Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit is an arcade racing game, where you complete missions switching between a police officer and a racer. While the goal is the same - to reach the finish first, the game allows trying another side of races as you need to stop a lawbreaker in the police part of the game.
Unlike typical racing titles, Hot Pursuit follows the principle that "all is fair." That's why both sides have special tools to stop the opponent. You can throw spikes on the road or use turbo acceleration to break away from the pursuit. Police can block the road and summon a helicopter for help from above. 
Additionally, Hot Pursuit features a new Autolog social system. With it, you can compete with your friends and see the statistics on every race. The system compares your results with your friends' ones and notifies you every time your record is beaten.

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit reviews and comments

Incredible Disappointment. I cleared the Game again after 44min Game time. Now, of course, you can say, "Of course, you don't give the Game a Chance, the Fun won't come up until later!" But no, I've played almost all THE NFS parts and this part is by Far the Worst. After the 3rd Race To drive Dodge Viper, which feels the Same as the Mazda rx8 with the minimally small Difference of Having a higher Number on Tacho which you can hardly feel, no, just fails. EVERY Car drives spongy. I wonder if EA did this extra, or after the Effort said such a great Map and the Strains of such great Songs to choose, well we release times, shit on Story and Driving Sensation.

NEED FOR SPEED HOT PURSUIT ... NfS HP is and will simply remain one of my favorite NfS Need for Speed Hot Pursuit shows how good a NfS can be even without Tuning. In HP, you'll take on the Role of Cop or Racer, depending on your Choice. Once a Level has been completed, you will receive Bounty that will allow you to unlock Cars. Maximum as Cop and Racer 20 Levels. There is also Equipment Eg EMP and Nail Band. But These level themselves only through successful Use. So off to the Pro's and Con's PRO Good graphic Good Driving Physics VERY Good Soundtrack Large selection of Cars CONTRA Unfortunately, the DLC did not get it for because PC Rubberbanding ♥ ♥ ♥ t often got something off, At Nfs, however, nothing new FAZIT NfS HP is definitely a highly recommended N fS Title, even more than 5 Years old, still makes it a lot of Fun

That's how we'd be at the one Need for Speed. This is extremely different from the Series. What initially convinced with his Graphic. And yes I loved this Game. And I still think it's extremely good. Not only is the Graphics still handsome in this Day and age, but also the ingenious Vehicle Selection for Police officers from Ford Crown Victoria To Ford Shelby to The Koeniggsegg in Carbon. Exaggerated? Definitely not! I mean who has no Desire to chase a Pagani with a Bugatti Veyron And inflict damage of several Million in a few Minutes. The hunted by the Multiplayer can also be your Friend. Just beautiful. The Story is therefore boring or well not actually present. BUT we have the up to Level 20 ranking system, in which you can Ascend as a Gangster or Officer. If you fancy with a cool Soundtrack and Vehicles that can't even afford to heat the Dubai Police through the area is definitely right in this Game. For me it was worth the Experience and I go with good Memories from this Game. A Must for Need For Speed fans!
