    Overall, my first impressions of this remaster is a good one and it just keeps getting better the more I play it. I have streamed it a couple of times not because tons of people have been watching but simply because I want to share my love for the game with others.

    Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered is a good reissue of one of the best Need for Speed ever made.

    Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered isn’t going to set the world on fire. However, it’s important to remember the dumpster fire that this franchise has been languishing in for the last decade. If a boringly good remaster is what it takes to get us back to the series I grew up with, I’ll more than take it. Hopefully, Criterion uses this momentum to deliver something that finally puts Need for Speed back on the map.

    A bit aged in some respects, but perfect in others, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered is still, after a decade, a great racing game with a spicy Burnout flavour.

    Minimal remaster that changes almost nothing, doesn't look dewy fresh, but is still as much fun today as it was in 2010.

    Ten after its initial release, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is still a really good game, and the few improvements Stellar Entertainment has brought to refresh it a bit. Nervous, easy to learn and rather dense thanks to the addition of DLC, the title fits without much difficulty in a market where purely arcade racing games are rare, despite an aging general structure.

    This remastered edition of 2010's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit shows how aged the game has become. The graphics are slightly better, but the driving and missions truly remain all those years back.

    Its sadly just a lazy glorified port of the original from 10 years ago. Its still a good game (Thats why I dont give it a 0) but in someIts sadly just a lazy glorified port of the original from 10 years ago. Its still a good game (Thats why I dont give it a 0) but in some places the game has even been made worse graphical wise. I would recommend you to get the original for 10 bucks on steam than this cash grab from EA. Expand

    Poor optimized. I have a RTX 2080 and it keeps stuttering even with graphics on low. Graphics are a little better than original. I wasted likePoor optimized. I have a RTX 2080 and it keeps stuttering even with graphics on low. Graphics are a little better than original. I wasted like 1 hour solving a controller issue where there was a message in the screen saying that my controller was not supported. -_-
    I don't mind the arcade gameplay but the stuttering is too much annoying, it breaks even the music!!! Game is bad. I got it for free but will never play it because it's just annoying to play in the current state. I don't even believe they will ever fixed it. Waste of money for someone that paid for it.

    I must say that original one was a great game and I really enjoyed it but the remastered version is nothing but a **** cash grab. TheyI must say that original one was a great game and I really enjoyed it but the remastered version is nothing but a **** cash grab. They could've remade Most Wanted 2005 but nah let's release lazy remaster of 10 year old game that still looks beautiful and demand 35$ when the original (that only didn't have DLCs and multiplayer) has cost definitely less.
