Holy fuck, I hope they redo hot pursuit 2
They were serious about rebooting the NFS franchise
if they take the love and care for it like they do burnout and reboot to Hot Pursuit days this is going to be fucking epic
Need For Speed: Burnout Edition
FUCK i might actually enjoy a need for speed game again for the first time since like 2001
in for hp redux
@ people hating NFS one day and bowing down to it the next.
As a series NFS was fucking awesome until underground then it started going downhill....theres no denying that.
Ea ran that shit into the ground expecting people to pay for shit that was essentially the same thing over again.
You know criterion are going to bring back the life to the series and I for one cant wait.
for what it's worth i have bowed down to every NFS iteration
I've never really been into racers. I liked GT 1 & 2 and Forza 1, but that's about it. Then I tried Burnout Paradise. Fuck my bellybutton and call me little Sally. Shit is amazing. So I'll be looking forward to this.
i would say the only one i didnt really like was Pro Street, the rest were atleast somewhat entertaining and a decent rental.
HOT PURSUIT HD
i hated underground / underground 2.
After that though the games seem just fine to me, love carbon and most wanted, playing through undercover now. Never got into pro-street yet, i played for a few seconds on someone elses game and didn't like the way the cars handled.
Undercover is pretty cool, but hard as fuck towards the end, and the game progresses so quickly you don't have time to build up the cash you need for the cars you'll definably need to beat the challengers
sometimes i hate knowing so much about NFS becasue right now i wanna tell you your stupid for liking most wanted becasue the was the tip in scales of the downfall of NFS. i understand that you probably liked the premis and the fact that the cop chases came back...
however on when development start for most wanted the senior designer changed and when the new guy came in he said that he wanted "the cars to be able to flip over" so the entire game engine was scraped. underground forgot what Need For Speed was but at least it played well. so the dev team had less then a year to make a new engine and it came out like shit, Most Wanted had the absolute worst game engine out of all the nfs games it was so glitchy and buggy it wasn't even funny and the part that pissed me off the most was, i was thinkn "oh sweet open world cop chases thats gonna be fun" then i tried to do a reverse 180.. and the game had no idea what i was tryn to do... it did it but not with out skipping and sliding speaking of sliding every car in Most Wanted was AWD with tires made of Ice apparently.. and the only way to get more traction was to hit the nitrous ...
if they continued to carry forward the Hot Pursuit game engine past underground into most wanted it would have been a pretty good game, but the game engine just ruined the experience for me. and i can only hope that when Criterion goes to make the new game engine they look back on Hot Pursuit 2.
More of an indication that this generation lacks originality.
could be cool. I liked hot pursuit
never really got into need for speed or burnout....more of a midnight club fan......but i may giv it a try and go get the lastest one...........
I can see where you're coming from.
But I did genuinely enjoy the cop chases, and unlike carbon they actually mean something towards the game. Your total bounty and what-not you need in order to race the next guy, instead of just completing races to get to the next guy.
It's been a good while since I last played most wanted, so I can't recall the physics of the game that well, but I don't remember ever flipping my car Most wanted is the most cop-intensive game of the batch, and it's fun because getting higher bounty counts for something. In carbon it doesn't matter at all and the cops are just annoying as hell.
I still stand by the fact that underground sucked ass as did its sequels. It never felt like driving the car, it always felt like pushing left or right just changed which lane the car drove in.
Need For Burnouts
Would love another game along the lines of Porsche unleashed... By far my favourite NFS game.
I've played Hot Pursuits on console and even on the PC and those games defined my teens.
When Underground came out (and the sequel) I gave them both a chance, they were a "little" fun. I want to say they were more distracting than anything. They didn't bring anything new to the table and got boring real fast.
When Most Wanted came out I took it as a "arcade" type racer. That game was played from start to finish just because it was fun getting chased, trying to get away from Rhino/Vette cops, running through roadblocks and have your adrenaline going for a good bit. It's been awhile since I experienced that in a game. Plus the game was beautiful at the time with how wide the city was.
I realized after I was done that I was playing a different version of Burnout
I'm hoping with the new series they'll go back to Hot Pursuit and do something great with it.
