Rated 2 out of 10 by NSpeedjunky What are the creators of this game thinking
I don't really write reviews but after purchasing this game brand new for the holidays and feeling so disappointed I was compelled to write a review.This game should have been call Midnight club Los Angeles because all road blocks where taken out of the game so prepare to get lost during a race.The Graphics and jumps are really good but honestly if you played the 1st Need for speed most wanted this game will leave you feeling very cheated and wanting much much more.Who ever thought of allowing you to pull up to any car and begin driving it is an idiot honestly,they took away the feeling of earning the right to drive the car of your dreams.Question to creators what do you have against customization? If your new to the NFS franchise the 1st and Original Need for speed most wanted is a most have.Save your money and wait till the price drop on this one I wish I did because Black Opps 2 got all my attention while 50$ is collecting dust lol.Thank you for reading my review and I hope it helped.
Rated 8 out of 10 by OldManLight Spiritual Successor to Burnout Paradise
Some people seem confused as to what this game was actually supposed to be and saw fit to write reviews based on what they expected instead of what this game actually was. This while this game does bear the NFS brand and the Most Wanted subtitle, it's not a numbered sequel which makes it a reboot of the the old Most Wanted. Now i'll give you that it's weird and completely confusing to do 2 games with the same name in the same console generation, but alas, i'm not the one who names NFS games at EA. What this game is, is the thing that people who loved Burnout Paradise have been asking developer, Criterion, to do since they wrapped up work on their last Burnout game. The only major differences between the 2 games is that the car crumpling seem less horrific due to the licensed cars, there's now upgrades and other game mechanic stuff that's changed and there are cops who chase you when you drive like a jerk, which if you're playing this game correctly, you should be doing that like 99% of the time.
Rated 0 out of 10 by roxis NFS' roots are NOT street rice-ing!!!
these kids don't realize that this franchise was created BY and FOR auto enthusiasts, commissioned by ROAD AND TRACK MAGAZINE... not for fast and furious ricer fan boys!!
These games were started solely for the average person to be able to experience driving a vehicle in a realistic environment of which they would never be able to in real life. Most of you children who talk smack on EA weren't even able to speak when NFS' "roots" were developing! Half of the installments were made to make YOU happy, not the company or the true NFS veterans.
actually... the kids are right.. need for speed should be one giant tuning HUD, no tracks, no times, no realism; just a really long movie created from interactive cut scenes and body kit mods, 20+ hours of running from the cops: alllll packed into one cute little 10 square mile town called RICEPORT... the next title should be "NEED FOR SPEED PRE-TEEN WASTELAND"
I WILL be buying and I'm sure it will be just as fantastic as "EVERY YEAR" 's installment has been.
Rated 6 out of 10 by Stiggy Good for Singleplayer, bad for Multiplayer
I love the singleplayer. It's cool how you can find cars all over the map. I don't really like the new "takedown" idea. Adding Burnout and Need For Speed just makes havoc. The open map on singleplayer is fun because you can go anywhere you want. I really HATE the multiplayer with a passion. The upgrades are overpowered and hard to get, so new players always have trouble keeping up. Starting a race isn't orderly and you can get a head start, which isn't fair at all. Kids on the multiplayer do not do anything but smash and "takedown" other players. The multiplayer has nothing to do with racing because of the takedown. I have been in plenty of different lobbies already, and each one had everybody smashing into eachother. That's it. You cannot even finish a race in some cases because the first player to finish will go back up the track and smash into everyone. I find this ridiculous and unfair. I suggest only buying this game if you want to play the singleplayer. The multiplayer is just not worth it....
