Need for Speed – Most Wanted

Actually this is the reason I never got round to writing anything yesterday. I borrowed the XBOX version off a friend and I’ve spent most of the evening playing it. Why I don’t know because its piss poor in comparison to Burnout Revenge.

It doesn’t start well. A new game commences about 10 minutes of yawntastic back story fmv which add nothing. Then you finally take control of a car and it handles like a bus. You’re driving a BMW M3 for christs sake! Its like moving through treacle! The controls feel so clunky and vague.

Graphically its not bad, but its hardly stunning. I can’t fault the presentation either, all very slick, its just the game seems very old school. There are some interesting twists but it doesn’t seem to have progressed much from the original game. Burnout however, whilst admittedly not that different, seems to do a much better job all round. Its far more entertaining and gripping to play.

Thing is, I’m a sucker for racing games. I love them. I can play them for hours and hours and hours. Perhaps it’ll get better? Hmmm… only one way to find out I suppose, if you’ll excuse me I have a race to finish…

Edit: Vondur seemed to like it.

hehe, yeah nfs is more uhm plastic, and yeah burnout has that destruction thingy which adds more fun, but nfs has that cool SPEED feeling… and it beats every other racing game by gfx i think
