OPM UK writes: What to call our new game, Criterion must have mused. How to state our identity… Hot Pursuit 2? Pshh, how passé. That game was already released in 2002, four years after Need For Speed III: Hot Pursuit, neither of which had much to do with 2010’s Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit. Obviously then, the UK studio opted for Need For Speed: Most Wanted, which is neither a remake of the 2005 game of exactly the same name, nor carries a sequel number.
