Need for Speed: Most Wanted: A Criterion Game (Review) - The Gamer Access

"If video game franchises could have an identity crisis, Need for Speed would be a good place to look. It started in 2009 with NFS: Shift, a circuit racing game. Then, Criterion Games attempted to bring the franchise back to its roots with NFS: Hot Pursuit a year later. Circuit-racer Shift 2 came out next year, but movie-action-racer EA Black Box was not quite done yet with the franchise, and released NFS: The Run several months later. So the franchise has three identities to sort out. Actually, make that four because it even got its own free-to-play MMO. The confusion won’t let up anytime soon, as Need for Speed: Most Wanted, an open-city police chase racer from Criterion Games, just got released. Is it any good to the franchise?"
