Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360

Manufacturer's Description

Need for Speed is going back to its roots and that can mean only one thing: police chases and ridiculously expensive supercars. Hot Pursuit doesn't make any claims to be the most realistic racer out there, even compared to previous games, but it does aim to be the most fun.

The chase is on as Need for Speed regains its mojo
Racers have underhand power-ups like radar jammers
Use an EMP blast as a cop to stop any racer in their tracks
There are no rules of the road as a Need for Speed racer

You can play either as cops or racers, but both sides get ultra powerful cars and a range of power-ups to get them to the race's end. If you're a cop your job is to chase down your quarry using any means necessary, including roadblocks.

If you're playing as a racer you'll often be in a slower car than your pursuer, but you won't be tied to any of their rules and get your own powerful power-ups like the radar jammer. With its own in-game social network you don't just get to race online you can live the whole Need for Speed lifestyle with your friends and rivals.

Key Features
  • Police Chase: Play as the cops and see how many racers you can bust, in both single player and online matches, using a range of specialised power-ups.
  • Race Driver: Reignite the spirit of Need for Speed as you try to keep ahead of the cops. Use every dirty trick in the book, including power-ups such as a radar jammer.
  • Facebook Driving: New Autolog social network lets you track your in-game career and brag about it with others, as personalised challenges are issued depending on your performance.
  • Top Gear: Race in some of the most powerful road cars ever made, including the Porsche 918 Spyder, Lamborghini Reventón, and Bugatti Veyron.
  • Trusted Source: Developed by Criterion Software, makers of the critically-acclaimed Burnout Paradise - with help from Battlefield developers DICE on the huge open world landscape.
About the Developer: Criterion Games
This Guilford-based studio started out as part of camera makers Canon. Their first big hit was arcade racer Burnout, which has so far gone on to spawn four sequels. Criterion were bought by EA in 2004 and have since also worked on first person shooter Black and Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game, but where's the replay?? 11 Jan 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've never really been into the NFS games but after playing the demo (and seeing it for £25 on amazon!) i had to buy it.
The cars look fantastic, as do the areas you race on, the handling is easy to get into but difficult to master and the autolog is really well implemented. Autolog shows you your friends times when loading the event you are about to play and also your previous best if you've played it before. If you beat a friends time, a quick press of a button will inform them you have beaten their time and also make a note of this against the event on the Map and in a seperate area called the Wall. You can view the wall, see a friend has beaten one of your times and one more press of a button will take you directly back to that event so you can try and regain top spot (or whichever spot you lost!).
This gives the game fantastic replay value.
The events themselves are generally great fun though i did find the ones which are basically time trials a little dull compared to events with other racers/ cops in but thats just a personal preference and they are probably only 10-15% of the single player game.

There are 2 points that i find HUGELY disappointing but fortunately still dont ruin the game for me.
The first is a total lack of TV style replay after the race. Maybe its a technical issue, but replays of these races would have been THE most amazing and spectacular i have ever seen on any system. Correct me if im wrong but it seems that the racing games with the most spectacular action/ crashes rarely seem to have a replay. Im looking at you Blur, Burnout Paradise and Split Second. Ok, DIRT has them but you get my drift.
The second point is in multiplayer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great NFS comeback! 19 Nov 2010
By keeano
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was starting to get bored of the NFS series, as Im more into arcadey driving games, and so when I heard about Hot Pursuit I knew I had to get it. Well worth the money. The grapgics are stunning and the game itself its really enjoyable, especially the online mode. There are so many cars which do handle differently to each other, and in the online mode both cops and racers have tools to help them either catch or evade. Played this game almost constantly for 4 hours its that good. The only thing I dont like about it is the cars drift easily round corners, but only as I find it irritating, but the drifts are so easy to control so you wont spin out or anything. Even the single player is great fun, and both career and online you are constantly unlocking new cars or equipment upgrades. For anyone who says 'o its too fake.....' its going to be, its made to be just pure fun and adrenline filled, and what do you expect, the idea of racing a Maserati along coastal roads at 100+ MPH being chased by cops is just never going to happen in reality. If you played Hot Persuit 2, this is basically a far superior version in every single way!!! Well worth getting if you love arcade racers, fast cars and action packed racing!

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this game 6 May 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
This game is nothing but fun.

There is no realism here at all, but it so much fun I can't even describe it. There is literally nothing about it that I do not love.

The music rocks, the graphics are amazing, the cars are lovely, the tracks are great, the handling is brilliant, and it was very adrenalizing indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars :) 4 Jan 2011
By Waggie
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is a must buy for any need for speed enthusiast. I must admit it is not as good as most wanted or carbon but still an amazing game with brillaint graphics and the creators of burnout. The whole visuals of the game are brilliant but the bad thing about it is that it does not have a story line. Without the story line you dont get the same tension that you would have got in the previous games in the series. The good thing about it is that you can play as cop or racer. This makes the experience even better. For anybody that likes cars being thrown around the highway driving at 200mph then this is the game to buy i bought it and i love it fun for the whole family :)

5.0 out of 5 stars love it 13 Aug 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
For me this is probably the best need for speed game, I have played earlier versions and the newer titles and I think this is the best one by a million miles. I know this is just my opinion but give it a go . For the money I don't think you will be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars If Only 21 Nov 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
OK no frills no long going on and on about how great the game is :o) i love this game apart from
1) No 2 player offline mode
2) No system link
3) repeat repeat repeat
If your xbox gold you will have hours and hours of fun playing cops and robbers with your mates.
If like me you love nothing more than having a race with your children split screen or system link then you are going to be in for a let down i'm sorry to say :o(
I'm a huge gamer and will play most new games till complete this one i don't think i will play more than a couple of hours before i get rather bored

Hot Pursuit is a solid Action-Racing game. Nothing to complain about and some of the police chases are crazy fun. I would recommend this purchase to anyone who likes action and racing.
