Bad

Not Good

I played the game for all of 5 minutes before I realized that this game was unimaginative and boring.

Just the fact that you drive around and randomly find cars to jump in.... it set a bad taste in my mouth.

Maybe it's just me, but I would prefer that you have to work your way up and earn the right to drive various cars.

CRASH! Most Wanted Fall Short for Casual Gamers

If you like CRASH a driving game CRASH that has lots of CRASH dramatic action CRASH, great graphics, and CRASH beautiful cars CRASH, then this one CRASH is for you. On the other hand, CRASH if you don't like being frustrated CRASH by unreliable handling, barriers CRASH around every corner CRASH, and constant distractions, then you should leave this one CRASH out of your queue. Challenging games are one thing; games that are simply too difficult for casual players are another. Most Wanted fits the latter category. There is no setting to reduce the difficulty, so the player must simply manage as best he/she can. Frustration mounts, literally, at every turn. Not every gamer plays at the same level; Criterion's implicit assumption that we do is shortsighted and wrong. Without the ability to reduce the difficulty, I'm left with two options: suffering through the game (gee, that's fun) or simply giving it up. After all, gaming is not my profession, it's my recreation. I expect to be challenged, but frustrated to the point of exasperation? No. This game is not about driving skill or racing prowess - it's about dramatic crashes, one after another, after another, after another. This one goes back in the envelope.
