    Pros: i like the matrix camera shots. i like being chased by the cops. i like the variety in cars and tracks. Cons: framerate? strike one. graphics? strike two. adrenaline rush ditching the cops on the final lap? strike three. rant: its called hot pursuit. why do the cops give up so easily? *sigh*

    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.
