This has got to be the best Need for Speed I have ever played. This game takes place in an urban/woodland/strange place fictional city of New Haven. Right from the beginning, you have access to all but the ten most wanted cars. The cars you begin with range from a Toyota Tundra to a Lamgorghini Gallardo. You have to find these to drive them, of course. Now for the Pros and Cons of the game. PROS 1. Great graphics, amongst the finest I have seen for a Racing game. 2. Wide variety of cars. About 50 or so cars, and about 20 mods for each car(Like light chasis, nitrous, aero body, etc.) 3. Great soundtrack. A lot of songs I haven't heard of, but some familiar faces, like Nero and Green Day. 4. Fantastic cut scenes. CONS 1. Quite an awful physics engine. When I was doing 150 MPH+ into oncoming traffic, I would coolide head on with another car, and both would kind of... "bounce". 2. Freezes are often. I've played 10 hours and have experienced 15 or so freezes. I would recommend this to anyone who dosn't mind arcade or casual racing. However, if you are looking for a simulator racing game, well, this is quite the opposite.
After playing it I felt it was a huge let down after the 1st nfs most wanted, what it seems like is they used the great reputation of the first most wanted to get people to buy it. The 1st most wanted was an epic game that i loved from the start with its 1st race and your car being sabotaged along with the final boss race where you win your car back and every thing in between. EA could have at least included some good detailed customization that you can see.
At first when i saw and heard about another NFS:Most Wanted i thought it was gonna be just like NFS:The Run but my mind was turned upside down when i saw all the trailers and gameplay of this spectacular game.
First thing i want to talk about is the Gameplay.The game plays really well only complaint i've had so far is that sometimes the world will jam up when a portion of the city hasn't loaded all the way but none other less this game plays perfectly and has a very fun Burnout Paradise feel to it.As well as that you'll also have a free and fun city to cruise,race and make trouble with the cops so all in all the gameplay is best.
Second the Story.The story in this game is pretty much the same like all other racing games which is be the best driver ever.But basically you have to take down a list of 10 top drivers,after that your left to do what you want to do.But at least you have something to beat other then online players.The story also is pretty fast to beat so you'll most likely finish in 3 or 5 days i finished it in 2 days.
Third AI.The AI in this game is pretty,well unique they aren't pro's nor stupid but they do try to wipe you off the road causing things to get a bit more harder but when just focusing on driving they drive fast when next to you but when far they drive fast then slow.
And Finally the CARS!!
The cars in this game are very unique in their own way
each car has a stiff feel to it but will mess up sometimes but the look and feel to each car is very great and at sometimes real although this is a arcade like game.Another thing to add is the car list is kinda short you only have 41 cars to make mayhem with so that's one thing that makes it suck.
In the end,Need For Speed Most Wanted (2012) Succeeds in every aspect but this game won't last you 1 whole year if that's what your asking but this game is a great game for any fan of racing games especially casual gamers so you should have as much fun as i did in this outstanding piece of ar
