Need for Speed: Most Wanted [Criterion] review (PS3)

HonestGamers
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).

  • Conclusion: The latest Need for Speed release has its share of slip-ups, but it’s mostly able to sideline them and deliver a fast, fun open world racing game very much like Criterion’s classic Burnout Paradise.

  • Summary: Slightly above average or simply inoffensive. Fans of the genre should enjoy this game, but a fair few will be left unfulfilled. How we score: The Destructoid Reviews Guide

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
1 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Okay so I have a soft-spot for Abba. I'll admit it. So when I heard that Sony has a SingStar Abba title in the works, I didn't exactly scoff. I do think that Abba is an unusual first choice for the SingStar, as far as band-specific compilations go, but I'd be a liar if I said I didn't like the band.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012)

Techtree
15 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Over the years, we have seen the Need for Speed franchise evolve from a simple arcade racer to one with cops, drifts, street races, horrible out of car experience (seriously EA, what were you thinking?), and even human elements such as betrayal.
  • Pros: Gameplay very similar to Burnout Paradise. Immediate access to the best cars on the roster, no frills racing.
  • Cons: Can get a little too arcade for somebody's liking.

  • Summary: Need For Speed: Most Wanted doesn't quite live up to its potential, because despite being heaps of fun for a while, it's short, lacks challenge, and the multiplayer game is a disappointment.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted

  • Conclusion: You begin initially with relatively slow cars, and work through a progression system before you're behind the wheels of a car that you'd drool over on Top Gear. That convention's broken in Need for Speed: Most Wanted. The vast majority of the cars are available from the beginning.
