Ive played just about every game in the need 4 speed series and this is by far the worst one ive played. I waited almost 2 weeks because of the christmas holiday for gamefly to receive my last rental back and to receive this one in the mail and within ten minutes hated it. The car control sucks and is the slowest of any new game ive played it makes it a nightmare to play dont even waste your time the original most wanted is a hundred times better
This game is okay, but not particularly engaging. I found it very monotonous that I had to unlock the same upgrade parts for each car every time I found/won a new one. It's worth a day or so of solid playtime, but I just couldn't be bothered to beat the "story." I use quotations because the game really has none. The NFS franchise in general has been pouring out games of worsening quality, and I for one probably won't buy another NFS game unless they start to return to their original roots. NFS underground 1&2, the FIRST most wanted, and NFS Carbon will live on as some of my favorite racing games I've ever had the pleasure of owning. After Carbon, I don't think there's been a decent game, MAYBE with the exception of pro street, although I enjoyed carbon much more.