Rated 4 out of 10 by USArevenge Fun for a very short time
I was hoping for burnout paradise with cop chases and maybe some forza style customization. unfortunately its nothing like any of that. the open world is OK at best, it feels big at first but it feels smaller as you play a bit. there are cars scattered around that you unlock if you go to them, each car has it's own races ( some are repeats with other cars) that unlock items, sadly each car only has a few unlocks. being chased by the cops is kinda fun but it gets old especially when you are in a nice hiding place and they can still see you because you are in the giant circle they can see. you through walls in. the best part of the game is beating friends' times in races, blasting through speed cameras and jumps and comparing to your buddies on xbox/psn. sadly the multiplayer is nothing special. I cannot recommend this game to anyone, I got it for $25 on black friday and still feel is was just an OK purchase, I wouldn't pay more for it. oh yea, and online pass -.- so even more worthless to buy in short, rent it.
Rated 6 out of 10 by BDParadox Barely A Remake
I've played the NFS series since the first game but truly this series is dead to me now. Since day one people wanted "CUSTOMIZATION" but obviously as gamers and people Criterion insults our intelligence and ignore what truly made people enjoy their the NFS to begin wtih ( for me NFS Underground was the starting point). Even if they used the same exact customization scheme from the original i wouldn't complain. The overall feel of the game is ok but its truly a step backwards from what the original most wanted was. The crashes are too exaggerated ( literally a 3-5 second delay in the race), I wish i could turn them off all together. I only played a bit of the multiplayer but it turns into a random crashbox of stupidity. Im kind of regretting I bought this game I'm considering taking it back to play Forza horizon. Hopefully whoever makes the next NFS will hear the cries of the fans and people of the next generation to add CUSTOMIZATION!!
Rated 1 out of 10 by Thiggythighs its bad
I bought this game and played it for about two hours and I had two force myself to do thaat. I kept telling myself that I should give it a chance, it'll get better, maybe its you and not the game. But I just couldn't take it after two hours of suffering through it. You have to find cars on the side of the road and you don't have to work your way up you can just go find a lamborghini gallardo on the saide of the road when your last car was an aston martin DB9, you have to win upgrades and for every car, and you can't customize your car,you have to drive through a gas station and it randomely picks a color. You can crash in the game like in hot pursuit or rivals, but you don't have car health, it is just to make you angry . It is nothing like the original most wanted which in my opinion was the best need for speed game ever made. It is a terrible game and a waste of money and you would have a better time buying rivals instead.
Rated 1 out of 10 by ant305mn Worst Racing Game EVER!!!
This game really blows! criterion really ruined a game that was near and dear to me. the game has pretty good visuals compared to those of forza and the gameplay is so boring. its like playing grand theft auto after you beat everything in the game. finding cars is worthless and upgrading your cars is worthless. you dont have to work for anything. it gives you no sense of satisfaction when you accomplish anything. there is no story line to tie anything together, all the races are a waste of time. theres is no continuity in any of the races. once you do a race regardless of what positing you come in you cant do it over and a whole new set of races appear. i will not be buying anymore need for spedd games after this. complete disappointment. i just bought the game on the release date preordered it and all and now im returning it on the next day. the only thing that makes this game worth anything is the burnout style objectives which get repetitive really quickly and the chases get old really fast. NOT A GOOD GAME AT ALL!! NOT WORTH ALL THE HYPE!!!
Rated 9 out of 10 by CAPTA1NSOAP141 Need for Speed: Burnout Paradise Most Wanted
As a massive fan of the original most wanted for the playstation 2 I saw this game and thought that it was just going to be another NFS: The Run. Thankfully I was wrong about that. Criterion (makers of the burnout series and NFS Hot Pursuit) made a fun game with one error that stops the game from being a perfect 10 in my mind. The customization on the cars only is internal and has no real physical effect to how the car looks. The graphics are solid and only once or twice did I see any frame rate issues and that was because of a crash that I caused with a few (8 cars) in the air while crashing through a sign. The beginning of the game also was nice by throwing you in the seat of an Aston Martin Vantage instead of forcing you to go up the ranks of cars like in other games (I'm looking at your Forza). Don't let the score stop you from buying the game its fun and addictive and Criterion knows how to make fun racing games.
