Need for Speed: Most Wanted (Wii U) Review | GameRevolution

Despite its best efforts, the Wii U has fallen into a devious trap. Launching a console and then failing to capitalize on eager consumers with entertaining software is a cardinal sin of video game hardware. Thankfully, EA is here with another port of one of their best games from 2012. While Mass Effect 3 made the Wii U launch window, Criterion Games has readied a port of their Most Wanted reboot just in time for Spring.

I quite liked the original PS3, Xbox 360, and PC release, writing in my original review: "[A]t times Most Wanted elicits the hungriest of addictions, feeding on the player's desire to beat more and more friends. While a few gamers might find the ride too fast or too arcade-y, racing fans of all shapes and sizes will find hours and hours of fantastic rivalries." Thankfully that's true of this port, but there's also a handful of new features for citizens of Fairhaven who think they've seen everything. (Need for Speed Most Wanted, Wii U) 4.5/5

"While I did experience a few audio glitches, it's nothing that can't be patched out, and you'll likely want to provide your own soundtrack anyway."

Meh im sure they will patch it.

Criterion do a great job with fixing bugs in their games unlike Bethesda.

yeah, I just bought this game this morning, and it is AMAZING to look at and so much damn fun to play. I didn't get too much time to play though, because I also bought Monster Hunter 3 which will take up hours and hours of my life lol

"Criterion's also used the extra time to make the Wii U the best-looking console version, complete with textures from the PC release and a few tweaks to the way night and day look in game." Let's see mika/dilalia spins this Lol. Great to see a Dev actually trying with the Wii u

Lol the one you speak of has already stated that the game looks worse in like a full essay in the comments of a review from earlier today. What a sad existence.
