    I'm having an absolutely fabulous time playing Need For Speed Most Wanted. It's not the deepest racer in the world, but I've never felt that arcade racers need to come with loads of depth as they're all about just driving cars you'll never be able to afford, going fast as you can, and rapid-firing "that was awesome" moments: Three things Most Wanted totally nails in my book.

    This isn't a game for racing sim purists. But with dozens of cars to unlock and plenty of tracks to race on, Need for Speed Most Wanted will satisfy anyone who loves cars and the sound of a roaring engine.

    Sporting some of mobile racing's best graphics to date, a variety of powerful vehicles to unlock, and the menacing presence of "the law" to throw a monkey wrench into the standard racing formats, Need For Speed: Most Wanted not only plays fantastically, but looks great doing it.

    One of the best racing games available on iOS, rivaled only by Firemint's own Real Racing series.

    Even with the most critical of eyes, Need for Speed: Most Wanted is still easily one of the best racers on the platform to date. You would have to be crazy not to take this hot rod out for a nice long joy ride. EA and Firemonkey have once again re-defined what it means to play racing games on iOS.

    While the lack of multiplayer is a huge shame, there's more than enough single player and social content in Need for Speed: Most Wanted to make it a must-buy.

    Beautiful graphics, engaging gameplay, stellar framerate even on older devices. Overall the best iOS arcade racer to date. But there is a minor downside to me: cops never chase your opponents, even if you're going last they will target only you. Full Review »

    I have this game on my Android phone & it's amazing! It's much better than the PC & console version except the fact that cops only chase you & tend to ignore your opponents. Full Review »

    Great graphics, great racing environments and (to me) one of the best iOS based racing game out there so far. Be wary of the cops - for some reason, they have a strage attachment to you and your car, and will not pursue your opponents. Full Review »
