I like my racing games, and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is no exception; I love it! You certainly feel the sheer speed and power of the licensed motors you’re driving and if anything, it certainly feels a lot faster than Burnout Paradise if that’s at all possible.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit has been two years in development by Criterion Games, the developers of the Burnout series. Whilst this latest title in the Need for Speed series is a homage of sorts to 3DO’s original Need for Speed series in the late 90s, the game also evokes memories of Burnout 2: Point of Impact for me. It really does beg the question then: where does Need for Speed begin, and Burnout end?
