Use Your Mouth To Look Around With Need For Speed's Kinect Features

When you begin a game of Need For Speed: Most Wanted, your engine will be off. How do you start it? Well, by saying "engine start".

Free-look also is controlled by voice in the Kinect-supported version of the game, providing a 360-degree spin around the car to show you how far behind the fuzz are and what kind of a pursuit angle they may have. "Drive car," also allows you to switch your ride if you come upon a better one.

This is all done through the game's "EasyDrive" system of spoken menu commands, which also allows for things like chassis and tire modifications on the fly (as in, in the middle of pursuit.)

This should make for one hell of a troll job with your friend or brother in the room. Trying to get away from the law while your pal is hooting "Look around! Look around!" could make for a particularly challenging meta- or drinking game.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted releases on October 30.

    No-one wants these features.

    I do want the features, I don't want to sneeze, crash, say "damnit" and have my setting changed to something stupid.

    The concept is great, the execution is poor and that's on Microsoft. But hey just turn it off if you don't want it.

      lol would you not find that funny just a little :)

    Please just let kinect die already.

      its great for dance games if nothing else

    n4s has been fucking shit since carbon.
    kinects are fucking shit

    this is fucking shit

      This is Criterion making it and it is the Most Wanted name, which was an excellent game back when it came out. I still have my copy on PS2 and a copy on PC somewhere..

    When will they realise gamers don't want to feel stupid when they play games...


    Now if they implemented something similiar to Iron Man's jarvis AI it would be cool to use voice commands.

    You have your orders Criterion.

    $150 well spent!

    God I freaking hate real time menus. What's with these devs thinking this shit is a good idea? If you're playing solo, just pause the fucking game.

      I have to disagree here, for an open world game to be able to tune your car while driving to the next race is awesome, just pull over if don't want to multi-task. Works for everyone.

      Going back to "the garage" to change vehicle sucked.
