Product Description

Product Description

In Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 you'll feel the rush of flying down the open road in a Ferrari, a Lamborghini, a Porsche or some other exclusive automobile recreated in loving detail. Oh, while being chased by some of the fastest cops on the roadways. There are more than 20 of the world's greatest supercars rendered in awesome detail; the immersive environments are full of downpours, intense sunlight, storms and blizzards. The crashes are spectacular, with realistic damage, and incredible graphics effects include detailed reflections, lighting effects and particle physics. Police pursuit ranges from a single police cruiser to an intensive manhunt with a full squad of cars, choppers and road blocks; traffic and police combine to create exciting situations unique to non-racetrack environments. The gameplay is fast and furious, with simulated speeds of 170 mph (running at 60 frames per second) through realistic traffic situations. There's an extensive reward path with upgraded cars, new courses, new race modes, and more.

Review

"Breathless driving, police interference, cool shortcuts, and superb 3-D. This is an enjoyable and hugely satisfying racer. 8/10." -- Official PlayStation 2 Magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars The best racing game ive ever played 19 Mar 2003
This is quite frankly a stunning game. Im not a racing game fan in the slightest but when my girlfried purchased this beauty i couldnt help but try it out. I dunno what it is but racing games just fail to grip me but i literally havnt put this one don since we purchased the thing!
There are so many things to do and so much to unlock it keeps your interest. The gameplay and graphics are superb and the addition of the police pursuit really gives you an overhelming feel of victory should you manage to doge their many baracades
You dont have to be a racing fan to enjoy this, if you are looking for a game that will give you months of enjoyment and isnt too hard to get hold of then this is a must buy game. On a racing game scale i cant really compare it because there are many racers that i havnt played but this is by far the best one ive played and thats why it gets 5 stars
BUY IT !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars best racing game for ages 24 Nov 2003
this game is truly the best game for ages.authough the scenary detail is limted it is good, dispite this the car detail is the best i have seen since lotus callenge.also the cars have real damage this is because unlike gt3 the rights to deforme the body shape significantly have been bought from the car companys(i am not putting gt3 down).also the cars in this game are great, from the brand new porsche gt, to the classic maclaren f1.this game is a must have for any racing game fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars WOW 23 Nov 2002
By A Customer
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2 is probably the best racing game out there. It is simply outsanding and having nearly completed the game myself after ages of racing on well put together tracks it is really great fun. The graphics are amazing and so are the high speed cop chases. Just picture this.......you are on the final curve......in your wonderfully well put together Lamborghini...... you've got two police cruisers behind you......and there is a roadblock ahead with a helicopter in front of you. You sharply turn left into the small gap inbetween the roadblock and the edge of the track and you get passed. You are now doing 190mph on the long last straight, 200mph, 205mph. This is when the helicopter comes into play as it fires a small homing missile......and you are to fast for it. You cross the finish line with an overpowering sense of victory.
It really is that exciting if you like cars alot.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic 1 Dec 2002
I was very sceptical when my mate bought round his PS2 and Need For Speed 2. But this game is truly spectacular and we just couldnt stop playing it. The graphics, gameplay and sound are truly awesome. Driving through forests at 200mph in a Mclaren F1, whilst jumping off ramps etc was recreated with such realism, you really will only turn it off when you're falling asleep or you get a headache from staring at the screen for so long. Buy it. A truly superb game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent racing game - truly addictive 1 Nov 2002
There are many racing games out on the ps2 at the moment - Need For Speed 2 is one of the best. Graphics are excellent (watch as you are driving through a forest and catch glimpses of the sun through the trees) Gameplay is also superb with many different modes of play. Arcade and World Championship are joined by new modes like Be The Cop where you are driving a police car and you have to stop 5 speeding cars by crashing into them and bringing them to a stop. You can also radio ahead for backup cars, roadblocks and even police helicopters dropping bombs in front of your target to slow him down. And it's all great fun!!! Of course, the other side of the coin is Challenge mode when you get the chance to outrace the cops. Plenty of cars available here (49) although you only start off with 12. By winning races and experience points you unlock extra cars and bonus tracks. Highly recommended if you like racing games like Grand Turismo. Excellent value for money and highly addictive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected 27 Nov 2002
I was pleasantly surprised by this game. It has taken the best ingredients from the competition and put them all into one package.
NFS Hot Pursuit 2 has graphics that stand up to the benchmark of GT3 (OK, they're not AS good, but graphically it is the nearest rival that GT3 has amongst PS2 racers), it has the close racing action of TOCA Race Car Driver and it has the arcade fun of Burnout 2 (now, not only can you "steer" your opponents into oncoming traffic, but you can also stuff a pursuing police car into an oncoming truck - infinately more satisfying!!!).
For those of you who like the souping up and tuning options, there is none of that here - just racing action. In a way I think that is a good thing - in GT3 if you wanted your AI opponents to present any sort of challenge in identical cars, you had to de-tune your own car so that it had about 150bhp less and then just outbrake them on corners (whilst trying to hold them up on straights).
Cars are virtually all European (what about the Japanese Honda NSXs, Toyota Supras and Mitsubishi GTOs?) which is a shame, but all the major euro-marques are present in some form.
I still rate GT3 as the best PS2 racer OVERALL, but this is probably the most fun and most easily accessible for novices - just plug and play!
