Summary: Review for Xbox 360 edition of Hot Pursuit: This game is just plain awful. You buy a race game with cops in it to outrun the cops. There is very little of that! The driving mechanic is terrible, as is the pacing.
Summary: Love the NFS series but skip this title. The difficulty level is rediculous coming from someone who has completed most of the NFS titles without trouble. I find myself turning off the game infuriated every day because I played the same race for 2 hours with zero progress.
Summary: This is really frustrating. I dont even know why they released this game. The game for Xbox and PS3 was created by Criterion Games, the famed game designer of the Burnout series. They are wonderful and made an incredible game.
Summary: The graphics are so horrable. Nothing like the commercials on tv or the internet. What the HELL !!!! I should contact the makers of this game and tell them I want my money back. DO NOT BUY THE Wii version of this game.
Summary: Ive noticed a trend in Game development recently, most definable by GTA4(PS3-360) and GTA: San Andreas(PS2). That is, an over-emphasis of graphics at a massive cost to everything else.
Pros: Nice graphics.
Cons: Buggy Crash physics are a joke. So are crash visuals. The audio tweak is kinda cool. Concepts are NOT new. Every previous NFS hot Pursuit/Most Wanted game had cops, choppers and Spike strips since coming to PS2 (I don't remember further back.) NO CUSTOMIZING??? Since when does NFS lack customizin...
Summary: Poor graphics, poor control and not very fun. I thought it would work with the Logitech wheel but it does not. The camera views are poor no in car camera view. So your racing looking at the car not in it. That really stinks.
Summary: As I fear is a trend that will only continue, this game requires you to enter a pass code to activate online features - including all online multiplayer modes. At 800 POINTS, this should significantly affect the decision to buy a copy second hand.
Summary: It's pretty good for the first hour or so, untill the rubber band A.I. makes you want to RIP YOUR OWN FACE OFF AND FLUSH IT WITH ALONG WITH THE GAME. Too easy. Too boring. No online free-roam. The handling on the cars is actually pretty good though.
Cynical money grabbing cash in ruins otherwise good game

Summary: The main thing that lets this game down massively is the lack of offline multiplayer AND the fact that you need a NFS pass to be able to play online, an abhorrent attempt by EA to cash in on anyone buying the game second hand or renting the game making them pay 800ms points ONTOP of the Xbox Gold...
