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?
Commented on 2012-06-02 19:20:50
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.
Commented on 2012-06-03 00:32:30
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.
