Continuing the story-based, open-world approach of the Underground games, Most Wanted — a launch title for the Xbox 360 — added several interesting new types of gameplay to the Need for Speed universe. Your car now had a “Rap Sheet”, keeping track of the coolest, most dangerous moves and memorable police chances that you pulled off while in the driver’s seat.Being chased by cops was a little different in Most Wanted, as a “heat” system determined how much force the police used in trying to capture you. Depending on your heat level, different types of police vehicles were chasing you — ranging from unmarked SUVs to Pontiac GTOs. Roadblocks, spike strips, and police helicopters made evading capture more difficult, not to mention the Corvette-driving cop, Sergeant Cross, who would stop at nothing to take you down. If you got busted too many times, you had to pay to get your car out of the impound lot.
