Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2
GREATEST NFS GAME PRODUCED YET!
As soon as I saw the trailers for this game back october 2002, I just knew I had to have a copy. When it came out I rented it and played everyday for 2 weeks. To me, this is the epiphany of all racing games. NFS titles before this was great. I do believe EA stepped it up with this game. Its the last game in the series to feature super cars on extraordinary tracks without customization involved. Its truly a classic, and deserves the right to be played by any car enthusiast. Also i must say the tracks on this game are incredible being that this game was produced for ps2 in 2002, and its graphics can still hold up to todays seventh generation platforms. There are many race modes to choose from in this game and 49 different cars to race with. Multiplayer comes with great gratitude. If this isnt enough for you like the game, just let me know because i dont believe there is a game better.
The Best NFS game out there!
The first NFS: Hot Pursuit game was good, but the second one was amazing! I bought this game the day it came out, and every time when my friends come over, we always pop it in and have a ton of fun! This game has a very good challenge when it comes to cops, and your opponents are even tougher. You have to unlock every single car in the game, which has over 70 different cars. EA also put their own kind of cars, and you can unlock the "NFS" edition of almost every single car. The tracks are very diverse, having different obstacles and tons of shortcuts. There are even shortcuts in shortcuts! Even though the cops are harder in Most Wanted and Carbon, the cops do put up a good fight. The only question I have, why did EA not allow you to customize your cars?
NFS: HP 2
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 is one of the PS2 games I've had the longest, and yet, its never gotten old. Now, I for one am not a big racing game fan, but, I still love this game. The graphics are amazing for this game, based on the fact that its a few years old (but even so they're amazing), and the controls are about as simple as it gets, though there are a few extra buttons, but you hardly ever need to use them. The sound effects are very realistic, in my opinion, and the track variety is astounding. I love all of the tracks they put on this game. The vehicle customization is pretty much obsolete (you can change the car's color), but that doesn't matter because the vehicle variety makes up for it. The game is a little too challenging for me when It comes to playing the world racing mode, but I usually just play the hot pursuit mode with other people, so I almost always avoiding the world racing mode altogether. Pretty much, this game is amazing. If you are a racing fan, get this game for sure, unless you hate cops-chasing-you games. If you are like me, and could take or leave racing games, I probably would still buy this game if you can find it. So, basically, this is the perfect game, unless of course you hate racing games.
Must get for anyone!
This is a must get for any racing fan or even someone who just wants to try it out. This was my first racing game back in 2004 and even though it was made 2 years earlier it was just was a blast. The cops are amazing in this game and they go for anyone in the race. There is cars from Lotus Elise to Ferrari 360 Spider to Corvette Z06 to Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT. The track list is amazing and I would recommend this game no matter what. Get this game if you have a PS2, Xbox, or GameCube (exception- Wii plays GameCube games). I will give this game a 10 out of 10 because the challenge is magnificent, the graphics are amazing, and the cars are awesome. The only thing this game does not have though is customizable car items. Like it doesn't have rims, or like body kits. Just paint. Paint for the car. It does have a NFS version for almost all of the cars and those sometimes are a beauty. The McLaren F1 and the Ferrari 360 Spider probably have the best Need for Speed version. Get this game first against any other game if you have these systems. You can get this game for a cheap price now too.
best of all need for speed games
i just got the game yesterday but me and my sister were playing cops it was good fun exciting good graphics it made me feel like been in the game .
Best NFS game of all time!
This game is Awesome! from the cars, Maps, etc.... I love everything about this game it's a classic, I'm not really into the new NFS games out there with the whole Customization thing, the only one i kinda like is Carbon. All I want is Expensive cars to race not to customize and try to make them pretty. I totally recommend this game of everyone even if its old. If your into the whole Customization thing, then you will be disappointed.
Remember when Need for Speed Was Good?
I used to play this when I was a little kid a lot, so it brings back a lot of memories. The thing I like about this game is that you are able to unlock so many cars, there's a champion based mode and hot pursuit mode which help you unlock more race courses and cars like I said earlier. I like playing with cops on you and all that it makes races a lot more challenging. What I dislike about newer Need for Speed games is that they don't really feel as great as this game or Underground 2 (Undercover was good only because it felt like Underground 2 and Hot Pursuit 2) and you know you think that EA would try to make the ones as good as this one but they're like most game companies focusing on just graphic and their top sellers (for instance EA with Battle Field, not that I have anything against that franchise I would just rather see EA go back to the good old days)
"One of the best"
i grew up wit this game and the only negative thing is tht on one championship event, u can only use the Ferrari 360 Modena for tht one time........ unless u hav the cheat code haha. And the Ultimate Racer mode is a little more difficult than Championship but not much and its a little more fun. Overall, this game is beast and it is great for mostly pre-teens and teenagers. One of my favorites.
this is one of the greatest need for speed games you can get
Singleplayer wise this game is really good but mulitplayer it is amazing. I remmeber bringing these and my ps2 to my grandparents house and me and my cousins would play it for hours. And then uncles got into it was really awesome. The game is a must buy if love racing and good racing multiplayer games.
