Enter NFS: HP, a new revolution or a "reset" to the series, that picks up right where the PS2 dropped it off. Hot Pursuit comes back to what Need for Speed is all about, and why so many of us were hooked on the PS1 and PS2 versions of the games (yes the PC gamers too) Driving fast cars, getting away from the cops, and going so darn fast you have trouble dodging a car because your brain can't register its there before your taillight makes a beeline through your skull.
But, that's enough background, on to the review.
Simple, easy to read, and coherent, even down to the Autolog, and all of its messages and information. The menu's are very easy to navigate and easy to understand. The Career Map reminds me of Burnout 3, which I'm not surprised about really considering Criterion made the game, the menu works the same too, you highlight a sign and select an event to run. You only start with a few for either Cops or Racers and you earn more as you level up and complete events.Read more ›
I felt something as I played the demo. I felt a return to the simple, point-to-point races from the very first NFS, the adrenaline of those tight, narrow-margin photo finishes from Burnout and the last Hot Pursuit titles, and from Most Wanted, the absolute thrill of running from - and often into - The Man...
And that's what Hot Pursuit is - plain and simple. Don't boot it up expecting hardcore driving physics. Don't expect to blow away the competition with highly tuned supercars, and don't expect to spend hours tweaking the layout of vinyls or leafing through dozens of aftermarket wheels and wings. What you can expect is some sweaty palms as you drift the last corner to the finish, a twisted face as you plow into that guardrail you saw one second too late, and a grin from ear-to-ear as you watch the cop car you just plowed into rolling down the road, raining shrapnel along the asphalt.
It's not perfect. I'll concede that. The rubber-banding is still pretty strong - I'm zipping at top speed down a straight as an opponent in the same car cruises on by... In addition, the cop chases are still treated too much like a race. I took a gorgeous shortcut in my cop car, got ahead of my suspects, spun the opposite direction and prepared for a head-on collision as the words "WRONG WAY" suddenly lit up the screen... What'ch'you mean wrong way?! I AM the Law!! (Granted, I hit my target at somewhere around a buck-fifty and INSTANTLY wasted the guy... So I wasn't really complaining.Read more ›
So, when I purchased this, my hope was that we could again enjoy playing "Need for Speed" together, as in one as the cop, one as the criminal, race via split screen. Nope. This doesn't support split screen or co-op play.
It doesn't seem to connect via a normal Xbox Live account either, but requires a specific/separate EA Games account (which, whenever you start the game you're prompted for and have to skip if you don't).
Beyond that, as just a one player racing game, it's still pretty fun. The courses and objectives are challenging and even in just the first sector which we've unlocked, there are about 10 different courses, each with a subsection of various missions.
It works extremely well with a force feedback steering wheel (surprising that all racing games don't?).
As a racing game by itself, it's really good, but I sincerely miss having the split-screen option since I still love playing video games along side my son and don't intend to buy another Xbox and Xbox live account to sit in another room just to play together (defeats the purpose, no?).
