GameSpot
7 October 2002
  • Excerpt: Electronic Arts recently released three versions of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit II, the sequel to the 1998 arcade-style racing game, Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit. This fast-paced driving game is currently available for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and GameCube, with a PC version to follow at the end of the month. You'd expect that the console versions of this game to be identical, but strangely enough, they're not.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2

  • Conclusion: Mit ein wenig Fine-Tuning hätte aus NfS: Hot Pursuit 2 ein echter Knaller werden können! Eine durchgehend annehmbare Framerate wäre für den nächsten Gamecube-Teil jedenfalls wünschenswert. Könnt Ihr dieses große Manko verschmerzen, freut Ihr Euch aber trotzdem an einem ansonsten überdurchschnittlich guten Racing-Game.
  • Pros: Viele und schön gestaltete Original-Autos und Strecken, Abwechslung durch Jagd durch die Polizei
  • Cons: Ruckel-Grafik, Keine Möglichkeit als Cop einen Mitspieler zu jagen

  • Summary: Spieleinfos Entwickler: Electronic Arts Publisher: Electronic Arts Spieleranzahl: 1-2 Genre: Rennspiel Anschalten, Gas geben, und Spass haben... kurz Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2. Spielinhalt: Wie bei allen EA Spielen, kommt am Anfang immer das EA Zeichen. Danach geht es dann zu einem fetten Intro. Das Intro ist komplett Animiert aber sieht so was von echt aus... Hut ab. Danach wird ein Profil angefertigt, und ihr könnt dann schon gleich mit dem Spiel beginnen.
  • Pros: schicke Grafik
  • Cons: dürftiges Schadensmodell
