Need for Speed Most Wanted U


Need for Speed: Most Wanted U is an exemplary port, showing the way it ought to be done amidst a slew of lazy conversions onto the new tech. Criterion have gone the distance with their latest iteration on last year’s best racing game and have fashioned...

Most Wanted U holds the status of the best entry and furthers the accessibility of the formula in meaningful ways. In a time where Wii U ports are looking increasingly cheap and unnecessary, Criterion gets it right and much like they’ve always done for...

Need for Speed: Most Wanted U Review


It's not quite the smooth, finely tuned speed machine it could have been, but Need for Speed: Most Wanted U is still an exciting racer.

Terrific handling makes driving a pleasure ; Police chases are usually intense and enjoyable ; Billboards make for satisfying asynchronous competition ; Online multiplayer races are fast and exciting ; Beautiful and varied city

In slower cars, police chases can be a frustrating ordeal ; Repetitive police chatter ; Lacks any sense of narrative motivation ; Inconsistent, sometimes dull online challenges

Additionally, some parts of the city don't have many areas that are off the beaten path; you might enter cooldown but find yourself with nowhere to hide from patrolling police who soon spot you and reinitiate the pursuit. The balance between making it...

Need for Speed: Most Wanted U – The Open Game Of Open Roads


Criterion's latest opens by simply telling players where the gas and brake pedals are before promptly cutting them loose to rip up the streets of Fairhaven.

Need For Speed: Most Wanted


Call up the moving company: Fairhaven beckons.

Beautiful city packed with things to do ; Easy Drive makes everything, well, easy ; Leaderboards are available for every accomplishment, promotes friendly rivalries ; Off-TV Play ; Online multiplayer is terrific for beginners and experts

A few events can be very difficult to pass ; Controls take some getting used to initially

No. I enjoyed Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon more. Slightly, but it did edge it out.

Great game, but not perfect


With DL content included, this game is fun and challenging. There are some difficult tracks as well as easier ones. There is no local multiplay, but the "co-op" mode does allow u to have a young helper while playing. They can do things like change time...

great cars & graphics, decent music

No local multilayer, online multilayer; can't just race

Pre-owned game is like new!


My son really wanted this game and they did not have it in the store. The knowledgeable salesperson offered to look it up online. They had a pre-owned version for only $15. It was sent right to the house. It was a clean disk in a case wrapped in...

Arrived quickly and wrapped like a new game

Large, beautiful environment, for better and worse


Criterion knows how to make a solid racer, and this one is for the hardcore, street racing fan. It's not for the casual player who will likely get lost in the massive environment and have difficulty navigating the menus. For the hardcore, the speed of...

Beautiful graphics and nice selection of cars

Confusing to stay on route during races, as the environment has many possible roads and shortcuts

Keep kids away


My 10 year old bought this and after watching him play I decided to ban this in our house. The kids are getting kicks out of trashing others' personal property, wrecking good cars and then having fun by having cops chase them.... Running away from...

Great for the "older" young ones!


I originally thought this would be a bit too strong and fast paced for the younger grand kids, but surprise ... they give the teens a great run for the money! Wish this was around when I was 13.
