Need For Speed - Most Wanted


I have been burning some rubber and midnight oil playing the latest game from the Need For Speed series. "Most Wanted" (MW), as the name rightly it deserves is a fascinating combination of RP and some mind blowing Arcade action.

The world detailing is awesome and beyond comparison to any other title released yet. If you thought Underground was awesome, MW takes it to another level.

The game has several options for game play but the best is the "Career" series, which features you as a rookie racer in town who just got busted coz the guy who challenged you (Razor), rigged your ride and also handed you to the cops, landing you in jail and flicking your ride (a snazzy BMW M3) from below your bottom. Now after some time you step out in the free world to find out that Razor is now the undisputed king of the underground racing world and what’s more!?? He has made it to the top using your car.

In comes Mia Townsend (Josie Maran) a street racer herself. She takes a liking for you and wants to help you out not only to get your ride back but also kick some racer's butt in the process. She is joined by another guy called Rog who show you the ropes of underground racing. Now all you have to do is work your way up the blacklist to ultimately challenge Razor. In the process you will evade cops, burn some rubber, win races, raise bounty on your head and delve in some really exciting shopping for cars and parts.

Set in the scenic Rockport village which reminds you of Manhattan, this game features amazing real world police chat, neat maps, great movies and exciting competition both from within the game and from other players. You can hook onto the Lan or the internet and challenge others.

I love this game and would recommend anyone who is a speed freak to try it out.

Take my word for it!It will certainly be the "Most Wanted" on your list.

Check it out on

Happy racing.

Hello Karthik,
Thank you for posting that comment. I was beginning to wonder if anyone out there was actually reading my blog.

On a more humourous note, I am glad your name is not Vikas. Especially considering the fact that you are from ISB ;-). So do you pull strings around there?

The Galacticos have been on a wretched run for quite some time now. I thought Capello might turn things around. But he hasnt done anything remarkable yet, has he? Still a long way to the end of the season. You'll never know what happens.
