Gameplay

A throwback to earlier games in the series, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit allows players to experience the thrill of the chase from either the perspective of a racer or the police, with police cars constantly chasing racers. Set along 100 miles of road situated in fictional Seacrest County, the gameworld of Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit is fully open-world, meaning that players can go wherever they want and race or chase whomever they want to. Players have access to a career mode regardless of which side they are on, and police and racers both have access to differing power-ups to give them an extra edge in a pinch. Cars available in-game are realistic replicas the pantheon of high-performance vehicles available in real-life, with cops and racers having equal access to most cars featured, but some being exclusive to either side. Additional features include: Autolog, which allows players to communicate and compare stats via a social media type network, 1-8 player online game support and multiple play modes.

Key Game Features

  • Career – For the first time in Need for Speed history, players will experience the gripping and heart-racing action of both cops and racers. Hot Pursuit seamlessly links a tremendously deep and fully-defined single player career with a groundbreaking multiplayer experience across all race modes. In the end, 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. Need for Speed Autolog is a revolutionary system that connects friends directly to each other's games, enabling them to compare and share all their experiences, pictures and challenges.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Game, Affordable Price... February 18, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
This is the fist game I've ever downloaded using this option, first of all, I have no problems with the download manager at all. even though I reboot my PC two or three times before the game was downloaded completely. The price as my tittle says is very very affordable. Second of all, the game is amazing, good graphics, a lot of playable options and the online games are just challenging.
Finally, I recommend this game to every NFS junkie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great January 11, 2011
By Maximus
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember purchasing "Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit" in 1999. It quickly became my favourite racing game. Why? Because it was a little different than other racing games: You had to deal with the police(!) Or you could choose to police the highway yourself. Same thing here, only a lot better graphics (the in-game images speak for themselves). I think driving games that are only about doing laps as quickly as possible (like most racing games), can easily become a bit boring. But when the game is also about having to outrun the police, it all gets a bit more exciting. But the police isn't easy to outrun here. The police in this game have cars that most people would kill for. I mean, the police are driving a Lamborghini(!) And the combination of black, white, red and blue just looks so cool on it. When driving as the police, speeders are nailed by simply ramming into them until the meter reaches zero, but you can also bust them by using electromagnetic pulse, spikestrips, calling in a roadblock or a police helicopter. The same thing goes if you drive as the speeder (except roadblock and helicopter, they are thus replaced with jammer and turbo). This game is both visually and audibly stunning, but what really makes this game great is the selection of cars to choose from. WOW! Here are some of them:

*Bugatti Veyron (insane car with a top speed of 267.85 mph)
*Lamborghini Reventon (the best looking car in the game in my opinion, in fact the best looking car ever)
*Koenigsegg Agera (I would have liked it if it wasn't for the fact that I don't like swedish cars)
*Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 Super Veloce (like the name says: Superfast (Super Veloce))
*Audi R8 5.

3.0 out of 5 stars Burnout meets Need For Speed December 21, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The Hot Pursuit games of the Need For Speed series were always my favorites. This iteration is very fun to play despite some issues. The goal is not only to win races but also elude the cops. It's the same concept from the previous games. The ability to deploy spike trips, jammers, EMP's and turbos give you the ability to dish it out to the cops is a nice addition. But the recharging nitrous booster could have been left out. The graphics are very good by X-box 360 standards, but do not take full advantage of today's PC hardware. This probably because this is a direct port from the console version.

The controls can't be customized especially steering and braking sensitivity. This makes the controls a little twitchy. It's really optimized for the X-Box 360 controller. Car physics are really simplified. It seems that every car under steers and drifts through every turn no matter how little braking and turning is applied. There are many cars but there seems to be very little difference between them in handling and braking.

The multi-channel sound is used well. You can hear the sounds of cars whizzing by you from front to back. The sound of your own car seems oddly muzzled though. It lacks customization beyond changing the sound effects, voice and music levels. I would have like to hear the sound of the engine more.
Despite these issues, this game is still a blast. You have lots of cars to unlock as you move through the game (sorry NO FERRARI). The free drive mode helps you practice the routes in different cars without any consequences. The crash animations a la Burnout are spectacular.

On the whole, its a good game but if you have a console, you're better off getting the console version.

Pros: Graphics visuals, high speed chases, large selection of the fastest cars.

Cons: lack of customization, arcade driving physics, too much reliance on nitrous

5.0 out of 5 stars Criterion hit a home run with this one. June 13, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I remember playing NFS Hot Pursuit 2 on my friend's computer and thinking it was the coolest dang thing in the world. I soon caught wind of this new version and was captivated by the graphics and options it presented. I got it for $17.97 at the time, which was an awesome price. It was the first real online PC game I have ever bought. I immediately fell in love. The graphics are just as promised: AMAZING!!!! It has some of the fastest cars in the world, and some that you see on a daily basis, but either way, this game is great fun. You either play as a racer and smash the crap out of cops, or play as a cop and smash the crap out of racers. It's pretty self-explanitory. IGN said it well in their video review with, "What you see is what you get, it just so happens that what you get is pretty darn awesome." There is no story. You just race. I like the refreshing take on racing without all the special racing politics like teams taken out. It has a ton of achievements to get and many cars to choose from which keeps you interested. It also has a very nice online client server so you go head to head with friends or complete strangers. This also adds to the fun factor. Another thing I really liked is the lack of glitches. The PC is plagued with glitches in so many ways, but this game seems to have evaded the issue. Now, it is a relatively demanding game and you might be disappointed if you have anything less than an entry-level gaming rig. Spend some time with the minimum system requirements before you buy. Also, this game works quite nicely with a USB xBox 360 controller. I strongly recommend this, or a steering wheel and pedals for this game. I don't know how people can drive with a keyboard, but I can't. So, that's what I have to say about Hot Pursuit. It's a great game with no glitches and great features. It is an incredible game.
