Need for Speed: Most Wanted demo impressions
I tried out the demo the other day, after slowly navigating the PlayStation Store twice (didn't recognize my selection the first time). Well, it sucks. It's basically Burnout Paradise with a new coat of paint. You'll be disappointed if you were expecting something along the lines of the original Most Wanted.
I'm not a huge fan of the Need for Speed franchise but I know the games used to be about progressing your way through the single-player storyline (albeit cheesy) to drive more exotic and powerful vehicles. I even read the Wikipedia page to make sure but this game doesn't even offer that. 'If you can find it, you can drive it' vs. 'Reclaim your ride from a blacklist of the city's best street racers'.
Then again, I haven't been following this reboot since it was first unveiled. I know the series isn't exactly doing well these days (seems EA peaked with Underground 2) but if the demo is any indication of the final product then it's not worth paying the full price for Most Wanted.
