A Reasonably Deep But Mindless Racer
14 March 2011
Summary: This game doesn't add anything new to the genre and is just a mash-up of Need for Speed and Burnout with a lil' Mario Kart thrown in. BUT... it is great fun to play and will keep you entertained for a few weeks. It is a good solid racing game with enough depth to keep you interested for a while, just don't expect anything revolutionary.
Summary: i decided to buy this game cause we have always loved need for speed but i didnt realize it was just a one player game...which is no fun especially when my wife also likes to play against me....so we were really disappointed when we couldnt play against each other..other than that little flaw i really liked it..
Summary: typical racing game. graphics are nothing to brag about but then again wii isn't big on graphics. other than that, it's the most mature racing game you'll find if you want to steer away from mariocart.
Summary: This game is fun, and the graphics are amazing, but wtf, there's no 2 player split screen? My wife and I sat down with our controllers ready to play and then we didn't see an option, so we looked on the back and it's only online... Damn it EA, why?
Summary: I pretty much only play first person shooters and racing games. I thought I'd give this new HOT PURSUIT series a try because it was created by the people behind the TAKEDOWN games. Hot Pursuit was always the coolest game from Need For Speed series, mix in the TAKEDOWN guys and I thought this would be an addictive game. I had been playing DIRT 2 to warm myself back up to racing games... in the week prior to receiving NFS:HP in the mail.
Summary: Most Wanted had a great story. Undercover had a great story. Carbon had an okay story. In each of these games you worked to unlock or buy cars, and then you learned to drive that car for a number of races in order to earn better, faster cars. In this game, you start getting super cars in the first couple of races. I don't think I've driven the same car in more than two races yet.
Summary: Graphics-87/Sound-92/Controls-80/Blast Force-71/Overall=82 It's painfully apparent that while fighting games will be the first to go, racing games will follow swiftly now finding themselves on the endangered species list. The legendary Need For Speed series has seen better days. The last good one was Most Wanted, and since then...blah, just a bunch of blah. Shift was so bad I was shocked to see they're making a sequel! Overall, the graphics here aren't bad.
Summary: A lover of racing games that include great carnage, and a huge fan of the BURNOUT series I decided to spend the $60. This game has amazing graphics and videos, but quickly turns into VERY REPETITIVE gameplay. Either run from the cops, or crash into racers as a cop to bust them. That's about it. I like the game, but over all I was VERY disappointed in it.
