- this review is the best part about this game
To start off this review I'm just going to say this if you want to play nfs most wanted, do it on a home console, here's why.
the graphics here are a mixed bag for me.
while they are in no way good looking I do have to admire the power they are squeezing out of the gba. However while I do admire the tech side of getting 3d on gba, it just doesn't work here. The game looks like a ps1 game in the alpha stage. The textures are bad, the sceans repeat them self's over and over. Not to mention there is just nothing interesting to look at. Every thing is grey, green, or blue. What they should of done is do a 2d racer in a snes Mario kart way. Not true 3d but still have a sense of depth and looked good for its time.
the sound in this game is trash. Most of the time all you get is a basic beat with an annoying 16bit "music" loop. Don't get me wrong, music in the 16bit era could be awesome. Look at Mario, sonic, and yoshis island as prime examples. This game just recycles the same 5 seconds of boring muzak over and over and over until I wanted to stick my ear in a fire ant mound.
addictiveness....realLy do I have to answer this one....fine. If your playing this on a gba and want just a quick race on the go it may serve a purpose to play there, but if your playing this as a Rom on a pc, there are simply better games on this site to play.
most importantly is the game play well to say the least it was easy enough to drive the car and each one does feel different, but the controls over all are just to loose. id try to make a minor coarse correction by just tapping on the arrow key and I found that half the time it would send me in to the wall. Bad controls aside it's just not fun to drive in this game.
over all this game get a 3 from me for the above stated reason's and while it's not action 52 bad this one still stinks

3 - Not the Best - myuntoldfunstory
Could Be A lot BetterFirst off I rate this game a 3 Why? Most of it is because the game is at most in an incomplete stage as you can see first starting the game NFS was mostly marketed to only 4 countries.GRAPHICSThe graphics were horrible my dinosaur of a cell phone (circa 2006) has better racing games with better graphics than this I dint know if they were aiming for a 3D type affect but it didn't work out most of the tracks use the same background over and over again not to mention the car having a "ripple effect" whenever you turn.SOUNDThe sound and/or music is one of the worst of all GBA games its as if they took a 6 year old and asked him to play a loud annoying song on his xylophone I mean all the music is a simple beat along with annoying chatter looping every 10 or 20 seconds .ADDICTIVENESS I must admit at first the game was pretty addicting but over time it just gets old and boring I mean after completing race after race of pretty much the same track it gets boring then when you finally get enough credits for a new car you find out its exactly the same as the other one it just goes a little faster and exccelerates a little faster.STORYI was very disappointed to find out that there was no story for people that have played the console version they know it and have no problem but with people that have never played the console game they wouldn't know and it makes no sense.DEPTH The only reason I gave this game an 8 in depth is because the game carries on and on and on with the same tracks just to beat everyone to number 1 on the blacklist and it truly does take forever.DIFFICULTYThe game can get pretty difficult mostly because every 5 minuets or so the game starts flashing and freezing and screws up you whole game plus the fact if you bump a car you are sent flying into a wall or if you try to steer a little your sent crashing to a wall.
