need_for_speed_most_wanted_cover_art

EA has confirmed that Need for Speed Most Wanted will be released on Wii U on March 19th in the US and Friday March 21st across Europe. EA says there’s three new features that set this game apart from the already cheap Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions. The first feature is you can play the game entirely on the Wii U GamePad. The second feature is the ability to a play a new co-op mode where tablet players can mess with an interactive map “to provide control and navigation assistance”. The third feature allows you to use the touchscreen to unlock new items, and switch and mod cars without pausing the game.

  1. Man, what a wannabe tough manly video game. That is all the Wii U has in its tiny and crappy library anyway. This makes me laugh.

  2. I am so excited for this game. I traded in my xbox for a wiiu no regrets so far! I love the need for speed series and I am glad the wiiu gets the game with so many more additional features than the xbox or ps3 versions. You would have to be an idiot to buy this game on any other console.

        1. I duno, feels like a driving game.
          The controls are fine, they work how they should, cars control not a tight as id like but its not bad, and its pretty fast.

          The problem is just what you do in the game.
          You pick up cars by finding them in the world, which is good, it encourages exploration, and theres the billboard and secret areas to find to which is good.
          But each car has 5 races, and thats it. Its not like Burnout Paradise which is immensely superior, where theres a race on every traffic light, and you can use either any car you want, or any car of a certain boost class.
          But once you do the 5 races, theres nothing to do but drive around, unless you go online, which is still good.

          But my other problem is just the city you’re in. It just feel generic.
          Its just the city, and the cliffs out side, and some of the cars and lack of motorcycles arent even worth driving.
          Paradise had much better design, on top of its more unrealistic approach.

          Also the soundtrack is shit, and you cant play your own instead.

          1. Also, the fucking navigation is HORRIBLE, which was a problem in Burnout Paradise which i HOPED they fixed, but nope, its actually worse.

            Theres no arrow marker, no custom waypoint, nothing.
            Just a tiny mini map that you constantly have to look at, which takes your eyes off the road, and inevitably crash into the copious amounts of traffic (although it seems to have been reduced a little), but you still crash from the smallest bump sometimes.

            Id give it a 6/10

              1. I just dont want to look at the mini map every 5 seconds to make sure im going to right way.

                I actually couldnt even be bothered finishing this game, and I’m someone who got a Platinum Trophy in Burnout Paradise, which is basically the same game, but good.

          2. Hmmm Sounds good but flawed. I will still give it a shot as it’s the first proper racing game to come to wiiu and to give credit to EA Fifa and Mass effect run perfectly on wiiu (albeit with controversial content choices in each game) so I imagine something similar for NFS.

            Sounds good enough the way you’re putting it. And the media gave it decent reception so I will pick it up , unless it comes out horrible on wiiu which is very unlikely to happen. It’s probably just the xbox 360 code running fine on wiiu with a few exclusive features.

  3. Everyone thought the Wii U was doomed because it didn’t have any games. Then Nintendo announced That 10 BIG games is comming out between February and April.

      1. You guys make me sick. Unless you are all under twelve years old. Supporting a company that releases under powered consoles and the same games over and over again. Maybe I should put a dead cat in a cardboard box and write Nintendo on it so you all can be amazed at how fast and advanced it is. Maybe replace the dead cat with a dead bird and write mario on it. Maybe then you will all get a disease and stop buying nintendo’s rip off products. At least Sony and Microsoft try to make good games.

            5. How is the Wii U really doing? You can judge for yourself. In the U.S., in their respective launch years, this is how each of the last four major consoles sold, from November launch through the end of the December reporting period, according to NPD: Xbox 360: about 600K
              PS3: nearly 700K
              Wii: 1.08M
              Wii U: 890K ^Source: Kotaku.com

Am beginning to think it’s not nintendo that is the problem, but third parties lacking vision. Add two player co-op and nintendo and gaming fans will lap this like fresh milk :).

    1. In a way I’m happy for them. Yes it is a port and is obviously late to the game, but I can’t help being satisfied seeing Nintendo expanding their library. Afterall, they did advertise this console as a way to close the gap with 3rd party support. The more ports we get, the more apt the console will be successful in getting the biggest names involved with developing some great games.

      I’m especially happy with this quarter’s line-up and the enthusiasic support we have from Ubisoft and indies. Baby steps and we’ll have an exciting and formidable library for a wide demographic.

Well they’ll have to take bigger baby steps, the fact PS4 & 720 (or at least one of them) is rumoured to be announced this year … another Wii could happen with little 3rd party support :/ Which I don’t want to happen because I tried the Wii U, and it was pretty cool, I don’t want it to fail.
