The driving model of the game has been described as "deep, physical and fun", not as arcade-styled as the Burnout series and Hot Pursuit, but far from a simulator. Most Wanted has a range of real-world vehicles, a mix of muscle cars, street racers and exotics, described as "the wildest selection of cars yet". The cars can be altered with performance upgrades, such as reinflatable tires, transmission, engine, nitrous oxide, and body work that enables players to crash through roadblocks, have a higher top speed, and accelerate faster. A feature called EasyDrive enables players to modify their vehicle performance while in usage. Almost all the cars are available from the start, hidden in different locations throughout Fairhaven; the player has to discover them in order to unlock them.

The game's subtitle alludes to a list of Fairhaven's ten "most wanted" racers, and you'll have to work your way up by challenging the other drivers for their spots. Once you've beaten them on the track, you'll need to take them out for good to earn their rides. These races act like boss battles, with superpowered concept cars that require finesse and fast wheels to outrun, and are a thrill to drive once you get your hands on them.
Your climb up the wanted list is perhaps the most structured part of this largely freeform game, and the open-world philosophy extends to vehicle selection, too; most cars are yours right from the start, while others become available as you find them hidden around town at 'Jack Spots'. There's a huge collection of licensed cars to chose from, including modified sedans and coupes, classic objects of desire like Porches, Maseratis, and Lamborghinis, and even the all-electric Tesla Roadster. Car lovers will be over the moon, but you don't need to be a piston junkie to appreciate the variety - each model handles differently, and has its own set of races to run and upgrades to win.
The best part about the game's design is that it can be as open-world or as menu-based as you like at any given moment. When you're looking for a race or Most Wanted showdown, you can either set a course to the event on your mini-map and drive there, starting the challenge by revving your engine - or you can just press right on the D-Pad and use the Easy Drive menu to quick-start any event. It's nice to see a game embrace immersion without jettisoning traditional menus, and the fact that the open-world elements are largely optional means they never get old. In fact, simply cruising around Fairhaven is one of the most enjoyable parts of the experience. It's easy to finish one event with every intention of heading straight to the next race, only to find yourself still roaming the streets an hour later, hitting jumps and finding billboards, goading cops into giving chase, or setting personal bests on speedcams.
Part of what makes Most Wanted U so much fun is the smooth, tight control, which lands in a sweet spot between semi-realistic handling and pure, arcade fun. Driving is responsive and intuitive, but it's still easy enough to lose control of your ride by making large adjustments at full speed - as you might logically expect. It feels like you're driving the dream cars that you are, and a combination of drifting, pedal-feathering, and judicious use of the handbrake makes almost anything possible. Pulling off hairpin turns at speed feels fantastic, and crashing isn't such a big headache either; recoveries are Lakitu-like in their speed and won't set you back too far.
As much as Need for Speed: Most Wanted U does right, it's not a perfect game, and every once in a while its seams start to show. We experienced a few graphical glitches, including the odd instance of pop-up and shadows jumping while standing still, and two serious freezes that required unplugging the Wii U from the wall. And while the game normally does a good job of masking load times with in-engine cinematic sequences, its commitment to a seamless experience leads to a strange problem after races. There's a sort of post-race limbo where you're able to (and in most cases, need to) keep driving after you hit the finish line, but before the HUD and associated options load back up, and if you happen to crash during this interval, the game will let you shake it off and keep driving before finally registering the crash - and stopping you dead in your tracks - when the HUD returns several seconds later. It's not a huge issue, but it's jarring and feels glitchy nonetheless.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted U also features a unique online multiplayer mode that maintains the open-world ethos of the singleplayer. Instead of waiting in lobbies or jumping into single races, you'll join an online version of Fairhaven populated by up to five other drivers, and play through sets of challenges ranging from team races to long-jump contests, speed runs to circuit races. True to the spirit of the game, getting there is half the fun - you'll need to watch your mini-map to see where the next event starts, and racing to be the first player at the meet-up spot is a fun and frantic challenge on its own. We had no trouble with lag or dropped connections in our time online, and voice chat worked quite well using the GamePad's built-in microphone and speakers. The only issue we had with online play was that it doesn't seem possible to skip over music tracks in this mode - an odd restriction. And as fun as the online component is, it's disappointing that there's no local multiplayer option whatsoever; it would have been a blast to tear around Fairhaven with one player on the GamePad and the other on the TV.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted U delivers on every level. It's fast, fun, and absolutely beautiful, with an open-world design that creates a real feeling of freedom to go with the sense of speed. There's a staggering amount of content, with races to run, cars to find and mods to unlock, and the unique online multiplayer adds heaps of replay value. This is also a perfect example of a port done right - the graphical upgrades and GamePad-specific features make this the definitive console version. Racing fans, make room at the top of that most wanted list.
