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.

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.

For Wii U owners, it's been a long six months - but Criterion's free-roaming high-octane racer is..

Lastly, Criterion have packed in a few extras for Nintendo fans with the game including the original DLC pack for the PS3/360 versions titled the Ultimate Speed Pack on disc. It adds an additional five drop-dead gorgeous cars from McLaren, Lamborghini,...

Need For Speed: Most Wanted Wii U review – definitive version

 

It might be five months late but the new Wii U version of last year's Need For Speed finally shows what Nintendo's console is capable of.

Nicely designed open world environment, well-judged arcade handling, and a great upgrade system for the cars. Solid online options, and good use of the GamePad

Very similar to Burnout Paradise, except with less character. No police chases in multiplayer and only six players instead of eight

The best multiformat Wii U game so far, even if the improvements are mostly minor and the underlying game still lacks personality.

Need For Speed: Most Wanted Review

 

Need for Speed Most Wanted blew me away in all of the previews I'd seen and played with this year. Does the final product remain as excellent?

Need For Speed: Most Wanted" is a real mixed bag of content. You get loads to do, a great roster of vehicles, and a well designed city to race around in. The multiplayer is just brilliant, and everything is connected up in a really solid fashion. The...

Need for Speed: Most Wanted review: Ambitious, beautiful, frustrating

 

You're bombing down a motorway when a lane-divider comes up fas -

Multiplayer is manic fun ; Fairhaven looks incredible ; Cars balance arcade and sim handling

There's just not enough room to race ; Having to drive miles to events ; Lack of crash camera
