adamsappel Posted July 9, 2003 Report Share Posted July 9, 2003 I was at Target yesterday and saw that Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 was marked down to $14.99. I knew that the criticism was that both the GC and Xbox versions were inferior to the PS2's, but I wanted an arcade-y car racer for the Cube and having rented and enjoyed the PS2 version, figured this would fit the bill and for fifteen bucks couldn't be so bad. Man, what a turd this port is. I'm only going on memory, but the tracks seemed to have fewer shortcuts and other elements like forest fires and jumps were gone as well (or I didn't see them during the time I played). Graphically, it looks like an N64 game. I didn't mind the floaty controls so much since I'm playing Auto Modellista and NFS is rock-solid in comparison, but the collision physics were way off. I was actually ashamed to have this game in my collection, so today I went to Game Crazy and they gave me over $15 credit for it, so I picked up XGIII, which I find to be a much better game and a lot of fun. So, while I am wiser now, I still need an arcade-y car racer for the Cube. Anything out there? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
