Spiritual Successor to the Highly Acclaimed, Award Winning Need For Speed III: Hot Pursuit for the PlayStation

The cops are back... and better than ever! Need for Speed(TM): Hot Pursuit 2 for the PlayStation(R) 2 computer entertainment system builds upon the original Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit's legacy by delivering a more intense, arcade racing experience on the next-generation game system.

The game's highly intuitive Artificial Intelligence for the opponents and the police will further immerse the player into the ultimate exotic car fantasy where they can drive these cars at their limit or get caught trying. Opponent racers and the police will have distinct and unique driving styles challenging the racer to learn arrest patterns in order to beat the cops and win the race. The NFS cops will also display different personalities that the racer will learn to recognize.

For added excitement, the player will be challenged to become the "Ultimate Road Racer" by winning numerous racing events, all carrying various rewards such cars, tracks, upgrades, paint jobs, game modes and Easter eggs. The game will also feature split screen multiplayer support.

This game is a work of art. The happenings are incredible. The police banter is hilarious!! The music is fantastic. One of the finest soundtracks ever created for a game. On this game, I enjoy playing as a cop and a racer. Both the Hot Pursuit and Championship challenge series are enjoyable to me. This game is a proud part of my youth!! Number one on my all-time favorite games list. If you haven't already, grab it now; you won't be disappointed. You can even play the game on Steam Deck. If you don't know what Steam Deck is, read this article.
