Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit
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.

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.
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!
It is a very fun game! Its gameplay is great and the cars are so cool. It is great game overall.
NFS Finally Back?
So I've been playing NFS games since Porsche unleashed back in the day, so I know a thing or two about the franchise in addition to being extremely thorough when looking at a product analytically with minimal bias. So let's get started, since carbon and shift I thought Need for Speed fell off as the games were just not interesting and lacked stick-to-it-tiveness required to satisfy and justify the price point, not to mention the amount of time one would have to commit in order to beat the game. Simply put it just was not worth it. Getting back to their Arcade style roots VS trying to create the ultimate racing simulator was the best move they made by far, there are a variety of races so even if you’re new to racing games you will find something you like. Longtime fans should probably enjoy everything about it. Sound is great but not awesome, same goes for the graphics. If you have a console and an HDTV then you shouldn't have any issues. If you are a PC gamer NFHSP lacks quite a bit for adjustments and visual customizations when it comes to graphic controls. I guess EA decided that they were done and didn't need to enhance anything else even for the PC edition. The replay ability is very high so even if you get this game at a higher price point, its well worth it based on the amount of hours you will spend playing it. Lastly, and this does not apply to most PC gamers. The 3D in this game brings it to another level entirely, something that really cannot be conveyed through words but rather needs to be experienced firsthand to understand it properly, so I'm not going to attempt to convey the experience. Nevertheless, I'm using the Nvidia 3D vision set on the Asus 23 inch 120Hz monitor with an EVGA GTX 470 SC video card (17-920 Oc'd to 3.8GH 6 GB ram 1600MH G.Skill 64GB SSD). Please don't believe the hype off of most of these reviews, a lot of them don't make any sense and lack a good base for why they gave the game a good/bad mark. Hope this helps for anyone on the fence.
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.
MISSING SOME AMAZING CARS
LOVE THIS GAME BUT IT ONLY HAS NEW CARS IT NEEDS CLASSICS AND IT DOES NOT EVEN HAVE THE NEW SUPERCAR THE LEXUS LFA BUT IT IS STILL A GOOD GAME THOUGH
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.
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.
