As much as I yearn for split-screen multiplayer in my arcade racers again, Need for Speed: Most Wanted is making a pretty solid case for sticking with online-only multiplayer. Criterion really souped this title up with some seriously Burnout Paradise-esque gameplay challenges and modes, especially in the multiplayer aspects of the game.
One thing that really stood out for me is how you can swap cars, mods and paint jobs on the fly. I would assume the same is true in the single-player portion of the game, but that is pretty cool. There are also many challenges throughout single- and multiplayer modes to earn you cool stuff, like license plates that show off your feats (the one shown in the video requiring you to land on top of your opponent and take them out is pretty hot).
Need for Speed: Most Wanted hits store shelves on every platform imaginable on October 30th.
