Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Police chase movie

A superb game, picked this up on Friday and haven't put it down. Playing on line is just a ridiculous amount of fun too.

It was a toss up between this and the ho-rahing, DIRT aping Forza Horizon and I'm glad I picked this, it's by far the better driving game.

Disappointed at the lack of individual road times a la burnout paradise. Good fun though.

I'm enjoying Horizon far more.

I find Most Wanted frustrating as hell. The Outrun the Cops missions are a bloody nightmare. And I have a tendency to crash into bloody everything, with the awful handling model.

Having said that, online is very well put together. Being able to create your own event style playlists mid free roam is genius.

It is very tough, even the individual car challenges are hard. Racing the most wanted cars, even in vastly superior sports cars is bastard hard too - which makes it all the sweeter when you get to smash them off the road to keep!

I'll probably pick up Forza as well at some point, but this will keep me going until Hitman comes out, that's for sure!

Which version is this on?
If it's a console version, it looks as though the traffic is the same across all versions.
I try and keep the pursuit going for as long as I can, and have managed more than six.
