Need for Speed: Most Wanted for Android now available


Today is the launch of Need for Speed: Most Wanted for consoles if you haven’t heard, but the game is getting a mobile rendition and it’s come out the same day as the retail version. If you can’t tell, that’s a bit of a treat considering most games tend to take a week or two to get to the Play Store following their bigger console brethren.

That’s right, you can find Need for Speed: Most Wanted in the Google Play Store for download right now. It’ll cost you a $6.99 ticket to play, but what’s promised is intense racing action that not only sees you racing your roadster-sporting friends, but from spike-bearing police, as well.

The game features 35 different cars to choose from, though we imagine a majority of these will need to be unlocked through gameplay. You can also modify your car to make it better, choose between two different control schemes (touch or motion) and more. Most Wanted also features connectivity to Origin so you can check the Wanted list on the go.

You’ll be doing your dirt in vehicles such as the SRT Viper GTS, Porsche 911 Carrera S, Hummer H1 Alpha and more. And the graphics are some of the best you’ll get on mobile, to boot, though we wager you’re going to need a decent phone to ensure the smoothest gameplay experience possible.

This title won’t replace the console excitement for myself and many others, but it looks like a really nice complement to the series and a worthy download if you want to take those daring high-speed chases on the go. The initial download is 12MB in the Play Store, but you’ll want to be on WiFi because there’ll surely be some additional data to be downloaded after it’s done in the Play Store. Get to it here.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Cool ! Ty for the heads-up!

    // Incompatible with the S3….

    /// This one from EA Netherland is –

    1. Not for me, the US link says it’s compatible with my Galaxy S III on AT&T and my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, that Netherland link says it’s not compatible with any of them.

  2. Sounds awesome. At $6.99 though I’ll wait for some reviews first. But I bet it will be good since the last NFS titles have been good.

  3. Where’s the US link ?

      1. Thanks !!

  4. I’ll wait till Christmas sale.
    EDIT: Aaand it’s incompatible with RAZR running ICS.

  5. I remember the original Most Wanted not running on my PC

  6. works on my nexus 7 and S3. but gonna buy the vita and ps3 one instead

  7. Works like a charm on the S3 (Cant wait to try it on my Nexus 10 when I get it ;)
    Smooth and easy driving with tilt-to-steer. Drifting and nitro are fun and also easy to get used to.
    The graphics and rendering are amazing with realistic reflections and lighting.
    Beautifully done!

    1. awesome to hear that, I actually got the game free with tmo’s note 2 so ill check it out!

  8. And why does NFS Most Wanted want to read my contacts? Seriously, WTF!?

    1. it is a social game, you can allow it to look at your contacts, browse your Facebook contacts or a couple of other ways to build your friend list.

    2. Are we still getting confused by that permission in 2012?

  9. I’ll wait until it becomes $0.99 later on.. :)

    1. 25¢

  10. Doesn’t work on HTC One S

  11. I bought it today for my gnex and looks extremely nice and the controls are flawless graphics epic one of the best racing games hands down puts asphalt 7 to shame
