My personal opinion, this is one of my all time favorite games. I spent weeks running from the cops, over and over again. This is definitely the BEST Need for Speed game they have every made. I highly recommend this game to everyone.
*Note, Apparently the 2005 version is suppose to be more challenging. This game is more fun when the cops try harder, so I ordered the 2005 version...
I also ordered, Need for Speed Undercover. I am excited to play that one again as well. But, I still prefer Need for Speed Most Wanted, over any other game....
This version you have to race and beat all 15 blacklist members to become the Most Wanted. There is a story line unlike the newer version. In this version the coding puts you in the street race, you can smash through road blocks and interact with the police.
I have one gripe about this game and it is minimal. The only issue is that there is no way that I have found to switch the vehicle to automatic shifting. Now I am a hardcore racing sim gamer and I love being able to shift, but there are sometimes that I would rather let the car do it and I know some gamers feel the same way.
Compared to past games in the NFS series, there is a great deal of emphasis on the police pursuits rather than the racing. There are 6 levels, but level 6 is rarely seen. So most of the time you'll be no higher than level 5, which is enough, believe me.
As for the difficulty of the races and challenges, that can vary depending on challenge and circumstances. Obviously everything will be easy at the start, but there can be times where your opponents, ( be they racers or cops) act rather stupidly. One note is that I've tried the Black Edition of this game and the normal one, and would like to point out one thing. In the Black Edition, you are allowed to own 25 cars in career mode but are allowed only 3 under the "my cars" section for use in single race. In the standard edition, you can only own 21 cars in career mode at least 13 in "my cars."
Finally, the graphics are very good, with excellent reflections and all the workings of the city. In my own opinion, as I have tried Carbon (the sequel to Most Wanted) on the standard Xbox (not the 360), I have found this to be preferable to Carbon.
