Product Details:

Most Wanted for Wii U comes complete with full online play, the connected, open world city of Fairhaven and of course the hot cars and intense cop chases that made Most Wanted 2012's driving game of the year. For Wii U, we've pimped it in five key areas to create the definitive Most Wanted.

  • Make Trouble - Buckle up, hit the gas and hold on tight; you're in for the ride of your life. In Most Wanted, you'll experience dream cars, the way you always wanted them. No tracks, no circuits, no simulation. It's about taking your ride to the limit and beyond, nailing perfect 200 mile-an-hour drifts, slamming your friends off the road, outsmarting the cops and getting away with it in style.
  • Connected Open World - In Most Wanted freedom is everything. With the vast open world of at your disposal you'll need to race, chase and explore to earn you Speed Points and become Most Wanted.
  • Leave Your Mark - Leave your mark in the connected open world. The next generation of Autolog displays your friends' record speeds, times, pursuits and jump distances everywhere in Fairhaven City. Hit the biggest air off a billboard jump and we'll even display your face on the billboard - a constant reminder to your friends of your ultimate supremacy.
  • Non-Stop Multiplayer - Our online play is about intense competition, rank and vehicle modification. We're into team games, variety, persistent scoring and endless rewards. Pick a car, meet up with your friends and enjoy a nonstop Playlist of competitive events.
  • Find It, Drive It - Hate grinding through a set progression to drive the cars you love? Us too: that's why in Most Wanted nearly every car is available from the start. Seriously, find any car in the open world of Fairhaven, and it's yours to drive. Just drive up to it, hit the button to switch to it and it's yours.
  • Play Together - In Co-Driver Mode, one player drives using the Wii Remote or Wii U Pro Controller, while another player helps them out on the Wii U Gamepad. Override controls to help a new or younger player. Tap the screen to drift or distract the cops. Switch night to day or activate Boost U to power through the cops with a quick burst of Nitrous and increased crash resistance.
  • Switch Cars and Mods on the fly - Change cars anytime using the Wii U touch screen. Modify your roll-out as you drive with the quick and easy touch-screen interface. Activate custom Nitrous, Reinflating Tyres or Lightweight Chassis modifications to increase your speed, withstand attacks from cops and rivals or improve your off-road performance.
  • Unlock the Open World - The Wii U Gamepad puts the city at your fingertips with a deluxe mini map. As you explore Fairhaven, the map reveals Most Wanted's hidden treasures and lets you shortcut instantly to them. Discover billboards, see your records and locate all the hidden Jackspots.
  • Handheld Play - If your TVs in use, keep playing on the Wii U Gamepad for the ultimate handheld Need for Speed action.
  • The Ultimate Speed Pack - We'll throw the Ultimate Speed Pack in for free, so you can take to the streets five of the sickest, most ludicrously fast cars ever made: McLaren's $4 million F1 LM, Lamborghinis minimalist artwork, the Aventador J, the track-focused Pagani Zonda R, Bugatti's reigning world speed champion, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse and Hennessey's savage 275 mile-an-hour ragtop beast, the Venom GT.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need for speed on the WiiU Ok I thought I was going to like this game more then I do. It has some good parts like the cops chases and all. The car section you get at the start of the game is pretty good. Some nice cars to drive. The other need for speed games were better or at least some of them.this is alright and it is worth I try.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definatly worth the cost, Not worth the music. Defiantly a very good game. I bought this game about a month ago and i'm still finding new ways to play... new cars, new races, all of it.! defiantly worth it! One thing i do really like about the game is that you can't beat the game very easily. One thing that usually gets me to stop buying games is when you can tell the developers made the game short to force you into purchasing the next game in the line. In this game, it takes ALOT of time to work your way through the levels of the game and complete it. 1) you have speed points. In order to reach the last tier of the game, you need to work your way through the first 9. which require about 30,000 speed points each time. So as you would think, it would be difficult to get there. 2) you have to hunt down the cars you want to drive. You start out with only a few good cars, and the rest are more "traffic"ing cars. Your good cars are for racing and running from the police (which often chase after you for speeding and tailgating) your slower cars are for the streets, which have very low speeds, and far more control. So you have to work to find that one perfect car 3) Car customization. You can customize your car to make it go faster, have more control, be better off road, and/or be a better racing car. In order to get custom parts you have to compete in races. Winning a race will give you speed points, which you can use to unlock farther tiers. All in all i say it's a pretty good game My only complaint is the sound track. The music they use is a little "unheard of" at times. so your ears start to link songs to the game. However, this often ruins the song, as you can only think of the game after hearing it again. This often just causes me to turn the music off and switch to just driving sounds.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best racing game on Wii U A very nice game. the online game-play is awesome. the best part is you do not need to have a headset to talk to your friends in online game-play. the wii u gamepad has a built in mic and speaker. beautiful graphics. each car looks so realistic. love the cop chases. the one thing which this game lacks is a police mode. you cannot play as a cop. the wii u gamepad is used very resourcefully. with the gamepad you can change day to night or night to day,you can change your car, and you can check your map. i highly recommend this gamepad to anybody.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from wait till it's cheaper / kids didn't like this game is soo over rated. i'll admit it's a beautiful looking game. and the cars sound right. but everything else about this game sucks. the controls/gameplay (on the wii u version) suck, and the soundtrack sucks...this game tries too hard to be real, and comes across more like a racing simulator that is so real its not even fun...be prepared to crash every ten seconds(even with the traffic off) and the crash cutscenes take way too long....also, my kids (12 and 10 year old) hate this game. it's way too hard for them. i just wasted $65 on this game 6 days ago. i'll be trading it in today. buy it used. that way you can return it if you dont like it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flat out great I bought this game in April and i'm still playing it now. The graphics are great, love to play with the Gamepad because there is motion senced gamplay. Personally, i think that the best part of the game is when the cops are chasing you and when you make 200 yard jumps. One thing that i don't like is that there aren't any people and that you cant ride motorcycles. So over all i think this game is great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Console Version of Need for Speed!! :) The Wii U version of New Speed most Wanted U is the best console version available. The Game is using PC Textures Graphics which makes the game look Great :D The Game makes great use of the Gamepad, you are able change cars on the fly or change day to night. The Online Multiplayer is great and with no Problems. I highly recommend this Game to Racing Fans and Newcomers alike :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Need For Speed game in years! Sure there were previous hits by other EA studios in the past, Criterion hit a home run with this title on all of the current game systems with the Wii U having some visual bonus with cleaner textures from the PC all still running at blistering speed. For the best experience, use a Pro Controller and reward yourself without the urge to use some of the features that make this game easier. It's great for a father-son experience but if you're going it alone, don't cheat yourself out of one of the best racing game experiences in years. Having an open world while trying to prevent getting busted is a awesome challenge. Just hope you have a fast car or prepare for a fight. The extra cars are amazingly fast and you will crash if you're not focused. Buy this game now! You will keep coming back for more!
