Was Need for Speed: Most Wanted's universal praise undeserved?

VVV: "Last week, our review of Need for Speed: Most Wanted was published on this very website, which prompted VVV's resident chief Alan Boiston to take it out for a spin to see what all the fuss was about.

It seems he wasn't quite as enamoured with the game as I was, however, finding fault with the lack of cockpit camera, an unplayably low bumper view and a lackluster environment amongst a whole host of other issues." (Need for Speed Most Wanted, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Xbox 360)

Game is fantastic. The game only sucks if you're looking for structure. Some people need to be told what to do, and don't know how to enjoy something if they aren't given bullet points.

If you're looking for a huge open world, it's easy to spend hours getting caught up in cop chases and destroying people in online matches.

The Miiverse stuff added to the Wii U version is pretty awesome as well.

I disagree but i didnt hit the button though. Lol!
It's just burnout with licenses cars they totally ignored what made the original most wanted great and memorable. Thats why people like my self complain, as a Need for Speed installment it's fine but you raise expectations very high when you add the subtitle "Most Wanted"

I bought it of the PS Store beat it and still play it from time to time however this could've been a great game rather than just a good one if they stuck to the formula of the original Need for Speed: Most Wanted.

I think what it lacked wa not structure but a sense of accomplishment, you just drove around taking up races, but you already had all the cars. it's fun while you play it, but doesn't really give you a reason to go back.

It's ok, I would have liked it to be more like the original MW

^THIS. ^THIS. ^AND THIS!

The game was nothing special, and lacked the elements the original had that kept me coming back for more.

The disagree police are going to crucify me, but I thought it was overrated. The game itself was good. What turned me off was the map. I didn't think it was very good. It looked good, but the layout of the map and the overall environment was just not awesome (with the exception of the airport graveyard). I preferred the set up of the map of Burnout Paradise... everything felt connected, yet still diverse. I also got Most Wanted the same day as Forza Horizon, which I really enjoyed more than Most Wanted, so that didn't help it in my eyes either. Most Wanted is by no means a bad game, it just isn't as great as some have made it out to be. I want Criteron to make a next gen Burnout... that would be awesome.

Yup. Its Burnout with out the fun. I hate "open world" racers. That's just plain dumb. I like my racers with 1 road and lots of things to blow up, cars to crash and excitement build in. If I wanted to drive around I can do it here in NYC.

There has no story that makes this game same as burnout...not same as the original MOst wanted

The game was fun at first but it got old very fast. It's just Burnout with licensed cars. I mean I knew it would have some similarities to Burnout, but it's NOT a NFS game at all.

I don't need some grand story or anything, but at least give me a reason to race. The game has no structure at all and is very repetitive. NFS The Run was almost universally hated though I actually prefer The Run to the new Most Wanted.

While the story in The Run was pretty lame, the races were great and I loved the structure of the game with all the different locations and different types of races. The Run was a much better game overall.

I really just want the series to go back to the original Most Wanted.

Yes its undeserved, WHERE ARE THE CHEESY CUTSCENES?!

I think it was good for what it was, it was simply a burnout paradise sequel. It was an excellent game, but not necessarily what people wanted.
