Criterion Games in my opinion do the best arcade car games.
If you love Burnout Paradise game which was one of the first car games put on the PS3 & a game that is still very active online so if you can find Burnout Paradise cheep I would recommend getting it even thou the graphics are not as well as other PS3 Car games now it has the just an amazing game play.

Then there is there Second PS3 Car game Need For Speed:Hot Pursuit this is a great game as you get chased by the Police on some of the races also the other good thing about this one is that you can be the Police in the game which I liked it reminded me of the Classic Arcade Game Chase HQ but you do it online against people taking turns in being the Racer & The Police in one of the online Games.
But it has not got the same come back appeal as Burnout has!

Right let's get to this one now this one has been set up like Burnout Paradise but with real cars! (Burnout is made up of made up cars that are look alike of other cars) So if you like to play Burnout this game is for you the only difference is you don't need to go a Junk Yard to change your car as the cars are hidden in the game all around and as soon as you find them you can drive it then if you change your mind and want to go back to your previous car you can ether drive to where you found it or just go back to driving it. The other difference is there are Police patrolling around the city & if you are speeding (which you will be) or bump in to one (Or the Police car bumps in to you!) then they chase you and it sounds like the chase games in Hot Pursuit, But there is something very funny about these Police in the game if you are not speeding but on the wrong side of the road you can just pass them which on the Motorway or Dual Carriageway is odd.

4.0 out of 5 stars Need for Speed meets Burnout Paradise 17 Dec. 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Before I start reviewing Need for Speed: Most Wanted, I feel I need to explain my views on some of Criterion's recent games. Burnout Paradise was the first ever Burnout game I ever played, and as a big fan of open-world driving games that encourage exploration, it very quickly became one of my favourite games of this generation. With a large, varied map, hundreds of collectibles, a large variety of different races and events and dozens of vehicles, it was a long time before I even touched the online aspect of the game, but when I did, I found a treasure trove of hours more gameplay. Combined with frequent, game-changing updates, the game kept me entertained for months.

So when it was announced a couple of years ago that Criterion would be making the next Need for Speed game (Hot Pursuit), I was looking forward to getting my hands on the game. But while the game provided me with some entertainment for several hours, I found that the game quickly got old. While the world could be explored in free-roam, there was very little reason to do so. The map was large, with some interesting areas, but no reason to go out of your way to explore. And as for the different events, they didn't keep me entertained for long.

So I was sceptical when Criterion announced that they would be making another Need for Speed game, especially as I was still awaiting a follow up to Burnout Paradise. What I didn't realise was that the two worlds - Burnout and Need for Speed - would come crashing together into a single, beautiful game.

From the moment you pop the disk into your console and boot the game up, any fan of Burnout Paradise will feel right at home.

2.0 out of 5 stars Half Hearted 31 Dec. 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I love the Need for Speed franchise for it's simplicity and the ability to just pick up and go. This game still has that, doesn't require you to worry about minute details like gear ratios and is all-round just fun to play. Upgrades on the cars are even simpler/less of them so you spend less time with a slow car and more time just racing for the fun of it.

The problem is that that's where it stops. The game has little in-line with a master-plan (10 easy Most Wanted races) and just simplifies and rehashes old concepts. There's probably about 10 different races/tracks in total, with each car you get 5 of these, then the races are recycled for each car. Once you get good at the game you spend about 30 minutes driving each car.

It feels like a half finished game and is quite buggy. Numerous times I "crashed" because the road didn't appear. To top it off, if you want to "unlock" further races/much sought-after cars (i.e. McLaren F1), you have to buy the "Ultimate Speed Pack".

All in all, the game would justify an arcade-game price 5-10, but doesn't qualify for the price I paid for it when it was new.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This review is fairly late in terms of the fact that most people who would want this game will have bought it by now, but I feel it's worth commenting on some of the strange aspects of this game that make it good, but somewhat aggravating. Having played this game, I come to the conclusion that good or 'addictive' games generally fall into two categories: 1) simply great, and a pleasure to play so you play through to the end, 2) aggravating and irritating so you keep playing almost to spite the game.

So, having lead with that lets move on to the game. I am a casual gamer who plays infrequently, just for reference!

The good things are this is a great game to just sit down with and play, it's quick and easy to just jump in a car and start some races. A new style of NFS, in that you don't have to work your way up from the 'cheap' cars to the super cars, you can just use anything.

The races are engaging, the physics generally enjoyable and the control system works well. It's easy enough to get drifting and balance you speed and cornering. Furthermore the graphics and sound effects are good, with a good atmosphere almost all the time, and I enjoy the sound twisting from using nitrous and other things. Engine notes are also decently varied.

The list of things I don't like is much longer, but I must stress that the good parts outlined above although small in volume are very important, and just (just!) outweigh these issues:

- The "crashed" system, and related cutscene. When you have a "bad" crash, the car stops for a moment and you watch a scene of your car wrecked, and usually all the other racers shoot by at that point, putting you at the back of the race.
