Criterion’s Need for Speed: Most Wanted Could Be the Racing Game I’ve Been Waiting For

Default Prime writer Kyree Leary was a huge fan of Need for Speed: Most Wanted back in the days of the PlayStation 2. So when EA and Criterion came out and said they were doing a new Most Wanted, how could Kyree expect to keep his anticipation in check?

Not me. I've been waiting for a remake of the original Most Wanted...only with the same features that made the original game great.

I'm sorry..but no customization, no buy. The recent Hot Pursuit was fun but no customization really affected the replay value of it for me :/

There is no customization??? If not I agree...forget about it.

It appeared that the car selection was lacking.

If i can't mod my cars they should just call it Burnout. Either way a need for speed game should have customization, i'll skip it

Grimhammer002134d ago customization? Confirm?

TopDudeMan2134d ago

Well, look at some of the cars in the trailers. They don't look like custom cars. They all look like stock cars. You might get to change the paint, but that's probably about it.

Either way, I think it'll be a good game, though.

No customization, confirmed. They just keep dodging that question in the interviews, and talk about the performance no customization.

Nodoze2134d ago

confirmed it is a no buy then. Boo Criterion and EA. Come on.

when you race in this game. are there road blocks with the arrows on the corners >>> <<< i enjoyed burnout but hated because of this

Keroyx2134d ago

From what I've seen from the game so far, there doesn't appear to be anything like that.

Sniperwithacause2134d ago

Yeah customization is great. I would also like them to use the PS eye again.

This does not look like a NFS Most Wanted game. It looks more like a Burnout game. Not that Burnout games are bad but it does not look like the Most Wanted I know.

RioKing2134d ago (Edited 2134d ago )

Exactly! And that's something EA and Criterion should really understand alittle better. But Criterion seems intent and delivering more of what they're known for, and not delving deeper :/

Just looks at the comments on the official NFS Facebook, every other comment is about customization and bringing back what people love about the original. Hopefully EA will learn their lesson after the release of this game...

To summarize this perfectly; The other day my friend described the original Most Wanted as a blend between the old Hot Pursuit and NFS Underground games, which is a perfect comparison. This new Most Wanted, however, appears to be a sequel to the rebooted Hot Pursuit...with the addition of the "blacklist" storyline. I'm disappointed already, but I'll still rent it to see what it's about..
