I have mentioned this game time and time again in the past, yet I haven’t really given it its own article. Who can say, hand down, that they have never really heard of Need for Speed in their life. Almost all ( except the old people ) people alive have played a Need for Speed game at some point ( after all, the franchise has been around since the beginning of time – not that long, but it was here in the ’90s ). This Need for Speed Most Wanted ( the Need for Speed game that stole the name of one of the most favorite Need for Speed games out there ) if by far the best looking one yet.
I am glad to say that I have also played the PC version. However, if by chance you lack a steering wheel, there are little chances that you can play the game right. The car control is quite realistic, but a very big step considering the control of the previous games. I really wasn’t used to that having played mostly sandbox type games. This game if one of those few cases in which the mobile version of the game actually felt better to control than the PC one. I’d like to say that their graphic was also similar, but since I was able to play the PC one on its highest of settings perfectly, that wouldn’t really be the truth. Still, it’s by far the best looking Android Game thus far ( until the Tegra 4 games come out, anyway ).
This game isn’t exactly cheap, but for its high price it provides quite a bit of content. It will allow you to do just about anything the PC version did ( without the free-roam ) and it also provides you with Multiplayer. However, leaving the price aside, I need to warn you of something: this game will occupy close to 2 GB of space, so if you’re planning on getting it on anything other than Wi-Fi, I strongly advise you to reconsider.

What I liked really much in the PC version of this game was the soundtrack. Leaving all things aside, the soundtrack of the game was absolutely brilliant. I am glad to see that they also used the same soundtrack in the Android version as well, making the game feel as epic as possible. Your goal here is the same as the PC game goal: become the Most Wanted. The story is simple: there are 10 Most Wanted racers. You need to win races and gain prestige in order to be able to challenge them and then one by one climb their ladder until you’re at the top. For the first time ever on mobile, this game allows you to experience full car damage, and for cars such as the SRT Viper GTS, Porche Carrera 911 S ans Hummer H1 Alpha, that car damage sort of hurts you deeply.
This game has full support for Origin, so when you think you’ve mastered it and beaten every Most Wanted champ to be beat in the main storyline, you can go online and get put in your place as the mediocre driver that you are by those more experienced than you. The multiplayer feature allows you to test all of your skills in races against other people who have also finished the game and prove once and for all who the most wanted racer is.
Here is a brief trailer of how the game looks and feels. I hope you go out and get it as for how much content it provides, it’s a pretty ise purchase.
