Need For Speed Most Wanted Hits the Road

Need For Speed Most Wanted is now available at retail stores and on Origin.com! This latest installment of the classic racing franchise brings all new trouble from running from the cops to eliminating your competition.

Need For Speed Most Wanted brings leaderboards to a new level with Autolog 2.0 that displays your record speeds, times, pursuits and jump distances directly in your game world. You can cruise past any speed camera, Jack Spot or jump to view its unique leaderboard, and then take a run up, hit the gas and see if you can top it. Hit the biggest air off any billboard jump, and your face will even display on the billboard in your friends’ games!

This edition also goes cross-platform. The all-new CloudCompete technology lets you extend your experience beyond your console or PC with a cloud-based scoring system that tracks Speed Points and game accomplishments no matter where you play through http://www.needforspeed.com. Whether you play on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android or PlayStation Vita it will all count toward your progress in the game.

Once you pick up a copy you’ll immediately have access to all the cars in the game – no need to worry about unlocking new content. All you have to do is find the cars and you’re good to go. Drive up, hop in and the cars and new set of races are all yours.

Hit the road and let us know what you think, and congrats to our Criterion Games team on a great game!

    WORST NEED FOR SPEED EVER!!! i have owned just about every need for speed ever made and by far, this is not only the worst NFS ever, but the worst racing game ever. they should be embarrassed that they made it. i wont be buying any future games from them. its like the driving control and graphics of GTA with an almost identical world from Burnout: Paradise.

    Worst game ever!! Can't believe you guys would down grade to this hot pursuit was 100x better we want to play as a cop an racer. This is my biggest regret. You guys need to fix this. I want my friends to chase me as a cop and use weapons on me. This is no fun no point. Thanks for the big disappointment! You let all the NFS fans down on this one. You need to recall the game and put more fun work on it. Instead of rushing it out to get the big bucks into EA account.

    I am loving the game, I like that it is focused on multiplayer, good replacement for NFSW. Only downsides are a bit poor optimization and map design reminds burnout paradise too much, feels a bit nostalgic. But add me on origin so we can play together!

    Yet another NFS ruined. NFSUnderground 2 was better than this. To much time spent on graphics and stupid cinematics at the beginning of the races and not enough time spent on the actual gameplay. You should have made it more like the orginal Most Wanted (which is without a doubt, the best racing game to this day) but improved the graphics. Next to no car customization, boring repetitve races and the annoying Burnout like screen when you crash makes this the WORST NFS title ever.

    And the fact that you think having all the cars unlocked from the start is a good thing is ridiculous, 1 of the best parts of the original Most Wanted was unlocking better cars as you progressed through the game. Making it fun to play unlike this game which is more frustrating.

    I am NOT pleased with this game! I purchased the game as a direct download . EA or Origin do not send you any kind of directions on how the game works. Which puts me at a GREAT disadvantage with everyone. Also if I wanted to play demo derby ALL the time I would have bought it, again disappointing. The new name should be "DEMO DERBY----LEAST WANTED"

    Where is the 'on the hood' Camera for driving? There is only 2 available? 3rd person and bumper cam? Bumper cam is very hard to use because you can't see over hills very well, and 3rd person is uncomfortable - no one actually drives in 3rd person. Can you please patch this and put the on the hood camera back in please? This was my favourite thing from the first most wanted.

    I bought the vita version. It is a ok game at best. It would be much better if you would let me use the D-pad insted of joysticks. JOYSTICKS SUCK FOR DRIVING GAMES

    Okay, so this is the most RIDICULOUS NFS game ever made. I own EVERY NFS game made, and I am SO disappointed in this new game. The gameplay is too much like Grand Theft Auto and Burnout: Paradise. Why steal other peoples ideas, slap them into a game with great graphics, and rush the release so that you cash in the big bucks. Recall this game and make it unique, and make it more like the NFS games I have played growing up. That would be GREATLY appreciated. EA Games has disappointed me in the past with sucky games, but this is BY FAR the most disappointed I have EVER been in a game. The fact that it is my FAVORITE game series, SEVERELY pisses me off.... Get it together, guys, and make this **** right.

    I am completely disappointed! I was so excited when I found out this game was being re-made. I bought the original NFSMW for PS2 and played it start to finish probably three times. The bought it again for Xbox years later and did it again! I played this game for two four hours and was so pissed off I wanted to through it out the window. First of all get those damn pop up notifications out of the center of the screen while driving!

      Second, why do I want access to all of the cars right from the start? You loose interest immediately because there is nothing to work for! Third, the customization aspect of this game is BS! That's what was so awesome about the original! Being able to "make it yours!" Now all you can do is drive though a little corner garage and instantly change your paint. Which not only do you have no control over but does not help you in evading the cops! Last but not least, what is up with wrecking the car every 15 seconds? I'm not an expert race gamer but I'm pretty good. This is the most annoying part for sure! In the original it was awesome to take a car and just plow through anything on the road, now you have to watch a stupid video of you car rolling and then finally restart. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!! Get the original and deal with the outdated graphics. You will enjoy it so much more!
