Need for Speed Hot Pursuit (X360) Review
Andy Ruffell / 7 years ago
With petrol heads and console freaks around the world anticipating the release of the long awaited Gran Turismo 5 people could be forgiven for forgetting all about the latest title in the Need For Speed series, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit. After all, the past few years have proven rather difficult for the NFS name following release of a number of disappointing follow-ups to the much loved Need For Speed: Underground. The bad run of form saw a turnaround last year with the release of NFS: Shift and Electronic Arts are keen to show the world that it wasn’t a one off.
In order to do that they turned to world renowned UK studio Criterion Games. They are the developers are behind one of EA’s previous driving series, Burnout. The most recent title in that franchise “Burnout Paradise” is one of the most easily accessible arcade racing games and includes some of the best crashes ever depicted in virtual form so it will be interesting to see what they bring to the latest Need for Speed.
