What's wrong with installation by disk

BIN SUN, Amazon
11 April 2013
  • Summary: I installed the game successfully and registered it by the correct serial number on the instruction book. But it kept asking me to activate by entering the serial number each time I run the game. So, I could not play the game at all. I posted my problem to EA forums for the help, and luckily they are dealing with it. This problem seems to be happened by dick installation because I saw someone had the same problem.

... Not fun

  • Summary: This game is not very entertaining after a while. It's very repetitive and boring after 2 hours of playing it.

Ugh

Andrew, Amazon
10 July 2012
  • Summary: I've been playing NFS since the second one on my Voodoo graphics card, and this game just seems like an abomination of what was the original NFS III HP. The game is overall way too arcade like, and not realistic at all. I know, the NFS series and arcade style driving are like Jack and Jill but maybe I've played too much NFS Shift. This game just made me go "ugh". The controls are terrible and feel like you're driving in mud. Drive over a spike strip?

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit pain

Ron Crowell, Amazon
24 April 2011
  • Summary: It's not a bad game if you take out the EA crap, criterion crap, slow mo, camera shot, cut scene, 10 second "Crash" screens, cinematic and so on.I got board after an hour and uninstalled the game. I am starting to see this in all games and it's just a waste of money. Why not let us hit esc to bypass the unwanted crap.my advices don't buy games until you've tried them first.as for me i'm going back to picking up games the old way "bittorrent"

a direct port from console versions, and little more

Eric Whitney, Amazon
17 November 2010
  • Summary: Like another reviewer, I too really wanted to like this game... I've been an avid Need for Speed fan for 15 years, and was hopeful that this could bring back the quality that's been lacking in the series for a bit. The reviews for the PS3 version came out first, and showed this game to be excellent. However, the PC version feels very much like an after-thought.

Another old game That didn't really run well...

Garrett Yarbrough, Amazon
5 January 2010
  • Summary: Again another old game that didn't run well under Win xp. I did manage to get it running a few times with freezes and sluggish fps. Most of these older games ran under Glide and not Direct X. Problem the reason it didn't work.

NO COP???

Amazon Customer, Amazon
19 July 2001
  • Summary: High Stakes is definately a better game... If you enjoy being a cop against the computer, then go for this one.. if your thinking of becoming a speed demon then go for this. I also recomend renting it first.. graphics / sound suck.

Decent driving game. No big whoop.

Jeremy, Amazon
21 February 2000
  • Summary: Need For Speed III Hot Pursuit isn't one of the better looking driving games around. The screen shots look far sexier than the actual gameplay. The driving is really floaty and bogus. The sound effects aren't anything special either. On the upside, pursuit mode is a blast. Unlike GT Interactive's Driver, the cops in NFS3 use intelligent strategy, boxing in the player with multiple units, or forcing him off the road rather than simply ramming with brute force.

  • Excerpt: This game could have been very good. It has all the right ingredients. It's fun, fast, furious and the graphics are great. So what's wrong I hear you ask? Two things really : The first is that try as I might I couldn't get the cars to bend, break or even scratch. This should be part of the fun of such games. You hit things and your car gets damaged, goes slower and eventually stops in a big cloud of smoke. No so here.

  • Excerpt: I love driving games. I have the whole setup, steering wheel, larger monitor, 3D sound etc... However, there are very few driving games out there that can really cut it. GP Legends, Rally Championship, Colin McRae and the soon to be released GP3.As you can see these are all specific driving games, based around sports. When it comes to arcade style driving games I can't think of any that are any good at all. Need 4 Speed III is another attempt that fails.
