To unlock this achievement, simply start a game of Freeburn, and take down anyone that you see. It is very, very unlikely that the person you take down has not unlocked Criterion Fever, as everyone usually unlocks this one within a minute or two of playing in an online game.

Find someone who already has this achievement, start a Freeburn Oniine session, then invite them. Drive to the other player's location and crash your car into them causing them to be "TAKEN OUT". The achievement unlocks when you get the other player's mugshot (photo from Xbox Live Vision Camera or gamer pic).

Load up Burnout Paradise and press cn_start.
Press cn_A to continue past the screen about the autosave feature.
The game will now check for updates and connect to the Burnout Paradise servers.
Press cn_start.

From the main menu, highlight "Enter Paradise City" and press cn_A to select.
From the VEHICLE SELECT menu, highlight "Paradise Cars" and press cn_A to select.
The HUNTER CAVALRY is the default vehicle. Press cn_A to continue.
You can customize the PAINT FINISH, PAINT TYPE, AND PAINT COLOR if you desire. Press cn_A to continue and enter offline Freeburn.
You should now be able to drive around Paradise City offline without interaction of other players.

Start a Freeburn Online session:
Press cn_right to access online shortcuts
Highlight "Freeburn Online" and press cn_right
Highlight "Create Match" and press cn_right

To make your Freeburn Online session invite-only (recommended):

Your friend's game invite will show up in the Xbox 360 Guide.

You can alternatively invite the other player with cn_guide.

NOTE: This game is backwards compatible on Xbox One. If you are playing on Xbox One and either inviting the other player or joining another player's game via an invite, you must bring up the Xbox 360 Guide by pressing cn_back and cn_start ("View" and "Menu" buttons) at the same. You can also access the in-game menu to send invites as noted in the instructions above.

I have this achievement and would be glad to help out any time. Just send me a message on Xbox LIVE saying:
I'd like the "Criterion Fever" achievement in Burnout Paradise.
