Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2
4 Star Review  GameZone - Oct 14, 2002

The latest from Electronic Arts is an arcade-style racing game that features tons of sexy cars for you to drive as fast as possible. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 features quite a few modes for you to play, quite a few cool tracks, and a cool points system to unlock cars. The game is definitely fun, but it isn't perfect. If some problems were worked out, and the game was more polished, it would be a must-have title for any racing fan. As it is, it's a great rental - it probably even warrants a purchase if you're looking for a new racing title to play with your friends.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2
3 Star Review  GameSpy - Nov 1, 2002

The Need for Speed name is synonymous with arcade racing, and after a handful of installments the series is still going strong. After taking the police-themed chases out of Need for Speed II, they returned for the series' final foray on the PlayStation in 1998, Hot Pursuit. After almost five years, the true sequel is finally here in Hot Pursuit 2 for the Xbox, and it gives players all the car-chasing, roadblock-blasting action they can handle. But it also pales in comparison to the PlayStation 2 version.

3.5 Star Review  IGN.com - Sep 30, 2002

If the Xbox has one thing, it’s quality racing games. You’ve got sim-heavy racing , your rally racing , arcade racers , and even racing games that don’t really fit in a traditional category . EA’s Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 is an arcade racer that needs little introduction.

2 Star Review   By member jeffreyjrose - Jun 22, 2005   

Strengths: Sense of speed on tracks, ability to "outrun" cops, decent graphics

Weakness: Almost everything... this game is extremely short, car models are rather lacking, police chases are not fun, tracks are uninspired, etc.

If you truly enjoy racing games, pick up something else more worth your money such as Project Gotham Racing 2 or Forza for realism, or Burnout 3 for arcadey racing. This game has a VERY limited number of cars to choose from, tracks are uninspired, shortcuts aren't all that great, and multiplayer is boring. If you absolutely MUST play this, rent it for a day... you'll see what I mean.

4 Star Review   By member shrike424242 - Jan 25, 2005   

Strengths: Good graphics, great music, tight controls, great cars to drive

Weakness: AI isn't too smart

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 stars some of the world's fastest and best cars, offering the chance to drive them at ridiculous speeds. All the cars are rendered very well and look like their real life counterparts. The music adds some nice atmosphere to the game, though is quieted with the police chatter when in pursuit. The controls are nice and tight, which helps with high-speed driving, through the police sometimes don't see a car going back at very fast speeds. There's plenty of unlockables and racetracks, to add some nice replay to the game, and it's well worth picking up for some high-speed action.
