Where’s the blacklist? Where’s cross? Where is Most Wanted, and most importantly, where is the remake? I wanted to feel nostalgic when I saw gameplay footage of Need for Speed: Most Wanted. All I feel is betrayal. Criterion and EA have insulted me for the last time. EA knew Most Wanted is one of the best games in the franchise, so they decided to fool us by slapping “remake” on the new and upcoming Need for Speed game. It looks like Burnout and I already have Burnout Paradise to get my fix; I wanted a remake damn it! Why couldn’t they have simply upped the graphics and changed the story line but kept the plot? Anyone who says this is remake of the original obviously never played the original.
I hate to say this but that game isn’t worth a dime; that is a game worth pirating. I won’t be buying this game and I won’t be pirating it, either, but I’m ashamed that EA would just insult us like that. Need for Speed – Burnout: Most Wanted will be great for those who are new to the franchise. The days where the game was focused on tuning and customization are over. Now, it’s about smashing opponents and online stats. Most of the game play NFS‘ youtube page is showing is of the online game play and how now you can ‘jack cars’.
I wouldn’t be so upset if they didn’t slap ‘remake’ on the game as if it were true. If they (Criterion) decide to work on Underground and Underground 2, my racing days are over. Underground 2 is hands down the best racing game of the franchise. I loved that game and I’d prefer to pull out an emulator and play it and not having some brainless, zombified game developers “remake” it and screw it all up.
The graphics look nice, they’re great but I don’t want to have to crash through billboards and/or “security gates”. I got enough of that b.s. in Paradise. There wasn’t one different opinion among them all that maybe they should at least try something different? Burnout Paradise has been out for some time and I’m sure Criterion had fun working on that game but this is pathetic! I don’t care about online gameplay or numbers – stats, etc. I wanted relive the memories of Most Wanted as it should be remembered.
Look at this. What the hell is this crap?
This…is Most Wanted!
Getting chased by the cops, defeating the blacklist, being on the top of Cross’ shit list. Defeating Razor and being the most wanted is what I liked about the game. I liked being able to run from the cops and see how long I could last before they somehow either pinned me in, rammed me with one of their SUV‘s, or got me with the spike strips. I loved the fact that there were parts of the map you could use to take out as many cops as possible. It wasn’t about numbers, it was about having fun and defeating the computer. Where the hell is that in this “remake”?
They honestly should change the name. They should change it to: Burnout: Most Wanted – A Criterion Game.
