Synopsis


Your knuckles turn white as you grip the wheel and push the pedal to the floor. You swerve around the cars that get in your way, dodging left and right, only inches from causing a fiery wreck each time. Your heart pounds and you can feel the adrenaline coursing through your entire body as you continue to pick up speed. Driving faster than you ever have before, you still wonder if your speed will be enough in this pursuit, because you're not running toward anything — you're running away. You are the Most Wanted.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted sends you racing through a no-rules world at full speed as you try to outrun the cops, outdrive your friends and outsmart your rivals. Hit jumps and shortcuts, power down and slide out as you try to shake a relentless police force on your tail. Hook up with friends and jump into nonstop action with a playlist of competitive events where you can race and battle to earn points and speed to the top of the leaderboards. Get behind the wheel of two of the world's hottest cars, the Maserati Gran Turismo MC Stradale and the 2012 Porsche 911 Carerra S, with all of the latest performance modifications, including a racing engine and brakes, an optimized aerodynamic body, Nitrous Burn and more. Can you survive as the Most Wanted?

    Certain races in the game are offered and when selected, the player is prompted to have to purchase the content as DLC (downloadable content). This practice should be offered as an option at the start screen, instead of fooling the player into thinking that the races that are offered IN the game, are playable in the game for which you have ALREADY PAID. If it weren't for this disappointing "feature", the review would be perfect as this game is potentially the result of combing the best of Need For Speed combined with the best of Burnout. Beautiful graphics, wonderful car control and sense of speed. It just feels incomplete when I'm being enticed to buy something while playing the game. But who knows? Maybe by the time I write this a patch will be released unlocking all of the content that they place in the game and then chose to lock until you shelled out more money; if that's the case, then consider this review upgraded to a perfect score.

    This is by far the worst Need for Speed game produced to date. The past few NFS games have been met with mixed reviews but I still found them to be enjoyable. This one on the other hand is just dreadful. There is no storyline, which I admit isn't a huge deal to most racing games but NFS usually has some interesting story. The control of the cars is very difficult to learn...half the time it seems like it wants to be a racing sim, the other half it think its an arcade game. The streering is bad, the braking is bad. And if you just tap another vehicle or wall you crash and your race gets interupted by this annoying "crash" sequence. if you want a fun arcade NFS racing game this holiday season go pick up the original Most Wanted game that was released when Xbox 360 was first released. Even though it's many years old, it's way better than this game. The makers of Need for Speed should be ashamed of putting their name on this. An even better suggestion would be to go buy Forza Horizon. It's a lot more fun and enjoyable arcade racer.

    I purchased the xbox 360 video game need for speed "Most Wanted" limited edition for 59.99 plus tax. Last weekend the product was in Target and Kmart Circular for 39.99. I called customer service...( a 27 minute adventure) to take advantage of the price protection. The customer service rep told me ultimatly that this lower price was for the non-limited edition model. I begged her to just look online at either Target or Kmart to see that it was indeed the limited edition version. I told her that if she would not even look at this I would be forced to send the Best Buy copy back... she replied ok... go ahead. I jumped in my car after hanging up the phone and drove to Target and PURCHASED the Need for Speed "Most Wanted" Limited edition for 39.99 plus tax. I have it in my car right now and would be more than happy to send a picture of it with a copy of the receipt! Needless to say, this will be the LAST product I purchase from Best Buy!! I will be sure to tell anyone who listens about my experience with your customer service.

    Solid game

    Big step up from last years game. Single player is great. Nice to have every car at your disposable from the beginning you just have to find them. Police chases put you in that speed feeling that the last few games got away from. The crashes become somewhat like they tried to copy burnout but they still fit. If your a fan of any of the older nfs games this definitely is a step back to its roots. For people that want to review by just saying bad but have no substance then compare it to old games ignore. You don't want the same thing every holiday. It's indeed a solid pick up.

    Yeah I used Burnout twice. It's good and bad at the same time. Taking out the competition is fun and getting their boost is cool. However crashing into a non-movable trashcan not fun. The original Most Wanted was a more pleasant experience. The speed and intensity wasn't always there but I liked that. It gave you a chance to go back and relax or build up your cash reserve. This game stressed too much Burnout style racing, minimalistic cops (a regular mainstay in Need for speed) and lack of story. Sorry the last Most Wanted and Undercover had decent (not great) storylines. Is it a good racer-yes. Good buy for 20-30- yes. Good time filler yes. But I hope the next Need for Speed goes back to the roots of the game. I've been playing since the first Hot Pursuit on the playstation. Those are the racing games I enjoy. And on a PS3\360 those are the games we deserve with todays graphics to boot.

    If you liked the most recent NFS:HOT PURSUIT, or any of the Burnout games (specially Burnout Paradise) ; you'll love this game. This is not a hard game as one of the "bad" reviews below states, in fact that person recommends much harder games than this as being "easy ". This is a arcade racer with 90% of its cars available from the start as long as you find them. The others are "Most Wanted " cars you unlock by beating them. The other challenges in the game are more for people who just like to mess around & have fun, or people that like to complete 100% of a game. Its great fun with easy & challenging races for lots of cars. Definitely don't listen to the guy who's mad cause he tried to get a price match the wrong way.

    As with all sandbox games the narrative is of your own making but this is even more true of Most Wanted. The side-effect is that it can feel aimless at times. If you desire structure, if you wanted a game to be meted out to you, you might find its instant freedom somewhat overwhelming. But Most Wanted is all about deviation and deviance. It’s the racing game for people who don’t tend to like racing games. You’re not punished for missing that apex or abandoning that nagging racing line. It’s undoubtedly one of the year’s most exhilarating experiences.

    I had rented this game before, a few years ago, and liked it, but never did buy it only due to having no money. I finally had some spare money, was walking around Best Buy, and saw this and bought it. I am not a huge race game driver, but am mostly a FPS person. I do like to occasionally go fast in the safest way possible---in a virtual world. Nobody gets hurt or killed. And with this game, I love that there are so many REAL cars, and most of them you just pull up and can switch cars just like that. You can drive around as much as you want, and race when you want. Fun game.
