Exciting racer on wrong side of the law, teens up.

Common Sense Media
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is about illegal street racing. This installment includes a new major game dynamic: smashing police pursuers and outrunning them. Other new feature: The game now has an online component , which Common Sense Media does not recommend for anyone under 12. In offline gameplay, players will encounter some light sexual innuendo as well as a fair amount of commercialism in the form of real-life cars and in-game ads.

Need For Speed Most Wanted – Review (360, PS3)

7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Back in 2008, when Criterion released Burnout Paradise into the world, they changed people’s perceptions about what an open-world racer could truly be. Sweeping vistas, recognizable streets and some truly revolutionary multiplayer gaming were the order of the day, and the gaming public responded well.

Need for Speed Most Wanted Terminal Velocity

4 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Need a getaway from the familiar sights of Fairhaven City? Terminal Velocity seamlessly adds a large chunk of fresh land to Need for Speed Most Wanted in the form of an international airport, which offers a wide array of terrain to explore. It feels truly unlike any other location on the map, allowing you the opportunity to speed through terminals and vault up to the rooftops of the flashy, modern structure — but that’s only the half of it.
  • Pros: + Airport locale is large, diverse, and thrilling., + Ton of extra content for both the solo campaign and online multiplayer.
  • Cons: - Only four Achievements for 80 points total., ? Can Criterion keep the content coming? We sure hope so!

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012)

True achievements
19 February 2013
  • Conclusion: I personally would prefer a lobby as Hot Pursuit (2010) has it. But, I am not much one for Multiplayer anyway. Conclusion It's a Criterion game, it's Need for Speed. That's basically all I had to know when I bought it. It is all that, and aside from the severely messed up "EasyDrive" controls, which hinder more than they help, it is a great effing game.

Need For Speed: Most Wanted Review

14 December 2012
  • Summary: " Need For Speed: Most Wanted " is a real mixed bag of content. You get loads to do, a great roster of vehicles, and a well designed city to race around in. The multiplayer is just brilliant, and everything is connected up in a really solid fashion. The fact your level also carries over to PC or even Vita is also pretty groundbreaking. However, the single player content is just so lacklustre in comparison- it almost feels like an afterthought.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (360, Vita) Review

11 December 2012
  • Summary: Criterion continues their great racing tradition with . Sure, there are some minor complaints, but it doesn’t stop the fun that the game has throughout. If you have some friends that enjoy racers, this is a must have for the multiplayer alone. If not, it’s still worth a look to drive around the city and cause some destruction.

Need for Speed Most Wanted

Thunderbolt Games
18 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Need for Speed: Most Wanted is about the driving. Following a short cutscene, we are fastened snugly behind the wheel of a car and are let loose in the open world of Fairhaven. Then there is only driving. The street racing circuits of Fairhaven flow together brilliantly and prompt aggressive, high-speed driving. The city is a fusion of popular American destinations mixed together in the most mechanically viable way.
