le6ilegion's Need for Speed: Most Wanted (Xbox 360) review

Most Wanted?

This is an arcade racing game that takes place in an open city. Looks quite good, cars get scratched but the damage doesn't affect their performance. Let's you drive real cars, upgrade them and has some options to customize their look, not as extensive but at least it has some.


What I liked:

  • Story driven game... not much of a story really but, the fact that you have a purpose to race instead of just winning cups like others.
  • The police can chase you adding something extra to the races.
  • Difficulty raises as you progress forcing you to either have a fully upgraded ride or be looking to buy and test better cars.

What I didn't like:

  • Bosses drive supercars, I mean, if you ram them you will be stopped no matter how fast you're going.
  • Sometimes you hit an invisible wall. its like the corners of the polygons that make the wall or something.
  • The presentation started really cool with video and everything like a movie, but after that all you get are some sms and voice messages in your cell. You won't see any movie until the end.

Personally speaking Most Wanted is my favorite of all the NFS games. Those cop car chases are awesome.

    Need for Speed: Most Wanted was the ending of an era for the Need for Speed franchise, and the start of a new one. It blends elements from both the Hot Pursuit and Underground series to create what is perhaps the pinnacle of the longstanding franchise. It's not a perfect game by any stretch of the imagination, but the high-tension police chases combined with a solid racing mechanic makes Most Wanted an engaging racing game even by today's standards.  Most Wanted is essentially two different game...
