The open-world action in Need for Speed™ Most Wanted gives you the freedom to drive your way. Hit jumps and shortcuts, switch cars, lie low, or head for terrain that plays to your vehicle’s unique strengths. Fight your way past cops and rivals using skill, high-end car tech, and tons of nitrous. It’s all about you, your friends, and a wild selection of cars. Let’s see what you can do.
NFS Most Wanted 2012 has a lot of different categories to speedrun, so you can expect to use different strategies depending on what you're running.
Since almost all of the cars are spread throughout Fairhaven, and each one having a unique set of races, most of the time you'll stick to one car, and maybe a switch here and there.
Unlike the other Need For Speed that is on Speedrun Academy (at the time of writing), The Run, this game does not have much of (if any) story to follow, and it's very open-world/freeroam.
