I have played every NFS game in existence and I must say I was gunning for NFS to re-make Most Wanted in better graphics and a new bigger map though I find it was a cock up compared to how amazing the original was and in the end the new Most Wanted actually was a complete different kettle of fish and they shouldn't have named it Most Wanted. Though I feel they may have done this as the newer NFS games which were being released weren't exactly catching on and so they named it M.W. in order to boost sales. Though one thing which may be preceded as a redeeming feature is that is literally insane police chases. Though in the end there is the internet as a whole in order to aid you decision in buying the game or not.

This game excellently portrays high-adrenaline, high-speed racing. Fast (licensed, real) cars, intense crashes, and compelling multiplayer make this a must-buy! I do have to complain about the handling - - it lacks the precision that other racing games offer. Sometimes crashes feel like they're avoidable but the controls are slow to react and you end up crashing any way.
Regardless, I still enjoy playing this game and would definitely recommend this to others!

Most Wanted is a great open world racing game, especially for Burnout Paradise fans. It has stuff you know from burnout, like big city with mountains and a lot off-road shortcuts, gates and billboards to smash, jumps, takedowns and so on. Racing is fun, fast and arcadey, but the handling could be better, it's not bad, but was better in Burnout. The career is a bit broken, because you don't unlock licenses and new cars, you just find them standing in different parts in the city. Each car has 5 races connected with it and that's all. If you want to try different races, you should switch cars. It's a good thing if you want to try all the cars, but not that great if you rather stick to your favorite vehicle. And the races starts to repeat after a while, becuase they are not unique to one vehicle, there are about 40 cars and 60 races.
But apart from the strange career the game is really fun cars are fast and pretty, the city is big and holds many secrets, so you will have great fun uncovering them all.
Good but not as good as the original onegforcesa | Dec. 29, 2013 | See all gforcesa's reviews »
This NFS game isn't a good addtion to the Need for Speed games, in my opinion.Mainly because it carries the name "Most Wanted" when clearly it failed to be.The Most Wanted game from 2005 was really one of the best racing games i've ever played in my life.Enough about the old one.This game was ok, I didn't hate it but i didn't love it.The developers tried to create good graphics with the Frostbite Engine 3 and did so which was impressive.Although i didn't like playing alone, the multiplayer was way more fun than playing by yourself.it's worth checking out but i suggest you buy it at a lower price.

Need for Speed Most Wanted does most of what it sets out to do brilliantly and creates an open world racing game where you are free to do pretty much whatever you feel like doing in a beautiful city filled with racing opportunities. The city is a stunning spectacle to look at and the cars shine with unmistakable fidelity. Every single location has unique stunts, races and new challenges to overcome and surprisinly, this does not become tedious or boring after a long while of playing. The cops AI of the cars is great and you really feel like you are being chased down. If you like racing games get this
