I have always been a fan of the Need for Speed Series and it was really good to see the cops back again, they can prove to be a real challenge. For those who have this game for the Xbox and owns a 360 rent it. For those that never had played NFS, or never owned it for the Xbox… BUY IT NOW!
The Good: Like every other Xbox 360 game, NFS presents extremely good graphics. I love the car models and the way they have everything setup. The Car line up in NFS is very good this time around(again), and the cops present a good challenge and add more play time into the game. NFS also presents a series of challenges(about 60+) that will really test your driving skills. The controls are great and easy to pick up on, as this is an arcade racer.
The Bad: Story Mode is a little short, in about eight hours you’ll be done with it. … that’s about all I could think of.
In summary this game really adds to the series and should definitely be rented, if not purchased.

NFS Most Wanted has been the best to date all your favorite import tuner cars return and can be tricked out even more than before. The game has what a street racing game should cool looking cars driving at blistering speeds this is not a driving sim so every car handles about the same. But the high point of this game is the police chases they alone are worth playing this game, the AI is surprisingly smart and vigilant hearing the radio chatter as they chase you is very enjoyable. Online play is good as well but too bad you cant control a cop car and hunt down your buddies, but despite that this is what NFS fan wants everyone should defitnely check this one out.
The police chases are a blast and the challenge mode is fun, but the story mode quickly becomes frustrating without enough reward to inspire you to beat it. It is a fun game overall, but simply too frustrating at times. A solid racing title.
