After the release of the first game the developers almost every year make the players happy with a new series. A total of 23 parts have been released. Initially, before the Underground series release, the story was based on the races on picturesque and beautiful tracks and chases with cops. The developers decided to change this by making the game more interesting.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted
The authors added a number of new features: the day was replaced by the night, the fragments of comics were added – clips with live actors and an interesting storyline.

The Most Wanted series is a true compilation of all the successful parts in the twelve years of the game’s existence.

This can also happen to an opponent, which is considered an automatic win.
In this part the districts appear that have to be captured. A mode “Teams” is also added, which makes it possible to hire racers in the player’s team. Each has its own specialization, which is activated after giving orders. One can block opponents, another can find a shortcut on the track, etc.
