Where to start? I think the gameplay could be the most important factor affecting the choice of any gamer to buy the game. After the disappointment of the previous year entry 'The Run', criterion decided to create a makeover of ;Need For Speed Hot pursuit'. From my point of view such an open world makes you want to discover every street of that world. What i found interesting was the fact that all of the 41 available cars in Most Wanted 2012 could be found just by exploring the city. But for such an open world only few types of events can be found for single players. Its just the type of finish-first affair and some cops which complicate everything. Conquering the 10 most wanted cars of the game leaves you with barely nothing to do i offline mode. I personally would not recommend this game for gamers who don't like playing in multiplayer mode. Most Wanted 2012 is fun and interesting mostly for single players. My ratings for the gamplay wpld be 3 out of 5.
The aim of the game for single players is to accumulate points to get to the top. Points are earned by placing you behind the wheels of high performance cars in a race. Different events are available for each car and upgrades goes accordingly. Going into cops pursuits is another way to earn points. Still the ultimate goal is the same: become the most wanted racer.
The graphics of the game is quite impressive. The cops =, the roads, civilians cars, nothing was put aside. You even get blinded by the sunset. My rating for the graphics is 4.5 out of 5.
Next is the sound. Well the sound effects are just awesome. The engines sounds of those super cars, the echo of the cars passing through tunnels and even the soundtrack are just awesome. Those sound effects create a new experience of video game racing. If you plug your headphones, its only get better. But from my point of view there's something wrong about the soundtracks: its only about 3 hours long and thus you will hear, at some point, the same songs over and over again. My ratings for the sound would be a 4 out of 5.
Most Wanted 2012 is suitable for most of the gamers out there. At first you may be frustrated because you might be just seeing the taillights of your opponents, but once you find a suitable car that suits you then your abilities would be limitless.
