About this game

Developer: Criterion Games
Content Rating: Everyone10+


Need for Speed: Most Wanted takes on the gameplay style of the first Most Wanted title in the Need for Speed franchise. Most Wanted allows players to select one car and compete against other racers in three types of events: Sprint races, which involves traveling from one point of the city to another, Circuit races, each having two or three laps total and Speed runs, which involve traversing through a course in the highest average speed possible. There is also the Ambush races, which start with the player surrounded by cops and tasked to evade their pursuit as quickly as possible.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted isn’t the prettiest racer to hit the market this month, nor is it the most realistic. What it is, is an extremely connected racing title that delivers the thrill of the high speed chase. Whether you’re in it for the single player and just looking to climb to the top of that local Most Wanted list, or have more global aspirations, Need For Speed Most Wanted has an equally entertaining arcade racing experience for you.

Need for Speed Most Wanted is a highly refined open world street racing experience that offers a little bit for everyone. Collectors will have fun trying to steal every car in the game, while more explorative types will enjoy scouting the lesser-travelled areas to find speed cameras and smashable billboards. Those with a penchant for law-breaking will be tearing past cops at sick speeds, and those who prefer strictly objective-based gameplay will obsess over the Most Wanted races.

With a selection of cars for all tastes, a map filled with sun-soaked sights and roaring sounds, and a gamut of challenges, this is the most content-rich Need for Speed released in some time. It's also the most social, and takes the series right back to its core attraction: the thrill of driving very, very fast in very, very expensive cars.
