Let me start by saying this is the last time I am pre-ordering a game. I was clearly blinded by the hype machine. I certainly have to applaud EA and their marketing department because I was hotly anticipating the release of this game. With the knowledge that Criterion Games was behind the wheel bringing back the classic cops and racers gameplay, I was pumped. But the reality soon hit me once I got my hands on it. There are a number of features that are mysteriously missing. And knowing EA, I fear will probably be added eventually, as paid DLC.

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.

I was so pumped to hear that Burnout developer Criterion was behind the new Hot Pursuit. What could be better than that? It's like double chocolate chip cookies and half & half cream together. Fans of the series, such as myself, have waited almost a decade for a return to the roots. Unfortunately, I was disappointed to see so many aspects that made other Hot Pursuits great completely removed from the finished product.

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.

Let's get to the point...The game is awesome! If you liked the older version of this game, then you will love this one. If you are a little new to the Need for Speed "world" and if one of the only NFS titles you ever payed played was Shift, expect something a little different. As Game Informer and Gamepro Magazine says, "this title takes the NFS back to its roots" and they are not lying. The previous reviewer, somehow put "Grand Turismo" in his review on Hot Pursuit....How can that happen?! In no way, shape, or form can this game or should this game be compared to Grand Turismo. This game is as "arcade" as you can get, but if you are looking for more of a "Sim" racer, look elsewhere. If you are familiar with the old school version, then you will be familiar with the gameplay of this one. The graphics are beautiful and the framerate is "Wipeout" satisfaction. You can play as the cop and the street racer in which you can climb the ranks of "Most wanted" by the police...or The most badd@$$ cop that no one can outrun.

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..
