It might be just me, but I used to play Need for Speed. I loved the feel of Underground, the awesomeness of Most Wanted and the Cop Chases in Carbon. (Okay they were pretty good in Most Wanted as well).
Then came all those weird track titles for no reason that everyone hated because there are plenty of better games like GRID and Gran Turismo. Not sure where they were going with that, but that’s a story for another night. Then came Hot Pursuit. It’s a great game and brings back the Need for Speed feel, but is the same happening with this installment of Most Wanted? (What on earth is it with calling them the same name as previous titles?)
In the below video, try to imagine those times that you played Burnout.
Amazing isn’t it. It’s like the same game. The guy even drives through a billboard. The only addition being the multiplayer feel as if they brought in the awesome part of Test Drive Unlimited.
I reckon it will be a good title, but they need to stop trying to be like other games. We like Need for Speed because it’s Need for Speed. Underground crazy racing with cars we can stick neons on. We have Burnout for billboard bashing, and we have many other racers for our track sessions. (Just realised I forgot Forza, your hardly going to top that.)
What do you think of this upcoming title? Has Need for Speed lost the plot completely? EA are a bit strange though, let’s be honest. DLC on almost launch date BF3 anyone?
