Yet another rushed mess of a game
on 14 December 2011
Well, EA are at it again with Hot pursuit, another addition to the exhausted NFS range of games. I remember the old hot pursuit for ps1 I think it was and loved it to bits along with road challenge, so naturally seeing a new hot pursuit instantly put my fears of another bad EA game aside and bought the game when it first came out - BIG MISTAKE.
Firstly, the cars handle like they did in ridge racer for the ps1, very unrealistically and just seems like you are driving a tub of lard on wheels. The novelty of being in a cop car soon wares off and the weapons are just ridiculous.
Graphics are good, cars look real just ashame they didnt respond or drive like you would expect them to. The lifespan of this game will be very short even for car fans (like myself) this will be even shorter if you dont have online facilities. I took this game back the day after I bought it and got COD instead.
In summary, NFS hot pursuit is another rushed game by EA and yet another huge disappointment to the NFS range of games which, I have personally given up with because they are only getting worse. Don't pay more than £10 for this game, you will most certainly be disappointed if you do. If you are thinking about buying this, try Driver San Francisco, it does everything this game sets out to and much much more.
My rating: 38% (Not worth considering)
