Summary: Bought this on a whim to fill the racing game whole in my heart, but was quick to learn this wasn't the racing game I was looking for. Still retains the 'acrade'-y feel Need for Speed always had. Gameplay wise you can take on the role of bad racer vs. good cop which essentially boils down to driving faster than cops or driving faster than the bad guys. There are a few unique twists for each side but nothing to write home about.
Summary: when it comes to games, I Only play Need For Speed. I got hooked on them back in the days when the 1st one had the R&T add on them. Anyways, what I'm trying to say is that I play absolutely nothing else. So when I heard that HP2 was comin out I was more than pumped, and the release date came and I was impressed at the new additions in the lineup like the new Lambo and da Carrera GT, however, when i started the tournament..
Summary: I've been an avid fan of the Need for Speed series since the beginning. When I saw this bundle being released, I was excited... finally, a chance to play the old classics like NFS II again (as my old version of NFS II didn't seem to run well under a modern operating system). Upon opening the box, I found five discs for all five games, and a small installation booklet.
Summary: I have played nfs 2 and up and I would say after three they lost there momentum. The graffics there are no better, but where is the ability to jump cliffs with the car, and hide behind the fence at the gas station. If you want a cool game expirence get Need for Speed 3, they lack some graffics but make it up with the ability to jump off a cliff and land on the police.
Excerpt: "I bought the Need For Speed: High Stakes on budget for £9.99 from Game, at this price I wasn't expecting anything amazing & I know it's a fairly old game (couple of years). I used to have the original on my playstation & it was really good fun, it was different from most other racing games & not many arcade games could challange it. This version was a bit of a let down though, not much seems to have been done to improved the game since the original. There's ...
Pros: Nice 'real' cars, good(ish) damage model, cheap, quite good AI
Summary: Nachdem ich vor Jahren schon den Vorgänger das Original Need for Speed Most Wanted gespielt habe, entschloss ich mich auch dieses Spiel zu kaufen in der Hoffnung einen ähnlichen Spielspaß zu haben. Außerdem bin ich leidenschaftlicher Rennspiel Fan, sodass ich es auch sehr gut mit anderen Rennspiele(Forza, Gran Turismo, Shift 2, NFS the Run, Motor Storm) vergleichen kann.Aber Vorsicht: Zuerst klappt die Installation natürlich reibungslos, wie auch nicht anders zu...
Excerpt: Racingspel från 1998 Spelidé Som de flesta spelen i denna serien av spel ”Need for Speed” så får man möjligheten att köra riktigt snabba bilar antingen i en tävling eller på en vanlig väg där polisen kan jaga en och det gäller att se upp för dom. Spelet kom ut 3 år efter det första spelet. Grafik, Ljud och Kontroll Skall vi jämföra detta spelet med det första i serien som kom ut 3 år tidigare så är det som natt och dag.
Pros: Hyfsad fartkänsla fortfarande, enkelt att styra
Cons: Grafiken har åldrats, spelidén är lite så där
