New NFS: Hot Pursuit Trailer Glorifies Running From the Cops
So there’s this Porsche that’s driving way too fast, and then a cop tries to chase him, and then the cop crashes awesomely, and then like a Porsche cop car starts chasing, and then there’s a road block, and then both fly past in slow motion but they’re really going way fast, and, and, and, and, uh, yeah.
Sorry about that; I just love things that move very quickly, and there is quite a bit of things moving quickly in this new Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit trailer. And it isn’t just quick cuts of fast-moving things like the last Hot Pursuit trailer; nope, this time we have one long sequence.
Normally I would lecture the game developer about having their game live up to the pre-rendered promos, but I don’t really need to do that, because I’ve been playing Burnout games for years and know without a doubt that whatever Criterion puts together here will be better than anything I can imagine. Oh yeah, watch the trailer, damn it.
Game’s out November 16 on all three current-gen consoles and the PC.
