Game description: In Need for Speed Most Wanted, you can try to become the most notorious street racer alive. Outrun both racers and cops to increase your reputation and move up the street racing blacklist. You can choose from a variety of vehicle types and destructible urban maps featuring shortcuts, traffic, and patrolling police. Need for Speed Most Wanted also includes online play for challenging other gamers.
Race around an open world environment and avoid the cops. The formula of this game is somewhat of a blend of Need for Speed Underground and Hot Pursuit.
