What the hell, we've already had this game, on this generation of consoles already. Surely it's most wanted 2? It can't possibly need a reboot already? The fact criterion are working on it has me interested tho, just make the handling less like hot persuit, more like burnout.

Most Wanted is/was the only really good NFS game this entire generation (aside from Shift 2, which really had nothing to do with NFS). I hope they don't screw it up.

How do you download trailers when clicking "Main server"? It just plays in vlc player and I can't find the file.

Holy shit! Criterion got their hands on Most Wanted?
Well, wouldn't this be something?

They only remake it because of the name, which is poor, seriously. For the most people Most Wanted still is the best "next gen" NFS you can get. Carbon was bad, and so all of the other sequels.

Sales must be so bad now, they absolutely don't know what to do.

Why not bringing the series back to it roots? NFS was all about hot fast exotic cars and exciting tracks and their environments. Since Underground 1 the name "Need for Speed" has nothing to with the actual soul of this franchise anymore. What a shame.

Indeed. I enjoyed Most Wanted, but more importantly I still play Need for Speed on the 3DO every now and again because it's a brill little game!

Hell yeah!

I'm surprised it took them so long to make a Most Wanted 2. It was the best NFS this console generation as the rest were pretty forgettable.

didn't this game already come out? Kinda lazy on the name, aren't they?

ok i see the new charger ( police ) .. BMW 3 series i think , and .. the new Ford explorer ( police ) !

i wonder if we can upgrade and tuning the police cars ... that is something new we didn't see it !

Looks nice as expected, but I'm hoping it a) won't all be set in America - seriously I'm so sick of games set in the boring US, the world is a big place, and b) it won't be full of obnoxious characters like the last NFS game.
Commented on 2012-06-02 19:48:26
Oh and 60fps too please.

the name of the new city is supposed to be Fair Haven City? if you take a closely look at the drivers door of the police car, u can see it!

If these guys work on better boss battles and more particle effects it'll be fine for me.Its most wanted next gen guys and criterion who has a pretty good track record too.

About the game

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think Blizzard's mass appeal mandate sorta touches everything too :) (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's a well sculpted package when it comes to character design and art direction in general. The map treatments remind me of fighters too with their elaborate themes that are tied to characters. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's definitely in the spirit of fighters. I think there's a heavy western influence in OW's art direction too is all. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i don't think it's a coincidence. which leads to my initial comment, that blizz was mimicking capcom with the OW designs. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: Arnold Tsang is working as lead character concept artist at blizzard, and has done many capcom themed pieces for udon. according to his linkedin profile he is currently employed by both. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Well Udon is definitely still in the spirit of Capcom.. since they still do Capcom stuff :P (7 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth anyways, it's good someone keeps the spirit of capcom alive nowadays considering the state capcom's in. (11 Hours ago)
