Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 

Xbox 360, iOS, PlayStation 3, Windows, Wii (Electronic Arts)

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit takes the racing series back to its roots and in most ways succeeds. Players can select from a wide range of vehicles, from a sturdy Subaru Impreza to a Lamborghini. However, it wouldn’t be fair to race cars that diverse against each other, so the vehicles are split up into different categories. What makes this game so fun is the cop vs racer aspect. Whether on single or multiplayer, these races are the highlight. But don’t expect to unleash road rage on a friend sitting on the same couch---all multiplayer events are online, and single player seems bland and isn’t as intense as the online matches. Also the soundtrack is extremely repetitive. However, this is a solid, action-focused racing game with an emphasis on the action. Whether you’re the cop or the racer you’ll get some good thrills out of this.
