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

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.

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!!!

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...
