Criterion’s decision to remake the original PS2 Need for Speed: Most Wanted is a gamble that’s paid off exceptionally well. Arcade racing hasn’t been this much fun since Burnout 3 released in 2004.
The heart of Most Wanted is Fairhaven, an open world whose locations are entirely available to you from the get-go. Environments span inner-city metropolises, demolition sites, parklands, sewers, woodlands and mountains. 9/10
