E3: NFS Hot Pursuit gameplay

E3: NFS Hot Pursuit gameplay

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit multiplayer mode is playable at EA's booth, and here is a 1vs1 cops vs robbers pursuit. No doubt, this is using the same engine as Burnout Paradise.
Update: Added a second video.

looks nice.. but these cat and mouse games always feel tedious.

Didnt realise it was an open world

Hmmm...Burnout + cops - cool crashes and car damage? Doesn't really do much for me. Really burned out on racing games lately. There has been such little innovation in the last 10 years in the genre. As much as I love open world games, they just don't seem to gel with racing games. Other than making a huge open world, what is this game doing that every other racing game hasn't done before it?

Better stick with Burnout P. If I want some cop chases with real cars I can just play Undercover.
Besides, I thought that LP-670 would have a chance of outrunning Reventon or at least keep it even.

Looks like a more decent game than any other NFS made in the last 5 years.

NFS most wanted was the last NFS game i was able to enjoy at all. Shift was decent but it was just far too close to the Forza 3 release to mean much to me.

I just don't think this series will be good again until they can figure out some kind of meaningful identity to give the franchise. Seems like every new year is a desperate attempt to turn it around but not enough dev time to make it work.

It does have crashes and damage but because they are using real cars the damage can only go so far.

I loved every second of NFSHP back in time so I want this one right now and EA can do one more thing, something Im waiting for for a long, long time. Bring bloody Road Rash back xD

"No doubt, this is using the same engine as Burnout Paradise"
Really? Paradise runs 60fps. This runs 30. Racing game in 30fps? Eeeeewwwww :(

Me personally love this retro idea. Hot Pursuit was my most favourite and for days played NFS ever. Add cool graphics, damage, cool new sounds and I have my favourite game updated for today standard. Great!

Hope its got a replay option at the end of a race so that i can relive the moments of the intense chases! Great game on PS2 back in the days and still is one of the stellar racers on the system!

Addendum: Yes a nice redo of Road Rash in HD would be very nice, make it happen Criterion/EA!!! :D

I'm pretty sure this game is 60fps martin.

Chase HQ 2010 right there!!!

Did you see the fucking air vents go up and down on the Reventon?! I have been asking for this kind of detail since the Lamborghini game on Xbox, (which never got released cos the company went bust). I'm going to buy this game when it comes out JUST because they bothered!!!

open world? nooooooo!! :(

i am getting sick of open world racing games, i thought this was gonna be a mix of old NFS and old Burnout but i guess not. in fast racing games i want scripted tracks with arrows blocking certain turns etc so you dont go a wrong way

NFS was the shit when I was a kid... but I think once Underground came out the series has been going nowhere but downhill. Coincidentally Burnout also started sucking once EA got their hands on it

please stop making these shitty racing games... please... no more kiddy racing... ><

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (4 Hours ago)
