Criterion’s newest Need for Speed: Most Wanted brings some of the best elements of the Burnout series into open world Need for Speed gameplay.
Is the original Most Wanted story still there? The original Most Wanted and Carbon were the few that had story where you got framed at the end of Most Wanted and had to escape. In Carbon, you can back to city to figure out who that framed you and taking revenge. The reason it worked was the characters are real actors made the games more alive even the acting were cheesy. One of the actors have gone to bigger TV series like Battlestar Galactica. Clue: He's the main bad guy. So, is the new remake just another NFS without any story that you keep driving for unknown reason.
I don't think a story is important in a racing game. The abortion that was The Run focused on it and ended up being a terrible game. I'd rather have a quality handling model, solid physics, a variety of events to take part in and lots of cars to use. And knowing Criterion, that's what they'll concentrate on here.
