Gaming Target has posted their review of Need For Speed: Most Wanted 5-1-0, giving it a 8.6 out of 10.
"Against the versions on consoles, Need for Speed: Most Wanted 5-1-0 doesn't quite have all the trimmings, but as a PSP game that's radically different from them, it's a solid game with plenty of depth. The Career mode is lengthy, there's online, and plenty of non-Career options like Tuner Takedown. Sure the police AI can be highly questionable, the visuals are pretty blah as is the sound, but on the track, 5-1-0 is a good time on the go, and is a marked improvement from Rivals. Even if you have the version on PS2, or Xbox, or Xbox 360, or whatever, this PSP version is unique enough to safely double-dip on if you love the NFS franchise; the Blacklist and car lineup is about the only things that are common. Otherwise, this might just as well be a whole new game exclusive to PSP, though indeed it's only been designed this way because the PSP probably wouldn't fare too well with an open city much more visually defined than Grand Theft Auto. Anyway, 5-1-0 is a worthy buy and definitely a great alternative to playing Ridge Racer and Burnout Legends, though again it's not quite in their league."
