Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (Mobile Phone) Review

Get chased by the cops on the go.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit has to be one of my favourite games of all time (the console review for NFS: HP will come up soon) and when I saw that the mobile version was on sale for 5 bucks, since it's a 7 dollar game, I thought, ok, it's a port, this is going to be meh or it is going to be bad. It is neither, it is really good. The graphics look really good and after playing Asphalt 4 for my phone, Need for Speed looks a LOT better. There are no car sounds, there's only the one theme that plays over & over. For controls, if you're playing as a racer, then there's a left & right button to steer and then if you're a cop, there's the left & right, a road block button & a spike button.  Now I had only one problem with the controls, you have to touch above the button. Not on the button, just above it. There's no multiplayer, no online. It's just a one player, when you're at school or at work and you need your Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit fix. The menus look like it popped right out of the console version and that's a good thing. But once you beat the game, if you're like me, you're only going to come back to it once in a while. With that, it's a good port but I just wish the game had a little more replayability. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit for mobile phone is getting a 7.0 out of 10.
