Right lets get one thing straight here, I love this game but I have a top end games sytem that is running a Nvidia 7800 GTX Xtreme graphics card, which allows me to get the best out of the game, so I would say that if you dont have a good graphics card please dont moan if its not that good on your screen. Right now we have that out of the way i can tell you how good this game is, If your into cars I think you will love it, dont get me wrong its not GT legends type simulation, but if you want something that is arcade type easy to pick up, and gives you a fast hard hitting action then this is the one for you, in fact I have always wanted this type of games on the ps2 and the truth is that if you have a good pc setup running on a high res monitor it will make the PS2 look like very old ready for retirement. You know a good game when you still playing it at 1 in the morning ! And if you have ever seen the Cannonball films and Gumball where they out run the cops and always want to emulate it this is the game for you, Road blocks, helicopters, SUV Trucks are all part of the police plan to stop you and with the nitrous running in your car you just hit the button and keep going straight through the middle of them! Also there is a nice feature such as the pink slips, so if you win a race you can win there car from them and wither race it or sell it. I think this is a top game! and happy to reccomend it.

One of the Best Driving Game GRAPHIC wise. I dont understand why people said that graphics are washed out. I think its their machines which not showing the true side of it. Moving Clouds, swinging trees & flying leaves are one of the features with wet roads and rubble all over the place from the damage buildings and trees etc.

One of the best handling of all NFS games. I owned all (from NFS1 to NFSU2) of NFS gaems, and this one has a true punch in driving (ofcourse, its more realistic with my Logitech Momo Force feed back steering wheel) but the handling and feel of speed is Awesome.

For those who cant get pass certain blacklist # they need to get the Pink slip when they win the race. It gives you an option to chose from 3 Unknown surprises (one of them is the pink slip to the opponents car) and 3 upgrades. I literally won all of my opponents car and upgrade them with very little amount.

The Police chase is one of the best feature in this game (last seen in NFSHotpursuit 2, but way more FUN. Your heat level increase with every Police cruiser or the property you damage, so here is the tip (you need to repaint your vehicle every now and then, to bring the level down ;-))

And no I am not a street racer! but I am a 35 years old guy who play NFS MW with his kids, and love CARS and driving :o)

This is by far the best Need For Speed game ever you really should buy it. It will provide you with hours of fun but challenging entertainment.

The only let down is the car customisation which isn't as creative as NFSU2 but apart from that this game is better in every way.

If you buy this game and you definately will not regret it.

Firstly I would like to say that the original game was amazing, which is why I wanted it back, but when I got my game today I find out that you are selling the new one but advertising it as the old one! This is false advertising so get it fixed!

First of all, I'd like to say that the graphics in this game are excellent. I was blown away by the photorealistic textures, real-time reflections, and diversity of locations, and I was running at 1024 x 768 on a Radeon X800 GT, a budget card.
To the person who said that the graphics are average, please tell me what other racing game has better graphics? I'd love to see it.
But graphics do not a game make, unfortunately. I totally agree that the game is unrealistic and perhaps too easy.
It's true that you cannot damage your vehicle no matter how many times you crash or ram other vehicles, and you can almost always catch up on the other racers, regardless of how you idle.
It would have added tension to the game if you could damage your car, especially in the police chases. You can break every roadblock simply by ramming the cars, and then use nitro to escape, which I think is pretty poor.
All in all the game's fun to start with but then you see it's weaknesses and get bored. The fact you can't play as a cop really upset me, too :-)

