EA has released the first screenhots of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit from Criterion Games
It looks so great. Criterion at its best!
Really takes me back to the good old days when the franchise was alive and kicking. This is what NFS is truly about. After suffering over the last few years with the crap that has been put out, I'm so glad that EA has finally realized that Undercover was not NFS. ProStreet was not NFS. Carbon was not NFS. Underground was not NFS. This is Need for Speed.
WOW EA IS ON FIRE! So far: Need for Speed Dead Space Medal of Honor And they all impress! Also they show PS3 a lot of love - Great to see..
I still hope they have more than just "exotic cars". And yes I mean "tuners".  Don't disagree with me! xD haha I just feel the number of cars will be limited if it's just "exotic cars".
looks awesome. Just like the classic NfS games. I'd still personally like it if this game was open world but i dont mind if it isn't. I trust Criterion fully. They're great
@Poindat I agree with EVERYTHING you just said. Everything! I really, really hope they remake tracks from NFS:HP2
Yes! Back to the old days of Hot Pursuit. I loved the Hot Pursuit titles.
Same here. I never got into those Underground games or the recent Shift game. The screen shots look very promising. It looks fantastic. Looking at those screen brings me back to Hot Pursuit (PSX), High Stakes (PSX) and Hot Pursuit 2 (PS2). That's when NFS games were good.
...Criterion states on their website that the game is 100% inspired from the original NFS games. That they want to take the series back to those days. Criterion has just received a massive respect boost from me; these guys truly do care about the gamers.
The PS3 is lead platform for this, just like it was the lead for Burnout Paradise.
Just like almost every EA game.
well they said all their games lead on PS3 now.
EA's looking good, lets hope there servers can run all these online games .......... get BF ****ing fixed!
crysis 2 was on 360
i been waiting 10 years for this
I thought that the day would never come when we gamers would get the true Need for Speed back. Today is a good day.
a good day indeed
BTW Dead Space 2 Demo on Sony Conference tomorrow.
I have just watched the video on Criterion. This is amazing. The best destruction racer plus the best cop racer combined in one. Epic. Still watching. EA's looking very impressive right now.
First screen shots atlast waited since it was announced :)
I'm watching it live right now and I realised something that made me smile, every game they have demoed so far has been the PS3 version. I guess the PS3 is the lead platform for every EA game. EDIT: By the way the CGI trailer was crazy and the gameplay demonstration was even better.
I am so pumped about this,THIS IS REAL NEED FOR SPEED!!!! can't w8!
Nice, it's the classic yellow Lambo from the Hot Pursuit PS1 cover. That's badass! This will be the first NFS I buy this generation.
Me too! I never bought them, because they were all crap. I used my PS3's BC to play the PS1 and PS2 titles all the time. This will be the first next gen NFS game.
The game looks great! But those 2 people playing the demo, made the game boring to watch.
