Need for Speed Most Wanted

 

Best of the NFS series? Believe it

Cop chases prove addictively fun ; Tweaking your car finally has a context ; Police chatter ratchets up the tension

Single-player progress gets repetitive ; No cop-chase mode in multiplayer ; Difficulty gets brutal

Need For Speed: Most Wanted Review

 

EA's latest installment in the Need for Speed series is proof that the series is heading in the right direction - and with attitude to boot.

Overall, Need for Speed Most Wanted is a game that's easy to pick up and hard to put down, with a substantial amount of realistic action crammed into every high speed pursuit you engage in. If you�re already a fan of the Need for Speed series, then...

Need for Speed Most Wanted

 

For the past few years, the Need For Speed Underground franchise has redefined the urban racing genre, letting players jump deep into the underground racing scene. With a game presentation similar to that of The Fast and The Furious, the Hollywood-like...

It's been missing for a while, but the simple inclusion of the police catapults Most Wanted into one of the best racers in recent history. Dodging roadblocks, evading cruisers and trying to make a name for yourself by getting on The Blacklist is a lot...

EA reinvigorates its fast and furious franchise by inviting The Man to the party.

Streamlines and smoothes out NFSU2's trouble spots; excellent audio; solid framerate; thrill of running from the law; lots and lots of game

Can't play as cops online; no real car damage ... and FMV? You've got to be kidding

Need for Speed: Most Wanted

 

Like a boost of energy for the somewhat stale franchise.

And since I've touched on the best part, I might as well mention the worst. The cut scenes. Good god, these things are bad. They've tried to present something similar in style to what's being done with the movie "A Scanner Darkly. They don't LOOK bad,...

Need For Speed: Most Wanted

 

Like NFSU2, Most Wanted's fictional city can be explored at will, Grand Theft Auto style. To be honest, I thought the open city of Underground 2 was awful and ruined the game, thus I feared the worst with Most Wanted since there's no way they'd go...

Need for Speed Most Wanted review

 

Last year’s Need for Speed Underground 2 was largely criticized by the gaming media for its open-world environment that left gamers driving from one race event to the other. I personally loved the idea of free-roaming a vast city, challenging...

Need for Speed Most Wanted succeeds in many ways, but too often I found myself racing in events that I felt I had already played. In that respect, EA Canada could have put more emphasis on unique races, perhaps striving for a game that provides the...

Need for Speed: Most Wanted -- Black Edition

 

The long-running Need for Speed series races into new territory with this cross-platform, cross-generational release. Most Wanted is built upon many of the fan-favorite features and modes from previous games in the series, including a forgiving yet credib

"Need For Speed: Most Wanted" Running From The Law Has Never Been More Fun.

 

I have played some of the Need For Speed series dating back when it first came out on the PC. The series has come a long way and went a lot of different ways since then. Some of these changes were good and some bad. With the series lately getting out...

Every aspect of the cops, graphics are excellent, enough cars and tuning, and sound

Certain race types may get repetitive, computer racing AI a little flat, lack of

I Fought The Law, And The Law Got Pwned - Need For Speed: Most Wanted

 

Though it actually started as a standard racing simulation on the ill-fated 3DO, for years, Need for Speed was the epitome of pick-up-and-play arcade style racing, letting you get behind the wheel of exotic, high-powered sports cars that few of us will...

The police aspect is simply fantastic, shops are always visible on the map

Still heavy on tuner stuff, online mysteriously has disappeared on PS2
