    Need for Speed Most Wanted Announced

    This game was in the works for two years, before NFS Underground 2 and the NFS community knew it was coming, yet there was no official announcement but now there is.

    Combining the thrill of illicit street racing and tuner customization with the intensity of strategic police pursuits that rivals any Hollywood-style chase scene, Need for Speed Most Wanted challenges players to become the most notorious and elusive street racer.



    "Out-race your opponents, evade cops and exploit the open world in Need for Speed Most Wanted; street racing doesn't get any better than this," said Larry LaPierre, senior producer, EA Canada. "Players instantly will feel the thrill of the ride as they hit the streets in an open world environment where drivers can tune their cars to compete against any class of vehicles or use their wits to out-fox the law to satisfy their need for speed."

    Need for Speed Most Wanted delivers a unique, fast-paced and gripping ride in the racing genre as players build up their Rap Sheet and street cred to move their way up the Black List to become the most wanted racer on the streets. Players will go head-to-head with the top drivers on the scene as well as strategically evade more than half dozen cops at any one time. Add in a dynamic open world, new gameplay and customization as well as tuners, supercars, muscles and sports cars and Need for Speed Most Wanted will be on every gamer's "must-have" list.

    Developed in Vancouver, B.C. by EA Canada, Need for Speed Most Wanted will be available for a next generation console as well as the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, Xbox videogame system from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo DS, Game Boy Advance, PSP handheld entertainment system and PC.

    Thank God, they're going back too supercars. Those ricers in the Underground series were getting boring

    While they are going to exotics, they aren't leaving the import tuner scene. If you read carefully, you still gotta modify your car.

    This could be a good combination, or this could be a disasterous combination.

    Riced up exotics. Good or bad?

    but not always "riced up" they can be tuned too. Tuning is not ricing. Although you could put some dorky stuff on your car......

    YES! Exactly what's needed! A combination of the Club races and free-roaming tuned cars. I can't wait!

    That was an awesome game. Too few cars though, but still awesome.

    Agreed. Especially on xBox. I've played the pS2 version, and it's just not nearly as good gameplay wise, graphics wise or audio wise.

    Indeed? Well, my next racing game will almost definitely be on computer, or Xbox which is rapidly taking over my console gaming attention from my PS2. Probably they just beefed it up because they had the ability with such better hardware.

    NFS-GT is amazing though, arcade only sadly. It's sick, and amazing realistic, and I have a few records on that game

    High Stakes is still my favorite to this day. It had the exotics, police chases, and customization, as well as damage that had to be paid for after every race. I had it for PS1 and lent it to a friend, never to see it again...

    The xBox controller just works so much better on car games than PS2's. That's why I wish to God GT4 came out on xBox.
