Now Playing - Need for Speed: Most Wanted (Criterion)
GameSpot is showing off their driving skills with a little Need for Speed: Most Wanted - A Criterion Game!
Wow EA truly has dropped the ball here this time, they staked their best racing game name on the line and failed. seems like you cant even customize the paint on the car wow. This game is nothing more than burnout paradise with licensed cars and cops nothing more, literally!! I thought of buying this game but after watching this I might as well just play burnout paradise and call it a day. I thought EA was just experimenting with the last nfs titles but allowing criterion to call this game "most wanted" is just shooting themselves and their fans in the face. Given the physics of this game this should be called criterion's "hot pursuit 2" but even if so they still missed out on you being able to play as the cops against friends or AI. They need to stop worrying about graphics and style and just make a solid racing game that embodies all the best(nfshighstakes, porshe unleashedhotpursuit2, underground2, mostwanted2005 and nfscarbon) and guts the worst of nfs games. Also having a story in the game is what makes the game itself have some life in it other than playing with friends. Lets all be honest folks we dont get buy games to simply socialize with friends, thats just and added benefit not the core of buying a game. Games like Halo have been a wonderful example of balancing single and multiplayer modes while building new but good features with old but great features.
Love Nfs but ive played thru both burnout paradise and the 2005 most wanted. This doesnt look like anything new. I like the finding cars idea. but racing event after event and finding secret jumps n billborads...str8 outta burnout without anything new. the bridge with 2 ramps at either end in 9:18-9:30 is Str8 outta burnout billboards in the same place n everything. Bring back Underground with all the DEEP custom looks u can make then u woulda had gold n thats such a small thing...
This message is for gamespot. i don't understand the single player a.k.a offline.
im used to story in need for speed. but this is not apparently, so how do i evolve or progress through single player mode offline? everything is about multiplayer but so little is about single. not everyone has internet so please let me know before i buy this game. thank you
@charlievo Read the title: Now Playing - Need for Speed: Most Wanted (Criterion)
@charlievo LOL him/her....The player that holds the gamepad is it a guy or a woman by they way ?? Looks transexual...
@Simplythebest12 I see no real improvement since the original Most Wanted. No need to purchase this, gonna wait for GRID 2.
