Need for Speed Payback isn't the first Need for Speed taking inspiration from the Fast and Furious action movies, but where 2003's NFS Underground cribbed the movie franchise's neon-lit street racing, Payback imitates the vehicular heists of Fast and Furiouses 5, 6, 7 and 8. The only thing missing is Vin Diesel torpedo headbutting someone with his finely polished melon. See for yourself in this Need for Speed Payback gameplay in which Mike drives and Andy is in the passenger seat.
