The Need For Speed team has been busy showing off Need For Speed: Most Wanted for a few months now, particularly the multiplayer aspect.

Now, they're turning their attention to the game's single-player mode. This quick overview shows off Fairhaven City, Most Wanted's setting, and also details how some of the mechanics that can make a player the most wanted (hint: go fast! no, faster!) will work.

In the true 2012 spirit, even the single-player game is in many ways just an asynchronous multiplayer. But smashing through a billboard with your friend on it, as you break their record, kind of does look really satisfying.
