Speed Demonstrated: Need For Speed Most Wanted Trailer

It's illegal street racing time again, as Criterion revs up for the release of Need For Speed: Most Wanted. It's about cop chases and carnage, making ridiculous jumps, and exploring the new city of Fairhaven. Ah, my Fairhaven. I hope to explore thee to to a medley of classic musical numbers, including "I've Grown Accustomed To This Race", the pulse-pounding "On The Street Where Your Checkpoint Is" and of course, "Get Me To The Finish Line On Time."

Want to take a look? We have four minutes and four seconds of video, right here, with the unfortunate name Need For Speed Most Wanted Insider - which sounds like a very unsatisfying date for all concerned. "May contain content inappropriate for children" indeed...

Going to say it: I think the cops might be over-reacting a little bit. Sure, that's definitely dangerous driving of the "very" kind, but it's not as if there are any people around, or the buildings are going to be affected by a little thing like a maniac driving into them.

Really, at worst you're just making work for mechanics in most of this footage, and that seems a noble thing to do in a recession if you can afford it. Until your personal trickle-down effects involve blood on a windscreen, I say they should leave you to it, frankly. Hmmph.
