X360A Review: Need for Speed: Most Wanted
Written Friday, November 09, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Criterion has one of the finest racing game pedigrees around, from the massive runaway success of the Burnout series, to the developer's work on the Need for Speed franchise with Hot Pursuit in 2010. The UK studio has almost always produced racing games of inimitable quality, which explains why Criterion is back for a second crack at EA's Need for Speed.
After the disappointment that was Black Box's Need for Speed: The Run last year, this year's Need for Speed offering really only has Criterion's past racing efforts to live up to, which means that expectations have been high for its reimagining of Need for Speed: Most Wanted.
Can it measure up to Criterion's past glories though, or is the racing giant all out of ideas and running on empty?
