    we rented NFS most wanted for the ps2 today.. and our review result: dont buy.... yeah this is serious the bugs aren't "it has graphic glitches" it is more like "crashes completly" and not during some weird things ...

    no it's in the car selection menu

    we started up and imediatly went in split screen mode.. my friend scrolled through the cars "lexus, fiat, chevrolet, vw gti, audi TT... oh well this one is already locked, audi A3...why doesn't the car appear" me "looks like long loading times" "ok lets look at the next one" (music stops playing) "doesn't apear either" "crap looks like it's not responding any more" "perhaps the disk is scratched"

    check the disc (which looked brand new) and retryed it: BLAM crash again .. then we did some racing with the first 4 cars and then did some single player....and then in single player car selection: BLAm crash again ...

    in fact after more than 7 crashes within 2 hours we're pretty sure it's a bug: go beyond the audi tt and it crashes...always

    we did some racing wih the slower cars and it was ok besides the crappy textures on the ps2 version but seriously: save yourself a few bucks and don't buy it

    Sounds like it could have been a hidden problem with your particular DVD instead of the game itself, but it's probably a good idea to wait and see if this appears to effect most of the PAL versions produced.

    luckily we rented the game ;)

    well we thought about that scratches but the underside was perfectly fine so it's either a broken ps2 (which my friend, the owner , disputed) or a compability issue but it's a mid cicle ps2

    I bought the GameCube version of this game a couple of days back when I fired it up it looked like I was playing a PlayStation (and I mean 1 not 2) game. Talk about crap! It was so bad I returned it and pre-ordered an Xbox 360. Woo hoo 3 months until it turns up, go Australia!