Damn, thats me out. When I saw that this game was two player thats what I imagined it to be. Even a split screen would have been awesome. I really wanted to buy this game. I need more Wii U games and am quite happy to support 3rd party games and this looked like the one to get. No local multiplayer though stops me from buying though. I'm so dissapointed.
The original NFS: Most Wanted was my favorite in the series. It combined tight car handling with epic police chases and an immersive storyline that develops as you complete races and unlock cars to progress up the most wanted list. This game doesn't even deserve to be called a cheap knockoff of the original. If it had gone straight to the $10 bargain bin I still would have rated it "Buyer Beware."
People used to resort to WiiScrubber (Wii) and GCM Utility (GC) to scrub/trim games to end up with dumps that while they had no immediate size change, their randomized garbage data (like "dummy", "padding" or "znull") was still there but zeroed out making archived dumps using zip/7zip/rar formats have stunning gains (from 1.4GB uncompressed to 26MB zipped for Animal Crossing for example!). Of course, the file still needed to be uncompressed to its full size everytime you wanted to play it.
The gameplay maintains the traditional elements of previous Mario Kart games, mostly from the two recent installments on the Wii and Nintendo 3DS respectively. Players pick a character of three weight classes and drive vehicles of varying stats, strengths, and weaknesses around an obstacle course-like racetrack, in an attempt to finish first of the twelve racers, the number of racers used in Mario Kart Wii. During the race, racers can pick up items from Item Boxes, where the probability of receiving items is dependent on the racers' distance from the frontrunner; for example, first place typically receives defense items such as Bananas and Green Shells, while racers at intermediate distance from the lead receive more powerful offense items such as Triple Red Shells and Fire Flowers and racers far from the lead receive items that lead to an increase in speed or the possibility of going off-road without losing speed, such as the Super Star or Bullet Bill, to help compensate their distance. Players receive an amount of points depending on the position they end up with. Whichever player has the most amount of points wins the entire race.
Mario Kart TV is an Internet-based feature in which players can view and share highlights of their and others' race and battle highlights. In the Mario Kart TV menu, the game automatically saves the twelve most recent race and battle replays, and the player can favorite up to six at one time. Players can view and edit theirs and others' replays by changing the duration of the replay and the focus characters and actions and can slow down, speed up, and rewind the replay while watching. Players could also share their highlights on Miiverse and YouTube; only up to 60 seconds of video could be uploaded at one time, however.
Among the differences discovered so far, the most important are the speed, which is 150% the speed of the 150cc engine class (for comparison, the speed of the 50cc and 100cc engine classes are respectively 80% and 90% of the speed of the 150cc engine class) and causes acceleration to change every time the acceleration statistics changes, and a new braking technique, triggered only when braking while drifting: orange sparks come out of the driving wheels that start rotating at a low speed, a braking sound can be heard and the deceleration is slower, allowing tighter turns without necessarily losing the Mini-Turbo charge. Furthermore, in this engine class the Star item significantly increases both acceleration and maximum speed, unlike in 150cc where maximum speed is mostly unaffected. 041b061a72
