In the upcoming Need for Speed: Most Wanted, everything you do—from racing and ditching the cops to simply exploring—earns you speed points and increases your speed level.
But as you move up the ranks, you may attract some unwanted attention. When the best of the best come after you, you'll have to take them down one by one to make it to the top. Then you'll be the most wanted racer in Fairhaven.
This sounds like a pretty neat feature to tie the leveling into the story and give you even more to do. What do you think?
