On the flip side, what impresses most about the game is the attention to detail. You are in a truly beautiful and varied city. Every little piece of it has been thought out and well-rendered. It is a pleasure to drive through at 30 miles an hour or 130 miles an hour, and even though you're going to do the latter a whole lot more than you do the former, you're not going to be unhappy if you take a minute to smell the roses. The cars, as you would expect, are gorgeous as well, even when they enter a state of disrepair… and don't get me started on how good the sparks from your wheels look after the cops take out your tires with a spike strip.
Criterion has put out another great racer here, and if you're into arcade-style free-roaming racing, you're not going to want to pass on Need for Speed: Most Wanted.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted is rated E10+ (Everyone 10 and older) by the ESRB for Alcohol Reference, Comic Mischief, Violence. This game can also be found on: Xbox 360 and PC.
