This game is great. Fun races and a lot of cars to race. The reason I say this is a great Gamefly game because if you want to beat the top 10 most wanted cars it shouldnt take you more then 8-12 hours total. There are a lot of extra races and acheivements you can do but beat this game in around a week with a full time job.

I give this game a solid 8. The gameplay is more fun than forza horizon but the car selection and mods are lacking in comparison to horizon. The thing i hated was that you have to do the same races with different cars it gets repetitive after a while and i seriously beat every most wanted event with a ZR1 it was too easy! But if you like burnout you will love this game. IMO i had no problem with the handling, u newbs suck at a arcade racing game, lmfao!! Yes its nothing like the original but better than any of the shift games or prostreet and the run. Thank you criterion for making this game and hot pursuit awesome.

When it was announced that EA would be making another NFS Most Wanted, I was ecstatic. I loved the original Most Wanted game, and have been looking for a great racing game to play since Midnight Club went MIA. However my joy and anticipation was met with disappointment.

What I loved most about the first Most Wanted was the car customization, police chases, and the overall feeling of needing to escape from the police, or else my car would be red flagged and eventually taken away. None of that is in the new Most Wanted. They have taken out car customization all together, besides some minor performance parts, and the police chases have turned from an exciting, heart pumping race for your life, to an inconvenience. It does not matter if you get Busted because your car won't get black listed, or taken away.

The races are still fun, and challenging, but I have no sense of connection to them. In the original Most Wanted you raced against characters who talked so much trash that you wanted to beat them. Now it's just a race, in a car that is not yours, against other cars, and not racers.

There are no more missions that you have to accomplish to race a Most Wanted racer, you just need Speed Points which you gain from racing, and cop chases. They have no other purpose, than that.

In the end Most Wanted was fun, but incredibly disappointing. Why EA decided to make the this game the way they did is beyond me. Everything that was great about Most Wanted was removed, and nothing knew was added to compensate.

Save your money, and time, and hope a new Midnight Club game gets made.

Thanks for reading.
