Many reviews focus on the copy protection, if you have concerns about that be sure to read them. I want to focus more on what this game brings to the table for newcomers and from the point of view of someone that has played a previous version of NFS and wants to know if this game has enough new features to merit a purchase.

If you have never played any version of Need for Speed and you are looking for a racing game for the PC then you have come to the right place. This is a very good racing game that allows you to customize your vehicle to help break up the monotony of only completing one race right after the other. This is definitely the best racing game to buy if you want to get a good start in the NFS series. If you are still unsure and want to break into the series on a cheaper title then NFS Underground 2 will give you a good look on the cheap.

If you are a veteran and are wondering what the new features are I'll try to outline them here. Need For Speed Underground 2 is the only other NFS title I have played. All of the comparisons I am making are based on the differences between NFSU2 and this title.

1) Graphics. The graphics have improved considerably over NFSU2. The car models look much better and the game ran much more smoothly for me despite the better quality in graphics. In NFSU2 I would get moments where the game would stutter, I have had no such experience in Most Wanted.

I have heard some people have problems with ATI cards; mainly that ATI is a bit behind with optimizing their drivers for this game. I believe these problems are mainly resolved as I have no problems with my Radeon 9800. You will however need a higher end graphics card to run the game.

Just a heads up to anyone planning to pick up this game. Due to the copy protection, this game won't run on some computers.

If you have any type of CD/DVD burning software installed that's more advanced than the basic stuff that comes with the computer / drive, the game wants you to uninstall it.

If you have any type of virutal CD software installed, yup, you guessed it... The game wants you to uninstall it.

As far as I'm concerned, when a game company expects their customers to remove software from their computer just to play a game, I'll look elsewhere. I use my computer for games and work, therefore burning software and vitrual CD software is a lot more important than a game that's broken out of the box.

Ive read all the reviews and wonder where the info is coming from. Fact: There is free roaming in this game just like in Need for Speed Underground, though the roaming isnt required to get to races. Its still nice to drive around though. Fact: this "rubberband" AI catchup thing, can be TURNED OFF! Its in the options. The game pretty much is a mirror of Underground, maybe with better graphics, certainly more interactive traffic. The AI cops are smart, and use shortcuts to catch up. They even attempt to slow you down using objects or other cars. Biggest change, is the loss of Drag and drift races, thank god. You have sprints, circuits, tollbooth(time trial) and knock out... last place car gets knocked off per lap. Outside career you have quick race and custom, where you pick location, traffic etc. There is also challenge mode. This is many small races with a reward at the end. The blacklist are a bunch of high profile racers you take down in order. To reach them you must win races and defy authorities. From what Ive seen you can do races over and over earning $$. Tuning, custom designs and such are all still in the game. Changing your cars paint, look etc is important, not for fame, but to avoid the cops. Cops, that come out of nowhere in the middle of races. You are also allowed to listen to the police frequency, which at times is quite funny. All in all, this game is better than Underground and if you are new to the series, this is the one to pick up.

I'd like to mention that for me, this game was a love & hate relationship. Because of this, I'm going to break things down into the good, the bad and the other, and let you make up your own mind.

Side note 1: Currently, I am 80% complete, #1 on the blacklist and have beat the storyline.

Side note 2: This review contains no spoiler details (i.e. what exactly happens or the ending itself), but does dance around it in the "The Ending" section. IMO, it's not something you'd need to avoid if you've never played, but if you're VERY specific in this department, you may want to skip it.

The other: Prior to playing NFS:MW I played both NFS:Underground 2 and Midnight Club (Not dub, the one that was on shelves side by side with Underground 2). My biggest beef with Underground was the lack of tracks to race on, how linear each track was and the way you had 5 races from different angles on the tracks. What I liked about Midnight club was the NON-Linearness. You had check points (much like a GTA race) but how you arrived at each check point was YOUR choice. With this came an array of short cuts, including going through buildings, parks, over and under passes and so on. Midnight club also let you free roam (as MW now does). What I'm basically getting at, is NFS:MW is a combination of NFS & Midnight club aspects, ultimately making it a winner, with the clear advantage of name brand cars.

The Good:

1) Free roam - drive around like a maniac and TEST your ride! Additionally, you can check out whats where, find the short cuts, play around... It's good stuff.

2) Hot cars & Upgrades - Who wouldn't want a Lamborghini? Well, now you can have TWO.
