Criterion’s Need For Speed: Most Wanted, is a re-imagination of the title that was released few years ago with a same name. At E3, Electronic Arts unveiled some new information making NFS: Most Wanted, a game that just might be worth the wait.
In case you aren’t familiar with Most Wanted, here it is summarized: Need for Speed – Most wanted is the reimagination of the bestselling NFS game which offers racing in an open world and loads of action. You’ll have freedom to drive anywhere, discover hidden gameplay venues, challenge friends etc. The path you’ll choose will help you to become the Most Wanted.
Here are our reasons why Need for Speed: Most Wanted is one of the anticipated racing titles of the year:
That’s right. Need for Speed is about fast paced racing, adrenaline, competition and Most Wanted most certainly will deliver that. A game which has fully open-world, no restrictions and seamless multiplayer experience where players come and go, is really something. Now, let’s go more in detail.
The right developer
The game is developed by Criterion Games: a company that is best known from the Burnout series. However, this isn’t the first time Criterion has been working with NFS series. Previous time was 2010 when they developed Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, which was, to our opinion, excellent fast-paced racing game that pushed NFS series to the right direction.
Judging from the gameplay-videos and demos we’ve seen. The developer will make sure that all that was good in NFS: Hot Pursuit, will be present this time too.
I will not waste my words here. Just take a look at these beautiful shots (and the gameplay video at the bottom):
The one thing that NFS series has always done well is the sensation of speed and judging from the gameplay-videos, Most Wanted is no exception.
laughter for someone else’s misery.
E3 demonstration showcased a Porsche 911 in the midst of a high speed pursuit, where destruction was truly present. There will be takedowns, there will be huge jumps, there will be smashed cars flying in slow-motion and there will be intense competition. …And of course, laughter for someone else’s misery.
Autolog, appearing first time in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010), was a prime example how social interaction should be implemented to racing games. It fired up the competition and made me grab the controller time after time. I just loved to leave comments when beating my friend’s times, the last time.
Now, Autolog 2 marks the second generation of the stat-tracking fun. Other players will see your most newsworthy scores, speeds and times among the details how many cop-cars were crashed etc. Beating your friends score will also earn you speed points that’ll grow your rank becoming the Most Wanted.
