Summary: Well . . . I had Hot Pursuit 2 on PS2 some years ago, until console broke.Then got an old Xbox, then upgraded to an XBox 360. Still with fond memories of this game; I desided to buy this again.Only works on original Xbox, but boy oh boy, I wasn't disappointed at all. All those lovely memories flooded back, when I used to spend day after day stuck in front of the TV thrashing whatever super car you were lucky enough to be granted around sumptuous various world roads.
Summary: Being a huge fan of the NFS range I have all of them since the number one back in the day. I bought this on the PS2 and was really impressed, as always with the EA boys they have put in time and effort into this title. The game has great sound which you wont fins in GT4 for example, the sounds of the engines are not, and have never been man made, they are recorded sounds and edited.
Summary: This is adrenalin pumping driving at its finest. Firstly, the graphics are awsome with beautifully rendered cars and fantastic textured scenery. Electronic arts have been making racing games for quite some time, so there is no reason why they shouldn't make good use of the Xbox's hardware. Luckily, in this case they have.
Summary: I was wary about geeting this Xbox version of Need for Speed as various reviews I'd read all say the PS2 version was better (which is unusual as the Xbox version of a multiformat release like this one is often the best in terms of graphics/sound and/or content eg.Spiderman,Turok, Colin McRae, Medal of Honour et al.) I've played the PS2 version so was quite harsh in judging the Xbox version against its PS2's counterpart.
