Need for Speed Most Wanted Review - Team VVV

VVV: "In many ways, Most Wanted feels like Burnout Paradise Mk2 with a Need for Speed badge stamped on it. Despite Criterion’s best efforts to reinvigorate the genre, it still feels a tad too familiar compared to Forza Horizon's refreshing cocktail of authentic driving thrills on the open road, and its open-ended structure and lack of narrative hook may leave some players cold, particularly if you predominately play offline.

Once you get over its startling lack of structure and overfamiliarity however, Most Wanted is a non-stop high speed adrenaline rush that represents Criterion at their absolute pinnacle, blending the best of both brands into one hyper hybrid of a package that further reinforces them as one of the best British racing game developers. " (Need for Speed Most Wanted, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360) 8/10
