Rating: 9.5 Out of 10
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is a remake of the classic Hot Pursuit only this time made by the people who brought you Burnout Paradise. When the trailer was shown at E3, people were immediately excited for this game. Now that the game is out it is safe to say that this is the game that brought me back to the Need for Speed series. The races and cop chases on and offline are exhilarating and with the new Autolog system you can beat your friend’s times and rub it in their face. The controls, graphics, and music for this game are great and there are a ton of great cars and online options to choose from. The only problem I really had with the game is that when the camera cuts out to a wreck or successful spike strip, it can sometimes mess you up. Overall though, this is the best Need for Speed racing game I have played in a long time and if you want to play as both cops and racers, give this a shot.
