Well done arcade racer, but you can take cops out.

Summary: Parents need to know that Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is an illegal street racing game that encourages you to win races by any means necessary -- this includes smashing into cars, using weapons (like an EMP blast), or forcing others off the road to crash. The crash sequences are overly dramatic -- including slow-motion camera angles that sensationalize the smash -- and gamers will see words on the screen such as "Wrecked Cop" and receive a "bounty" (reward) based on their...
Summary: To be honest, I haven’t even played a Need for Speed game since the original Hot Pursuit , so I probably missed out on a lot of great racing action, but this game really brought me back to time I spent in late high-school and early college playing through the original. Running from the cops in the hot pursuit mode is exhilarating and chasing the bastards down as the cops is just as fun and you really feel a sense of accomplishment when you take down other players online.
Summary: Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit on Wii is a very poor excuse for a racer that feels like a slap in the face compared to its PS3/Xbox 360 cousin. Taking the game in a different direction is fine, but not a single thing here feels as if it was given the proper time and care needed to live up to its potential, let alone surpass last year's game. Instead, it's just a boxy, ugly car crash.
Excerpt: Need for Speed Hot Pursuit va vous permettre de vivre des poursuites sensationnelles, à pleine vitesse, avec la possibilité de jouer pendant toute une carrière le rôle du policier ou celui du pilote, en solo ou en ligne. Arrestations à pleine vitesse, évasions spectaculaires, tout est...
Conclusion: Thus, the new Hot Pursuit manages to split the fans of the series once more: those that love the arcade style and the cops races and those that already hate it just because it’s arcade, has no manual gear, no split screen, not even AA without special driver tweaks. It’s true that it’s a decent Need for Speed, but it’s a far cry from what it could have been.
Licensed cars and soundtrack,
Racer or cop, your choice,
The speed feeling
Disappointing damage model,
Many (essential) elements missing from single and multiplayer,
Weak AI that tries to compensate through cheating
Conclusion: Astfel, noul Hot Pursuit reuşeşte încă o dată să împartă fanii seriei în două tabere: cei care îl adoră pentru stilul arcade şi au acum posibilitatea de a se lupta cu poliţia şi cei care deja l-au aruncat la coş tocmai pentru că este prea arcade, nu are nici măcar cutie manuală de viteze, nici split screen, nici AA fără ajutorul unor drivere speciale pentru o grafică mai finuţă.
Grafică reuşită, în mare parte,
Maşini licenţiate foarte bine modelate,
Senzaţia de viteză,
Vitezoman sau poliţist, la alegere
AI prea puţin dezvoltat, ce compensează prin trişare,
Elemente (esenţiale) lipsă din single şi multiplayer,
Modelare dezamăgitoare a damage-ului
