An Improvement Over Last Year But Still Not As Good As Hot Pursuit,
This review is from: Need for Speed Most Wanted - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
As a person fairly new to the racing game genre, I have to say I've been very pleased with this NFS game. Is it the best graphics? The best details on cars? No. But is it fun? Absolutely.
Last year's NFS The Run had a lot of potential but it really fell flat for me. The multiplayer was ok, but just pretty bland. This year I've had a lot of fun with it. The various side games, the autolog (which to me has been finally perfected), the variety of games are all awesome.
Now, I still don't think it's as good as Hot Pursuit. That may have been one of the 10 best games I've ever played in terms of pure enjoyment. But I don't quite understand the bad reviews on this website. But in my point of view, racing games aren't the type of thing that is best for single player anymore. Not with all of the options available on multiplayer.
If you're a person that hates online play, then I can understand the 1 and 2 star ratings. Single player is very formulaic. And there are some games I too prefer playing single player.
But from a multiplayer game point of view, I think it is well worth the $60 investment.
