What does Everyone think is the best NFS game in the whole series. Personal favourite Is Nitro for the Wii, but I wanted to see what you guys think.

This. Funnest arcade racing game I've ever played. Wish it were available on Steam.

NFS: Porsche 2000/Unleashed was the best one by far.

I liked the Need for Speed: Shift and the new Most Wanted game. Criterion are always reliable for making really great driving games and they didn't disappoint with Most Wanted. I look forward to seeing what they work on next.

I own 12 of the NFS games and my personal favorite is the first Most Wanted. However, the new Hot Pursuit was super fun online.

By far Shift and Shift 2, but unsure if they should be classed as NFS as not arcade. All the other titles seem to be just pointing vehicles in a rough direction with remarkable handling and speed. Yet I did think the snow stage of NFS The Run was good, yet the rest of that game was quite a big let down.

My personal favorite Need For Speed title would have to be Hot Pursuit 2 on the PlayStation 2 (also for PC, GameCube and the original Xbox). The atmosphere the game brought was none other than I had experienced and its stellar soundtrack was another other major factor that complimented its classic-styled gameplay and drew me closer to the action happening on-screen.

Also, if you're looking for a good challenge, this game will test your skill and patience.

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 (PS2)

Still the greatest in my book.

HP2 for PS2 I think was the pinnacle of the series.

Need for Speed: Carbon is pretty much my favorite game of all time. Undercover was alright and Most Wanted 2012 was pretty good too, but I hated the ugly brown/orange color wash that seems to encompass all aspects of the world except the cars (except for the night sequenses in MW2012). Most Wanted 2012 also gets boring really quick once you hit the Number 1 spot on the Blacklist, don't play multiplayer often, and have no DLC available because you're a Vita user.


Carbon has a lot of great cars (of course pre 2007), beautiful colors with all of Palmont City's night lights, and all the epic police chases just not possible on the Own the City releases or Vita MW. My one issue is that once you beat the game there's no real way to get money easily.

Hot Pursuit is definitely my favourite game in the series, but that's simply because I spent countless hours playing it with an old friend.

I would have to say the NFS Underground 1 and 2 as well as the first Most Wanted.
