Gameguru Mania has posted their review of Need For Speed: Most Wanted, giving it an 89%.
"There are several improvements to the gameplay from the last game, NFSU2. First off, NFSMW is much faster and the cars all have a heavier, stickier feel, so you get a bit better feeling when taking the corners at these high speeds. The controlling of cars is a little less smooth compared to NFSU2 so it might take a little getting used to, but it's not bad at all. The actual sensation of speed is well done, one of the main reasons that you will need the Speedbreaker - a slow-motion effect similar to bullet time. The Speedbreaker not only slows things down, but it temporarily enhances your handling, allowing for crazy "thread-the-needle" style maneuvers that would otherwise be impossible. The Nitrous boost is a little different in NFMW - while you race it replenishes."
