It's not exactly a feature Need For Speed fans have been crying out for, and it looked shoddy in the game's E3 demonstration. Settling somewhere in-between Heavy Rain and last year's Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, The Run is a cinematic racing game behind-the-wheel, but a Dragon's Lair impersonator on-foot.

To developer EA Black Box's credit, on-foot elements will only take up about 10% of Need For Speed: The Run's campaign. That's good, because the racing sections look awesome.
