After the announcement of yet another NFS game i was less than excited. When i heard a new racing game was being made by Burnout creators Criterion Games, i was overjoyed. When i heard they were one in the same game, i was confused. After playing this game for 10 hours straight, i am proud to say that this game is a near perfect combination of both series. The style and police chases are pure NFS, and the open world combined with actually crashing is classic Burnout. This is an authentic racing game, without any of the excess junk that held other games in the racing genre down. Get out there and race!
I haven't had a chance to play the console version of this yet, but I have played the PC version. I really don't know why people are bashing this game so badly. Yes, I sympathize with certain people and say that there should have been faces with the names in the Most Wanted list. But, honestly, what other NFS game has there been where every car is unlocked right from the start? Personally, I used to get frustrated waiting to unlock whatever car i happened to be waiting on. Now, all I have to do is find it and it's mine.....can't get much better than that. I do agree that EA needs to do some work on making this franchise better. As much fun as these games are to play, it would be a shame to see NFS fade away. But in the same respect, it isn't such a bad thing to enjoy an arcade racing game such as this. For those that haven't played it and enjoyed the Burnout games, give this one a shot. You won't be disappointed.
