Racing games on the iPad are interesting beasts. In many cases, like this one, the acceleration is handled for you. You steer by turning the entire device left and right. They work well, and Hot Pursuit is no exception. The racing is a little more forgiving than what you'll find in the console version of the game, but that's to be expected on a portable platform. The problem is in the content: where the original offered you the chance to be the police or the illegal racers, in the iPad version you can only race as the police.
