The Most Wanted Racing Game of 2012

The Most Wanted Racing Game of 2012

June 20, 2012



We think the latest Need for Speed is this year's Most Wanted racing game! But don't take our word for it; here's what the world's gaming press said after our recent presentations at Los Angeles' giant gaming event, E3:

“…awesome is pretty much what they're up to in Need for Speed: Most Wanted.” Yahoo! Games

“With forward-thinking open-world multiplayer and stunning graphics (on PC), this was simply the most fun we had playing a game on the show floor.” Eurogamer

"The world is open, the crashes are brutal and the racing is fast." Dallas Morning News

"No matter what your individual car is rocking under the hood, however, the controls are just as great as always, letting you slide around corners and boost forward with ease." Joystiq

"That's what Most Wanted has to offer that most racers don't: the pleasure of being the best even if you're not the greatest at taking turns at top speeds or being first at the finish line." The Verge
