NFSMW XBOX 360 review

Postby Skyline_man » 13 Nov 2005, 18:21

Totalgames.net reviewed the XBOX 360 version of NFSMW giving it 78/100.

If you have a real need for speed then the only place you'll find it here is on the box, but on every other level Most Wanted is still an accomplished and entertaining racer. It does look and feel like a game that is finding its feet on the 360.

Read the whole review here.

Wow, that was harsh!! Why is the guy comparing MW with PGR3 - they're different genres! That's like comparing F-ZERO with the GT series.

78/100 = 7,8/10

7,8/10 = 8/10

8/10 = Very Good

Wow, today I played MW on Xbox 360. AWESOME GRAPHICS! Damn, it's beautiful. The PS2 version was prettug ugly btw. Very pixalized etc. I think's its right to compare it to PGR3, because they both come on the same platform. Personally, I think PGR3 is muuch better. Even better graphics! But the 7,8 is right, I think the game is not good. PGR3 all the way

(BTW, I played the 2 complete games, so I've got something to base my opinion on :P)

Hey guys, snap snap. Here's something to consider. Have you guys ever noticed that NFS Most Wanted is a CURRENT GENERATION game, and Gotham 3 is a NEXT GENERATION game?

Smart thinking, guys.

Last time I went to Romania (July 2005), I didn't even see PS2/Xbox, good luck finding X360. It will be hard to find it here in Canada. (Even though I think X360 is garbage, I know it will be a hit until the people who dumped 600 bucks realize it is garbage)

EDIT:
So the basic X360 is 400 CDN, which is 10,410,000 ROL (1041 RON)
The bundle with the HDTV stuff is 500 CDN, which is 13,000,000 ROL (1300 RON)
And since it's Romania and stuff from outside the country coming in are more expensive, expect the basic one to be 1500 RON and the bundle one close to 2000 RON.

Sweet romanian people, welll i'm bulgarian and ive been there its pretty cool...anyway Asif "If you have the need for speed you'll only get it on the box* seriosly get ******* a PC will always out do a console, and next week i'm gettin a Driving Force Pro (with right drivers BOOM works on comp on my HD 1080i TV) beat that Xbox!

And personally dont expect so much from the next gen, the graphics would be something like triple 7800GTX's and will get outdated in probably 5 months :roll:

It doesnt matter what the reviews say. If you like the game, you will buy it. I am preferably getting MW for the PC and Xbox 360 next month. 8)

The point of a review is to see if it's better or worse than other offerings, quite frankly NFSMW's pretty boring when you're not in a police chase. It doesn't do the best job it could as an arcade racer, the engine hasn't changed since NFSU. It'l get compared to the games coming out for Xbox 360 and others because, oh snapple, that's when it's coming out.

I know..but as some guy said after me..that Most Wanted is for the current generation console..so I guess it is ok for the review to critise it being average for a next gen console. Neverless, EA just wants to make money thats why they cant be arsed to make more improvemtns for the XBOX 360 version.. :?

NFS MW is a hard game come compare, I don't know any racing game that is mainly based on police chases.
yeah maybe the GFX you can compare but you can't compare in terms of gameplay or handling with games like Forza or PGR for the 360.
and even with the GFX you can't really compare it, why? the NFS series always had a diffirent view on the world, the game world is made to create a feeling, not just to make it super realistic. They made MW in a fall scenery and kinda grey to create a certain feeling, style.

I doubt some people even know how much computing power a huge city with all it's details needs.
EA did put more effort in the 360 version, it is even slightly better then a maxxed out PC version. wich is already pretty damn impressive if you see the lightning effects and small details on seperate stuff laying around on the ground (garbage, shoppingkartsyou name it) all details that are left behind on the current gen consoles (atleast what I know from the PS2 version)

a game like forza and if I am not mistaken PGR also is a fixed track racing game.
so they only have to create details for the part on and directly around the tracks and nothing more, not a miles wide world. so they can put all the details and special gfx on a fairly small world.
and don't forget that added AI like alot of cops (there are even more cops chasing you in the 360 version at 1 given time) and the competition and traffic. you can see that pretty clearly in the FPS on the PC version for most PCs the framerate will drop like 10 fps if there are alot of cops chasing you

Didnt happen to me. The only time FPS dropped was when the scene transefered to a different section of the city. Cops were never a problem on the CPU.

WOW man hold on... Most wanted is supposed to get at least an 8.5 ...
8 is kind of good for some games, but for MW, hehe, no way its a 78%

MW has the cops bak, cool cars, n all tha other stuff.... NO WAY A 78%

I agree with most of what stig said, about the cops, i'm playin at practically max @800x600 and cops dun dro my fps, i do have fps drops but its not cuz of cops and it drops to like low 20s.

Anyway that review did sound a bit biased. I think interms of gameplay EA achieved what they aimed for and i like it, the quick races got boring obviously if u only have a option of 3 demo races, cop chases are cool though especially when driving in manual(more challenge when end having to stop and move off again).

The bullet time effect is radically nice, motion blurr effect is decent as far as i'm concerned on the pc and to think xbox360 has better graphics(must be amazing).

When i drove outta that autbahn, the sun light almost blinded me, sum real superb lighting effects(HDR technology i guess)

i think EA wants to make their games for every single platform out ther RIGHT now..and it seems to be the case..unless I'm mistaken..and the majority of these consoles is the current gen while only XOB 360 is the next gen.

Well i think xbox 360 has a lil edge over pc in the graphics department.

In the end though it all comes down to the fact that nfsmw will make mills
