Need for Speed: Most Wanted for PC, PS2 and etc. is the next installment in the series developed since the mid-nineties of the twentieth century. After a night escapades with both parts of Need for Speed: Underground, the times has come to move in entirely different conditions. Still, the game takes place in a metropolis with a fairly large area and a large variation (residential areas, industrial zones, etc.).

The game puts before us the task of gaining title of the best street driver in the so-called Black List. We not only take part in numerous illegal races in normal daily city traffic, but are also often resorted by the vicious policemen. It is worth noting that at the time of a high degree of danger situation (e.g. sudden appearance of a truck ahead of us) the time slows down much like in the famous bullet-time effect of the The Matrix movie, so you can relatively easily and accurately perform appropriate maneuvers .

As usual, the developers made sure to obtain adequate licenses for many authentic cars - including BMW M3 and Mazda RX-8. Each car is susceptible to internal and external tuning, In addition, the game has a realistic damage system, so hitting a concrete wall at an excessive speed simply ends the game.

The creators of Need for Speed: Most Wanted for PC, PS2 and etc. made every effort to ensure that their work represents a magnificent visual level. Three-dimensional models of vehicles and all elements of the environment are made with exceptional attention to small details in order to satisfy even the biggest graphics purists. In addition, the game has a dynamic soundtrack, as well as a real treat for network enthusiasts in the form of multiplayer online mode.
