    Criterion, make another Burnout or BLACK 2. Let Black Box deal with their problems...

    This is a prime example of not relying on Metacritic for knowing which game is good or not. The game is VERY OVERRATED. I won't go as far as saying E.A. bribed with cash (Very likely though), but comparing this game with... Read Full Review

    More Like NFS UNWANTED

    I can honestly say that NFS Most Wanted 2005 was, in my opinion, the best game in the NFS series. It had so many things which set it apart from any other racing games. Firstly, I loved the customization. Buying a car tha... Read Full Review

    Just an "OK" game.

    This game impressed me when I started playing. But after playing a few races, then I found out that the gameplay is similar to Burnout Series which are very boring(that's why I played Burnout Revenge before and I don't r... Read Full Review
