The Most Wanted demo starts players behind the wheel of one of the game’s most recognisable, rides: the Aston Martin V12 Vantage. Players can also jack into three additional cars placed in different areas of Fairhaven– the Porsche 911 Carrera S, the Audi R8 GT Spyder and the Ford Focus RS500 – if you can find it, you can drive it. Each vehicle has its own unique races, challenges and mods to unlock.For more on the latest title in the long running Need for Speed series, you can check out our recent review, or race by the game page for more.

It’s hard to recommend Most Wanted to those who prefer to race offline, as the sterile event structure isn’t enough to keep players driving after the thrill of exploring the city wears off. It’s a much more enjoyable game online though, provided you don’t mind getting rammed every 30 seconds. The multiplayer racing is fast and filthy, where you’ll be rewarded for crashing into every opponent more so than taking a clean line.Check out the full review for more.

"So to us it’s just about taking it further," he enthuses. "We always said each game is a reflection of who we are at the time, and this game, Most Wanted, reflects who we are, probably more than anything else: which is social, connected, and everything a game needs to be in 2012. Like I said, we just need to change it up really; that’s what we’ve got to do.
"I believe that in 2012, a game’s got to be very connected, they’ve got to have friends at the heart of the game. I’ve got to be able to do whatever I want, whenever I want to do it. So obviously, Paradise was a great stepping-stone from there. We like a bit of revolution; we like to turn things on its head. We did it with Burnout, and now we’re doing it with Need for Speed."
We also talk about car physics, the team's design freedom, using real-life cars, the potential for getting Australian Ford and Holden muscle cars into the game and Terminator 2 (as well as much more).
