Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit is pure over-the-top driving entertainment. The cars and environments are gorgeous, the crashes are spectacular, and the new Autolog feature breathes new life into the time-honored tradition of video game competition among friends. The single-player races can become somewhat repetitive and there are some presentation issues, but overall, Hot Pursuit is a blast. If you're looking for a high-octane racer that grabs on tight but doesn't take itself too seriously, give this one a shot.

Though the sim-style of racing has gained exponentially in popularity, I would challenge even the most hardened simulation elitist to give this title a try and not crack a smile. Sure, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit has plenty of over-the-top action and some serious high-speed hi-jinks that wouldn't fly in any other series, but the game is plenty of fun, and certainly worth the time of any fan of the automotive genre. Plus, any game that makes the sound of cop sirens feel exhilarating instead of dreadful is bound to be a good time!

They’ve produced one of the simplest, yet endlessly engrossing racers of the generation, which is all down to their superb ability to balance how each race plays out. The sense of speed will have fans harking back to Burnout, and the cop chases steal the show by some way. At a time where a certain simulation racing game decided to launch itself, Hot Pursuit should be seen as an antidote for Sony’s realistic series. Take too much of it though, and you may become addicted.
