"The box for Need for Speed: Most Wanted says Need for Speed: Most Wanted on it. And then, in a font that’s bigger than the words “Need for Speed”, are the words “A Criterion game”. And those are indeed the key words, as anyone who played Criterion’s previous racers will know. Like Criterion’s Burnout Paradise, Need for Speed: Most Wanted is a fast paced arcade racer set in a large open city, where you have the freedom to go wherever you want to and choose events in pretty much any order you like. In fact, the game shares so many similarities with Burnout Paradise that as soon as I saw the first gameplay video, I nicknamed it I Can’t Believe It’s Not Burnout, a name that has stuck with me."