Being a huge NFS fan ever since the first game 10 years ago, I was interested to see what they'd do with this game, I was hugely dissapointed in last years NFS Underground 2 and thought this years offering might be as bad, fortunately it isn't.
The first thing I noticed was how fantastic the graphics are in this game, and the good news; the game actually runs easier than last years; despite the better graphics. I'm running an Ahtlon 1.4 with a gig of RAM and an Nvidia GeForce ti4600 Ultra, and the game runs acceptably for me with the highest resolution and modest settings.
The career story mode isn't bad although i'm not a fan of career modes in racing games, I much prefer racing games with tournaments and a dozen tracks or so, having to unlock 100+ tracks, far too many to ever learn properly and master is just a waste in my opinion, but EA seem to think everyone wants to spend a month playing and unlocking career modes for some reason just to get the cars and tracks open.
The cut scenes use real people instead of computer generated ones, and they have made the actors look computer-like, it looks very impressive and could be the trend now for future games.
The cop chases in this game dissapoint, they were much better done in NFS HP 1 & 2, with this they just chase you forever but don't really ram you in the same way, and it gets ridiculous when there's about 8 cars around you and countless roadblocks, the whole thing gets boring very quickly, then oddly enough there are no cops at all in the quick race mode. But in favour are the fact the game runs very very fast, like a NFS game should, and the cars handling is excellent, the city is massive and absolutely amazing in it's detail, and track design, the tracks are very satisfying to race.
Of interest, you may know there's a special Edition of Most Wanted known as the 'black edition' available on PC in the USA but not here, well the good news is, the black edition game extras are actually included in your regular PC version right here, that's right, all the cars, tracks and extra races are in the games files, there's a patch available on the net made by some NFS fan, just a little file that unlocks them all inside your regular game, have a search for it in a search engine, the best part of the extras is a sprint race that runs the entire perimeter of the city, a full 16 mile non stop speed fest, and all I can say is it's absolutely breathtaking to play.
All in all a really good NFS game, but EA, please go back to NFS's roots, NFS was originally about the cars, flashy exotic models that had videos and information about them, in car dash views beautifully modelled in the first 3 games that made you feel you really were inside a Jag or an Aston Martin (NFS 3 in car views still look amazing today), and a stable of about 8 cars in a race, unlike the 3 competitors you race now, and please no more Career modes, get back to the way NFS used to be; tournament exotic sports car racing, NFS 3: hot Pursuit was the perfect example of this.

For those who remember the older NFS games such as NFS 2 (It was great in its day...) where the experience was a bit different to the tacky Arcade racing games of the time.
NFS 2 had dashboards and authentic steering wheels. The traffic did tend to get a bit unpredictable but at least they were competent.
But in NFS Most wanted they are a real pain, they stop and start and cut you up which wouldn't happen on a normal road, right??
NFS 3 brought us the Coppers... They'd chase you around and they'd book ya then you could continue the game without problems. But in NFS Most wanted the game ends...Boring...

Also in NFS 3 there was night driving -> who would enjoy doing a tonne in pitch black alternating full beam and normal??

There are no frills such as dash board or even a Look Left and Right option in NFS Most Wanted...
NFS Porsche Challenge had more realism as computers evolved and the cars could stick to the road like they should...

The cars in NFS Most wanted have no unique characteristics except the well detailed body work as well as no dashboard or any general features, though there is a look behind option...whoopee...
There isn't really a huge feeling of excess speeds and the police will catch you up if you were doing 45 or 145 there is no cross over most of the time...

The worst thing I must add though is the basic steering.

If you take a bend at speed it is usually nice to stay in the lane but it is hard to do that in this game as the steering is so ARCADE.

You have great driving conditions and brilliant scenery and lots of driving space but the fun isn't there because of all of the great things about the Need for speed series are left out...

I like a balance of speed and realism/Quality and this game is just like every other ARCADE game of today. All about the modding of a car to make it exactly the same as every other car in the collection and a very hasty design of the basics of proper racing.

As long as the target audience for this game stays pretty low (ie: about 7) these games will never improve for people who know that ANY car handle more steadily than in this game.

Thanks for reading.

Brilliant game loved it when it first came out and still do if u want fun smashing into cop cars and thing then this is the game for you.

The seller delivered the game way before it was due the packaging was more than i expected which is a good thing so this game gets 10/10.

Some of the races are abit hard but hey you can expect every race to be easy now so if your into smashing things and damaging buildings then this is the game for you.
