Need For Speed Most Wanted for PS Vita

+ Fun and Challenging game.
+ Great Graphics and Frame Rate.
+ Unique Game Design and Menus.
+ Open World Racer with tons of cool cars to drive.
+ Great Sound Effects.
+ Feels like a sequel to Burnout Paradise.
+ Crashes look great and the cars get pretty smashed up.

- Controls are a little sensitive and take a few to get used to.
- Difficulty ramps up quickly if you do not get first place in every race.
- Sometimes it can be hard to see oncoming traffic in some areas.

Overall great game for the PS Vita. Nice looking graphics and solid frame rate, great sound effects, menu design is unique and keps you in the game. Tons of cars are available and have their own races which is different and cool. The game is really fun but the difficulty does ramp up real quick if you dont get the 1st place prizes in the early races for each car. Also the controls take some getting used to since the sticks are really sensitive. Once you do it is power sliding heaven. I have not had this much fun with a racing game since Burnout Paradise on PS3. This game really does remind me of that game and since Criterion has been making Need For Speed games instead of Burnout games this is probably the closest we are going to get to a Paradise sequel especially for Vita. Really great game and an instant recommend to any arcade racing fans and racing fans in general. If you liked the Burnout games then this is the game for you on the go.

Has console quality graphics in a mobile form. It looks to be a port, but a very good one. The physics of the cars is whats the most impressive about the game. The world streams much like Grand Theft Auto games. Some times a bit hard to see text in the game for the menu, also the accelerator and the brake are defaulted as left bumper and right bumper. The game is very fun, a must have.

I ended up buying this game. I didn't think the Vita could actually handle this level of graphics, physics and speed, but it can without a problem. Very fun with a ton of races, cars and upgrades.
