NWR: "Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is about as vanilla a racer as you can get on any system. Absolutely nothing stands out, yet nothing is really broken, either. The game's real downfall is its incredible lack of scope and ambition.
While the HD console versions revel in vehicular glory, practically force-feeding you high-res models and narrated histories of the featured cars, the Wii version just tosses low-res, low-polygon generic car models at you that happen to feature real brand names and vaguely recognizable body types. But that's as good as it gets. Customization options include changing the paint scheme, upgrading your tires, and adding a spoiler. One wonders if that's all the game's graphics engine can handle."
