I have owned ALL of the Need For Speed series of games offered on the Playstation gaming consoles. and this iteration is probably the best one yet. I'm sure there are probably a lot of die hard fans out there who may not agree with my opinion as it is an awful bold statement, but IMO I think given the re-playability, track selection, car customization options, online gameplay, graphics, pause button being avail, I feel this iteration may be hard to top. I have hours of game play into this game and it's still just as fun and fresh as it was when new!
If you like racing games that are semi realistic with GREAT graphics, then this very well may be the game you are looking for!
The night time driving is very convincing in its realism. The game did not glitch much even during the fast paced racing scenes. Like the real thing each car has its strong points and its not so strong points so doing well in Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is always about having the right vehicle for the right driving challenge. The game world is large enough with enough variation to keep things interesting. At this price point buying Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is almost a non brainer if you like a challenging sophisticated driving game where the thrills do not easily get stale. I do not drive in real life because; I have autism, cerebral palsy and other disabilities so I am a real jerk behind the wheel in this game. I really enjoy all the trouble Need for this Speed Hot Pursuit game lets me get into. The basic Crown Vic type police car rides just like the real thing. It has a powerful engine but can be nimble only if you master its many quirks. I don't want to include any spoilers so I will end this review by saying I enjoyed Need for Speed Hot Pursuit it takes getting used to but I like it. You must understand that while I still have cerebral palsy and other disabilities I have played video games for over 2 years now. I'll never be good at video games but I do well on causal levels now and in some video games I survive nicely on Normal. On one video game I won the game on Veteran difficulty. I will never win a game on Insane difficulty. I say this because; games I once said were extremely hard are a bit easier for me now. Only game I can't play because it is too hard is Borderlands 2. Need for Speed Hot Pursuit by contrast is very challenging but not overly difficult.
More than anything, this game is just so damn fun. By way of plot, a group of street racers have gathered in Seacrest County and its up to the cops to shut them down. You'll alternate between racers and cops, either competing against other racers, or competing with other racers while being chased by the cops. Occasionally you'll have EMPs, spike strips, jammers and turbo boosts at your disposal to help you along. I also liked that fact that you can only crash so many times before you're either out of the race or busted by the cops. You do have to drive carefully.
There's a wide variety of tracks and cars. Most of the big name cars are here: Bugatti, Pagani, McLaren, Porsche, BMW, Lambos, etc. There's plenty to choose from. As mentioned, there are straight up races, time trials, rapid response (cops), shutdowns (cops), duels and more. Each type of race has it's challenges, but it's amazing to go drifting around the corner and then hitting the nitrous as you straighten out. Talk about adrenaline. And it's immensely satisfying to finally beat that gold medal mark on time trials, especially beating that McLaren time trial. The best. So rewarding.
The scenery is also gorgeous - you get beach fronts, woodlands, deserts, snowy areas, etc. Sometimes it's hard to just focus on the race and not try to take it the beautiful scenery. A+! (Even for a game that's nearly 5 years old now - I still play it and it never gets old).
I honestly didn't enjoy the cop races as much. They're fine, but it's much for more to elude the cops than chase the racers.
For those disappointed with the lack of manual transmission, all I can say it focus of the races, the drifting, the time trials and beating your friends' times. One afternoon my friend and I went back and forth for about four hours, trying to beat each other's times. I'd beat his and I'd text him. He'd beat me and text me back. Great fun!
I wish there had been more DLC for this game. I would have purchased all of it in a heartbeat.
Do yourself a favor and grab this game. You won't be disappointed.
