with even worse drift event's. It's weird, but not surprising, that the NFS team's attempts at making a realistic racer only got worse each game.

3 Need for Speed Nitro (2009)
4 Need for Speed Rivals (2013)
5 Need for Speed II (1997)
6 Need for Speed Porsche Unleashed (2000)
7 Need for Speed the Run (2011)
8 Need for Speed Prostreet (2007)

This should be number one. - MrCoolC

The Nevada’s map sand sucked you in like a horny girl

9 Need for Speed High Stakes (1999)
10 Need for Speed Hot Pursuit (2010)

Can't beleve prostreet and shift original is better than this one

The Contenders

11 Need for Speed Most Wanted (2005)
12 Need for Speed Undercover (2008)

Played 10 minutes, then uninstalled. Not only worst NFS, but worst racing game I've ever played.

13 Need for Speed (2015)

This instalment to the need for speed series was supposedly going to "revive" the franchise's charm.

This game is ok, but it just lacks what the older games had.

Revival of the series? I don't think so.

14 Need for Speed Most Wanted (2012)

If it was advertised as a Burnout game it would get a pass, but it has a NFS title with "Most Wanted" in it. Obviously the marketing team knew how bad it was and named it based on their most popular game to gain traction. Very bad idea.

Just The Worst

15 Need for Speed the World (2010)
16 Need for Speed Underground (2004)
17 Need for Speed Underground 2 (2004)

Don't say heresy to sacred! - Aita45

18 The Need for Speed (1994)

I know it's a classic, but it's really not that much of an NFS game anymore. Barely any cars because of the limits of the time. VERY dated.

19 Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2 (2002)

Boring game world, boring soundtrack, terrible career, poor cars list and it's main reasons why this game is bad! - Aita45

Worst in every aspect! Worst career mode ever saw in a racing game, physics are terrible, AI is... well there is no AI, or it would be hard to say that crap as AI. Even Trabi Racer is a better racer game. The best is You can uninstall it quick.

20 Need for Speed Carbon (2006)
21 Need for Speed Hot Pursuit (1998)
22 Need for Speed No Limits (2015)
