      Very helpful



      A good racing game and nice attempt

      Back with more Gamecube racing. There's so many racing games availible on all formats these days that it's really hard to rise above the rest and not labour in the modecrity of the genre. Gran Turismo chose the realism approach and they stood out for it and the likes of Mario Kart went the arcade action route and made a name for itself. Unfortunatley there are many titles that sit somewhere in the middle and for me i've always felt that the "Need for Speed" franchise is one of those. This time we're with NFS Hot Pursuit.

      Another fast racer but with limited options

      Graphics - They look good and pretty slick, a very good looking game for the Gamecube and they choose realism over cartoon like cars.

      Gameplay - It's fast and relativley easy to pick up but I find it a little unresponsive,the cars don't steer well with the stick as well as you'd like them to.

      Sound - Excellent sound track, it seems racing games always have this dance/rock track behind them that really keep in touch with the flow and pace of the game.

      Longevtiy - Well theres' plenty of cars and tracks to play but I think this game could very well tire quickly.

      Overall - It's a good racing game but thats about it, doesn't do anything to make Need For Speed to stand out from the other racing crowd but theres not too much wrong with the game itself.

      Buy it if you want to but I wouldn't. At least not again.

      Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is an alright game on the gamecube. Although it is not as good as its Need for Speed Underground counterpart it will rivet the average gamer. If you or your friend is a diehard fan of Need for Speed or you have played Need for Speed Underground before do not buy this game.
      The gameplay is ok. The handling and controls are also ok. I highly reccomend you purchasing Need for Speed Underground or its sequel.
      Don't get me wrong. The police pursuits, roadblocks, helicopter chases and missions are fun but after a while it gets old. The tracks could do with some improvements also. Besides all of that the graphics are good. Gameplay is alright. I also like the variety of cars at your disposal once the entire game has been unlocked.
      As I said , if you want to buy it go ahead but if you want the real Need For Speed experience purchase Underground or Underground 2. They are much better.

  • Product Details

    Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 is an arcade racer that is packed with shortcuts, full-throttle power slides, and speeds reaching 200 mph. As with most racers, you apply the gas and brake with the A and B buttons respectively. You can also use the handbrake or initiate a controlled slide. At the beginning of each race you can choose either Automatic or Manual Transmission, but beginners should stick with auto at first.
