If you wanted a little extra Burnout in your Need for Speed, then you'll get plenty of it in NFS Most Wanted. The remake of the recent NFS racing title sees Criterion Games taking over the development helm and implementing a lot of their own style and panache into the racing and gameplay mechanics. The new trailer takes a look at the game's pick-and-play racing modes and there's also a brief look at how to steal cars in the game.
First off, the video gives gamers a brief overview of how to hijack cars. No, this is not Sleeping Dogs style or Just Cause 2 style hijacking. You won't be driving at 120km/h and hopping from your car into the driver seat of another car. Instead, the process is simple and subdued and simply requires pulling up to an empty vehicle and pressing the 'Y' (for Xbox 360) or triangle (for PS3) button.
But you're not here to find out how to do grand theft auto in a Need for Speed game, you want to see all those awesome takedowns, right? Am I right? Well, let's stop wasting time reading and start gazing at some cars being totaled at high speeds.
If you're an NFS fan then that's probably more bumping and grinding than you're used to. If you're a Burnout fan then it's probably a lot less bumping and grinding than you're used to. Either way, the shunts and bumps in this game are mostly aimed at getting opponents or cops out of the way as opposed to engaging in vehicular fisticuffs, as is the trademark staple for most other Criterion games.
The environments look roomy and the extra space on the road means they obviously want you to slide, move and collide frequently, which is a slight change of pace from the typical Need for Speed game.
You can look for Need for Speed Most Wanted to launch on November 2nd for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. For more information be sure to pay a visit to the Official Website.
