The Need for Speed (1994) Overview

The Need for Speed is a 1994 racing video game first released on the 3DO and then ported to MS-DOS, Windows, PlayStation and Sega Saturn. It is the first installment released in the Need for Speed series. The premise of the game involves racing in sport cars, including several exotic models and Japanese imports.

The game featured both closed circuits and three point-to-point tracks, each divided into three stages. The Saturn and PlayStation versions include an additional three tracks. Traffic vehicles appear in races. Police pursuits are also a key gameplay mechanic, in which the player could be ticketed or arrested after a police car succeeded in catching up with the player. Players are arrested if he/she received a third police ticket, while the Sega Saturn version only required two tickets for the player to be arrested. Completing the tournaments (or entering a cheat) unlocks the “rally” mode, where car dynamics are changed to make for a faster ‘arcade’ experience, as well as the “Warrior PTO E/2”, a fictional jet-powered sports car.

Except for the aforementioned Warrior, each car in the game came with detailed specifications, history, audio commentaries and real-life videos, which would also be featured in subsequent games in the series, though this was omitted in later games. A replay feature allowed the player to view a saved race. Multiple camera views, playback speed and video navigation were offered.

Multiplayer consisted of a two-player head-to-head racing mode, which required computers connected via modem.

There are a total of six courses in the game (three in the 3DO version): City, Coastal, Alpine, Rusty Springs, Autumn Valley and Vertigo. Each is a distinctive environment. City, Coastal and Alpine have three sections each, while the others are circuit races.

There is an extra track in the game, named Lost Vegas, which can be unlocked by winning all of the tracks above in tournament mode. A flag in the bottom right corner of the track’s image indicates a victory in the menu to help the player keep track of the progress.
