Review after review, ive heard nothing but NFS most wanted is the best in the series blah blah blah, lots of reviewers have even gone and compared it to Need for speed hot pursuit. Ill tell you one thing Hot pursuit was a great game, MW isnt even in its leauge even though techically its had a 10 year head start. HP had awesome chases, exotic level design and wild cars to choose from, and most importantly it was fun to play, ever since ive had MW ive been shouting at my fkn computer. Races are a lot of fun in MW, granted, but the bounty system and cop chases are just fucked up to say the least. Im not the greatest driving game expert in the world, but ive played and finished EVERY SINGLE NFS game since the series existed and enjoyed them all, even NFS Carbon. Most wanteds cop chases are fun to begin with, but as time goes on theyre rediculously difficult. once you hit the final 3 blacklist members the challenges become just wildly stupid. Youll spend 10 minutes trying to achieve a milestone and out of no where, BAM a spike strip, game OVER and a big F U. For me each milestone took at least 5-6 replays, and quite often a lot more replays to complete, meaning the majority of my time was spent swearing at my computer (in english and arabic) rather than enjoying the solid fundamentals of the game... such a shame. Another thing that really shits me, is related to traffic collisions. When i lose a race in any racing game, i dont care, ill happily try again 100x as the challenge and fun in racing games for me is improving my skill. But losing due to traffic collisions? its ok for the game to be challenging and unpredictable but basing every event in the game on pure luck just saps the fun out of it completely. isnt it just co incidental how in MW traffic manages to appear right in front of you after you land your car from a huge jump. Funny how this always happens at the end of a long race as well and hardly ever at the start. Isnt it funny how cars always cut infront of you but not infront of the computers.... isnt it funny that EA employees were paid to make this game? oh and for the ending..... i havent completed this yet. With a tail of 30 police cars + suvs your expected to survive well over 5 minutes and reach a destination on the opposite side of the map just to finish the game. Ive replayed this scenario for the last 1 hou, and all i can say its definatelly the worst part of the game. Prior to the ending i was still enjoying the game to an extent.... now i cant wait to finish it and try something else. If you hit a single wall, 50/50 chance your through with if its at low speed. Roadblocks come out of no where, you cant use your map and your stuck with a BMW M3 which handles like a mack truck. Pursuit breakers are useless and replaying this scenario more than 5 times is very very TEDIOUS. I still havent completed the game, and i dont know how I will... so before you get all hyped up and buy yourself a copy of NFS most wanted, remember, its made by ea... Id say wait about a month and buy Test Drive unlimited!!!
