Need for Speed Most Wanted (Xbox 360)
Wake up to the smell of burnt asphalt as the thrill of illicit street racing permeates the air. From the makers of the hit Need for Speed Underground series that has sold more than 15 million copies worldwide, Need for Speed Most Wanted challenges players to become the most notorious and elusive street racer.
Combining illicit street racing and tuner customization with the intensity of strategic police pursuit that surpasses any Hollywood-style chase scene, Need for Speed Most Wanted will be on every gamer's 'must-have' list this holiday season. Out-race rivals, evade cops and exploit hundreds of miles of open road as gamers make their way up the Blacklist.
To become the most wanted racer, players must build up their street cred and Rap Sheet with gripping, white knuckle, head-to-head races with the top drivers on the streets, as well as pull daring, evasive moves to out-run and out-fox the cops that patrol the open road. Players can manage their heat or utilize a number of strategic tactics to keep the cops off their tails as they leave their rivals behind to suck their exhaust fumes.
Need for Speed Most Wanted also features a variety of the hottest cars that range from tuners and super cars to muscles and sports cars. You can tune your ride to race against any class of vehicles.

The graphics of this game are stunning (especialy in hd) as is the gameplay, you reach some insane speeds when racing etc through the city (200 plus mph!). There's a good selection of cars to choose from, you start off with cars like the clio v6, punto, golf gti, once your career proceeds you unlock better cars like the aston martin db9, lamborghini gallardo and the mcclaren/mercedes slr (a loovely car)
This game is definitely worth the buy, and from what the reviews for NFS: Carbon say, it appears to be better than carbon!
The game premis is that you are a street racer who has to get to the top of a blacklist of other racers by beating all opponents. The game intro storyline sets the scene nicely then its on with the game itself.
The main body of the game is the career mode where you race against your opponents, until you have enough reputation to race against a blacklist opponent. To get the repuation you have to complete certain tasks, eg, beat 3 other racers in a time trial, circuit, drag race, or crank up offences against the law. These are accessed either by selecting the races from the main menu or you can choose to go for the 'free roam' in which you can just drive round the location (which is pretty big).
To begin you buy a car of choice (money limits what you can purchase) then you can customise it, if you have the money, then its out onto the highway. As you start to get used to the locations you'll begin to have fun (especially if u get chased by the boys in blue - which is also a requirement for progressing).
The more you progress the more money you make, the further up the rankings you get the harder the opponents get and the more times you evade the police the harder it is to get away.
As you progress in the career mode and defeat your blacklist opponents, you unlock more cars and modifications for the cars (amongst which are more powerful engines, better tyres, turbos, nitro boosts, etc) which are also then available for use on xbox live.Read more ›
The premise of the game is that you are a newly arrived in town street racer – your driving a hot BMW and you are after one of the big boys. A double cross later and you are minus said beemer, the only way to win it back? Gotta win your way through the black list to get to number 2 so you can challenge him for the pink slip. It’s not exactly Shakespeare but there is the making of an interesting story line here.
Graphics – 9/10
The graphics within the game are sublime, the inter scene video is excellent and the in car graphics are also really well put together. The game doesn't look to be all flash and no substance though and they are there to complement the game.
Sound – 7/10
This can be a little irritating as the sound from the car can be really loud but then the sound from the speech will appear really quite. I have found myself having to have the TV remote in one hand at all times when playing!
Gameplay – 8/10
This is no authentic gameplay simulator, in fact I found that I could get away without breaking for large swathes of the game and I also couldn’t damage my car! This coupled with the excellent slow-mo cam make for a not overly convincing simulator but do make for a really fun and very fast game to play.
Overall – 8/10
Excellent fun but don't expect a Gran Turismo style authentic racer.

The best need for speed game, true story. This is the original Most Wanted, not the rubbish 'new version' which has nothing to do with this game. Arrived fast and in good conditionPublished 5 months ago by mikeybks
Best computer game ever. Action packed, fun and endless hours of racing. Anyone who hasn't played this game should try and get a copy. Old now but still the best racing gamePublished 6 months ago by Richard H.
Great game! Takes long time to complete with a pretty interesting story by need for speed standards. Very cheap as well!Published 7 months ago by James
