Touted by Electronic Arts as "the most dangerous Need for Speed yet,"Need for Speed Most Wanted is also the most visually arresting entry in the venerable racing franchise, pulling even further ahead of the pack thanks to an impressive array of personalization and user control options.

If you've played previous Need for Speed entries, you know what to expect this time around: White-knuckle racing through the streets, with the needle in the red and cops and competitors on your tail. It's a tried-and-true formula that works, but what sets Most Wanted apart from its predecessors is its attention to detail: The game captures the look and feel of high-velocity motion with uncannily visceral accuracy, bolstered by photo-realistic vehicles and cityscapes. Gamers can select and customize close to three dozen models including the SRT Viper GTS, Porsche 911 Carrera S and Hummer H1 Alpha, and for the first time on mobile, cars suffer true-to-life damage when they crash. Most Wanted also offers a choice between touch-based or tilt-based steering as well as cross-platform leaderboards. Buckle up--this is one hell of a ride.
