With the lack of a first-party racing title arriving at launch for the PlayStation 4, EA jumped on the chance to have the only game in town, and released Need for Speed: Rivals a few days early for Sony's next-gen console. Criterion has stepped to the side for Ghost Games, which delivers an adrenaline-fueled racer that makes the series as competitive as it's ever been, and truly delivers on the Rivals namesake.

The U.K.-based studio has seen some staff realignment, and now Criterion remains a workforce of barely more than a dozen developers.
The Need for Speed franchise has been going strong for years, and EA is showing off the latest game in the long running series called Need For Speed Rivals. I had a chance to spend a good 10 minutes with it after waiting in line for 30 minutes. Was it worth the wait?
