A franchise way past its prime.
9 July 2012
Summary: Let me start out by saying that I've been playing NFS games for a long time. Since the days of Underground until Hot Pursuit. Criterion makes great games but this isn't one of them. It's not a bad game, it's just a NFS title should be something more. You can either play as cop or racer. There's a world map with events labeled on them and a free roam mode. That's about it. There's nothing else in the game. No story mode, nothing. No customization other than paint colors.
Summary: the picture might have led you to believe it was the standard edition, hell you might not even have known there was a red greatest hits edition, but that's what theyre going to send you, probably not a big deal. also if youre not wild about need for speed or burnout it's probably not going to do much for you either.
Summary: The driving dynamics of this game is fake and unrealistic. In fact the whole premise and story line is also a joke. And on that note the graphics is not as good as in GT5... and the game is unplayable and uncontrollable with the G27, whereas in the GT5 it is a joy to drive. Save your money. Get something else. If you want police car chase you can try Midnight Club LA or something else.
Summary: I skipped this one a while back and played the run which was okay. I bought this used and played for all of 3 hours before returning it back to the store. The gameplay was horrible. No plot to the races you can't customize cars, and there is no reverse in a driving game?!? You might as well forget about the free roam because it is garbage. level up get a car, level up again get another car but all the cars handle the same! Save yourself time just skip this one!!!
Summary: The game is nice but I need to pay an extra $10 to play online since the person that use that game before me use to code. For such expensive item I was expecting to have to online code for free.
Summary: With all do respect, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit was a complete and total waste of money. It is the dumbed-down red-headed-step-child of MOST WANTED with the beauty of CRITERION graphics and inovative online features being its ONLY plus side. The free roaming is a solid bore, and the online action does not have a re-play value with the only DLC being other cars (oooh, other cars, big woop).
Still No Split Screen Multi-player, Open World No Cops

Summary: I was disappointed to find out once i received the item that this game did not include an offline multi-player. I haven't bought a Need for Speed game since Carbon because of the same reason....or most games out on the market today, i might add. When Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit's previews released I was very excited for its release and automatically assumed it would be just like Hot Pursuit 2 from years ago, with split screen racing, as well as, a be the cop mode against...
Summary: I played the old need for speed hot pursuit (and other NFS's) from the late 90's. This feels like pretty much the same thing, except with better environmental graphics. I find that very disapointing. It's like they got lazy are basically used the same code. the crashing is not that good (still). when y ou consider 12 or so years has passed, the game is little changed. do't get me wrong, it's still fun, of course.
Summary: I bought this game largely because several sites were saying that at E3 the game was being demoed in 3D and people on the company's official twitter page announced the game would have 3d TV support. After playing the demo on Xbox360, I figured it was cool ehough to be GREAT in 3d. I knew, from the sounds of things, that there would be a bit of a wait for the 3d patch, but it would be worth it in the end and I bought the game for PS3 (which supports 3d output to new...
