If you can find it, you can drive it.
The words from Crtierion Games executive producer Matt Webster about the upcoming high-octane Burnout meets Need For Speed game. Need For Speed: Most Wanted will “revolutionize” the action-racing genre and perhaps even shift the NFS series back into the limelight.

Following up from my previous article, which you can read here, describing the many new and improved features which Criterion Games are implementing to take the racing series in a fresh, and somewhat controversial, direction. Autolog 2.0, CloudCompete, fun and challenging online multiplayer, cops ‘n’ robbers style action, and so much more.
The footage that follows – which is technically single player but has Autolog 2.0 implemented to detail friends’ stats – was one of gameplay footages that they showcased at Gamescom a few weeks ago and was uploaded to the Need For Speed YouTube channel recently.
The segment represents the sleek transition from car-to-car ‘jacking’ and commencing a race, Autolog 2.0 tracking every movement, different actions (such as taking down players, drifting around bends) adding to your SpeedPoints, the race ends but you don’t automatically escape the cops, and of course the stunning graphics and beautiful cars – with the Aston Martin V12 Vantage and Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG being driven, along with a Ford GT seen sitting idle during the cop chase.
In this writers opinion, the more and more footage I see of this game the more and more I want to play it!
Need For Speed: Most Wanted skids onto PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 30 for US and November 1 for EU regions. Did you like the footage shown, is it really exciting you? Or do you appreciate the Underground-style Need For Speed games? Share you thoughts and comments below!
