Summary: Just like the last few Need For Speed games, this is awesome. There are plenty of fun race modes and the run ins with the police are very fun. NFS made a great change from Underground 2 by giving the player the option to jump straight to the race instead of driving around the large map to find the next race (which you can also do if you choose). The rides aren't as customizable as Underground, but that's not really what this game is about anyway.
Summary: The amount of cutscenes is low, for some reason. Other than that, Need for Speed Most Wanted gives us mostly fast-paced racing action that you are sure to come back to again and again. The difficulty is the main problem with the game. Cars can come out of nowhere and get in the lead in no time at all, even if you think you're fully in the lead. It's not really fair and that's the only problem I have.
Summary: Now the need for speed series has been out for a while and it is argued to be the best video game series out there. I still say that Midnight club is better, but whatever floats your boat. The need for speed series is a very good series but lacks in some things. This one is no different in problem wise. It is a good game no doubt, but lacks in some things that could have made it the greatest racing game alive.
Summary: I seem to really know at times what a good racing game is really all about. Is it about the cars? Is It about the music? It happens to be all about the fun. Yet, at times it is hard to find a good racing game fun. That has definitely been the case with Electronic Arts, and their popular Need For Speed franchise.
Summary: THIS IS TRULY A GREAT GAME. THE GAME IT'S SELF IS SO MUCH FUN TO PLAY. GETTING CHASED BY PO PO, DESTROYING THE CITY, GREAT VISUAL EFFECTS, AND SO ON. THERE IS ONLY ONE FLAW TO THIS GAME, THIS IS WHY I AM GIVING IT FOUR STARS RATHER THAN FIVE. TO ME MY FAVORITE PART OF UNDERGROUNG 2 WAS ALL THE CUSTOMIZING YOU COULD DO TO THE CARS. THEY TOOK OUT ALOT OF THE CUSTOMIZING OPTIONS AND I WAS A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED ABOUT THAT.
