For professionals who haven't got 10 hours a day to spend playing games,
This review is from: Need for Speed Most Wanted (Xbox 360) (Video Game)I've always been a fan of the better NFS games such as Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2, Underground, and Most Wanted. I did feel the franchise lost its way a little after those select titles in the good years; however the latest Most Wanted is a return to form. If you're like me and getting a little too old for the `hip' cool story line of the original Most Wanted, or don't have 10 hours every day to customise your perfect car like in Underground you may be in for a treat. Most Wanted does one thing brilliantly - Arcade racing. It looks fantastic, plays brilliantly and sounds amazing. This is the type of game you can pick up for an hour, have a blast, and then put back down. It feels fresh and exciting, and I'm playing this much more than the new Forza. Who cares if it hasn't got highly detailed dashboard views, I want to see the carnage going on during the race in its full glory. This game is FUN and for those of you who can remember when games didn't take themselves too seriously, you'll enjoy this one.
