Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remaster is a Cop Out for the Best NFS Game


Recommended Posts

 


It's long been a meme in the racing and speedrunning community that Need for Speed will never be the same. Some even argue that 2010's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, despite being generally praised by those who played it, as the turning point for the franchise as a whole. After Hot Pursuit came the Most Wanted spiritual reboot, which ended up being nothing like the original game in nearly every way. For those who've played it, 2005's Need for Speed: Most Wanted is widely considered the best game in the whole series.

And yet, it feels like EA has made every attempt to ignore Most Wanted at every turn. The most recent Need for Speed Heat supposedly used Most Wanted as an inspiration, and while it never quite reached the highs of the original Most Wanted, the inspiration was clearly there. As the best-selling Need for Speed game from the whole franchise, it's been practically ignored by the franchise's latest efforts. Now with Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit being remastered, there's no reason why Most Wanted shouldn't receive the same treatment.

They should've stopped with the silliness after Carbon. All the new NFS are total crap. We want new NFS underground in the spirit of the old ones, that is the direction EA should've taken.
