This is the best racing game yet. With a better story then the previous NFS games and better graphics this is the best NFS game yet. With the interduction of speed breaker (slow motion) you can slow things down for those tight corners and use your Nos to keep your speed as you race through city streets at almost 200 mph. NFSMW has an okay selection of cars(30+) that you can customize to the way you like them, just add a better engine, transmission, suspension, tires, brakes, Nos and top it all off with a super charger and your ready to hit the road. Enter races to get your car back that you loose to razor in the opening sequence or have a little fun with the cops in free roam. In free roam you can play with the cops but they don't play nice they will set up road blocks, send in suv's and even the spike strips. Oh and watch out for the helicopter.

Need For Speed Most Wanted reminds me of NFS Hot Pursuit mostly..But i still find that the original gave me some cooler features..For instance, the in car view. It would of been great to see that in this title especially on the 360. But ofcorse this is the xbox review so i wont be as critical.

Story: They tried something new here putting in actual actors and a not so bad story. You start off with A nice BMW but your car is sabotaged by your oppenet and you loose the race. Now there is this thing called the blacklist that you have to work your way up to get your revenge.

Gameplay: Plenty of modes to keep you satisfied, but when it comes to Xbox Live its not that good because of a certain cheat everyone uses to put there car to the max. It would of been nicer to actually see a normal car against another without the cheat to actually see who worked harder. In single player you can do a lot of cool things, like getting your bounty up on you by getting chased by cops and escaping, and races as in drag, circuit, etc.. But it if fun actually racing the bosses, even if they get a little predictable.

Fun factor: This game gives you a good 10 hours of gameplay or more depending if you rush threw it.
But it can get a little repetitive sometimes and you may wish to actually do some more things in it you cant.

Story:7.5
Gameplay:8.5
Fun Factor:8.0
