I'm pleased to say that Criterion put that extra effort into Most Wanted and got the game looking more on par with the PC version, then the other console versions. The city landscape which you drive around is huge and there are lots of different things to find and do. In the main game the list is as follows:

1. Events = 61
2. Most Wanted Cars for you to beat and take-down = 10
3. Number of car to find and drive = 41
3. Jack Spots = 123
4. Billboards to be smashed = 156
5. Speed cameras to be triggered = 66
6. Secuity gates to be smashed = 135

Also with the Wii U ultimate speed pack there is a extra 5 cars to be found, 25 additional challenges and 70 more milestones. There is one more most wanted car for you to defeat too. The game can be played in full on the Wii U Gamepad which is always a bonus, if someone wants to watch the tv when you are a middle of a race etc.
Most Wanted plays similar to the amazing Burnout series which were by Criterion as well. The handling of the cars took a bit of getting use to with the Gamepad and for when things get to tough the traffic can be switched off. The speed of this game is very impressive, especially when you use the nitro.
There is a strange Co-Driver mode, where two people control the same car using different controllers. The online multiplayer is great fun and works well. If you have Miiverse friends that own this game as well, then you can see their times for each event and overall score etc. This makes the game very competitive as you get updates when someone beats your time. For all you Mario fans, keep an eye out for the large green pipes ;-)
Overall this is the best one player racing game on the Wii U at the moment. If you want offline multiplayer racing game with your friends and family, then try Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed: Limited Edition which is great fun as well.
