    Making a name for youself by climbing the game's Black List, aka series of bad-ass mo-fos you must beat, is good fun.

    Does Most Wanted feed my adrenaline addiction from start to finish? No - repetition, while unavoidable in a game ilke this, ultimately does in the game's ability to raise your blood pressure. But while it lasts...damn, it's good. [Feb 2006, p.80]

    A superb arcade racer that's a feature or two away from greatness. [Feb 2006, p.88]
  4. Fantastic gameplay variety, and stunning graphics make this a worthwhile investment if you own a high-end PC.
  5. Most Wanted brings the police back in force, and the game benefits greatly from it.
  6. The addition of smart and relentless police pursuers has reinvigorated this popular driving series.

    It’s a nice, clean package that delivers enough hi-octane chases and enjoyment to warrant a purchase. [Christmas 2005, p.121]

    Yes, maybe the game is a little long, but it is very interesting, and how many people still use this BMW in different parts of "need for speed". So to speak forever in the heart.
