I liked Burnout! I'm not sure what the reviewer has against it.
I like Burnout. Problem with Need for Speed for me is that it just feels like a tame version of Burnout. Which wasn't what I wanted. Then again I have the PC version, which is a really crappy port - doesn't help how I feel about the game.
He wants to play a Need for Speed game, not Burnout. Which will be more difficult seeing as how the Burnout guys are the ones making the game. If they release another Burnout game, it'll be even more WTF...
I still like the arcady racers over the serious ones for pure fun. This one sure is getting diverse review scores which is interesting.
I'm not keen on having everything unlocked from the beginning. Feels like challenge has been taken away.
Challenge? I wanna Ferrari now! Then I'll do the challenging! :P
It does kinda feel like a watered down burnout paradise. Biggest difference though is the coppers. Paradise had them but it was through dlc and only in one mode. Most wanted is still really fun. I'd give it an 8.5. It still manages to be a need for speed game but with a touch of burnout vibe.
Reading this makes me want to play Paradise again!
It's a definitely a solid NFS game and the best one they have launched in a while IMO.
