Picked Up the Limited Edition- Here's my take on it

Summary: Some helpful things to consider if you are somewhat discouraged by this game not being another Burnout Paradise (It's not, just BOP's cool cousin, or maybe a glimpse of an upcoming Burnout?).

Update: Defeated all Most Wanted Cars, 76% finished.

though chat pad may be easier to use with this app or a keyboard like bboxee?and #escapethegrid went through town. Thats Forza Horizon Press show.

Played a bit of Most Wanted today- thoughts.

I gave this a try at the Play Expo. The singleplayer demo I played was only one race and a portion of the map.

 

The race was a checkpoint race. There's takedowns in it, but no slow-down camera for it (it got a bit tiring after a while in Paradise, anyway - especially  doing a few straight after each other). The handling is great but turning requires a little bit more effort than Paradise - you can't simply glide round any corner with ease.

Who's Getting Most Wanted?

Need for Speed: Most Wanted is getting closer, and it really does look like a sequel to Burnout Paradise.

Although it is a bit strange that there isn't really that much information about the game yet, I have already seen enough in the trailers that reminds me of Paradise. Billboards, smash gates, freeburn online with races and those brilliant challenges, takedowns, etc. to convince me to get the game.

I also love how you unlock cars by finding them in the city. As soon as I get past the tutorial, I'll probably spend a few hours looking around the city.

Hot Pursuit / Paradise Mash Up!

First impressions were that Most Wanted is going to be Paradise 2, but now it looks more likea mash up of Paradise and Hot Pursuit.
