The biggest problem for me, is the lack of split screen and the huge focus on online gameplay. I have never been a fan of online multiplayer as the biggest joy of multiplayer is to talk smack with friends you know, when they are in same room as you. Online is just about the same as playing with AI bots, especially in a racing game. If you do not have an internet connection this game is going to feel very limited. Acknowledgement about the demand for split screen has been all but absent from Criterion who continue to be focused on Autolog. I have done several hot pursuit events online and while it functions just fine it felt no different from the single player events. It's just not anymore compelling when you don't know who you are racing against.
Besides the lack of local multiplayer, also absent is any replay functionality. While some games only let you view a replay such as Need For Speed Shift, Hot Pursuit does not even give you that option. Your only option is to take a photo during gameplay which of course can only be uploaded to the EA servers so again, if you do not have an internet connection, you can't even save photos.Read more ›
First of all, there is no manual transmission. That's right. You get to go through the whole game enjoying lazy automatic transmission. Last I remember, driving are much more engaging, exciting, and nerve-racking when you can control shifting.
The soundtrack, while having some quality tunes, really is not put together well. There is no flow i.e. jam to adrenaline-pumping electronica followed up immediately by slow-paced hip hop. Doesn't exactly transition well and really kills the vibes you get going. You can't pick and choose what tracks you listen to either. You can choose to add your own playlist of custom songs which is an alternative, but they don't fade-in/out and just continuously play as long as the disc is running.
OK, so I can attempt to make due with no manual transmission and an unbalanced soundtrack, at least I can still rocket these cars off some jumps while I'm racing in traditional Hot Pursuit fashion, right? Not this time! Well, I'm over 60% through the Career and I haven't experienced any air time yet, I'm assuming the worst...
All is not lost though, at least I can say I have exclusive cars thanks to ordering the Limited Edition.Read more ›
The controls are spot on and fully custom. If you dont like the default R1 acceleration...take it old school and accelerate with X. The sound is really nice as well..if you are familiar with NFS games (starting with underground) then you know you can expect some really nice "driving music" to set the tone of the Hot Pursuits. Also, the game does a nice job of giving you the history, specs, and special qualities of each car with really nice voiceovers..(This can be compared to Grand Turismo, but being that GT is a Sim, GT goes more into depth with this.)
As always, this Need for Speed is fast!! Sometimes too fast! Remember the shortcuts you could take from the old school version? Well, they are back..Read more ›
