EA Announces Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit by Criterion
That’s right, Criterion games, who brought you Burnout, the best racing franchise ever, is bringing back Hot freaking Pursuit. They showed a brief split-screen demo at EA’s E3 press conference, and damn did it look sweet. This title has a couple things going for it in my eyes: 1) Criterion is making it and 2) Hot Pursuit nostalgia. The original cops-versus-criminals game was the first racing title I really got absorbed in, and I trust Criterion to carry that torch. This one is coming at you on November 16 of this year in North America and November 18-19 in Europe on 360, PS3 and PC.
