Exclusive video and commentary from GoukiJones. Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is the hottest racing game for the 2010 holiday season.
Criterion Games presents Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, the best selling racing game of the 2010 holiday season. Gran Turismo 5 is out. There's no competition in the racing genre. Don't worry, I think GT5 and NFSHP are two totally different games anyway. NFSHP is a fast pace action arcade racing game. GT5 is a simulator.
I got a good taste of the racing during my time with the demo and I will tell you I really enjoyed it. A couple of notes here. I thought it was weird when the demo asks for your email and if I want to sign up for the EA newsletter and receive other valuable information. No Jimmy. No thank you. There's gonna be a lot of social networking integration.
It's bad enough the most giant ad ever on the Xbox dashboard was seen today for TIDE detergent?! WTF. Maybe moms are logging in -first thing in the morning- before they do laundry to have a quick game of Halo Reach.
There are only two races in the demo. The cop chase in which you must ELIMINATE the illegal drivers. Not to be confused with running over illegal aliens. Both the cop cars are sweet and there's an intro with a sexy voice over for each car. The other race is just a race with high performance cars. No cops, which I didn't understand. Also different during this race was the licensed rock music playing. The cop chase race only had some generic "hot pursuit" music. I could care less about the music either way.

This is the game when there are no cops. Just another boring racing game. That is not my background music. That is from the game. sad face? Muted!

Check out my impressions of EA's keynote speech inside.
So Microsoft's keynote was pretty disappointing; we all know it's true. Unless you care about watching Kinect, there was very little that was interesting. So then came EA's keynote. Was it better than Microsoft? For the most part, yes.
EA opened up with a new remake of Hot Pursuit. I have to say it: I wasn't that much impressed by the demo. It's from Criterion, and it certainly looked like it; the game really did appear to have a Burnout feel to it. The graphics do look impressive, but I just can't get over the fact that the game looks more like a Burnout game than a Need for Speed game. EA boasted that the game was going back to the Need for Speed roots, but I just didn't see it in the demo.
