I think it's all a matter of opinion as to whether or not this is a 'true' need for speed game, whatever the fuck that means.
If you judge it as it's own racing game, it holds up. It's probably not going to set the world on fire, but at the same time if you're a fan of racing, you're likely to get some fun out of it. If you're a jaded need for speed purist, who thinks that the pinnacle of the franchise was hot pursuit, then perhaps look elsewhere.
The problem I have with this game is the fact that they tacked on the name most wanted to it. Then, die hard fans of the original like Nick are almost immediately dissapointed. It's a shame because it's very polished.
#1 Calm down, #2 First comment had some great points, but shooting down others make you look like an asshole #3 @E.GUS good idea. It is Forza trying to ease the pain of all the shitty arcade style racing games.You can play it real easy all the the way to, GD how the hell did the go there that fast and on the line.
......*groan* You are not helping.
I agree with you 100% Nick. The original Need For Speed Most Wanted was by far the greatest racing game I have ever played. It ruined all other racing games for me. This piece of crap is but a pale imitation of the original.
I really hope you are joking because that game is a seriously unoriginal piece of shit not worthy of the Forza name and I don't even play the Forza games.
I hope they don't review it because I'll just be even more mad......
First 30 seconds and all I have to say is....
Nick, you british idiot, Need for Speed started as an arcade-style game. The Underground/Carbon/Most Wanted games were made to get the Fast & Furious money, nothing more. Yes, I had fun playing them and I've enjoyed my time doing so but they were not true Need for Speed games; it was In Name Only. To this day, Need for Speed II and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2010 remains my favorite Need for Speed games.
At this point, I've paused the review (00:43) to say this.
First, get the facts straight; Criterion is known for the Burnout series. Apart from choosing the paint color, THERE IS NO CUSTOMIZING IN A CRITERION GAME, PERIOD. Get that in your head next time you play a Criterion game, Nick.
*unpaused and paused at 04:40*
SEE?! Mr. Beard just compared Need for Speed to Fast & Furious! Thank you, Mr. Beard! You made my point on why Need for Speed should just give you an Excuse Plot to drive around in fast, expensive, exotic and concept cars while being chased by the cops....oh, wait, that's Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2010. THAT'S how a Need for Speed game works.
Which is why I'll be severely disappointed if the Need for Speed movie is a Fast & Furious rip-off.
*unpaused and paused at 12:25*
Again, apart from choosing the paint color, THERE IS NO CUSTOMIZING IN A CRITERION GAME, PERIOD.
You want to customize your car, add decals, make it go faster? Go play Forza.
"...original Need for Speed games..."
............You have never played a '90s Need for Speed game because if you did, apart from choosing the paint color, you would know that THERE IS NO CUSTOMIZING IN THE '90S NEED FOR SPEED GAMES, PERIOD.
Apart from the rating which I'll accept due to my current money issues, this review pretty much confirms that Nick should never be allowed to review another Need for Speed game, PERIOD.
Oh and by the way Nick, Criterion is now in complete control of the future of Need for Speed games.
Unless they do a collaboration with Black Box, it's safe to say that there won't be anymore Underground-style Need for Speed games and I can't express how happy I am about that.
wipeout xl: n64
Burnout: Paradise... period.
@Jack Burton...fully agree on the point about selling it based on name recognition.
The hell... you shit on Hot Pursuit because it didnt feel like Burnout, they actually remake Burnout in Most Wanted and you're still bitching? fuuuuuuuuck yoooouuuuuuu. For the record Hot Pursuit freaking rocked and Most Wanted is equally sweet. The Run was complete crap... well mostly crap but definitely crap.
