Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012) – Review

Wulfy foreword: I have a special treat for you boys and girls today! My very first guest post! My friend Lykos wanted to do a review for Need For Speed: Most Wanted (2012), but had nowhere to put it.

PPS! The game version tested is the PC one, but the game is also out on PS3, XBox 360, PS Vita, Android and iOS.

Reminds me of Mirror's Edge.

Need For Speed: Most Wanted (2012) has the distinct pleasure of being the first NFS game that, although stickered with EA Games’ logo, is made by Criterion Games (makers of Burnout: Paradise).
