Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Playstation 3
Need for Speed: Most Wanted is an open world racing game that returns to the concept of the 2005 game Need for Speed: Most Wanted and it is the second title in the long-running series to be developed by Criterion Studios, following Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit in 2010. The game is set in the fictional city Fairhaven which the player can freely explore from inside a car. It is a busy, urban location with the city centre surrounded by docklands and industrial parks, a departure from the scenic routes from Need for Speed: The Run the year before. The game focuses on an aggressive racing style, weaving through traffic at a high speed, but it still retains many simulator elements compared to the more arcade Burnout series with its takedowns.
Unlike the original game there is no story. The player merely races to become the Most Wanted on the Speed Wall. The blacklist from the original Most Wanted (renamed to "Most Wanted List") returns with ten rivals to beat to acquire their car. By participating in races SpeedPoints are earned to upgrade the vehicles through modifications for boosts, tuned gearing, engine, bodywork (also to crash through roadblocks), suspension and tires. They are also collected by hitting obstacles such as billboards (with distance records), speed cameras (also with records), security gates and other obstacles. SpeedPoints add to a SpeedLevel with over 70 different rankings based on the amount of collected points. Reaching a new SpeedLevel is rewarded with new cars, license plates and opening up Most Wanted races. License plates are also earned as a form of "achievements" through different challenges.
