At about the 53 second mark in this cinematic trailer for Need for Speed: The Run, you can count the protagonist’s pores.

The cinematically-inspired racer sees players rushing from one side of the US clean across to the other on a tight schedule, taking in the scenery and dangers of some of the nation’s most memorable highways, interspersed with cut scenes delivering a story of … well, I think there’s a girl in it. And lots of explosions!

Need for Speed: The Run releases on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in mid November.
