I say it several times in the preview itself but Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit was an amazing game. I loved that game, and still play it. When it was announced that Criterion were making another Need for Speed I was extremely happy. So happy that BeefJack got me to preview it. Unfortunately, "It's Criterion making another Need for Speed" isn't enough so this is my more thought out response.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted Preview
The video's in there as I felt that alone was enough reason to play that. Although the text that made that obvious got cut.
