Racing games are loved by all – especially the arcade ones, which do not require you to learn precise controls. There are number of such games on PC but most of them require a high end gaming rig and costs a lot. Smartphone games have become cheap and visually attractive as desktop counterparts.

If you have already played the original version, you may still want to play it to take a trip down memory lane. Let us look at the game and how to get it up and running on a PC.

NFS: Most Wanted – The Game:
The game features the same iconic cars and Rockport city from the original PC version of 2005. However, the free roam mode of the original no longer exists. Instead you will get races and boss fights as races. In order to win the game, you will need to defeat 10 street racers. To proceed to compete with them, you will need to win certain events. The game has a total of 35 cars to enjoy from. You can customize your ride for a race but different customizations are only allowed, out of which one is a paint job. The other 2 will not persist and you will need to sell out in-game currency to purchase them again. This can be avoided if you restart the race before completing it. As usual your opponents will not only try to outrun you, but also will try their best to damage your ride. Your ride can only be visually damaged without affecting performance. Cops are present as well and will increase in strength as your bounty increases. They can even employ spike strips to put you down but this will only slow you down and are not fatal like the original game. The visuals are great considering it as a mobile game and the sound effects are to the pitch. Engine sound is unusually ramped down however. Roads were mostly seem wet but are not actually. Almost all vehicles handle identical to the muscle cars, being lethargic at turns. The events include one-on-one races, lap races, checkpoint races and ones where you need to limit the damage. With such great features it is time to look at how you will get it up and running on your PC.
