Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2
4 Star Review  GameZone - Nov 1, 2002

As you wrap your hands on the steering wheel, you can feel the metal beast trembling. Suddenly the other racers around you come to life and you slam your foot on the pedal, making your own racer dart out into the open road at top speed. From behind you comes the police in their equally fast and sophisticated vehicles, their only intent is to stop this illegal race no matter what. In Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2, all you can do is strap on your seat belt and gun it--this is one wild race. Like in the first Need for Speed, you have a slew of fast cars at your disposal from the sleek and sexy Dodge Viper GTS to the fast and furious Ferrari 360 Spider.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2
3.5 Star Review  GameSpy - Nov 9, 2002

Who can resist the lure of being able to drive obscenely expensive cars at obscenely excessive speeds? If your answer to that question is Not me! then you'll probably want to check out Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2, the latest installment in Electronic Arts' long-running series of racing games. EA has just released the game for all three major console platforms as well as the PC, and while the PC game may be a few steps below the excellent PS2 version, there's plenty here to like.

4 Star Review   By member Unrealnighthawk - Aug 5, 2003   

Strengths: great gameplay, excellent cars, cop-mode

Weakness: graphics aren't up to date since it's a pretty old game

Overall this game is great for all people that enjoy racing games (and many like me that don't). I think the best part of this game is the cop-mode in which you have to catch the other cars (which look awsome btw). If it was newer with an improved graphics system then it'd be probably the best racing/cop game ever.

5 Star Review   By member Blue_Devil - Dec 5, 2002   

Strengths: Great graphics, Excelent music

Unlike in NFS: hot pursuit, Hot Pursuit 2 is difficult but still easy in the beginning. The cops do a great job of slowing you down. Cars are fast but can lose control so be careful and take the short cuts. In cop mode the disappointing thing is that you have to hit them to bust them so stopping them will work but not until they drive off leaving you in the dust, but I found that if you hit them on the side to the rear to spin them backwards then spin yourself around using the parking break, it puts you in a position to stop them for good. This game is excellent so buy it.
