Criterion Games bring you another instalment of the franchise which combines elements of their previous games Burnout: Paradise and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit.

But that’s not the whole story. I loved Paradise as much as Burnout:Revenge and I played NFS:Hot Pursuit and enjoyed it, but not enough to review it. I am a huge fan of Criterion who seem to be able to make racing games that appear to go faster than any others while still keeping lots of detail and handling lots of action.

Most Wanted features the ‘free roaming’ element of Paradise and the cop chase elements that made Hot Pursuit so much fun. The racing routes are very similar to those featured in previous games and the game mechanics have not changed much.

You still have some options to customise the cars that you can ‘jack’ from around the map – features are unlocked as you do well in races. The garages still dot the map and you can whiz through them to get your car fixed while racing; another feature is that the car colour will change which seems to help (a little) sometimes when you are trying to evade the police at low level of alertness. The levels of alertness mirror what was in Hot Pursuit and are similar to those in the GTA series. You can perform takedowns on rival racers and cops, but only the heaviest of cars (such as the Range Rover) can knock into traffic without disastrously frustrating results.

There are some very cool and fast cars dotted around the map which can be used straight away (just find them, drive up to them and press ‘Y’) – for instance I got hold of a Lamborghini after only a couple of hours of driving around and after a few challenges were complete I had it installed with racing tyres, nitro and a new chassis.

Basically, Burnout Paradise re-skinned, innit.

Ok, not much of a review, rethink. I have to confess to not playing the original Most Wanted, but I was a BIG fan of Burnout up until Paradise. So, open-world racing. I LOVED Burnout Revenge, but when Paradise came out, it irritated the hell out of me. See, for me, racing games are about learning the courses, figuring out the best lines to take, shaving seconds of your time, and learning the best places to take out rivals or overtake. The whole open-world racing idea kills this factor and instead lets you do whatever the hell you want. Which is great, if you want to crash a lot, drive around aimlessly and socialise.

Unfortunately for me, I have 3 small children who have driven all my friends away, so I only really get to play single player, and a large part of Most Wanted (as with Burnout Paradise) is very geared towards community play. Don't get me wrong, the single player is great, but I also dislike that its constantly waving it's multiplayer integration in your face. I have no friends, I don't want to know, I just want to race from A to B and have a consistant race experience.

So those are the downsides. Upsides are that as with all Criterion games, handling is fantastic, the breadth of cars is phenomenal, the graphics are stunning and there are a lot of little touches that really add to the experience. It actually is a lot of fun when it all comes together it approaches the greatness of the earlier Burnout canon.

Personally though, I can't get past the open world problem. It's all too aimless for me.... Techically excellent though.

Although driving games have never been my preferred genre of gaming, I must admit to having a weak spot for the Need for Speed franchise, and this game in particular. I was a huge fan of the original Most Wanted and played it more hours than I care to admit. It is truly incredible therefore that I can come away from this game seeing not only a true reimaging but an improved game. Criterion have really turned this game into a masterpiece and the graphical design and level of detail is some of the best I have seen, despite the huge number of graphic heavy games released this year. The variety of cars and locations is brilliant and because they are all open to you right from the start you are very quickly able to chose a play style that suits you. This meant that I could choose the cars that suited the way I like to race and customise them to completely unrealistic but awesome proportions i.e. My little Corvette Zr1 was able to outrun the likes of Bugatti and Koenigsegg once I had it fully kited out.

The music track is also very good and the whole feel of the game is vibrant, full of energy and very exciting. There are some small issues, like a small drop in frame rate at some points, slight spawn issues in some of the races and some slightly irritating crash mechanics i.e. crashing against invisible objects, but there are easily overlooked when you play for any length of time.

When everything comes together in this game, as it often does, it is truly a mind-blowing experience and makes you feel like a true bad-ass. Some slight polish issues were enough to dock a star but I could easily recommend this game to anyone who has an interest in the racing genre or appreciates a quality video game. Criterion, take a bow!
