The game looks great, but I've been fooled into buying bad NFS games several times before, so I'm waiting until I see the reviews for this.

Man, I cannot wait to see some footage of the Vita version...
There's like a 30 second video on Youtube, but it's too blurry. :P Why can't they just show some gameplay already?
Evan after all these years since Gran Turismo 3, EA STILL has yet to figure out how to make realistic looking wheel spin. I mean...really? All that Madden money and they still can't make rims look like they're spinning?
I don't give a rats ass what you all think of the game I'm a petrol head and I say i Iove the noise that sls made it was pure v8
ffs what is the point of road block spikes (01:41) if you can change/refill your tires during race???
This looks boring to me. I understand that multiplayer is probably the real deal, but still. I gotta agree with @thesuggestion - the limited visual damage on some of those huge hits is ridiculous even for an arcade racer. Where does driving skill come into it? If you want a great arcade driving/racing game, get Driver: SF. Yeah, visuals are so-so, but the driving itself is top-notch; the cop chases are great fun; damage modelling is visually impressive; and there are stacks of missions and variety.
i don't even need to watch the trailer! player views are enough to make me realize that the production team, has lost the true meaning of being "most wanted"!
This just looks plain retarded. If you jumped that high or hit a road block that fast your car and you would be totaled. I was done with NFS since Carbon Canyon.
Im just curious does anyone think this game is worth getting ? because its not like the original MW seems to me it takes on a burnout approach im stuck between this game and going to pick up xcom enemy unknown
stop playing need for speed since the hot pursuit, this is also stupid...dont know when to start playing racing game again...all racing game are so stupid, GT5 was great, but it gets boring along the game...
Why are they making this like Burnout (and yes I understand this is made by Criterion)?! This is Need for Speed!
Utter crap! This is a disgrace to the original Most Wanted. I dont expect the exact same but I do expect the new game to pay homage to the original. No storyline, no character development, no vehicle customization, you can buy upgrades in the middle of a race or chase....fucking stupid. OOO YEAA....good graphics....big fucking deal lol.
looks like Burnout but then again, I'd rather play the next Burnout instead of a NFS that looks like Burnout.
yea .....won't be wasting my money on any more NFS titles......they have really messed them up.......gotta wait for Forza Horizon and Grid 2
Wow, you would figure it's a no brainer for a developer to NOT include tires magically repairing themselves in the middle of a desperate escape from the cops. I think I would rather buy a whole block of rotten cheese for $50 than ever buy a game this dumbed down. Stop making games like this for the stupid people, we're trying to weed them out of society.
WHAT????? Now you can put new tires in the midle of a race after the spikes?!!!!!
They F@KED UP THE GAME!!!!!!
The hole ESSENCE OF THE GAME WAS: YOU HIT THE SPIKES; YOUR OUT!!!
Weres the fun and dificulty?
Noadays the game are just made to be super easy!!!! Wicth is S$HT!!!!
@fallin75 I agree, there should be some kind of story or narrative in place to show off why these wanted cars are dangerous and different form the rest instead of just taking them out like any regular racer.
I hated the fact that you have to dift in every corner, hated that in NFSHP, and it seens the same now.
Wtf with criterion and corner drifting??
@plazus Yeah, I hated that too in Hot Pursuit. Not going to buy this game because that seems unchanged. It felt like I was driving a boat rather than a car.
not to sound like a broken record but i do not want to drive the same thing as everyone else wtf is the customization !!!
Why do developers insist on churning out dumbed down rubbish like this these days?. Surely if your being chased by the cops there should be some sense of jeopardy, a feeling of desperation to escape?.
'Oh damn, Ive driven over a stinger, thats ok I'll just pull some tyres out of my ass' - LAME.
People have been moaning about the lack of customisation in NFS for years, and yet you ignore us and persist with this standard racing game crap.
Hopefully R* will make a new Midnight Club soon anyway and show you how its done. Its hard to believe that the NFS series was better than MC at one point, but it was, EA.
wtf unstable fps,no playback,no Ferrari and lack of nfs underground content!!! What's this Criterion? You don't care about your'e fans, you don't listen to us, you only boast your engine, those crappy advertise etc.... GRID 2 still my most anticipated racing game ;P
this list and that ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeXjAObcfAE )cant even compare. Mostwanted was an epic game,epic music ,epic story,epic customization,etc.......
Customization on the move, that's at least something new, just that I can't enjoy looking at my car while the frekin police is chasing me high and low and bust me the second I took an eye for my ride!
Is this game meant to rush you up and down and no break whatsoever? And why they refuse to add the playback????? Why they still don't want to add the thing that racing game featured at its best, a playback?!? Not forcing, but playback makes the racing game a little more fun to watch!
If they have manual gearbox setting and fully remappable controls I might be interested. I skipped the first Criterion NFS game what was it called.. Hot Pursuit . because of lack of manual gearbox. Too bad because it looked very nice. And The Run sucked mainly because it forced me to use controls I haven't used to.
I loved what Criterion did with Hot Pursuit, it felt like for the first time in year...a true nfs game with no bs storyline just amazing cars and beautiful locales. This looks to be even more amazing!
@Gamer_4_Fun Wrote/"a true nfs game with no bs storyline just amazing cars and beautiful locales. This looks to be even more amazing!
Lol a TRUE NFS......... You don't seems to know what that is. NFS was about Nice cars and GOOD HANDLING no shit criterion burnout handling.
@Gamer_4_Fun I think the no storyline is ok for Hot Pursuit, but Most wanted almost needs it, I mean, why would you want to compete against other 10 drivers if you can't actually see who they are, the trailers I've seen so far make it look like you are competing against a bunch of cars and numbers without caring a little about who is driving them.
I really get your point about the storyline, Porsche unleashed didn't need it, NFSII: SE didn't need it either, and a lot of great Need for Speed games didn't have a storyline and they were very good, I just think Most Wanted is not the case
drifting through 10* corners? thats crappy. its cool when that drift is required. is something like 90* or 180* corners
nice more road diversity yeaaaaaaaaaah!! kinda reminded me a bit of high stakes!!! XD cant wait to play this baby!!!
