Need For Speed Hot Pursuit
Hot Pursuit delivers excellent control and handling, which isn't all that surprising given this is the Burnout studio. With point-to-point races along long stretches of road and often calls for extremely precise, split-second maneuvers in order to avoid traffic, bust roadblocks or take a shortcut on what are some comparatively narrow roads. It allows players to blaze through an entire career as a cop or a racer. In one instance, you need to focus on avoiding traffic, threading a needle through gaps in roadblocks and generally driving as fast as possible; in the other, you're trying to ram racers until they crash and just generally being more aggressive.
Hot Pursuit is great because the core concept of escaping from the police, and trying to catch speedes as the police, is delivered on so well. They succeed at being challenging from a pure racing standpoint, but also play to the pursuit element of the game, offering up side roads that can be used to ditch the fuzz or, conversely, cut off racers and drop a spike strip.
The system of collecting bounty points for driving well and winning races works really well, increasing your rank as either a cop or a racer, which, in turn, makes new cars available. By the end of the game, you're driving incredibly fast, exotic cars on both sides of the law and using advanced tactics to win.
 But this is not all There's also an excellent online component. The "Autolog" system is the key to it all, really, keeping constant track of how your friends are doing in any given event, which makes retrying races in an attempt to one-up them irresistible you're able to post specific challenges for your friends to take on "say you just beat a race in under a certain time and you want to see if your friends can top it" and they'll appear in your list of event "suggestions." There's also a message board where messages and screenshots can be shared among friends, and an interesting system through which the game will recommend friends of friends to you, in order to expand the online experience.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit may have been a late entrant into the race, but it grabs the checkered flag for this year.
10/10 The best racing game i had ever played.
