The strength of this game is in the Autolog's ability to whisk you through everything seamlessly, and the Easy Menu's fair accessibility. Cars are fun to listen to, the environment is decently interesting to drive through, albeit the controls are a bit too loose, which is especially felt during cop chases.
That's where the game falls a tad flat. Cop chases are exciting, but the lack of options to lose them makes them a tad more frustrating than they should be. While Black Box's Most Wanted had pursuit breakers and tight enough controls to make precision moves, Criterion's Most Wanted only has ramps, and reliance on precision driving when that's not entirely possible due to the controls.
Overall, it's an exciting game to play, but a few tweaks to cop chases and controls would only make the experience much better.
First off... within 15 minutes I was giggling like a little kid again I remember playing NFS on the original xbox and just running from the cops all day long. Over the past few years i've strayed away from most racing games simply because they just weren't very appealing to me. This game however seems SPOT on the drifting is incredibly perfect it's easy to drive around chaoticly and get a super fast repair if you need it. The best part is just the freedom I've been playing for about an hour now and i've only completed one race, I just can't get enough out of running from the cops It's loltastic :D 10/10
