Need for Speed Most Wanted  



Need for Speed Most Wanted demo up on Xbox Live, PSN

Need for Speed Most Wanted demo up on Xbox Live, PSN photo



Having spent countless hours messing around in the wonderful multiplayer component of Burnout Paradise, I'm totally sold on what the studio brought to the table with Need for Speed Most Wanted. Some of you, on the other hand -- particularly long-time NFS fans -- are rightfully skeptical that the game can provide what you want to get from a racing game.

There's now a single-player demo for Most Wanted on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live, should you have an interest in finding out for sure. Access to Downtown and Four Bridges will be given, as will the option to drive the Aston Martin V12 Vantage, the Porsche 911 Carrera S, the Audi R8 GT Spyder, and the Ford Focus RS500 assuming you can find them all.

If you do end up liking what you play enough to grab the full version, up to 50,000 Speed Points earned in the demo can be transferred over.
