I don't think I have played a more exciting and rewarding game than Need For Speed Most Wanted.It's graphics are stunning,the gameplay is awesome,all toped with a plausible story.
The story starts with you having a very powerful car and beating down enemies one at a time,until you qualify to challenge the Black List member number 15.I personally got a feeling from the very start that he was going to sabotage my car and wreck it,and possibly take it. Sure enough,that was the case.I felt,from that moment,I had to finish the game and beat him.I didn't get that feeling from other racing games.
The story also presents a number of NPC's,but they don't get along with each other.
At the end you get your vengeance,which felt quite good.
The graphics and movements are surreal,from my point of view.I like how it moves,reacts and plays.
The only thing that I dislike about the game is at it's beginning.When you get to select your car,you don't get to choose many other cars because you don't have the necessary funds.But if the system notices that you had previously installed Need For Speed Underground 2,it will reward you with extra funds.But that only worked a single time for me.
So,yeah.Great game!I finished it 3 times now.I think I will play it for the 4'th time.:D
The Need for Speed series of games is synonymous with the racing genre of computer games, and Most Wanted certainly lives up to the high standard set by its predecessors. One of the interesting aspects of Need for Speed games is that each one is different, and this is a risky move, but each time it pays off. Most Wanted is unique because not only does it involve making money through racing, it also involves evading the police in exciting pursuits. In these there are several ways of doing so, such as simply speeding out of their sight, immobillising all nerby vehicles then fleeing, or even destroying obstacles that immobilise them (such as a massive doughnut for a doughnut shop). The pursuits are perhaps the best bit of the game, however they can drag on for a bit. For example, to reach the top of the leaderboard in terms of duration a pursuit needs to last for at least half an hour, and this may detract the player of a smaller attention span.
The career mode of the game incorporates both pursuits and races (including circuits, sprints, drags, tollbooths and lap knockouts). The object of the game is to work your way up the rankings to number one, through the 15 bosses.
Just like the other titles, the cars can be wholly modified and customised the way the player wants, which works well as a way of expressing individualism, and cannot be utilised in other racing games (to their detriment). You can modify the look of the car, the parts of it and its performance.
The game allows for unlimited playand guarantees excitement whenever played, so its longevity is very good, and thus for what its worth, the price is fair, at around £15 for a brand new copy of the PC version. The graphics are visually stunning for a racing game, and the sound efficiently replicates the racing environment.
It's difficulty is perhaps a little too easy for the hardcore racing game enthusiast, but is nonetheless accessible to all. Up to 4 players can play in a race also, so you can play against your friends and regale in the joy and pride of beating them (which from my personal experience is a worthwhile and fulfilling feeling).
Overall I would recommend this as a title for any fan of racing games, and a good place to start for those that aren't.
Extremely good racing game which mixes the fun of racing, drifting, drag races, etc with the fun of evading the police.
In terms of graphics, the game is quite good, the graphic motor used in the game generally returns good results without overworking your graphic card. In terms of the dynamics of the cars, EA definatelly invested some time in studying each particular car since the differences between many cars are quite noticable.
The tracks and races are a bit repetitive and I believe could be improved in order to provide to the end user, a longer longevity and different challenges. I also believe that, even in hard mode, the competition should be tougher than they really are.
The scenary is nice and some of the missions are interesting.
Overall, the game should have spent a little more time at EA's labs so that a few more functions, tacks and modes could be included.
NFS is the most liked game of mine.... I always wait for the new one to appear in the market and purchase it the very first week .
this time it was NFS most wanted . i thought that its a new game and I need a graphic card . But I was wrong . It didn't require a graphic card . I thought that it would be an ordinary game . But I was let completely stunned . It was the best amongst the series . I have already played it 5 times.
now its time that i should say about the game. it has one of the best story and the way it proceeds . I just love the scenes which are preloaded . the challenges are tough . there are tutorials for the new type of races . it has circuit , drag ,sprint ,knot out , and other... we are suppose to complete milestone before we could challenge any rival and our ultimate aim is to retrieve our BMW and be on top of the list of cops and that is by increasing our rappo .
its the best till now , even better than Carbon or pro street...
A racing game that didn't need a graphics card? I was sceptical. was this really a NFS release? after all, all good 3D games require a grahics card these days. So i was reluctant when i bought it, spending my money only when my friend spent hours coaxing me into it. and i walked slowly home. could this game be any good? yes, i had read the op[inions of other gamers. they all agreed it was marvelous. I was still sceptical.
I finally installed the game, clicked the icon twice, and waited with bated breath. Had i really wasted my money?
I started a new career, and set off. The initial part was entirely a story, necessitating it for you to race once in a while. I was starting to feel better already! it felt like a true NFS game!
The story wasn't much. it was a simple one- you had to work your way up the ranks to ultimately race the "boss" and defeat him. quite simple! but simple didn't mean boring. oh no! not even a little boring! i played for 7 hours straight on the first day, and only more on the second!
Why was i hooked? the graphics were great. the handling was great. the stunts i could do were great. but best of all was the cop chases! i loved making them sweat it out as they tried to catch me(all in vain by the way). it was the most fun i ever had!
So would i recommend this to potential buyers? of course! i played it about three times before finally moving on to another game. its well worth your hard earned money, and more!
Need for Speed: Most Wanted is underground racing action so real, you almost smell the burnt asphalt. The thrill of illicit street racing permeates the air - out-race rivals, evade cops and exploit hundreds of miles of open road as gamers make their way up the Blacklist. Build up your street cred and Rap Sheet with gripping, White knuckle, head-to-head races with the top Drivers on the streets. Then pull daring, evasive moves to out-run and out-fox the cops that patrol the open road.
