    From the roar of the engines, the feel of the road beneath your tires to the thumping soundtrack, Hot Pursuit is a seriously hard game to ignore or put back down.

    Despite the outlandish oil puddles and EMP blasts, switching between between criminal and cop has never been so fun.

    Sit back and unleash tough justice on illegal racing with supercars turned police cars; Hot Pursuit is engaging until the end.

    Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is a Burnout-inspired racer that's a lot of fun, even if it's not online.

    Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is a nice racing game, that provides hours of entertainment thanks to a good number of missions. However, the tilt controls seem to be a little inaccurate when it comes to rapidly avoid obstacles and perform powerslides, while there are several things missing from the previous episodes, like car tuning and an online multiplayer mode.

    I'm totally bewildered as to why they didn't include online multiplayer, why they didn't add some more control options, and why they decided to take customization out.

    A very fun moblie edition of one of the best racing games introduced. I had so much fun with the console version and almost as much fun on the moblie edition. I recommend it. Expand

    Not having played the PC Version of "Need for Speed", I thought that "Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit" was pretty decent. It has some cool animation and I just love crashing the hell out of other cars. Expand

    Although not as sophisticated as its big NFS brothers running on PC and consoles, this is an addictive game that took me back to the days of NFS III (the first Hot Pursuit concept). Good controls, nice graphics, and hours of fun driving. Expand

    Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is pretty good. It has 48 events spread over two careers, Cops to take down the racers, and the racers running from the cops. Each career has 3 different power-ups to help out, and fifteen different ranks. Ranks are earned by earning bounty by completing events. Each rank unlocks a new car. The game very rarely has a bit of lag, but it can completely screw you up. The graphics are good, the controls work fine, and the gameplay is differed enough to not get boring. If you want to play a racing game on the IPod, this is a good one. Expand
