Need for Speed: Most Wanted

So .. anyone else get this? I really enjoy it. Running from the cops is the best aspect they brought back. And having the whole city to run in, obstacles to knock over/down in the pursuing cops path, and hiding places once they lose sight of you, make it worthwhile.

Also, I like the fact how your reputation is based on your racing skills. All the body kits, and appearance mods are there to reduce your heat level (re: wanted level) on your car. Change the body kit, wing, paint, rims, and they are looking for the wrong car. Course, it doesn't take long to get them chasing you again. And they will chase you, no matter what you are doing, racing, cruising, whatever. If you have warrants, they want to stop you

The sounds are more realistic, the damage model is basic paint scraping. Physics are slightly better than most of the NFS games, but you can do some nice drifting. You can also back away from a police roadblock and do some nice highspeed j-turns, once you get the hang of it.

Sounds very interesting. I might have to just pick it up once it drops into the mid 30's in price range. I am not to keen on dropping 60 bucks on a video game.

Any screenshots to pass on of your high speed chases and body damage?

Body damage is typical of the NFS series, cracked/broken windshields, and paint scraped off the body. Other than that, there is no physical evidence like broken body panels, or the car driving like it's broken.

As for the high speed chases, you really have to work to evade the cops. Then, once you lose them, you have to stay out of sight for almost a minute, if they spot you again, the chase is on again. They have really good tactics, but it's not hard to lose them, if there is only one or two behind you. I've had up to 15 involved at a time. They employ rolling roadblocks, barricades, spike strips, pit manuevers. The only downside is, they talk about it over the CB, and you can hear what they are trying to do.

And I don't have any screen shots, I'm too busy playing

Best NFS ever. I'm #3 on the blacklist now with a Supra, Gallardo, and Mercialago. The cars sound amazing, the Supra sounds really deep like real life one, and Lambos sound exotic, just the way they should. Don't even get me started on the police chases. What can I say, if 17 police GTO's chasing you at one time isn't exciting enough, go jump off a bridge. I'd give it a 9-10 just because I woulda liked a bit more cars or rather some cars removed and replaced by others.

It has all three. Imports, Domestics, and Exotics. They even have the Ford GT! Just wish you could do better paint schemes, but after looking through the vinyls, you might be able to pull of the GULF GT40 look. Just need to get that far in the game now.

There is 32 cars in the game. If you get the black edition, you get some extra cars, along with some extra tracks.

I am currently #10 on the blacklist, I have a Poopra, Mustang GT, and a Cayman S. I like the fact that you don't have to have a highly modded car to do the regular races. You need something to keep up with the blacklist cars, but other than that, you can race a stock Cobalt SS on the regular races, and keep up and win. I love the police chases. I spend more time baiting and running from the cops. It gets a bit hairy when they start ramming you from the front.

I already did the Challenge 69 race, where you have to get a bounty of $500,000 to complete the challenge, then evade. You get to use a Camaro SS, and you are using Supercharged Heavy SUV's.

That is only in the black edition, though.

I have to moderate time with my roommate. He is at Blacklist #11. He's a non-driving fool, though.

Poopra? Man I used that car for the longest, like until I could fully mod my Mercialago which you gotta beat #3 to unlock I think. Wait to you guys finally beat Razor, the most intense shit ever insues. Won't ruin it for you guys but I'll just say that I hope yall can buck off a few cops

Re: Need for Speed: Most Wanted

Yea, it seems to have some good potential. I have the Mustang to do the other races. With just handling mods, it outruns the other competitors. And I have the Cayman S for when the Supra gets too hot under the heels. That might be awhile, though. They are currently after the Mustang. 140K cost to state with one chase on that bad boy.

I think its worth buying. The cop chases alone should up the replay value. While we're on the topic of those chases...








I HATE those Police SUVs.


Everytime I get hit by one I start cussin like a sailor.

That is all.

Yea, when you're doing 160-180mph, they come out of nowhere. I had quite a few close calls last night, the only reason I got by, is because I was changing direction already, and they overshot.
