About This Game



Need for Speed Hot Pursuit launches you into a new open-world landscape behind the wheel of the world's fastest and most beautiful cars. From Criterion, the award-winning studio behind the Burnout series, Hot Pursuit will redefine racing games for a whole new generation.

You'll experience stunning speeds, takedowns, and getaways as you battle your friends in the most connected Need for Speed game ever. Through Need for Speed Autolog and its innovative approach to connected social competition, your Hot Pursuit experience will extend beyond the console onto the web, constantly moving your gameplay in new and unique directions.

Loaded with action, this game will challenge you to become Seacrest County's top cop or most wanted racer. For the first time ever in a Need for Speed game, you'll be able to play a full career on either side of the law. Whether you're a lead-foot speeder or a cop with a mean streak, make sure your aviators are spotless and your driving record is anything but.

Key Features

  • Career – For the first time in Need For Speed history play full careers as both cops and racers. Whether playing online with friends, taking on friends challenges or the single player career, players will earn bounty that levels them up and unlocks new cars, weapons and equipment.
  • Need For Speed™ Autolog – In Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, your friends drive your gameplay experience. Autolog is a system that links friends directly to each other’s games, enabling them to compare and share all their experiences, pictures and challenges. Autolog instinctively delivers challenges based on what your friends have been doing, creating a hugely dynamic, socially competitive experience.
  • Cars –In Hot Pursuit, the cars go from hot to hotter. Experience the thrill of driving the world’s most desirable high performance cars at incredible speeds. Feel the power of busting suspects in supercharged cop interceptors like the Lamborghini Reventon or outsmarting the law as a racer in high performance supercars like the Pagani Zonda Cinque.
  • Weapons and equipment – Take down suspects with a variety of cop weapons like spike strips and call in extra support including road blocks as the chase intensifies. Racers have a range of evasion equipment at their disposal to outsmart the cops including jammers that block cop communications and jam their weapons.

I decided to get this game because I played Hot Pursuit 2 when I was younger and thought it would be a nice blast from the past. I was more than right. This game is very different from HP2 yet, I felt right at home. The core game almost seems like those killer action-racing scenes you see in the movies that you always wanted to be in. It just plays so much like a movie that I almost forget I am playing a game, besides me actually pressing keys and driving cars. You can play as cops or racers, both are super fun to be. I feel so bad ♥♥♥ as a Cop, smashing up racer's vehicles in an attempt to bust them. As the Racer, zooming past the opponents and sabotaging their vehicles and the Cop vehicles as well. The only thing that I don't like about these games are these stupid cop missions where you gotta get from point A to point B in a certain amount of time. If you hit anything and I mean ANYTHING, it goes against you, creating a very frustrating segment, especially when you just cross the finish line and are .5 seconds over gold. All together, it's a great package and anyone who enjoys racing games should pick it up at some point.

I dislike racing games. I do not find them interesting at all, but I wanted to get at least one racing game for my Steam library, so due to a nice discount I ended up with "NFS: Hot Pursuit". But this game isn't really a driving simulator, it reminds me of those "car chase" moments in the GTA-like games, which is just fine for me. The game is fun and playing as a cop I get to laugh a lot at how brutal the cops bust the criminals. One time I even made one car fly off a cliff and on the police radio they said "good job, he's going to jail", and I'm like "nope, he - dead". http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=750392717

Clearly the best "Need For Speed" game I have played so far. It's not as realistic as "Need For Speed: Shift", but the amount of fun you get more than overcompensates that small issue!
It has some wierd properties of a console port, but this one is exceptionally well-made.

I'll try to keep it short: Though I enjoyed most of my time with it, I wouldn't recommend it. Maybe in a sale for a few bucks.
Overall it's a good game, though not the best NFS that was ever made but...
there are some mechanics here that can't be turned of that make this game infuriating as hell the further you progress. My biggest issue is the camera-jump that more or less randomly happens while playing certain missions.
Let me explain that: You have items in this game that you can use to either sabotage your opponents or the police. Things like Spiketraps and so on. You get the idea.
This mechanic wouldn't be the worst thing ever if it wasn't for the random camera jumps that happen, when one of your opponents gets hit by for example your Spiketraps.
So you are driving a race, you are barely in the lead, not only dodging the police but also the general traffic, you place down a spiketrap to get yourself a breather, the enemy gets hit and your camera instantly jumps to that event, shows it to you, giving the control over your car to the computer. It's offsetting as hell! It breaks the concentration, the flow of the race and rips the controll of you, sometimes throwing you right back, seconds before you hit a random car that you could have easily avoided otherwise.

If it wasn't for this and the brutal AI (the further you progress) and the ludacris police-forces that annoy the hell out of you, this would have been a really good game. Sadly it isn't...

TL:DR Good game if you have a very very very high frustration tolerance...

This game is absolutely incredible and a great joy to play with a GTX 950 and up! I would suggest this game at $20 as a masterpiece racing game. It is an older game but still a superb choice!!!
