Rated 9 out of 10 by Nickham411 If you liked Burnout Paradise you will love this!
Very fun game.. Worth getting for the PS3 or 360.. PC No due to that well racing games just kind of suck on PC's(Save PC for WoW or CoD).
This game has beautiful graphics for each of the cars it has.. It could have more cars but sorry its not GT5 with 1,031 cars.
Hot Pursuit. It is what it is.. A Hot pursuit 90% the time ! This time around even the racers get emp's, spikes the other 3 you find out.. So it makes it more fair between the racer & cop plus a lot more intense..
The Crash's and wrecks are amazing.. if you played Burnout Paradise it's pretty much the same thing just a lot better.. They tried to make it realistic but still a video game. The Multiplayer is getting better & better every week it seems like .. and there has been 3 new Downloadable content packages to buy.. 6 extra cars for free.. Then they also added on more to the NFS Map ! Seem's more is just to come..
Also if you have a PS3 eye camera taking a picture for your license is hilarious ! Custom Soundtrack is another great addition too.
Rated 8 out of 10 by DrBob Good if you have the right computer
This is a fairly good game with some pros and cons. Some of the pros are the racer mode is awesome, especially in hot pursuits. I like that you can work your way to be Seacrest County's most wanted racers. However, this game does take a long time to beat (several months) on either side- cop or racer. The graphics are very good. However, it's kind of cheesy when you get into an accident and all the pieces fly off and they all look the same. Like for example you don't see pieces of tires falling off. I also do not like that you cannot control your car when you go through a roadblock or take out a cop as a racer and bust a racer as a cop. This game is best for gaming computers because it keeps freezing in the middle when used on our laptop. Bottom line - this game is overall a fairly good game and I would recommend it. But unless you have a good gaming computer, you should buy it for the console.

I've been playing Need For Speed all of my life. This entry in the series marks the downfall of the franchise as a whole. Customization, one of the series' trademarks, has been completely eliminated from the game. Criterion basically took Burnout Paradise's driving engine and built a new environment and cars around it. This is possibly the most miserable excuse for a racing game i have ever played. If you truly want a good Need For Speed go grab a PS2 and pick up Underground or Underground 2. Or get Most Wanted or Carbon. If you're looking for a realistic racer you might as well click the back button and get Forza III or Gran Turismo 5, both of which are great buys.
Rated 0 out of 10 by 31stMidget NFS Overall...
I've been playing NFS games since NFS Porsche Unleashed for the PC in the early to mid 90's and I've always been pleased with the franchise. Even though I've switched from the PC to Xbox/Xbox 360, NFS is a "very fine product", especially NFS Most Wanted. To this day I think personally that NFS is the best franchise than Forza, Gran Turismo, and any other racing franchise. I remember when the original NFS Hot Pursuit for the PC came out and was the hit of video games for the PC. I'm very pleased to hear that they're bringing back Hot Pursuit, just re-purposed. Long Live NFS.
P.S. I've played ever single NFS game that came out since NFS Porsche Unleashed.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Guardious Same Development Team For Burnout....
I think this game is getting the shaft and will end up being a top seller. The E3 previews gave this top game pick in racing and more. However, you rarly hear people talking about it. Being the developers Criterion Games that made burnout paradise, I see the same thing happening here that happend with that title. It will be a sleeper hit and everyone will rush to get it after it is released. The multiplayer design alone makes this the racer to get and not to mention the huge fun the cop and racer chases are like. If you don't know, look this up on the web or your favorite review site and do yourself a favor and get it now!
Rated 10 out of 10 by FunkTrain The best one yet
This is in my opinion the best need for speed game yet i love the arcade style of the game but if your buying this for the iconic free roam then DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!! I personally hate the free roam but the missions are awesome. there is no storyline like past games but there are 2 campaigns Racer and Cop so if you like need for speed then buy this game(unless you want a good freeroam.) i would also recomend 1 using a controller cause the keyboard sucks with this game and 2 also buy it at a store if possible because i did and i got the limited edition for the same price.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Kevin4052002 Criterion Revival!
This game stands to put Need For Speed back on its feet and away from all the rice burners and simulations off shoots they did. Definitely worth the purchase for PC as the graphics are extremely smooth and the gameplay is just downright insane. Soundtrack is actually a lot better than I expected, on par with Hot Pursuit 2.
Rated 2 out of 10 by Nightspy DONT BUY its a 2hr game
Ive played all the series and this 1 is the WORST, i can honestly say the series is DESTROYED with COMMERCIALISM, there is NO STORYLINE, NO APPEAL, GRAPHICS ARENT ALL THAT, and WORST of all YOU GET BOMBARDED WITH FLASHY SCENES & SOUNDS & NO GAME BEHIND ANY OF IT, it actually gets ANNOYING ITS ALL GARBAGE & HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT MAKES A GAME FUN
Rated 1 out of 10 by Name WASTE OF MONEY DON'T BUY!
I returned NFS:Hot Pursuit the day i bought it. I thought it would be an amazing game i was very very wrong. The controls for this game are horrible i don't think i have ever played a game with this bad of controls. I would not recomend this game to anyone, it is a waste of money don't buy it!
