Need for Speed: Most Wanted
Love This Game!
I think this is the best racing game ever released! The free roam is fantastic, and there are an abundance of cars to choose from! The graphics are great, and the sound of the cars is sooo realistic! The controls are laid out very well, and are comfortable. I would recommend this to anyone who likes free roam racing games, and likes out running the cops.
Hoping for the best
The good is Criterion is back onboard with this one. I was not disappointed with NFS HP or Burnout Paradise. So at least this game has that. I am thinking this will be like Burnout Paradise with licensed cars. Speaking of cars I am seeing the same ol rehash of cars from previous games. I can understand maybe a few but lets get some different cars in there that haven't been in there in awhile...say like the 2000 yr Toyota Celica :).
AWESOME & MASSIVE JUMPS, RACES, COP CHASES!
This game is AWESOME ! Massive Jumps, drifting, cop chases at high levels which shows a Armor Truck as a cop. Game is lots of fun, challenges you in every race to be the best. Great cars to choose from, Free Roam thru-out the map. Multiplayer is fun and can be a bit crazy at times LOL. Graphics are very good. Music is ok just wish you could make up your own music selection for the game. Cant design cars with vinyls. Overall, its a fun game for those who LIke to be CHASED by cops and take them OUT ! Multiplyr gives you chances to take out your firend's car (wreck it). I RECOMMEND YOU BUY THIS ASAP! Have fun! ~ Happy Gaming!
The Best of ALL
I've never playing the first Most Wanted. All of the sudden, this game would make it BRILLIANT! Can't wait to play it. =D
NFSMW 12' READDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!
I have NOT bought a Need for Speed game since the 1st Most Wanted which was released in 05'...Im sure YOU KNOW why...as the series of Need For Speed games since 05' have been nothing short of uncustomizable cars, bad physics, redundant storylines, and most of all boring, limited, and un replayable gameplay. I never was a fan of the Burnout series..BUT i did like crashing my car A LOT back in the day of the Burnout series haha. 1st things first Im running this on my 47 inch LW6900 LG 3D Smart TV..This NEW NFS Most wanted is nothing short of graphically beautiful. And I dont understand why people are putting this game down, the audio ALONE makes me smile each time I push R2 (the acceleration) down. The damage shown on your car is top notch, bumper hangs, if your trunk gets smashed it flops up and down, i'm telling you its crazy just like the early most wanted (but more damage) which is never bad. Anyways, the DOWNSIDE is yeah sooo all us early fans of customization and tuning WOULD normally be let down as, mysef,( I only bought this game because of the $39.99 sale). AND I'm glad I bought this game! Lets face it, Need for Speed began customization (decals, painting, rims, body kits and etc. because of the Fast and Furious Movie Series & Well times have changed). Regardless of our previous experiences with NFS's past amazing customization and tuning, the performance tuning in this NFS game is rather limited but I DONT CARE its simple, makes sense, and you can notice the difference when you drive. You can tweak your performance parts easily. The cars are GORGEOUS, the map is HUGE, the jumps are EPIC, the races bring me back to the beginning of when the Need For Speed franchise started. People EVERYWHERE say yeah this is a BURNOUT PARADISE copy, with better graphics and licensed cars (Porsche, Lamborghini, Chevy, Bugatti, and more) BUT it's NOT. It feels like the NFS I knew and LOVED, the physics I LOVE, and it takes me back to the old physics of Juiced and the 1st Most Wanted. Hands down, times have changed, we may not get the customization and tuning we once knew, BUT i took a leap of faith and spend $39.99, and THIS IS the BEST Need For Speed I have bought yet.
SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?! BUY IT. Because there's hundreds of hours of playtime in here, and just like the old need for speeds, even when you're done with everything, this game is so beautiful you drive for hours just enjoying the scenery, jumps, cars, cop chases, and speed. AND BTW if you get Busted by the cops everyone COMPLAINS how nothing happens, you dont get a ticket, impound strikes, or etc. Well hey it just goes to show you, its all about FUN like the 1st Need For Speeds if Any of u guys played those....Its Limitless Fun! ENJOY... OHHH And THE DRIFTING IS SOOO FUN...there's just so much I keep forgetting haha BUY IT =P
Best racing game since "Burnout Paradise".
"Burnout Paradise" and "Need for Speed: Most Wanted" have two things in common: they're both great racing games, and were both produced by EA Sports and Criterion Games, and needless to say, those two studios never disappoint in the racing genre of gaming. In this game, you can roam freely around a beautifully designed city, just like "Burnout Paradise", winning races to improve your rank among the city's Most Wanted racers, and jacking new cars to do so. Unlike "Burnout Paradise", however, you get chased by the cops. Some things I do to evade the cops is by switching to another car, or changing my current car to another color when I enter cooldowns, which occur when you begin to evade the cop's detection. In races, I like how the checkpoints you have to through are marked ahead of you so you don't go off course, which happened to me a lot in "Burnout Paradise". So, this is without a doubt, the best racing game of the year, the best racing game since "Burnout Pardise", and a great all-around game.
It does look good. From all the gameplay trailers and such I've watched I'm liking what I'm seeing. I prefer the free roam option and I'm pumped for it and all the running from the cops. Nothing but pure adrenaline it seems from the trailers. Multiplayer will be solid, being able to conveniently compete against friends is a big deal and it's looking in good shape with up to 12 players online. However I question what more it can do that gives NFS a big step in the right direction, it seems like a good title but will it be great? One of the things I'm looking for in order to consider it to be great is the customization. I haven't seen anything about it and I am worried that there is once again a lack of customization and this turns into just another NFS game rather than a memorable experience. If what I've seen was taken and combined with an Underground type customization (or better), this will be a great game. As for now it is a mystery, and I'll be sure to keep an eye out.
I was expecting customization, but sadly, there is none. Thanks, Criterion Games... See, the new Most Wanted is great, really. But it should have came out with another name, not Most Wanted. Why? Because, the original Most Wanted had great customization. That's what Most Wanted was all about. I believe that Criterion Games just used Most Wanted as a name so that it would sell better. Why do I say that? Well, it's not hard to guess... For everyone who has played Burnout Paradise - The new Most Wanted is exactly like it, just with real life cars. And maybe a few other differences. Crashing through billboards + gates and getting points for it, the online is set up similar, etc... Not saying the game is bad, just saying that it shouldn't be named Most Wanted... It's disappointing that it doesn't have customization like the original. Other than all that, the game is great! I haven't been addicted to a game like this in nearly a year... It's very fun. Especially to free drive! It's a pretty big open environment, but not that big. It's enough to enjoy, though. Plus, there's a lot of awesome jumps. I also think that EA/Criterion Games needs to make some DLC for the game... maybe more races/missions, and especially more cars...There's plenty of cars to enjoy driving in the game, but there's also plenty of room for more. If you have some extra cash, and have a Need for Speed, go out to your nearest GameStop for a purchase!
Looks good but.....
Again with the no visual car modifications?? C'MON EA!!!!! Looks great but I don't understand why they keep taking out the visual car mods when thats something tons of people want.. Just imagine Hot Pursuit with visuals, body kits, rims, choice of paint jobs, ect.. would have been 1000 times better. ill have to check it out on gamefly first i guess.
If you factor out the outliers, claiming that this street racing game should be rated below a 5, you'll ended up with a favorable statistic = 8.8
This game should bee seen independently from the original therefor played and judged for what is. NFS defined, over 40 cars, drive-train upgrades & mods = fast speed, cop chases and franchise cut-scenes.
