The cars looked stunning. The scenery is breath-taking. The physics and effects are spot on… it all complements nicely in a very driven and energized driving experience.
Cars can be customized to a degree and the map is not a separate series of racing events but rather a unified, drivable environment.
Gameplay is fun and engaging. Choose from a Career Mode where you choose to be a Cop or Racer. Autolog helps you track your friend’s racing times, so that you are always one button away from challenging your friends to a race. In Multiplayer mode, Autolog tracks the your friend’s racing activities and allows you to race in the same Campaign maps but with thousands of other racers.
Just for kicks, you can freely drive any car in your collection without
The folks at Criterion Games really nailed the sound in Hot Pursuit. From the shrill of a Lamborghini to the low rumble of a Camaro, the puppies in this race certainly feel and sound like the real deal.
There are several different Car packs that one can buy. In addition, many extra cars can be purchased separately. There are also plenty of new maps and new Racing events that can be separately purchased.
All the races in the Career Mode can be replayed and the fact that you can always challenge your friend’s racing times bring a new level of competition that is sure to last for a long time.l
The menus are organized… but the Career layout is a tad confusing. The main menu is clear and works well… of course, although minor gripes, the game could benefit from a clearer menu layout…
As far as actual gameplay, Hot Pursuit does a great job of laying out the Map, Accelerator Meter and other essential components of the racing experience.
We also have problems with the annoying hospital-alarm intro music… and the cheesy music that unfortunately accompanies many of the racing events.
You can also toggle the camera or change camera views… in general, the game itself is slick and well presented…
