Back in 2005, Need for Speed Most Wanted represented nothing more than an ugly turn a formerly revered franchise was taking from the elegant Porsche Unleashed through Underground and Carbon to the apex of street racing vulgarity. Little would I suspect that seven years on the franchise would be in an almost continual backslide, with the notable exception of Slightly Mad and Criterion entries.
And while EA is showing no sign of returning the series to its halcyon days, maybe pre-halcyon will do. A new Most Wanted has shown up on an E3 Booth schedule, sparking speculation that this might be the latest in a string of Criterion remakes.
