Trailer of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit from E3.
Cool, hope it doesn't suck.
Criterion just doesnt do suck.
It will, oh it will.....sigh
I don't think Criterion can fail in the arcade racing genre. They are the kings.
The trailer even resembles the classic NFS intros that I used to love so much. It's amazing what kind of magic can happen when a developer who truly loves and cares about the franchise and its fans gets on board. <3 Criterion
i was thinking the same thing about the trailer......just watching it takes be back to the classic N4S games. hopefully, they'll incorporate all of the shortcuts they used to include on the tracks. this made my day.......i hadn't heard about this being in production; and, i'm stoked!
Totally agree poindat.. I also loved those street racing game with cops. I am so excited to see NFS back to it's original form. Hope this game will rock...
the old nfs is back baby yay
Looks amazing. Been looking for a good Need for Speed for a while now.
Had better be realistic ... like Forza, or at least Shift.
At least do some research into the franchise before you decide to comment. NFS has been and will be (except for Shift, but that isn't a *true* NFS game) an arcade racer.
the insanely fast-paced "pick-up-and-race" style of the old N4S:hot pursuit2" is what made the series great! and FINALLY - they're getting back to that style!!! forza and GT are fun - but give me the arcade style of the old N4S games......i can't wait for this!
Played Most Wanted, Undercover & Shift. Story - MW is the best. Sexy lead - Undercover. Gameplay - MW. Driving physics - Shift for sure (but Forza's better).
...No, trust me, you HAVEN'T played a proper Need for Speed game. Check out the series pre-Underground, because all of the games you mentioned are Need for Speed in name only, and nothing else.
the older nfs
N4S: hot pursuit1/2. if i had to pick one,i'd be #2, but both are kick-ass arcade fun!
get out of here with that mess this is classic arcade play brought back to its roots.
only started gaming on the Xbox 360 in 2007.
do yourself a favor and try and get ps2 or any emulation and play the older NFS's you won't be disappointed. trust me @poindat 5 bubbles nice
Yeah, if you've only been gaming since 2007 on a 360 then you'd be doing yourself a HUGE favor by getting a PS2. You've got a lot of catching up to do, bud.
Do the games a favor and don't play them now. While they were great games for their time, you starting on a 360 may make them seem even more dated. Great games don't always look so great a few years down the road
Forza 3 is also an arcade racing game... anyways its made by this NFS is made by Criterion so it gonna be great.
I'm actually disappointed, I would much rather have Burnout Paradise 2. But I'll wait and see.
I like what it said at the end, "Race OR Chase". I have been looking for a good race game where you can play as the police.
Great Trailer, Criterion are brilliant I can see them reviving the NFS series.
back to the NFS i loved! pops to criterion!
I KNOW!!! THANK THE LORD THEY BROUGHT IT BACK!! AND ITS ACTUALLY IN GOOD HANDS THIS TIME!!! NO STORY MODE JUST YOU, AND EXOTIC CAR, AND A TON OF COPS! CLASSIC!!!!
Hot Pursuit 2 is my fav NFS game...i hope this is good.
Ok I retract my earlier statement I didn't know Criterion was making this one and I'm glad they're finally going back to the hot pursuit franchise. Can't wait to get my hands on one of my favorite franchise.
That looked really good think ill finally pick up my first racing game this gen. Nothing appealed to me so far MS was oki played at friend house but lacked split and pacific didnt real me in. Not a GT fan, but NFS just up my ally loved the pursuit series and after the undergrounds NFS just never been the same.
Now THIS is Need for Speed. It's great to see this title going back to it's former roots. After watching the trailer, one has to wonder whether or not they're remaking the National Forest (HP2) and Redrock Ridge (HP) tracks from the previous installments. For nostalgic sake I'm hoping to see Aquatica, Hometown, Rocky Pass, Atlantica, and others in HD. The return of El Niño would be nice as well.
yeah the forest part with all the trees looks like nfs hot pursuit 2
The last good NFS in my book was Hot Pursuit 2 and I said, for it to be considered again if they go back to this, fast sport cars and not these ricer cars pimping out yo ride. Just driving and having fun.
this has some promise, i loved the nfs series, i thought it was a unique game where you could have almost full customisation to your car while driving, i didn't think they needed to touch on the driving simulator path, they already had a strong concept. MY favourite ones where Underground 1+2, Undercover, Most Wanted and Carbon was alright for me. I didn't get a chance to play the old Hot Pursuit but i hear that was a good one too. From th trailer it seems like you get the chance to choose what side you want to be on online, cop car or racer, because when each car was introuduced they had names on the side similar of psn ids/gamer tags. It would be cool if you could do that. Hope this one does well, but i will be looking at reviews befor purchase tbh
