Although driving games have never been my preferred genre of gaming, I must admit to having a weak spot for the Need for Speed franchise, and this game in particular. I was a huge fan of the original Most Wanted and played it more hours than I care to admit. It is truly incredible therefore that I can come away from this game seeing not only a true reimaging but an improved game. Criterion have really turned this game into a masterpiece and the graphical design and level of detail is some of the best I have seen, despite the huge number of graphic heavy games released this year. The variety of cars and locations is brilliant and because they are all open to you right from the start you are very quickly able to chose a play style that suits you. This meant that I could choose the cars that suited the way I like to race and customise them to completely unrealistic but awesome proportions i.e. My little Corvette Zr1 was able to outrun the likes of Bugatti and Koenigsegg once I had it fully kited out.

The music track is also very good and the whole feel of the game is vibrant, full of energy and very exciting. There are some small issues, like a small drop in frame rate at some points, slight spawn issues in some of the races and some slightly irritating crash mechanics i.e. crashing against invisible objects, but there are easily overlooked when you play for any length of time.

When everything comes together in this game, as it often does, it is truly a mind-blowing experience and makes you feel like a true bad-ass. Some slight polish issues were enough to dock a star but I could easily recommend this game to anyone who has an interest in the racing genre or appreciates a quality video game. Criterion, take a bow!

Platform for Display: Xbox 360Edition: Standard Edition Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Basically, Burnout Paradise re-skinned, innit.

Ok, not much of a review, rethink. I have to confess to not playing the original Most Wanted, but I was a BIG fan of Burnout up until Paradise. So, open-world racing. I LOVED Burnout Revenge, but when Paradise came out, it irritated the hell out of me. See, for me, racing games are about learning the courses, figuring out the best lines to take, shaving seconds of your time, and learning the best places to take out rivals or overtake. The whole open-world racing idea kills this factor and instead lets you do whatever the hell you want. Which is great, if you want to crash a lot, drive around aimlessly and socialise.

Unfortunately for me, I have 3 small children who have driven all my friends away, so I only really get to play single player, and a large part of Most Wanted (as with Burnout Paradise) is very geared towards community play. Don't get me wrong, the single player is great, but I also dislike that its constantly waving it's multiplayer integration in your face. I have no friends, I don't want to know, I just want to race from A to B and have a consistant race experience.

So those are the downsides. Upsides are that as with all Criterion games, handling is fantastic, the breadth of cars is phenomenal, the graphics are stunning and there are a lot of little touches that really add to the experience. It actually is a lot of fun when it all comes together it approaches the greatness of the earlier Burnout canon.

Personally though, I can't get past the open world problem. It's all too aimless for me.... Techically excellent though.

My son is impressed with the graphics and loves choosing the circuits. A good buy and no shooting or killing!

Platform for Display: Xbox 360Edition: Standard Edition Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
To be honest I don't normally go for racing games, I'm more your hack and slash or blast the hell out of it gamer, yet when this title became an option I had friends that played the series and thought that I should try it, so I thought what the hell and gave it a go.

Firstly its definitley high octane, the graphics are pretty detailed and having the options of cars that many enthusiasts woudl just be drooling over really made this a fun title to pick up, then throwing into the mix various routes to explore, a free range mode to have a good look round as well as working out future escape routes was also fun.

But to be honest its fun for a while but after that, you need to take a break. Don't get me wrong, it is a game that occupies you, it will interupt your sleep but if you're just not into racing games it will be one that you quickly tire (or tyre) of. All round solid enough and one I'm dip into every so often but not one that I'll keep glued to the Xbox for.

Really happy got it at a cheap price. Quick delivery. This game is your typical Need For Speed. Cops, street racing and cool cars. Feels different to the original most wanted. Not so much a serious story to it, it's more about racing and collecting most wanted cars and beating ur mates on auto log. Great handling of cars all feel easy to drive. Cool features include ur mates avatars appearing on billboards and also can play Xbox music through the game via car radio. I actually like how you find cars instead of having to buy them like on other NFS. Having played quite a few NFS it's nice just to jump in and race and gradually unlock car parts as you go along, but does lack some customisation that other NFS had. Overall very good fun.
