    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.

    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.

    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.

    It may not reinvent the wheel, but it doesn't do anything much wrong as such and if all you're looking for is a fix of speed, you won't be disappointed.

    With gorgeous visuals and smooth controls, Need for Speed: Most Wanted is a great, if unsurprising, pick for your mobile racing needs.

    Most Wanted on smartphones is a wonderful looking game that lacks some quality gameplay wise.

    Superficial tuning, an unbalanced difficulty level: Aside from the visuals this as average an arcade racer can get.

    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. Expand

    Need For Speed: Most Wanted on IPhone is a fast and exhilarating experience. It feels very fluid as you fly down the beautiful streets at very high speeds. Expand

    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. Expand

    The assessment presented here do not adequate. This is the way to be a drug addict that put so high estimate the game that feels to alpha test is not has reached. Well how you could have done such a control? Where the story? Where optimization of the game? What is the interest should be? Sucks, and not a game. Collapse
