Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2010 Hints, Tips and Tricks

Electronic Arts announced that the Xbox 360 and PS3 ports of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, developed by Criterion Games, will get a downloadable demo on Tuesday. However, it was confirmed with the EA PR representatives that the demo will not be coming to the PC platform.  This represents a rarity in most 20-year history of the Need for Speed franchise that most releases of the game saw the PC platform for a demo version. The only recent game speed need that has not been a demo for Need for Speed Undercover, which has not had a press demonstration for one of its versions. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2010 is the most recent racing video game developed by Criterion Games. The game is an awesome pack of racing, action and adventure. The game is released for Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows. PlayStation 3 and iPhone. There is some time for the Wii version.  This November, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit launches you into a new open-world landscape behind the wheel of the world’s fastest and most beautiful cars. From Criterion, the award-winning studio behind the Burnout series, Hot Pursuit will redefine racing games for a whole new generation.

You’ll experience stunning speeds, takedowns, and getaways as you battle your friends in the most connected Need for Speed game ever. Through Need for Speed Autolog and its innovative approach to connected social competition, your Hot Pursuit experience will extend beyond the console onto the web, constantly moving your gameplay in new and unique directions. Loaded with action, this game will challenge you to become Seacrest County’s top cop or most wanted racer. For the first time ever in a Need for Speed game, you’ll be able to play a full career on either side of the law. This fall, whether you’re a lead-foot speeder or a cop with a mean streak, make sure your aviators are spotless and your driving record is anything but.


I tried to provide the features of the game what is mentioned on the official website. They are explained in a very minimal way. This are the most highlighted stuff that you can enjoy on the game. I was too awaiting that in comparison to the older version what new I will get in Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2010.

  • Racers: If you had some of the most powerful cars in the world in your garage and miles of open road, you probably wouldn’t waste them on a Sunday drive to pick up milk.  
  • Cops: All this illegal racing is definitely hurting Seacrest County’s tourism potential. No worries, the SCPD have the finest fleet of cop cars in the world to make sure the racers aren’t having all the fun.  
  • Autolog: At the heart of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is Autolog, a connected network keeping you and your friends in the middle of all the action.
  • Cars : We hand-selected the finest vehicles in the world for your Hot Pursuit driving pleasure, many of them driveable as police cars for the first time ever.  
  • Seacrest County:   This is the biggest open-world of any Need for Speed title. From coastline highways to winding mountain passes, you’ll have plenty of roads to explore.  


Now this is not the end. You have more to go as cars are equipped with some powerful upgrades. That means other than racing you get some power to boost your car on the road and more forward.      The first is JAMMER. The Jammer will allow you to block all local SCPD communications, including those used in their mobile Spike Strip units. So lack of communication will result in fail of co-ordination of the cops and you can simply get a faster access to win the race.

The second is SPIKE STRIP.  Based on the actual SCPD Spike Strip, this equipment will drop a deadly tire shredder from the back of your car, perfect for throwing off a tailing Cop.  This is a deadly weapon which can simply halt the chaser where he is by tearing the tires to pieces. The third is EMP. This something really unique. Developed in conjunction with the Seacrest Airforce the EMP is a dangerous Electromagnetic weapon that will launch a huge static burst at its target. Can you imagine that Need for Speed can have a weapon. I found this game always more realistic but this super power type thing is awesome. The TURBO which most of the NFS fans knows to boost your car when you get a free area or if you want to bash someone with great strength.  Activate the Turbo and within seconds your car will be given a short-term, rocket-fuelled injection of speed.

Now this is not the end of list. There is something more to add on here. This is for online multiplayer gaming support.  The feature is called as Online Pass. Now what does this means? Under this option you can get option to access the Need for Speed Hot Pursuit’s exhilarating online multiplayer game modes. You’ll also get exclusive access to the “Hot Pursuit” and “Interceptor” game modes, as well as the Lamborghini LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni and Lamborghini LP 570-4 Superleggera. And, you’ll get ten times more storage space to show off your in-game photos. To setup your Online Pass, you’ll need to enter your Online Pass code, which is included with every new PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 copy of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit.


Tips and Tricks

The game play is somewhat similar to the older version of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. You can chance to explore foreign cars along with cops chasing you in race. High-Speed chasing is the one of the most highlighted feature of this game that you might be aware about. This time you can be a cop or a racer and keep rolling. Remember the cops car have somewhat more benefit over the normal cars. They are quiet more powerful in most of the cases.  You can play Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2010 in two modes. The first is the racer and other one is cop mode. This both features are available under career modes. On every side there are relative power ups which help you to move on and keep racing. You can even call for road block and use the radar jammer as what I mentioned in the features of the game.

The game beings in a city called Seacrest Country. This country will give you an open world for racing where you can run your car over 100 miles of open road. This is much larger in comparison to the old version of game you had played. So you get more racing time and this is the right place about those you are mad about racing. The Single Player even runs between or more than 12 to 15 hours. This is just enough. You get an Autolog features for social messaging. This initiates supports with Facebook. Now everyone can know where your racing career is. In both the modes you can set up a race with eight players and then start racing. You can then directly post the records live on the achievements board which can be shared easily with your friends.  The games demos focused on the facet of cops and robbers, who knows if the game only, consisting of a competition in which two players each on a console, competed to win. One is the thief, or the fugitive, and another policeman, and the exercise aims to confuse and outrun the police, and this one “hunt down” the villain, consisting of this in his car wreck or have it shred.

In the skin of the cop, he will do everything to catch the fugitive, while the player will succeed in taking to their heels if it chooses to embody it. Anyway, everyone has weapons to neutralize the driver’s face it, the fugitive will be able to jam the radar of law enforcement and even sending a false signal on their map, while those This will provide a barrier to block the passage, or else seek the intervention of a helicopter as in the American television series. Each weapon is assigned to a direction of the pad, and he must first perform a gauge divided into four sections for release over the chase. If the best way to load the bar to increase the bar, stand in the aspiration of the competitor is also an excellent solution. The policeman wins if he succeeds in destroying the fugitive’s car, a percentage can view the damage to the car. However, if the pilot manages to remain outside the scope of police surveillance beyond fifteen seconds, he is declared the winner.

Drive Mode : The driver mode in the game is real a fun. I will recommend that the driver is more stimulator type then arcade. That is difference I found. The cars in the game are officially licensed. It is also nice that most of the cars are kept common for both cops and racers. So there I lesser chances of disappointment.

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 happens to be a perfect arcade game to achieve control. Those who have played on the PS2 will find all much less nervous, but this version is largely overtaken by a good multiplayer bill that corrects at the same time the relatively low difficulty of the title. The graphics are gorgeous friendly modes, circuits with many customizable shortcuts to discover, and the police – that one can incarnate – is proving very vicious. Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 is a very good game in the tradition of his ancestors that racing fans would buy with pleasure, unless allergic to gameplay of the series so special.
