So here's my take after having played the game for two weeks.

Visually this game is stunning. Add to that a nearly endless selection of customization options for your rides and were talking some serious eye candy and I didn't even need a high end graphics card to run it smoothly with all the video options maxed out. My only complaint about the graphics is the lack of wide screen resolution settings. As a result, the screen is stretched on my wide screen monitor.

The racing, in all modes, is fun, though lacking in realism. It seems to me EA wanted to make another Need For Speed game and add a pinch of GTA into the mix in that you get points for causing as much damage to city property and police vehicles as possible. In drag race mode, if you hit an object at a high enough speed and your car will be "totaled" and you automatically lose. It would have been nice for this feature to be extended consistently throughout the game rather than turning roadside objects into targets for your car to flatten.

The difficulty between different race modes is very unbalanced. For example, competing in a circuit race against other drivers is very easy throughout the game whereas running a timed interval race gets tougher the higher up the blacklist you progress. This is both good and bad. While it's nice to have the easy races to generate income, having to attempt some of the harder race modes twenty times just to progress your career is tedious.

All the negatives of game play are overwhelmingly outweighed by the positives. The courses are fun and there are some pretty creative shortcuts; some that help, some that don't. The police chases are loads of fun and listening to the in game police scanner adds a lot of atmosphere.

Runs great on Windows 7. I have a new computer, but I like the NFS series and I hadn't played this one. It's a keyboard racer and it's an arcade game, not a simulation. That said, it's really fun despite being made in 2005. The way the game is set up you work your way up with better cars, better upgrades, and better competition. The police chases are fun, but can be frustrating as you need to do A LOT of running from the police to progress in the game. If you run for 7 minutes and get caught you get absolutely nothing. The longer you run from the police, the tougher it gets. I recommend this game if you like the series. It runs flawlessly, but I have an i5 processor, 8GB DDR3 RAM, and a 1 GB graphics card so it's to be expected. Max resolution isn't that high, but it still looks decent.

I've had this game for years and it will run fine on Windows 10. This game was made with secure ROM. Since Windows 10 no longer support this feature, the game will not launch. The only way around this problem is go to MegaGames.com and download the NO CD patch. For security reasons, be sure to first scan the patch with your virus protection app before and after unzipping. They also have the game update patch. Make sure you download the correct patch update version. Unzip the NO CD patch file and rename it to speed_ NO CD. Copy past into the game folder..This will launch the game. If the game stops working at intro, rename the MOVIES folder to MOVIES_NO CD. This will be the same with Underground 1 and 2, and Carbon. The CD or DVD will still need to be used to run the game. The NO CD patch is used only because of Secure ROM. I'm using a Logitech G27 racing wheel on all of the NFS games and it works fine.The graphics look great on my GTX 980TI. There is also a wide screen patch for NFS games at [...].The G27 does work in all of the NFS games. The Xbox 360 enumerator with direct x8 is needed to make this work. Copy past into the game folder and run Xbox 360e. Once the game has recognized the G27, keep the steering wheel straight and hold down the gas pedal to remap. It's also a good idea to add the Xbox 360e to the saved game file in the My Documents folder.

You don't know the definition of street racing until you play this game! I own many newer need for speed games, and none of them compare to this! The open world, the skilled cops, the unlimited car upgrades, it's awesome! Unlike many games, the police are smart and try to avoid you and take you out, and the graphics are actually really good. To be successful in this game, you will have to master avoiding traffic, taking corners at speed, and choosing upgrades wisely. My computer is nothing super special, and it runs it no problem. I highly recommend this game!

I find myself playing Burnout Paradise a little bit more due to the different missions like racing and demolition.
But Most Wanted has far superior graphics and makes me feel like I'm behind the wheel.
This is still one of my favorite NFS games, glad my dual core can handle it.
