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

Common Sense Media

  • 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: 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.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit English Review

30 March 2011
  • Excerpt: I don’t know about you, but when I think about the golden age of gaming about 10-15 years ago, I’d kind of liked if it stayed like back then. True, there weren’t so many games which shouted “play me, play me” from the store shelf; but almost everything on the market offered the maximum possible at that age’s technology level: consistent single-player gameplay and multiplayer with all options available: LAN, online, Split Screen where it fitted the genre, versus and...
  • Pros: Good graphics, Licensed cars and soundtrack, Racer or cop, your choice, The speed feeling
  • Cons: Disappointing damage model, Many (essential) elements missing from single and multiplayer, Weak AI that tries to compensate through cheating

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Review

Nintendo-Online
11 February 2011
  • Summary: Woran erkennt man, wenn ein Vertrieb nicht mehr allzu viel Vertrauen in die Spieleserie steckt, die seit Jahrzehnten die Zockerherzen weltweit verzückt, zuletzt aber nur noch einen Schatten seiner selbst darstellte? Im Falle der „Need for Speed“-Reihe wird dies dadurch deutlich, dass Electronic Arts kurzerhand das Entwicklerstudio Criterion Games aufgekauft hat, das sich mit „Burnout“ einen Namen machte, und für den neuesten Ableger engagierte.

  • Conclusion: Apesar de não ser o pior jogo de corrida do Wii, "Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit" peca por não apresentar uma modalidade mais consistente envolvendo os policiais. O sistema de modificações do carro não interfere em nada, e no fim das contas o game não consegue prender a atenção dos fãs do gênero - ainda mais daqueles que gostam de "passar" as marchas - de maneira satisfatória.
