    Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 was one of the best Need for Speed games. It featured many cars that are rare to be in the Need for Speed series like the McLaren F1, the McLaren F1 LM, the Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR, the Ferrari F50, the Ferrari 550 Barchetta, the Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, the Ferrari 360 Spider, the BMW Z8, and others. Plus, the instant replays were hilarious when you did like 18 barrel rolls and you were wondering if the whiplash was intense enough to kill you. Speaking of intense, one the the most outrageously intense parts was when the cops were throwing bombs and spike strips at you while you were trying to race against everyone. On top of all that, you could be the cop and arrest racers! This game is composed of great memories, intense scenes, awesome cars, and rare amazing features. Expand

  1. Packs in lots of game play and replay value, with dozens of challenges set in beautiful locations. [Nov 2002, p.219]
  2. With plenty of racing challenges it should have a decent amount of longevity but their repetitive nature might grate for some.
  3. The sluggish pace may be a bit too much for gamers who need a fast and furious racing game, but those with the patience to get past the speed issue will find a good arcade-style racer with some great ideas.
