Need For Speed: Most Wanted Wii U UK release date confirmed

Sounds very interesting, looking forward to it as I don't yet have it on another format! Very pleased to hear Criterion are working to the WiiU's capabilities and not just giving a straightforward port. Shows what can be done when developers actually care about the hardware they're working on, now if only all done this...

When I saw this at E3 last year, I thought "This is what the Wii U Gamepad is MADE for!". If it is not clear by now, I really want this game and will be putting in a preorder in 3...2...1... Now!

This use of the Game pad and Wii remote would work very well for a Rally game with one acting as a co driver giving the driver the degrees of the bends etc for the stage they are on. Most Wanted looks like a fun game and looks great on the Wii U, lets hope the frame rate is up to scratch!, might pick this up.

I haven't brought a NFS game since nitro on the wii

I use to love the NFS games but in my opinion they kinda lost their way after carbon. But I'm willing to give this one a chance because it looks pretty decent not to mention the wii u features.

The game pad options look interesting, but you need another person there to take advantage of them. This is not too difficult, but driving the cars is going to be inevitably more exciting, so said other person is going to be fighting you for your controller.

I need something interesting to write here.

Got the Ps3 version and only played it for an hour, but I wouldn't say it's anything to be too excited about. But I've only played it for an hour, so it could get better further in.

I'm on the lookout for a good racing game, I think that's the one genre WiiU has lacked so far.
