I haven’t been excited for a racing game since…well, since ever really – but I had such a damned good time with Burnout Paradise that its sequel in everything but name, Criterion’s Need for Speed Most Wanted is getting me all giddy. Here’s a new trailer titled “ Get Wanted,” which you may have guessed, is about losing the fuzz.
It’s also all about loud terrible music, tons of sirens, and a minute and a half of “VROOOOM!” the most refreshing thing about Most Wanted is that it dispenses with the tried-and-tested, grinding unlock system – no longer will you have to earn the fanciest or fastest vehicles; find em in the world and they’re yours to drive.
“Make trouble for the cops and take them on the way you want. Dodge roadblocks to evade them. Blast past at high speeds to outrun them. Use Brute force to take them down. Go off-road to lose them and for the first time ever, experience the thrill of finding and seamlessly switching cars mid-chase to outsmart them. All whilst seamlessly competing with your friends and rivals to leave your mark in the world and become Most Wanted.”
I just wanna drive really fast and crash in to stuff.
Need for Speed Most Wanted will be available for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 at the beginning of November.
