5.0 out of 5 stars Drive like a maniac, feel the speed !, 20 Nov. 2002
This is adrenalin pumping driving at its finest. Firstly, the graphics are awsome with beautifully rendered cars and fantastic textured scenery. Electronic arts have been making racing games for quite some time, so there is no reason why they shouldn't make good use of the Xbox's hardware. Luckily, in this case they have. To make a racing game enjoyable, you need to be able to see deep and wide into the distance scenery, to tear around the corners at high speeds, hit things and still make good progress. NFSP hotpursuit 2 satisfies immensely by giving you an alround driving experience that has had proper playtesting, and doesn't leave you frustrated, like many other racing games can. Therefore, this game is pure racing and not simulation. My only gripe is the slight occaisional slowdown of frame rate when things get busy, but it is not enough to cause any disappointment.
Whereas some other racers try to be as realistic as possible, this is just pure fun. There are various game modes, from a straightforward single race to a championship or Hot pursuit with police vehicles. Major brands of cars are available such as BMW, JAGUAR, FERRARI etc and with a wide variety of tracks and challenges, there is enough here to keep you busy for quite a long while.
Due to the highly enjoyable buzz factor in this game, what you have here is a piece of software you will likely pick up and play again and again. This is one racing game that will keep me coming back for more and will stay in my collection. This is fun, Buy it, and buy it today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh, Laugh and Laugh some more, 12 Sept. 2002
Clerks is the only Kevin Smith film i have seen prior to this, and that was amazingly funny for such a low budget black&white movie. However actor/director Kevin Smith has come a long way since then and ploughed a lot more dollars into this title, and he doesn't disappoint.
For a long time i have always thought us Brits were the best at delivering toilet humour and vulgarity to a film, but i have to say Kevin Smith gives us a run for our money here. However, like the American pie movies, this is only likely to strike a chord with the younger adult audiences, and the older generations probably won't get the jokes and tut tut at the huge amount of profanity.
Basically Jay and Silent Bob are a couple of stoners who hang out at a convenience store in New Jersey, and they have had comic book characters based upon them. Once they hear that a movie is being produced using their characters but with real actors, they embark on a mission to stop the film causing havok throughout their journey. On their way they meet some of the American pie cast and you will see a lot of references to other movies.
All in all this is a great value Dvd set comprising 2 discs. The features disc is colossal with some extremely funny outakes that you wished were left in the theatrical release. Picture and sound are of a very high quality and if you have a dirty sense of humour, this is a must for your collection and superb value for money. Buy it!
