A Look at Co-Op in Need For Speed: Most Wanted on the Wii U

It wasn't long ago we learned that the Wii U was getting a special version of Need for Speed Most Wanted, complete with a local co-op mode.  I recently went hands on with the game and checked out just how the co-op works, and while it's not a "true" co-op mode in the sense there are separate players working together for some sort of common progression, what is there is a family friendly way to play together.

Need For Speed Most Wanted on WiiU Will Have Local Co-Op

One of my favorite co-op games in the past few years was Criterion's Burnout Paradise. I'm really not into the whole racing sim genre, but that game was crazy and fun. Particularly when you played co-op. Unfortunately, Criterion's next couple of big release games, this time in the Need for Speed series, didn't offer up any of that same co-op fun. Criterion seems to be remedying that, to a degree, with the WiiU release of Need for Speed Most Wantedwhich will include a two-player local co-op mode.

Beyond Co-Op Reviews - February 2012

It's a new year and a new format for our Beyond Co-Op series of non co-op reviews.  The staff has started to post their reviews over in our Blogs section, giving them a little more freedom to write up a review for all the other games we play.  We've also tweaked our scoring to match those of our co-op games, but without a score for co-op.  We simply use the Overall Score scale.
