NFS Hot Pursuit: On Tour videos

The NFS team is on tour with their game Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, so far they've stopped by NYC and Paul-Ricard racing circuit in France. Not a lot of gameplay to watch though, both videos inside.

This reminded me of the original Need for Speed on the 3DO system back in the stone age. That game was a rush, and the crashes were fantastic. Haven't been excited about a need for speed game since then.

Nice videos but nothing really attracting towards the game itself.

Nice advertising EA. I havent seen anything this aggressive for a game in years. It is odd, too... because it is a genre that generally doesnt sell well, comparatively , to other genres. Guess EA is trying to change that. Very cool. Almost feels like a console launch, with the way they are promoting the game. Its a shame I dont live near any of these big cities. The party looks insane!

Word, I was thinking the same thing. Good way how to basically push it into people's faces. I heard about similar promotions for their other games in Europe. I've heard there were some cool launch parties for Dragon Age and Mass Effect 2 in some countries. Too bad I live in northern Sweden where there's basically nothing.
But again, these vids are not really worth much to us gamers because we just suck on trailers and stuff.

Wow. I was really excited for this but my hopes keep falling. All they keep showing after a car is "taken out" by police is the same canned animation of the car rolling- Exactly the same every time! They need to mix it up and have some actual physics involved in the take downs to keep it interesting. This is Criterion too. Can you imagine in Burnout if everytime you did a takedown it was the same crash animation??

Now I also noticed in the second vid that there was a clip shown with a black&white filter on the track. Why, why, why are so many developers trying to ruin their games with these ugly and rediculous filters???

Videos of the game itself would have been preferable to seeing a bunch of brainless losers 'dancing' to dreadful music.

Hahaha nice to see ea hasen't learned a damn thing during the last five years, the company was in serious trouble because of absurd development costs and excessive spending on marketing. If anything they are spending more money on marketing than ever. Oh well nice to see a nfs game that isn't some street racy crapfest.

QFT. It's just another set of mindless marketing mush. And for some reason, I'm still not convinced of the underlying game...

If that image up there its how teh game will look like I like it very much.

I do not like this. There are better racing games to come this year and also next year motorstorm3 will be released in first half of 2011.
Commented on 2010-07-31 20:28:43
I think that NFS always had the top notch graphics when its games came out, this one is no exceptions and at least it doesn't use the brown filter on it, although there seem to be some other filters on it anyways. And since Motorstorm is PS3 only this game could shine on 360. It's a big could, though.

didnt like how they think by them showing some rappers in the video it would be cool. nfs games are a joke already... cant wait for GT5
Commented on 2010-08-01 08:42:38
Not all NFS games are a joke, it's just after Underground they seem to be experimenting too much and it only succeeds every-other release.

Lucky for EA and the rest of us, they have the dough to keep on trying.
See where they ended up? Back to the high point of the series.
(though I'd argue that Most Wanted was just that, with an even crazier cat&mouse system and the awesome openness of Underground)
Commented on 2010-08-01 09:48:27
One thing I don't understand is that MW, Carbon and Underground all had cop chases in them so this game is just cop chases without all the goodies of the previous games?

I think you meant "Undercover".
But yeah, we'll have to see what and how with this game.

The name alone is making me confused, as there is already a Hot Pursuit in existence, which was rendered obsolete with HP2.
So what is it? A remake of HP? and mix of HP and HP2? a mix of HP and HP2 with open worldness and added stuffs?

Even if it was just a graphically enhanced version of HP2, I'd bite.

It's Criterion at the wheel now, so I'm interested.
Commented on 2010-08-01 12:22:03
Yeah, I meant Undercover.
Let's just call this game HP3, I guess. Seriously, they must think that all the fans of old games have died out and nobody remembers them now so they can reuse the same name(s) again.
What a stupid trend.

I must admit, I'm a bit offended by that.

How do you mean?

Games looks potentially interesting but my God, what an irrelevant collection of fucking powertools that video contained.

Terrible promotion idea, I can absolutely not relate at all to these fashion victim hipster dickwads.
