by PrDk New guys at NFS need to study the Creators
NFS finally listen to its fan base and went back to the basics. We would really like to see Underground 3. But Hot Pursuit coming back will settle for now. After listening to the interview, I realize why NFS wasn’t listening to us. They are not the same guys who made the Underground series or the Hot pursuit ones. I know it was a long time ago and people come and go. But when that guy said he had to play the old hot pursuit to know how to make this new version, it hit. No wonder there is no Hip Hop music and only Rock and Roll (sorry to those that love it, but I don't). Please new guys, consider making Underground 3. I’m sure you can find a copy to play and learn somewhere. Lol.

by STARSRPD GREAT GAME A MUST BUY IF U LOVE RACING
FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO CRY AND SAY THIS GAME IS HARD SHOULD NOT EVEN PLAY RACING GAMES, AND SAY THAT GRAN TURISMO IS BETTER, FIRST GRAN TURISMO AND NFS ARE 2 DIFFERENT GAMES AND CANNOT BE COMPARED TO ONE ANOTHER , AND GRAN TURISMO IS ALLOT HARDER TO PLAY THAN NFS . GET NEED FOR SPEED YOU WILL HAVE ALLOT OF FUN.. TRUST ME.

Rated 6 out of 10 by jaycash Not a good investment.
Ok while i give them props for trying to recreate a classic, the need for speed franchise has gone downhill the past few years and this did not help them at all. Yes the game has good graphics and plenty of mission races and it was a nice change to play as the cops from time to time, but the fact of the matter is that this is not the best racing game ever made. One of the main reasons to buy a racing game is for the customization that you can put behind the car and make it your own. I enjoy being able to personalize my vehicles in a racing game. Instead of having all the vehicles perform the same and all are stock i want to be able to add performance upgrades, decals, body work, rims, paint and anything else to make it stand out from the rest. If you are a light racer and dont care about having the same car as the other racers than this game is for you. but if you are like me then i wouldn't even spend the money on this game. It really was not worth the price tag.
Rated 10 out of 10 by AnonymousNFSHPPlayer Best Racing Game of the Year! POW!
NFS Hot Pursuit is definitely the game for you if you enjoy an amazing, well done racer. It allows you to play both aspects of the Law and the Criminal, something most game designers do not consider. The graphics and gameplay are downright amazing, making it near the top of my favorites list. Now, for the split screen, who cares. Since the emergence of online gaming, it nearly eliminated the need for split screen. Companies base their product on what is currently the top choice in multiplayer, which obviously is online gaming. To create split screen gameplay, that much more work, effort, time and money would have been spent on something that only a small portion of the target audience would have enjoyed. In my opinion, split screen is annoying and distracting. Who wants to play a game that distorts the image when its split into 2? I certainly don't, therefore, the lack of split screen is okay with me. Major props to EA for the game and for partnering with Criterion.
Rated 2 out of 10 by itspreach If you're a fan of the original Hot Pursuit BEWARE
I loved the original Hot Pursuit game and was hoping for a throwback to the good old days. Oh how I was let down... If you plan on playing on-line then you might get some extra playtime out of this but the only way to play offline is through career mode (THERE IS NO MULTIPLAYER SPLIT SCREEN = FAIL) and if you're set on only playing as the 'bad guys' then you're even more limited.
There is a very limited selection of "hot pursuit" race types to compete in, and you're forced to play time-trial, heads up racing, and other races where there are absolutely no cops present whatsoever....I didnt buy this game wanting to play an Arcade-style racing simulator, I want to play HOT PURSUIT.
Unfortunately this game does not deliver. If they put as much thought into the gameplay as they did into the intrusive ads and schemes to try and get you to go to the PS Store and buy car packs for real money, it might have had a chance.
Bottom Line: If you're a fan of the original, and you're hoping for the same experience, STAY AWAY.
Rated 7 out of 10 by TheCityLights A Step Down From Hot Pursuit 2
If you have ever played Hot Pursuit 2 for ps2, you must have realized a few key features it went up and down from. The graphics look great, love how they added certain weather options. (although they should've added snow). Multiplayer is pretty fun, like how they added categories of cars so it's fairer for people who don't have the best cars. Now the downside from Hot Pursuit 2. There is no split screen, so you can't play with your friends if they come over. Another down side is that there is just practically one big map. It ruined the features of Free run. And that took away the option of Free run with cops in the game. They also gave the racers too many specials, and seem to make it unrealistic. You can survive a spikes trip? Opinion --> I also don't like that you can crash in it. You can survive when you crash into a police car, And you can keep racing? Hopefully one of these days they launch a possible Download for Hot Pursuit 2 for PS3 in the Store, or they sell a collection like they're doing for some games.
Rated 9 out of 10 by DzyTheGamer The only review you'll need to read!
Ok so this is my honest opinion about this game. Its GREAT the graphics are great.the sounds of the cars are pretty awesome also, dont care for the music other than Chiddy Bang's "Opposite of Adults" and Lupe Fiasco's "Shining Down" but im a Hip-Hop fan, but in thiis game you can either play as a cop or a racer and both are pretty awesome the first time I got it i played for 5 hours straight with out realizing i did, as far as the speeding and look of speeding its not to fast where you lose control but not too slow like Gran Tourismo if you like Street Racing games THIS IS YOUR GAME! If you like Clean professional slow going racing then I say Gran Tourismo is your game. the challenge is ok i had to restart a couple of time but not to hard and not to easy there are gonna be time where your going to lose 1st no matter how far you are. The cars in the game are great even you want better ones you can buy some in the store. Overall this is a GREAT game/
Rated 0 out of 10 by PilotSalem One of the best games of your life
this game is so good that it is even better than call of duty black ops, who everybody is talking about. If you want a good game, maybe the best in your life, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is the game to go with. All the other games do not even compare. also has so many award, best racing game of 2010, best E3 game of 2010, Best Criterion game of 2010, and all the websites are all giving it rewards and good reviews. You like racing games, action games cop racing games, challenging games, and at the same time fun, this is the game to get. There are a lot of action because the cops chase you if you are the cop, you chase them. there are a lot of modes to. You can be the cop or the racer career. THAT IS AWESOME! If you are the cop, you can call in back up, spike strip, or even a helicopter. If you are the racer you can also do things like scramble the radio of the police. This is also the best multi-player game ever. It also has the best cars and is fun to play single player AND multi-player, even online. Thank you for reading.

Even though I said it was for a casual gamer, the likeliness that a casual gamer would pick it up and be like "This is easy to get every achievement" is very unlikely. The challenges are CHALLENGING, but so much to the point where you can't beat the game. And for those who wanted two player, look at most of the games in the past. Shift did NOT have split screen. Hot Pursuit is also for the arcade racer, not for those who like racing sims. The only down fall to this game is the lack of free roam cop chases, but makes up for it with many events in both cop and racer careers that are purely addicting. The online play is amazing. And though the customization feature- THIS GAME ISN'T FOR CUSTOMIZATION PURPOSES. IF YOU HAVEN'T NOTICED, CRITERIA GAMES WORKED ON THIS AND THEY HAVE A REPUTATION FOR JUST THROWING CARS AT YOU! But anyways, the games is amazing, fun, challenging, and just an over all great game. It's worth it in my book.
