Another game gamers don't like but critics love

That seems to be the consensus. Give NFS back to Blackbox and let Criterion keep Burnout, don't try to mix them, no one wants them mixed.

Agreed. Though I don't know if BlackBox is the right choice. They did the atrocious NFS Undercover afterall.

well i for one think this game is awesome..most fun ive had in a racing game for a very long time..havnt enjoyed a racing game this much since GRID..yes it is very simular to burnout paradise but dont see how thats a bad thing..instead of just hating for hate sakegive a good reason why the dislike..its fast,thrilling,exciting,and just makes you want one more go..never much liked last few NFS games but this one defo gets a thumbs up.

I personally love this game, but I also have mentally slapped on the title "burnout" ever since i saw that it was the next rendition of Burnout Paradise.


I can get why Need for speed fans are hating this game.  The only mistake this game made is carrying the franchise NFS and not burnout (which i think was definitly more of EA pushing criterions hand than anything else)

My reason is the gameplay mechanics from Criterion. I love the old NFS games; the ones with Ferraris until Hot Pursuit 2. After I played this for four hours on my compy, I couldn't deal with this compared to Forza Horizon. Sheesh, Matt and Craig shouldn't get acquired by EA in the very beginning.
