Need For Speed Most Wanted is one of my favorite racing games that I have ever played. It is fun, original, and just a good game overall.

In this game you start out as a racer who thinks he is the best around. You challenge Clarence Callahan, nicknamed Razor. He is #15 on the "blacklist," which is a group of the best street racers around.

Once you start the race in your BMW M3, you have to stop. Razor sabotaged your car and you are forced to give Razor your car.

Now you want to have revenge and get your car back. But it won't be easy. Razor is now #1 on the blacklist, the top of the food chain. To race him and get your car, you must beat the other 14 racers.

To add to the story, you get pulled over by a police officer, Sergeant Cross. He pulls you over because he thinks you were street racing. When he is just about to impound your car, he gets a call and has to go. Before he leaves, he keys your car and says he will keep an eye on you.

To be able to challenge each blacklist racer, you must meet certain requirements. You must win a certain number of races and milestones, which include the famous pursuit chases that define this great game.

The races are pretty straight forward, so I will just explain the milestones. There are many different types of milestones. You have to go past a radar at a certain speed, or do some things while you are being chased by the police, which gets harder the longer you are being chased. I will get into that later. Some examples of pursuit milestones are that you have be chased for a certain number of minutes and then escape, cause a certain amount of damge to the state, or get a certain amount of bounty which is obtained by damaging police vehicles.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted sure is memorable. Electronic Arts has struck gold, as Most Wanted is one of the best games in the Need for Speed franchise. It's more of "Cops" and less of "Pimp My Ride", which makes for a much different experience. Humorous cinematics, fast-paced racing, high-speed pursuits, tight controls, and slick graphics make way for an overall package that is worth the $60 price point on the Xbox 360.

Welcome, you're the new guy in town. Like any big-headed car tuner, your goal is to gain the respect of other street racers by pushing the law and becoming the "Most Wanted" racer in town. When you attempt to do this, the locals tamper with your fancy BMW and you're quickly in the hole, losing your pink slip to an arrogant, outspoken hotshot named Razor. Razor doesn't stop there, as he climbs to the peak of the Most Wanted list using your car. Through different races, events, and police chases your goal is to have another race against Razor to get your car back, but there are 14 other Most Wanted racers on the "Blacklist" and hundreds of races waiting for you before you get to him. The story is told through some ridiculously beautiful cutscenes. These scenes mix computer-generated animation, real-life actors, and a fancy color effect to make a look that you have to see to believe. Not to mention, these scenes are usually pretty funny, making them worth watching all the same.

The different races leading up to Razor have the same simple goal; cross the finish line before everyone else as quickly as possible. There are standard Circuit, Lap Knockout, and Sprint races as well as the Drag races that were made famous with the Underground series. Those familiar modes stand next to new challenges that mix things up very slightly.

Need for Speed Most Wanted is a street racing game where the graphics really shine. You see every detail in your Porshe, Mustang, or other racecar.

I've been playing a lot of this and also Project Gotham Racing 3. Both have quite highly detailed car models, with a nice selection to choose from. NFSMW shines in the area of customization. Where PGR3 gives you a few colors to choose from, in this game you can go through a giant range of color choices. Then you can customize the vinyl, and tons of stickers and other options.

You can go through a mission mode where you develop the storyline and learn the characters. You can also do time trial types of challenges, as well as quick races just to have some fun.

The graphics in this game are REALLY nice. First, the car models are great - from the detail of the body to the interior and lights. Next, the characters are really well done, far better than just about any other XBox 360 game I've played so far. The face textures, especially, are quite smooth and life-like. The backgrounds are also quite nice. I really like the mountains in the background, with the forest running down the sides.

The sounds are reasonably good, with the dialogue being OK. Some of it seems a little silly, from the cop deciding to key your car, and the girls acting like toys.

What it really comes down to, though, is having fun street racing, and customizing and choosing new cars. This game obviously isn't realistic. If you slam your car into gas station trash cans at 140mph, your car comes to an immediate stop without any damage at all to the car or the trash cans. You can drive your car down through street light after street light, leaving a trail behind you. The game's about fun fantasy.
