Need For Speed Most Wanted preview: a racer that's lost the plot | CVG

CVG: "Following the QTE and narrative focused bloat of last year's Need For Speed: The Run, sitting down to a session with Criterion's Most Wanted felt pretty liberating." (Need for Speed Most Wanted, PS3, Xbox 360)

It's funny how Criterion thinks, that original Most Wanted fans, no longer "want" a story for the game. When, it's the story that actually made the original Most Wanted what it was. The blacklist racers, Cross, and Mia, kept players entertained, from start to finish. The way Criterion talk about Most Wanted, you would think they created it. The truth is, this "NFS: Most Wanted", is not Most Wanted, it should've been named something else. It's Criterion's beloved burnout, with the NFS name on it, and it in no way, is reflective of EA Black Box's, street racing masterpiece. The only thing this poorly made imitation has over the real Most Wanted, is graphics, and that doesn't mean anything, to a real gamer.The gameplay for this, is nowhere near the original's. Criterion would've been better off calling this what it really is, which is burnout, as it's what fans of that series are asking for, or have been looking forward to.

I agree the story is what made the real most wanted, that and the level of cops.

R.I.P NFS series now that Cryterion has taken it over. Now every NFS game will be like Burnout. No story, no characters.

Just smash & crash, then dash, in a flash for some cash until you get a rash.

Cant wait for this. Burnout Paradise is the greatest arcade racer of all time.
