Need for Speed Most Wanted Wii U release date set

Postby Drusus » 17 Jan 2013, 16:57

Having played the Wii U a decent amount this weekend a I think this is the direction it would be best taking. It has a real opportunity to be a party console, the one you drag out when you have your mates round. For me it's the Dreamcast and in many ways the setup they have on the Wii U is very similar.

I was overall disappointed with the Wii U, the games on offer so far and the very small and slow package of features of it's UI, I've never seen a slower menu screen. It has such a huge amount of potential as something fun though. It really does, I hope it doesn't become a console just for Nintendo exclusives, I think if more games come out utilising the main pad as a sort of party control for 4 other players like this it could be a real draw at gatherings.

Agreed! They should have followed in the Wii's footsteps, rather than try and win some hardcore audience. I will never buy one, but as you said, its fun over your mates for a few party games.

I'll stick to the PSV version.
These features are all well and good, but when it comes to it, I'm more impressed that the game runs as good as the console version on the PSV. The lack of the Ultimate Speed Pack on the handheld is a bit of a downer, but nothing major.

That was a great, down to Earth comment. And I think a lot of gamers (who actually own the console) would agree with you.

Everybody else is basing their opinions on hearsay, therefore invalidating them.

i like the idea of being able to help a driver using the gamepad. my lil lad loves playing the nfs games but struggles with the pursuits. being able to help him out would be great and help him enjoy it more. quite a useful feature for helping younger ones to get used to the games

Electronic Arts and a consumers idea of 'enhancement' very much differ.
