Reviewer Nicholas Simonovski writes, "If I’m honest, downloadable content for racing games is rarely ever exciting. Most of the time, you’ll only ever receive a small bundle of cars, perhaps even a track or two, but nothing that really keeps your interest.
"Recently, Electronic Arts and Criterion Games released not one, not two, but three new DLC packs for their latest title, Need For Speed: Most Wanted. I remember watching the trailer for the “Deluxe DLC Bundle” when it was first uploaded a few weeks ago. A few seconds into the video, we saw the camera following Eddie’s Nissan Skyline R34 GTR from Need For Speed: Underground; from that moment on, I was excited for what was to follow. With fifteen new vehicles to tear up Fairhaven with, a whole new expansion to the city, new race modes and more speed cameras, billboards and gates to speed and crash though, the DLC surely does deliver."
