This is a really great game. Though begining the game can take a while explaining the story, it's worth the wait. In Free Roam mode, you can interact with the environment like you couldn't in the other games in the Need For Speed series. You can knock over street lamps, see the damage on street cars as you crash into them, and slam into lumber trucks and watch the logs roll of into the street. You can even drive underneath the trucks. In the beginning the police purstuits are rather basic, but gradually increase in intensity, involving road blocks, spike strips, even SUVs the smash into your car and blocking your way. There is a greater variety of races now including tollbooth and speedtrap. The only real downside that I found was that the instuctions that came with the game didnt explain all too much, but luckily it shouldn't take too long to learn the ins and outs of the game. Im really pleased with the latest in the series. Have fun and don't get caught by the police ;-)

This game is amazing. The graphics are mindblowing, sound is great, and the overall game is awesome. This game is a mixture of Underground and Hot Pursuit. The cops make this game a blast, although they're a real hassle, but t's fun. You now interact more with the environment by going under trucks, breaking objects, and more. There is o much to talk about. Any gamer should get this.

I've had alot of fun playing this game. In fact, I've lost sleep over it. I'll say that this was one of the best racing games to come out last year. Not as good as Forza, but then again they really arent the same "type" of race oriented gameplay. I'll start off this review with the good:

Good - The game is pretty realistic graphics wise. I dont know how exactly the graphics are on the other systems, because I havent gotten a chance to see it. They could have been a tad bit better though. The selection of cars is pretty good too. And the story is pretty good for the first time you play it. You get so eager to see what happens next that you dont want to stop.

Bad - The lack of customization was a big downer for me. THeres not nearly as many opitions visually. And performance wise you dont get to pick what brand of parts you get to put on your car like in NFSU2. Also, unlike games like LA Rush this game stays in constant day time. It doesnt transition from day to night. Just like NFSU and NFSU2 didnt ever go to daytime. That would be a nice addition to it. What also sucks is that you only get to have the BMW for a short amount of time in the story. And then, after you lose it, you dont get to buy a new BMW at all in the game!!! Whats up with that? The car lots have Porsches, Lamborghinis, and every other car under the sun, but no Bimmers???!!! The main car being advertised in this game IS a BMW. So why not make them available for purchse from the dealers in the game?

Another thing is that I think there needs to be more to this game...as in it doesnt have enough substance. It would be nice to see more lifelike things in it, such as you being able to fine tune your vehicle, see your engine and underside of the car and all the rest of the mechanics of the vehicle.

A couple years ago i use to play this game on a ps2 but i gave to to my big brother so he would have something to do so I have been playing the wii and my friend told me that he has been playing this game on game cube. 2 years later and I bought it and I am enjoying this game. It came perfect and every feature of the disc works.

From Atari to PS3; this racing game has it all from casual to hardcore. The story is great and you can go into that or just have a quick race. The handling, music, controls, graphics are awesome! The level of difficulty steps up just right and there is only one racing game you need and that is NFSMW. The best in the series and since the installments after; none has came close.

The review below is in my opinion an excellent review of the game I cannot stress enough the fact that this is not a part of the Underground series. People who loved the tunability of your cars in NFS:U 2 will be horribly disappointed, as I was.

But yet I still gave the game a high rating. Why? You ask? Because once you throw off the comparisons between this and NFS:U 2, this game truly shines. I'll be playing this one for a long time.

There are a lot of crummy video games out there, but Need for Speed Most Wanted for game Cube is my all time favorite so far.
This game was manufactured by Electronic Arts (EA). This game is a fast paced, car racing game. It is 1-2 players, where you control the speed and direction of the car. Need for Speed Most wanted has awesome graphics as well as realistic sounds and cars. I did not like the music but you can turn it off if you want.
This game is fun to play because it is challenging and it's got many different courses to chose from. It also allows Free Roam. Free Roam is where you can explore the vast city, the majestic countryside, and the peaceful shore. You can not only chose you car model but customize your ride such as, the paint job, hood, roof scoop, and more. A fun feature in the game is cop chases, where you try to evade the police or get caught.
I would recommend this game to new gamers or people who like fast paced and challenging games. If you are in to customizing your car, intense police chases and vast environments, this is a game for you.
