Need for Speed Most Wanted
A great game for fans of Need for Speed
If you already own this game on the ps2, or Xbox 360, you will find nothing new here. For those who don't here is the breakdown:
The game includes all of the things the ps2 version included, but lacks a online mode that the Xbox 360 had, and has a slight frame-rate problem when you first start playing. The frame-rate issue straightens out after about 3 hours of playing so it is just a speed bump to get over with. The graphics are unchanged from the other versions as well.
- Addicting Game-play
- Fun Police Chases
-Good storyline for a need for speed game
-Great Car customization options
-No Online Mode
-Frame-rate issue in beginning
The Most Wanted Racing Game
I've seen alot of reviews about how bad the graphics are yet people forget this is a ps2 classic not a ps3 upgrade. The 360 version looked much better than the other versions back in 2005, but this version for a ps2 game is great for it's time as well. On my tv the visuals look good for what they are and the framerate holds up pretty good too. That was another complaint by people. Maybe it's your tv's and not the game. Speaking of the game the gameplay is what matters most in a video game and this game nails it. MFS: MW is better than most current racing games that have been released after this one. I can only think of a few racing games that are better than this and they are Burnout Paradise, NFS: Hot Pursuit and GT5 if you're into sim racers. I gave this game a 10 overall but I'd say it's really a 9.5 in my book. So if you're looking for a classic racing game to kill time and that is pretty long then I'd highly recommend downloading this game from here as it's not available on PSN anymore unfortunately.
Had a lot of hope in this but still a let down
The game started out great. I've been waiting for a great need for speed game that would finally bring back customization and thought it first they did. That is until I got the only few costumizations early in the game and realized that was it. All cars have the same costumization options and almost all cars can be found early in the game. That made my lasting appeal go down cause I found great cars early and got all their costumizable options rather quickly since they weren't hard at all. They should have brought back the money in the game since thats what gave it its lasting appeal before. The multiplayer though is fun and has its own way of unlocking cars than in SP. so if you found a viper in the SP you won't have in MP until you unlock it by actually playing multiplayer which is cool. The multiplayer has its own leveling system were the higher the level the more cars you unlock. The biggest downside was the crash animation. It happens way too often and gets annoying super quick and frustration. Why they would try to copy burnout is beyond me and its a stupid move IMO. Let burnout be burnout and the devs need to bring back the need for speed we liked back in the days with customization.
Still the greatest...
Even after all these years, this game is still the best! I honestly consider Most Wanted to be the pinnacle of the Need for Speed Series. Everything since, doesn't even hold a candle to this game. To all those reviewers complaining about graphics, what do you expect, it's a $10 download! If you want the best graphics go buy the 360 version. I rated the graphics high because I thought they were on par with the original version of the game on ps2, no better no worse. It's great to have this game and not have to worry about losing the disc anymore. Great job Sony!
This game is great for everyone; Great buy
This game is awesome. The cars are great, graphics are great, and the soundtrack is fantastic. I recommend this to everyone over 5.
At First I Didn't Want To Buy After I Saw Bad Reviews.But I Bought It.The Graphics Look Better Then Some Ps3 Games.
only an emulation
your better off buying the actual disc as this has terrible graphics worse then that of the original i looked at youtube and even it looked better then my hdmi ps3 im talking terrible to the point where i feel i just got my money robbed from me because i will never play it again instead ill go buy the disc. dont buy this.
Graphics aren't everything
Bro, Graphics aren't everything. Did you remember this is a PS2 game from 2005?. I'm here to make sure people know this game is BEAST and the best need for speed on the PS2. Don't judge a game by it's graphics. Gameplay is awsome and challenging. *the good challenging* Loads of customization, and police chases. This is a must buy!
This game is a blast from the past!
i remember playing this game all night on the game cube just to beat razor, and i'm glad i bought this game for PS3 just to relive the childhood memories. the graphics aren't great but hey, this is a 2005 game. anyways this is an overall excellent game. glad i bought it.
This game has horrible graphics.
The graphics are horrible, don't download it if that is a key element for you. I feel like I wasted my ten dollars.
