This was an interesting step for the Need for speed franchise to me. They did an amazing job of re-vamping the driving mechanics of the previous street racing versions of their games by mixing in a few simulator style ways that the cars handle. The experience of driving in the races and trying to run and hide from the police was great. The passage of time, as well and the changing weather was awesome, and added a lot of variability to handling and each driving experience. Cars handled decently realistically (save for never flipping over), and were very unique and tasteful.

There were few gripes with this game for me, fewer than others seemed to have. The jack spots were annoying, but forced (and rewarded) your map exploration. you never knew when there would be a new car hidden away somewhere.This became rather tedious in the later stages though, once you've unlocked a majority of them, and are having to travel over everything for the umpteenth time in order to get the one spot you missed earlier. My only other complaint was the utter lack of customization that was the Need for Speed staple. It was disappointing to me to find that the only thing you could do was change the color of your car when you needed it repaired, and whenever you had to re-repair the color was shifted whether that's what you wanted or not.

This game was another great from Need for Speed, but caters to a more specific market. If you like Semi-Simulator style racing, this is definitely for you.

So, I have played need for speed for years, and was stuck on the previous NFS:MW from like 2005. So, when i saw this one, i had to preorder it. To give you an idea of how stoked i was, i havnt pre-ordered a game since halo 3. I was way looking forward to it because of the experience i had on the previous version. I still play the original quite often because i enjoyed the gameplay quite a bit. Then the game was released. I have put in a total of like 5 hrs on it and most of that was trying to see if it would get better. I really wanted to give it a chance, after all, i blew quite a bit of money on it. The only problem was, i felt like it took every aspect of the game i loved and threw it out the window. The handling took forever to get used to, and seemed almost like they were going for a more realistic feel(in a game that is obviously not realistic, i wasnt buying gran turismo). It doesnt even feel realistic either, more like a melding of the two that leaves it just a pain to use. I loved the first NFS:MW because there was a great story to it. This one, however, i have yet to see anything that resembles a story. I thought at first that i would be excited about being able to pick up whatever car i came across. And for the first hour it was really cool to see what stuff was out there. Then, of course, I got most of the cars immediately available and suddenly i had no goals. Yes, i could go for the most wanted list, but what incentive was there for that? The upgrades for your cars arent that spectacular. There was no story to move you forward. I felt really no inclination to do anything beyond running away from the cops(tough though it is because of the handling). Im sorry if i seem negative, but the only experience i really was basing it on how it was compared to the previous NFS:MW. If this is supposed to be progress, i will gladly stick with my 2005 version. Wish i could give back the game, but its digital. Got me hooked long enough to get me to buy it, but lets me down an hour later. If you are looking at all for the experience of the first NFS:MW, DO NOT buy this game. You will only end up disappointed.

Single player has no progression. Many cars are DLC only. Multiplayer for this 2012 game is dead. I thought it would be fun as single player but this is really just burnout paradise with less everything. On PC is runs surprisingly sluggish on a modern high end 2017 PC that can run anything. I can get 60 frames but the steering feels sluggish anyway. you have been warned.....

I'm a fan of the NFS franchise, since its first baby steps on the PC when the 3DFX was the ultimate 3D card EVER and all. My favorites have so far been NFS Hot Pursuit 2, Most Wanted (the Original one... not this one) and Carbon which, in my very humble opinion was the ultimate NFS, allowing you to do absolutely ANYTHING to your cars, had car chases, cops, hot chicks and all. Now I also liked the Shift and Unleashed series. But serious a** driving... well, I just do enough of that every day soooo... yeah.

Anyhow, this new version of NFS Most Wanted is... not what I had expected. First off, it's not really about losing the cops as in Hot Pursuit or Carbon, where you could use the environment to have the cops crash into it to slow them down. Then, the cops are rather stupid, just trying to smash the crap out of you instead of trying to actually block you or slow you down (AI? Hello? Are you there?). On top of that, the cars... Oh Lord. OK. Customization is limited to parts you unlock through races, you can't change the color of your car or apply cool vinyls on it or anything, none of that here. The races are... well... repetitive to death. Challenging at times, but having to do the SAME race OVER AND OVER AND OVER to obtain the same upgrades for each vehicle? REALLY? To top it off - and this shouldn't be a big surprise to anyone who ever purchased a game published by EA - the best cars need to be bought separately through DLC's (each offering between 4 to 5 new cars as far as I can remember).

A lot of people have been complaining about the handling of the cars. I do not share this opinion. It's an NFS game, it's an arcade racing game, not GRID or F1 Racing Championship. Also, the graphics are probably the best so far in an NFS game, if you can get over certain lags which there are workarounds for (ask me if you need help with that or google it). I like the soundtrack a lot as well as the sound in general. Nothing wrong there.

So all in all, it's a rather castrated NFS, with good visuals and sound, which you can enjoy for a while but for which you have to dish out another 30 bucks to have the full game. Mediocre, no more, no less.

Takes a lot to get everything working with a game wheel. And then some.

Fantastic games with great graphics
