Nice Racing Game

Summary: It doesn't have that need for speed feel, but for a racing game it is pretty exceptional. The graphics are nice and the gameplay is fun but after a while it gets boring. Another thing is that they do have a pretty nice car collection so you'll have a lot of cars to choose from.
Summary: Chasing speeders, being chased, smashing cars, laying spike strips, calling in roadblocks, intense action that keeps you on your toes. This game is fun! I like playing it and even WATCHING IT!
Summary: Don't buy this game if you expect something like Most Wanted (PS2), ProStreet, or Underground. The game itself is cool, but the fact that you can't customize your cars sucks. They tried hard with this game but its kinda dissapointing. So far Need for speed its going down. Same thing with the New Most Wanted you can't customize or play in Split Screen. Only reason I'm playing this game its because I spent $20 box in it.
Summary: If you have ever played Hot Pursuit 2 for ps2, you must have realized a few key features it went up and down from. The graphics look great, love how they added certain weather options. (although they should've added snow). Multiplayer is pretty fun, like how they added categories of cars so it's fairer for people who don't have the best cars. Now the downside from Hot Pursuit 2. There is no split screen, so you can't play with your friends if they come over.
Summary: Pretty great overall. Until you get to be a cop in Hot Pursuit. the Traffic acts unreal. If you see a guy going 200 mph and a cop with sirens going just behind them what would you do. You would get the heck of the road. Do these civilians do that? No. Instead the game has you run straight into them and lose the suspect. While racer the cops are kinda pathetic. Great graphics and animations with a good career mode.
Summary: You pick a race and are left to figure out the controls by yourself. It took my a minute to figure out how to accelerate (R2) drifting is also confusing, you tap not hold (L2) which is also the brake. (L1) is to change the songs (R1) is to change your view Left stick move arrows for weapons (If available) (X) for nitro, and square to turn around. You get the greatest hits edition so the case will be red. The game would be better if there was more HOT PURSUIT.
Summary: As a huge fan of the Burnout series, I was happy to hear that Criterion was working on the next Need For Speed game, because the team hasn't come out with a Burnout game since God knows when. I was also a big fan of Hot Pursuit 2 for the PS2, so really what could go wrong here? And overall this game did not disappoint. Crazy crashing, high speed, expensive car racing. What caught me off guard was how absolutely gorgeous this game is.
Summary: For what seems like the longest time, Need for Speed was infamous for its cheezy storyline and cutscenes. But the guys at EA semed to finally get it through their heads that the storylines were a mistake. The basic premise of Hot Pursuit is simple: shut up and drive. Graphics are finally starting to get close to Gran Turismo levels and damage is awesome thanks to influence from Criterion's hit Burnout Paradise.
