Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit
Nice Racing Game
It doesn't have that need for speed feel, but for a racing game it is pretty exceptional. The graphics are nice and the gameplay is fun but after a while it gets boring. Another thing is that they do have a pretty nice car collection so you'll have a lot of cars to choose from.
Mostly Non-Gameplay Related Issues
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is a great racing game. It's not extremely realistic, which you would know if you've played an NFS game before. It also isn't just smash-into-someone-and-they-go-flying like Burnout. It's street racing. You unlock weapons to use, turbo, which makes you feel like you're jumping to light speed, and other police support to call in for backup (while playing as a cop). I think unlocks are spaced fairly apart, but sometimes new vehicles are a downgrade from what you already have. I also kinda wish there were more things to use (such as turbo, spike strip, EMP, etc.) and you could choose 4 to use at one time. I also miss the customization from NFS: Most wanted (2005). Now all you can do is change the car's color, and that's only if you're playing the racer career. Another gameplay feature that makes me rage is the time you would get added in the Rapid Response races. I'll be too careful, jinx myself, and finish the race with an extra x amount of seconds added. But that doesn't want to make me not play this game. Other than that, the gameplay is great and police/racer AI was pretty good. Now, onto what I don't like: signing up for an EA account. If you don't sign up, you'll be reminded to every time you start the game, and if you do, it fills up the screen with trying to beat your friends at races, Speedwalls, etc. It also ruins car selection: now, instead of having all of your unlocked cars to be picked, it adds in vehicles that you can only get if you purchase them. Couldn't they just add an icon at the start screen with a "Store" title? I guess it is an EA game. Besides the EA account, minor gameplay irritations, and a ton of "buy me to win" content, it's a solid racing game. Since buying the extra content doesn't affect the game, NFS: Hot Pursuit earns 9 stars.
Better than Gran Turismo 5
Chasing speeders, being chased, smashing cars, laying spike strips, calling in roadblocks, intense action that keeps you on your toes. This game is fun! I like playing it and even WATCHING IT! :D
Need For Spped Hot Pursuit
After some weak NFS games from the past years , NFS Hot Pursuit rescues the franchise from the shadow of the bad NFS games , NFS Hot Pursuit has an arcade style and in single player we will play as racers or as a cop in a variety of events , the events are fun and you will enjoy the great variety of cars then the game has , online modes are also good and its a real enjoyable racing arcade game on the PS3
This game gets me pumped. The gameplay is awesome, the handling of the wheel is crazy. Not much more to say.
Nothing like the OLD Stuff!
Don't buy this game if you expect something like Most Wanted (PS2), ProStreet, or Underground. The game itself is cool, but the fact that you can't customize your cars sucks. They tried hard with this game but its kinda dissapointing. So far Need for speed its going down. Same thing with the New Most Wanted you can't customize or play in Split Screen. Only reason I'm playing this game its because I spent $20 box in it. LOL
I Thought I Bought Need for Speed, Not Burnout
I grew up playing Need for Speed III and spent countless days playing Hot Pursuit 2. But this is barely Need for Speed and is not worthy of the name Hot Pursuit. The only Burnout game I liked was Paradise, and this is no Paradise. The gameplay is fine, save for the Burnout carry overs, and the soundtrack is decent, but nothing special. I keep playing this game just to like it, but I just can't find it in myself to do it. I'm not trying to say that his game should be as great as the others were when I was a kid, but this just isn't.
I hope Criterion can prove that they can be trusted with the NFS series when Most Wanted Redux comes out late this month.
this is the best need for speed since most wanted for ps2 the new need for speed most wanted is going to e the best
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.
very fun the best grafics ever in a racing game.if u like racing game this is for u.plus u can be a cop and a racer
