Thumbs up Need For Speed - Most Wanted !!


Alright game freaks! soon to hit the stores NFS - Most Wanted ..
I dont know how many of you guys were really anticipating EA's next launch, but after the NFS U2 (which was not a hit ) i have been dying to hear about it ..
new cars featuring in this edition -

M3 GTR (pursuit/civilian)
SLR McLaren
Carrera GT !

am looking forward to some serious chase simulation ..I hope the storyline does not take up much of the gaming ...

Nice ... i didn't really enjoy the underground ones - NFS 5 Porsche and NFS 4 were the best.
Been playing Flat out and Ford Racing 3 in the meantime.

Let's hope this lets you race in the day as well.

Agree, porche was the masterpiece. EA is yet to recreate that magic.

The NFS Porsche Unleashed was the best one from the NFS series and I still love playing that game. Hope EA do some great job with the new one too and not make it like the Underground.

Apart from NFS 5 (PU), they haven't been impressive at all.

My next racing game will have to be GT4.

Thumbs up Underground ROCKZ all the way !!!

hey ! Come one guys... The NFS underground Series is one of the best games that I have played till date...agreed that the NFS Porsche had a magic of its own...but u are comparing two completely different types of gaming scenarios...EA has never let us gaming freaks down...am sure The Most Wanted Series will be as awesome as the games from EA in the past...cheerios all...

Porsche unleashed was the best of racing simulations in the NFS series...but it wasnt as thrilling (because it wasnt fast except the GT series)..
Underground brought to life Illegal Street Racing ...
they were both different concepts .. I loved NFS PU , I liked Hot Pursuit more than Hot pursuit 2 ...
I would agree if someone says Underground true was a flop ..

@shan2nu - your more of an simulation racer, if u like prefer GT4 to the NFS since NFS is mainly arcade..
I played Formula 1 Live 2002 right after NFS U once..gawdd i feel sorry for the Williams ..

Agreed the game is going to be cool!!! But playing with that kind of graphics will need a really high end comp.It will definately rock on the ps2.I loved all the games in the nfs series exept nfs 2 se wherein the fzr 2000 was really larger than life!!.Porsche unleashed blew me away!!.

heh but then the FZR 2000 got you the lap records no other car could get you !
Corect me if i am wrong NFS 2SE was the edition which made NFS popular and it was the best arcade racing game around ..EA took a huge leap from NFS2 to Hot pursuit where minor tweaking and tuning could be adjusted ..
boy i love the CLK GTR ..

All the Need For Speed gaming series are awesome. I have to say the Underground series are simply superb as u can go modifying your cars the way u want them. And abt Most Wanted, i just cant' wait, all those cars, cops, chases.........i'm sure they would be mond blowing

What I hated about the Undeground series was that it was all at night which did give them enough fancy lighting to show off their graphics engine, but overall , while I played both a lot as there werent many good car games in the market - it felt boring.

Check out Colin Mcrae 5 as well - it's an addictive game - you keep going again and again , just trying to improve, take a slide better, shave off any time you can - all with gorgeous graphics.

Flat Out is a cool , toungue-in-cheek arcade game with great graphics
Ford Racing is okay - the graphics are good in some raes , bad in others - i dunno - but a decent game - unlocking cars is horribly slow though.

@binz - do refrain from typing in BOLD format ,before the Mods warn you again..
cheers
sorry about the bold format thingy wont do it again.
Anyway you could tweak cars even in hot pursuit 2 but that was by overwriting game files.I put the lambhorgini murcielago engine specs on the bmw m3 and the car used to fly!!!
ya the clk-gtr really rocked!!!
