Need For Speed Hot Pursuit


I have previously never played a Need For Speed game. I didn't really know about the array of muscle cars, nor about the selection of the worlds fastest, and needless to say most expensive cars. I had no, or at very least little, idea of how good the...

Online races are great ; Freedrive is awesome ; Graphics are fantastic

I will never be able to afford the least of the cars presented ; Only 8 racers online

The online segment is pretty good too. Race up to seven people in a number of different types of matches. My biggest gripe came when my own team in Hot Pursuit mode hit me with spike strips and an EMP within about thirty seconds of each other. So be...

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (360)


I mentioned when I reviewed Split/Second that I am not  a major fan of racing games. I definitely approach most of them with a "wait and see" attitude, and if the game is being described as a racing sim, I just flat out avoid it. The only ones I tend...

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit (X360) Review


The cops and street racers of Seacrest County play a dangerous game of cat 'n' mouse in the world's most expensive and exotic cars.

Not all racing games are alike, and Criterion Studios has always emphasized this idea with the Burnout series, in which racing takes a backseat to wanton vehicular destruction. That sensibility works perfectly in Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, a...

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit


Remember when Need for Speed was about racing down the open road in an open-top exotic whilst evading the police rather than who has the most tasteless body kit? Of course you don't, because the last half a decade or so has seen the once unbeatable...

This is the Need for Speed I've been waiting for. With its electrifying blend of raw speed, intense pursuits, wince worthy crashes and revolutionary Autolog system, Hot Pursuit is an adrenaline-fueled rush that?s a sure contender for racing game of the...

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit


I had two big concerns when I heard Criterion was developing the next Need for Speed game. My first was that this game would end up being Burnout

It’s without question that Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is one of the, if not the most enjoyable racing games of 2010. When you look at just the quality of the experience and match that up with how much replay value Hot Pursuit has this is a no brainer...

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit Review for the PS3


Don't chase me, bro.

Hunt down racers as a cop; Escape destruction as a racer; Seacrest County is pretty...; ...and all the cars are too; Online Hot Pursuit is sublime chaos

Oddly frustrating control issues

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Review


Electronic Arts helps bail out the automotive industry

sexy graphics and sexy marketing copy

lack of gameplay, lack of driving physics, blatant car ads, Autolog nags

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit


Fans of street racing driving games might be forgiven for finding something awfully familiar about Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit's feel. With Criterion now in charge, there is a definite Burnout style bouquet to the game series which has illegal racers...

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit


Picking out a racing game is sort of like ordering a pizza. Do you want a high-speed realistic title heavy on the realism? How about a fun and lightweight kart racer, light on the realism? Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is sort of like the cheese pizza of...

There's also a ton of cool cheats like the ability to drain an opponent's nitro and add spikes. Come on, you're already running from the cops, what's a bit of cheating right?

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Review


This fast-paced racer keeps you glued to the TV and on the edge of your seat regardless of which side of the law you're playing on.

Exhilarating races and cop chases ; Autolog system makes competing with friends more compelling ; Tight controls make it easy to take corners at high speed ; Loads of licensed supercars ; Great online options

Camera cuts occasionally mess with your driving ; No traditional leaderboards

Predictably, though AI opponents do a great job of keeping things interesting, they're still no substitute for other players. Hot Pursuit doesn't support local multiplayer, but its three online modes are so much fun that it can be hard to tear yourself...
