If Only These Cops Would Back Off Some
5 June 2011
Summary: This is not a bad game, sure it is fun and worth the money, but do you want to run from the cops over and over and over? I gave up around 10 hours in because all I wanted to do was race with just a small dash of cop chases, but you will find yourself trying to outrun cops more than anything. With the oldschool blur of the PS2 graphics, and cars driving at insane speeds your day may end in a fit a rage.
Summary: For me this game eventually got too bogged down with the 'milestones'. Getting the milestones and getting free of the cops became a pain in the butt. The cops seem to have inhuman maneuverability at times. You get into these chases that are just about impossible to get out of and you lose everything you achieved. The actual races were very good, though I didn't care for the drag racing.
Summary: This is an o.k. game. When you first start playing it you will think it's the best game ever, but when you get near the end the races, getting bounty, and meeting milestones are VERY hard and because of this the game becomes dull and boring. Vechicle Variety: There are only about 33 total vechicles in the game. It may seem like a lot but they're all cars so it's not. There are no SUV's/Motarcycles/etc.
Summary: In Need for Speed Underground 2 upgrading your car was easy and fun. In this game it is more limited and a lot harder to do. Also the cop chases are lame, just like people have said they are either gone in a second or on your [...] like stink on crap. I liked the new races and they graphics were OK. It's a generally fun game especially with having a rank but i still think Underground 2 was better. Go for Carbon.
Summary: I have been enjoying playing this game. Once you get used to the speed brake and the nos button, your on your way to mastering this game.This defenitly beats Need for Speed2: Hot Persuit. 1.I think the game could be better if they had us race at night through the city streets with the buildings aglow like New York or Las Vegas, in a couple of the races. 2.
Summary: NFS Most Wanted is ok, but there are a few things I don't like about it. The variety of cars is mediocre, and the controls are horrible. How can you eliminate the old fashioned way of control by using the pad? I absolutely hated that. The amount of vehicles is horrible...only 37. In NFS Hot Pursuit 2, there were close to 50. I am not thrilled with the tuning feature, and what's the deal with the NOS?
Summary: Well, this game is alright, but it still has some things that aren't fun to use. The cars in this game are cool and fun to drive, but all the cars are tuners and exotics. This game doesn't have any Luxury Sedans, SUV's, Trucks, and Classics or Muscles. Not one! But my favorite car is the Lamborghini Murcielago, but still, this game doesn't have all the cars I wanted! You can customize your car, your way, but there is not a lot of customizing coices available to you.
Summary: I bought this game on a whim, having really liked Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2. This game needs help. First of all, the frame rate is lower than it should be. There is slow-down as well. Even the game before this, Need For Speed: Underground 2 looked 100 times better. The car models in Most Wanted are a touch nicer-looking and there is a far better selection than Underground 2, but that's the only plus this game has to it.
Summary: In a nutshell this is a clone of Test Drive Unlimited. A free roaming racing game in search of races to take part in. The purpose is to challenge racers on a black list until you are no.1. Whats new is racing in the daylight and cops. Whats bad are the dodgy graphics, irritating soundtrax and the cops. Its bad enough driving about aimlessly in search of races to take part in but when the cops spot you, you have to outrun them.
