STAFF REVIEW of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 (Xbox)

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 Box art NFS2 is a solid racing game. What it lacks in graphics, it more than makes up in gameplay. I've always liked the NFS series, and this is the best one to come along in a while.


This game plays better than any other racer. The cars handle smoothly, and each car feels different. The cops behave intelligently, and this is where it is the most fun. I love the helicopters that drop the exploding barrels, but I wonder who would do that in real life?!? Cars behave like they should (bump the back corner bumper and the other car will spin out). Lots of different modes and things to unlock keep things interesting.


Overall the graphics are pretty sad when compared to other racers on the Xbox such as PGR, Apex, and RalliSport. It's not god awful, but is certainly bland. Typical of EA games to not make use of the Xbox's potential.


Custom soundtracks earn it a 5 out of 5 from me. Each vehicle sounds different, and I like the police chatter on the radios.


Suggestions:
Needs an upgrade in the graphics department before I would give it a 5 rating.


Overall: 9.0 / 10
Gameplay: 10.0 / 10
Visuals: 6.0 / 10
Sound: 10.0 / 10
