Very Good

Why so serious??

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.

Good

Great racing, cop chases could be better

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.
