Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 User Reviews


Cops and Robbers

The good:

-Nice selection of cars
-Levels are deep and have many shortcuts
-Action is intense, cars are realistic

The bad:

-Graphics are pretty mediocre
-Cops and other cars have the dumbest AIs
-Real-time damage is bad


NFSHP, which is about the 7th or 8th installment in the NFS franchise, maintains the traditional NFS fun and action. Being the first port to the XBox, it doesn't fully utilize the sound, graphics, or other features of the Xbox well, but thats alright. The cars are all exotics, including the Lambo Murcielago, Ferrari F50, and even the McLaren F1. What was also impressive was how you could drive many different cop cars, as well as NFS versions of every car. The levels were big and had many shortcuts, and the scenery was alright, not horrible enough to be distracting. The one thing that annoye...


Decent but not quite as good as the Playstation 2 version

The good:

Hot Pursuit

Good stage designs

The graphics ain't too bad

Some cars can go over 200 miles per hour

You can play as the Police

The bad:

The graphics could still use some work (When compared to the Playstation 2 version)

Unlike the PS2 version you lose in Hot Pursuit if you get stopped once


Difficulty: Hard

Decent racing game. Probably one of the best for the GameCube. I am glad the Playstation 2 version got rid of it's flaws though. You get to play as the cops in Hot Pursuit in this game too!

I reccomend this game. But if you have a Playstation2 then I reccomend the Playstation 2 version to all racing game fans. Buy it when you can or get enough money.

I rate this game a 4/5 (8/10). Writing this review makes me want to play this game again. Time to play.


Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 Review by MLD


I enjoyed NFS: Hot Pursuit for the Playstation when it came out. And when I heard about a sequel I was eager to play it. And it didn't disappoint me, except for the computer's way of racing. Which really isn't too bad until you get to the last levels of the game. I would of liked NFS: Underground, except for the street racing cars that are in the game turn me off. I didn't like the movie 'Fast and the Furious' and Underground has those types of cars in it. I'm glad that Hot Pursuit 2 has the older style race cars and some of the newer stylish cars as well.

This game hits...


Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2

The good:

The great graphics, the hot cars you get to race as, the challenging opponents, a great selection race tracks to choose from and to unlock, reasonable price, that's probably about it.

The bad:

Back-up cops tend to "warp" ahead when falling behind, and cops get real hard to lose.


Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2's a great game to play. With great rock tunes to get you pedalling to the medal, and the hottest cars on the globe the race in, this is almost a dream come true. The grpahics have improved drastically, everything looks stunningly real. The opponents put up more of a fight, and can really kick your ass if you don't watch yourself. You also gotta watch your back since there are cops in this game. The game is pretty much G so I don't see any hesitance to buy the game. Just be careful when your temper flares if you lose a race. The effort may be hard but wo...


Needs Work

The good:

Some good graphics and playability

The bad:

Too many menus,not enough cars,no garage,very few tracks,no oval or straight track,no track designer, police in Mediterranean sound like from Dukes of Hazzard, some video bugs.


Not much else to say, EA could have some great games if they would just start listening to us who buy and use them. I for one have bought my last EA racing game till I see some long overdue improvements.


Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 (the best drivibg game ver)

The good:

. Great selection of cars
. Great tracks
. Good graphics
. Good multiplayer
. A lot to unlock
. Amazing handling

The bad:

. Maybe not enough cars
. erm........


Some people say this game is well behind Gran Turismo 3. GT3 is a fantastic game, which is difficult to beat, but NFS2 does!
The handling of the cars are inch-perfect, with amazing slides around corners. Damaging your car can affect the handling though, and that can be annoying when your are trying to get away from a gang of cops, as they drop bombs from helicopters, and put spike-stripes down. You can get booked, and if you get caught 3 times by the police, you get 'busted', and you have to retire from the race!
The graphics are pretty good, clean, but a bit...chuggy. The cars lo...
