TB: Need For Speed: Most Wanted Review – Sometimes, You Just Wanna Race

TB: Four years have passed since Criterion Games delivered their first open-world world racer, Burnout Paradise, to a lot of head-scratching praise. They kept their patented high-risk racing mechanics intact, but many were confused and turned off by how poorly streamlined the experience was. Racing fans sometimes just want to jump behind the wheel to race and not bother exploring an open city or being forced to drive across a map to reach a starting line that a simple menu would have made more readily available. (Need for Speed Most Wanted, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 7.5/10

My god, Burnout Paradise is the best in the series. Had hours and hours of fun in that game, I even own it on two platforms. This is a spiritual successor but isn't quite as fun. It's still damn good and I'd personally give it an 8.5.

I'm in the same boat as you. Loved Paradise so much. I'm not a big racer fan, and don't know much about cars, but love Criterions games. And this is no exception, I personally like it more than Paradise, I would change nothing. I do miss the stunt runs though. And I miss the old crash events from Revenge. I really want a new Burnout, honestly.
