I have played all the need for speeds and have enjoyed all up to NFS most wanted. The last few NFS have not been what they use to be until now. Expect for the lack of manual shifting, some insane time challenges, the occasional uneven races and no customization of cars. NFS Hot Pursuit I a fun game with good graphics, good steering, nice feel of speed, fun cop battles, and sweet cars. Being able to compare my times with my friends and recommend events is a great addition.

A Criterion game of cops and robbers. How could you go wrong? Well, they found a way: they made a precision-driving game. If you enjoy that style of racing, then you'll be as happy as a pig in slop, but I think most folks come to a game like this expecting to be able to drive a reckless maniac. Big mistake.

One of the first tips that appear warn you to avoid ramming other cars. That's a bad sign. Hot Pursuit's events are incredibly unforgiving of minor scrapes or other tiny errors, so hitting a rail even once usually means you might as well pause the game and restart the entire event. Gets old real fast.

It's a pity, because it's good-looking game with lots of variety. But speed and muscle are far less important than the horsepower of your brakes.
