Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit


Taking the series back to its roots. The Need for Speed franchise has seen more ups and downs than a thrilling roller coaster ride. The fabled EA series has been...

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit Review for the XBOX360


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


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


It's been a long time since we've seen original product from Criterion Games. Sure, it's provided a swell amount of downloadable content for Burnout Paradise (including an island expansion and several vehicles), but we're talking about a brand new...

While the visuals aren’t running at the same blazing 60 frames per second speed that Burnout Paradise runs at, there’s no question that Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit looks wonderful. The car models are fantastic, especially the higher-end cop cars that...

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit


I was in a large branded supermarket – whose name shall not be uttered – the other day, browsing the electrical section – you know, testing my willpower and what not. It was then when I noticed a small young child wandering aimlessly around the aisles....

After countless sacrilegious efforts in the Need For Speed franchise, Criterion has finally done the label some justice by bringing the heart back to the franchise. It looks like that Criterion did lose their way ever so slightly at times, losing what...

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Review


A raw, unadulterated thrill factory.

Killer online component; patently magnificent presentation; old-school-meets-new formula is money

Precious little customization; A.I. drivers feel too canned

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit is all about the thrill. Whether you're immersed in a tense, low-speed cat and mouse standoff, praying you don't nail a spike strip at 200 MPH, or simply drinking in the carnage you hath wrought, you'll find little else like...

Need for Speed: Shift


Need For Speed: Shift completely changes NFS gameplay. Does this racing sim compete?
