Summary: I got this because I had Hot Pursuit 2 2002 and wanted something similar. It has some annoying stuff, like the cutscenes and such. The cars automatically help you drift, and with a keyboard and even somewhat with an analog throttle (from Droidpad) the acceleration at low speeds is too sudden- your tires squeal. The handbrake is the spin-out-of-control-if-you-even-think-about-turning machine.
Summary: I don't know why but I still play this game. It's fun to play and once the controller is mastered handling the car is just fuuuuun. I've unlocked everything but I refuse to remove it from my pc.
Summary: i first got this game for Christmas in 2004 with my original Xbox when i was 8, i loved this game ever since. this is the game that got me into cars (im 17 now). but playing a game that only goes to 480p while playing on a 1080p tv did not look good. so when i got my lenovo laptop with windows 7 (because 8 sucks) with an i5, and 8gigs of ram i decided to get it on pc because it would look better.
Summary: Getting this game was a throwback to my Gamecube days. I remember how much I loved playing this game, and I'm very happy to have gotten this for such a low price. I must say, though, I'm disappointed that this isn't as elaborate as the PS2 version. Also, there's only 2-player multiplayer. Besides that, though, this challenging game will keep you entertained for a long time and evoke great feelings of nostalgia (if you grew up with the game, that is).
