Over the Limit: Tips To Getting Ahead In Need For Speed: Mos

Postby xuankienkt » 26 Dec 2014, 09:46

After months of anticipation, we're happy to report that Burnout Paradise II…er, I mean Need For Speed: Most Wanted has finally hit stores. It does have a number of comparisons to the 2008 racing classic, including the ability to run all over the city of Fairhaven to answer a number of challenges while picking up a variety of cars. There's very few limitations to what you can do on the open road.

We know some of you don't fully realize just what kind of potential this game holds, as you may not have played Burnout Paradise or just lost interest in Need For Speed following last year's The Run. So we've invested a few hours of "research" (i.e. plowing our buddies into the corner and taking first place victories) to come up with some opening tips for when you first dive into Criterion Games' driving world.

So heed our advice well and we'll see you on the open road. (We're the ones outrunning the police at a rapid pace…)

Be Aggressive, B-E Aggressive

In Most Wanted, it helps to be a bit aggressive. Criterion did a wonderful job balancing the AI so that it's competitive during events but not to the point where they'll continuously dominate and rob you of a first place victory. You'll have to find openings necessary to jet ahead, either using a turbo boost filled up after drifts and driving in oncoming traffic or from someone's unfortunate crash on the road.

It helps to show some aggression: like Burnout Paradise (and the other Burnout games before it, starting with Takedown on PS2 and Xbox) you're rewarded for crashing other drivers. Plowing them into girders, walls and other objects actually nets you some helpful boost power, which lets you keep your lead when you're running neck-and-neck against someone else. What's more, rubbing someone from behind with boost gives you the vital speed needed to throw them off. (This is also quite useful in multiplayer. Beware that what goes around comes around – those crashed racers will be looking for you.)

Busting Through Speed Traps

The game also encourages you to show your competitive side against the police. You wouldn't (or shouldn't) do these things in real life, but in Fairhaven the goal of the game is to be king of the road, even towering over the local police force. Ramming cops into walls and breaking through road blocks is just part of the fun. You don't want to be too straightforward in your assault on road blocks, because sometimes you'll have to contend with spike strips. Hit one too hard and you'll lose speed as your tires grind down. You won't stop completely, but you will lose the advantage against competitors.
