Need for Speed Most Wanted
2 September 2013
Summary: Need for Speed Most Wanted is quite an anticipated game for many racing fans, heralding a welcome return to Criterion's open-world style, with tons of stylish cars and modes to boot. Naturally, this is an opportunity for EA to pare down the franchise and package for mobile devices in the form of Need for Speed Most Wanted for Android and iOS.
Conclusion: Concept: Combine Criterion’s Burnout Paradise with the traditional cops from the Most Wanted series
Graphics: A lot is going on at any given moment, and things like medians can sometimes be hard to pick out. The damage, crashes, and overall vibe are great
Sound: If you pay attention to the police chatter, you can tell what they’re going to do
Playability: The cars are fast and loose, and the rubber-banding is a necessary evil that helps make races intense
Conclusion: Need For Speed: Most Wanted gives the feeling that it’s more about the bragging rights than the rewards of being a street racer. NFS: MW is for those gamers who love high-speed racing with a shot of adrenaline and a side of exploration. At the end of the day, it’s still very fun and can become quite addictive.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted [Criterion] review (PS3)
14 November 2012
Excerpt: There are a number of terrible puns that could open this review. Is there really more Need for Speed? Is another annually-updated franchise your Most Wanted? It gets tougher and tougher every holiday season to swallow down such cynicism (and to refrain from uninspired wordplay).
Summary: Need for Speed: Most Wanted begs you to play it, to explore Fairhaven, to take your skills online, and to become the best racer in this open-world setting. It's a perfect addition to the franchise and keeps you strictly focused on driving and competing.
Pros: Great open-world city to explore, Intense, fun gameplay, Always focused on driving without the fluff
Cons: Mediocre police pursuits, Limited events for each car, Some confusion for online play
