The premise of Need for Speed Most Wanted is the same as the original console and PC game of the same name. You need to compete in races and speed challenges, finishing as quickly as possible while avoiding the wrath of the cops who chase you, set up road blocks and lay down spike strips in an effort to stop you. This mobile version does not have the same open world structure as the PC and console versions.
Need for Speed Most Wanted has all the classic ingredients of a NFS game. The 3D graphics are slick, there are more than 35 real life dream cars, the soundtrack is bursting with great songs, and there are lots of different types of race, although they aren't particularly varied in terms of their design.
In Need for Speed Most Wanted you start off behind the wheel of very modest cars but as you progress you earn money and unlock new cars, meaning you can acquire the likes of the SRT Viper GTS, Porsche 911 Carrera S and the Hummer H1 Alpha.
Driving in Need for Speed Most Wanted is very comfortable. The default mode is based around tilting to steer, though you can change this for touch-based control if you prefer. Nitros are activated by touching and holding the bottom of the screen. You don't need to worry about accelerating, braking or changing gear as this is done automatically. It would've been nice to have these options, but since Need for Speed Most Wanted is a pure arcade racing game rather than a driving simulation, this can be forgiven.
If you enjoy racing games and particularly if you're a fan of the NFS series, Need for Speed Most Wanted is one not to be missed.
