Snowed in by new Need for Speed: The Run trailer

It might be the dead of summer, but the latest Need for Speed: The Run trailer ought to help you chill out a little bit as it gives a peek into what Jack will face as he passes through Colorado. 

The thing that makes me a little annoyed by this trailer is how the most exciting parts of it seem to be all cut scene content. The bit where he's driving through the narrow pass and has to dodge the boulder might not play out all that well with full control, but if they're going to have us do quick-time events to handle Jack's action out of the car, why not just go whole hog and let us have that level of interactivity in all similar sequences?
