Did you get to race against head-to-head against someone?

No, I just did 1 round of the single player. I think you can race against other people though. I'm going to try more features out tonight.

Sweet I need to download this. I love NFS games. Underground 2 is probably my favourtie still. Have they listed anywhere what cars will be in the game? I really want a 93 Nissan Skyline in there.

Don't know yet. But will be playing it later tonight for a few minutes, then back to Frontline SP.

Underground 2 was a sweet game. I played the Hot Pursuit demo last night, I played as a racer and a cop. I thought I would just want to play as a the racer but,the cop car was cool, dropping spike strips and putting up road blocks was fun. Not much to do on the demo though.

The cars - http://hotpursuit.needforspeed.com/game-info/cars

Learned two things from the demo - I definitely want this, and I need to practice driving.

Did replay the demo a few times, using the Z to get ahead and take them out with spikes, and the Crown Vic for bumping.
This is really gonna shine in the multiplayer, always had the most fun with all human players. Of course then we had to lug all our computers to the same house and get a network running. This will be much more convenient :p

The demo was super cool. Sad that it is a short demo, but it reminds me of Need For Speed III on the PC. That game was awesome!

After reading some more I've gone from must-buy to wait and see.
I don't like the drop from the back of car spike strips vs. the strips that were deployed ahead (like the road block).

And racers get weapons in pursuit?
Spike-strip - Will deploy a spike strip directly behind your vehicle.
Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) - Releases an electronic pulse which reverses the directed vehicle's controls.
Turbo-boost - This will allow racers to get ahead of opponents effectively.
Jammer - Will be used to disturb and block all police communications, this includes deactivating spike-strips, cause helicopters to pull out of the chase, etc.

May as well be!
Hot Pursuit used to be about getting away as the racer, now it's sounding more like "Car Wars"

Weapons, really? That's just lame.

I would assume that you will have the ability to choose to play with weapons or without. Just watch out for the red turtle shell.

I played the demo a little bit and found being a cop quite fun...

I think the way they incorporated "asynchronous multiplayer" is great - you see how fast your friends have driven, they can make recommendations, etc etc...

I still don't know how BERZERKERTICK managed to stop the racers in something like 2 minutes @-)

What a beautiful looking game with amazing crashes - just like Paradise City - what a surprise.

Edit: here's a fun trailer (http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2010/11/12/roll-deep-vs-the-stig-in-a-real-hot-pursuit-2/) with The Stig from Top Gear being chased by Roll Deep (a London based Grime Music collective).

I need to download the demo for this game, it looks great, I haven't played a NFS since Most Wanted which was great. I like the idea of playing either side.

My mate from EA got me a copy of the full version of this. Heads Up -I'm just banging through some of your records guys. :))
