I want this game. I’ve got NFS Hot Pursuit and I still enjoy it a lot, don’t get to play it as often as I’d like but it’s one of the game that I’ve kept and not traded in. I don’t keep a lot of games once I’ve played them, only a very few. the new NFS The Run features a great cast like Christina Hendricks, Never Back Down’s Sean Faris, 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Model Irina Shayk.
