Overall, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered may very well be the best Need For Speed game on modern hardware. There’s something about the more focused menu-centric system in place here that makes it more fun to go back and forth between racing and police action, and the retooled graphics and sound do a lot to help make the game more intense than ever before. If you enjoyed the game the first time around, it’s better now and feels more modern than one would expect for something that isn’t a ground-up remake. For anyone who missed it, you can now enjoy a better-looking, better-sounding, and better-playing version of one of the best racing games of the past decade.
A cracking example of nostalgia done right, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered is as worthy as any current-gen racer out there. It’s not easy to begin with, but once you’re practiced you’ll be flying across the finish line.
If you have ever wanted to smash police cars/racers off the road then Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered on Xbox is the game for you, and that goes double if you've never played it before. It’s fast, furious and will have you on the edge of your seat as you hurtle round corners, inches from disaster, winning a race by the skin of your teeth. If you played the original then there’s not a lot new here, but it looks and plays great - that in itself means it’s got to be worth a punt.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit was a good game that allowed us to remember the foundation of the saga classics . But Criterion offers a Burnout style game that works quite well. Now, with a need for new games that provide an experience that fans deserve, appears the remastered edition of this game. And it works well, especially on Xbox One X, with the performance mode and the 60fps that gives a really fast experience. But we can't ignore that this game is ten-year-old game. improved resolution, some new effects and, most importantly, new stages and races, rejuvenates this classic arcade racing experience.
Ten after its initial release, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is still a really good game, and the few improvements Stellar Entertainment has brought to refresh it a bit. Nervous, easy to learn and rather dense thanks to the addition of DLC, the title fits without much difficulty in a market where purely arcade racing games are rare, despite an aging general structure.
Hot Pursuit’s core has aged very well, although not everything around it has. Even with its flaws, this is a solid racing game that we recommend to everyone who misses simpler times, when games didn’t need filler content to be greenlighted.
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered offers slight technical improvements and 6 hours of content compared to the game 10 years ago. And it may not be enough except that you are a true fan of the license.
