This need for speed is not like the previous most wanted. No visual car customization, no buying cars, and especially, no story line whatsoever. And no hood view for the cars. I dont know if this is just me or any one else but i hate bumper and 3rd person view and thats all there is. I loved the hood view from the previous most wanted. Is it that hard to put it into a game?

The venerable "Need For Speed" series has long been ill-defined: games such as the Road & Track sponsored original, Porsche Unleashed, and Shift have focused on driving simulation, whereas others, such as Hot Pursuit, High Stakes, and Most Wanted have eschewed realistic control for fast-paced cop-evading action. Enter "Need For Speed: Most Wanted - A Criterion Game." It's a reboot of a game that's hardly old enough to warrant a reboot - "Need For Speed Most Wanted" was released in 2005 to the acclaim of fans and critics alike. So how does Criterion's effort hold up?

For the sake of completeness, I'll briefly review the first Most Wanted here. It was an amalgamation of all things learned from both the Hot Pursuit series as well as the Underground series. Featuring a wildly varying roster of cars, from Mazdas all the way to Lamborghinis, as well as an incredibly deep pursuit mechanic (where the number of cops chasing you could rise above fifty - believe me, I've seen it), Most Wanted was the deepest NFS to date. Long lists of customization options could have you buiding, painting and repainting your car for hours, and a plethora of race modes gave ample opportunity to work your way up the Blacklist, a ranking of top competitors in this open-world racer. Set in the massive and bustling setting of Rockport city, the story was told through a series of hilariously badly-acted full-motion video sequences, which could easily be described as a wonderfully snide parody of the "Fast and the Furious" series. Altogether, Most Wanted was a very complete, very impressive, and very fun arcade action racer.

Then Criterion comes along to show us how it's done.

The premise behind NFS: Most Wanted is this: In Fairhaven City, there are 10 drivers who are the "Most Wanted". Take them down, you get their car. The goal: Become the most wanted driver in Fairhaven City.

Ok, so the story's lame, but you didn't have one at all in Burnout Paradise either. That's not really important to racing fans, as one look at NFS: The Run's reviews will tell you. What DOES matter are the cars, how do they control, modes available, upgrading possibilities, and multiplayer. Again, this is a review in process, so I can address all of these outside of multiplayer at this time.

- It's really hard to pin down the driving controls in this game at this early stage. We're not talking Gran Turismo level of difficulty, but it's also not as easy as the original Burnout Paradise, or even Blur. Think the controls in Ridge Racer Unbounded, but MUCH less touchy, and you're getting in the right ballpark. My best guess: If you're familiar and have played the NFS series, you'll be at home here.
- As for the cars, no more going through ranks 1-20 to unlock. Every car in the game is available at the start. Now the danger of this, of course, is that you'll find one you fall in love with and really have no need/desire to find all the rest (Why would you bother with the Delta Lancia when you can drive/upgrade a Porsche, for example)? All you have to do is look for the cars with an badge above them, choose the car and it's yours to drive. It's definitely a step in the right direction away from what a "typical" racing game would force you to do (aKa Gran Turismo, forcing you to grind for money to buy them).
- As far as single player is concerned, I am a little worried that the modes are a little on the bare side.

I've always loved the Need for Speed series. But honestly, it's lost it's way during a couple of installments. That is until Criterion stepped in with their entry 'Hot Pursuit'. Now their at the helm again for 'Most Wanted' and it's even better! Beautiful, tough, crazy-ass racing action! They hit it out of the park with the open world gameplay and EVERY car being available from the start. Only having to simply find the cars in the massive world. Such a simple, but clever idea. Thanks EA and Criterion. I very much look forward to your next effort.

p.s.- Please PLEASE support offline multiplayer. The fact that I can't race the person sitting next to me on the couch really irks me. Online isn't the only area for competition y'know. Just sayin....

Most people are used to the DLC companies have been pushing down your throat the last 3-4 years. Important content has been ripped out just so you can pay for it again. Annoying menus in the start screen asking you for more money for games you already paid for. This game is taking that to the next level. DLC now directly interrupts your regular game play and it is completely in your face. You start the game, and there is a two page ad for all the DLC you can buy. You find a car on the street (which you need to do in game to progress) and you waste your time driving to it and when you try to switch to it, you get the rude surprise that it is a DLC. What is even worse is that this DLC insanity was introduced after the game was released in regular patches. They changed the behavior of the game after you bought it. Do not buy this game. Actually do not buy any Electronic Arts games. As for the game itself, car physics is non-existent, the different car models are basically just skins and bear no real resemblance to their real car counterpart. My suggestion, just avoid Electronic Arts until this insanity ends.
