    Classic game that rocks!

    This game is a classic in every since of the word. It combines decent graphics, good controls, fast cars, and the highway patrol trying to chase you down. I first found this game back in the late 90’s when it was full pr... Read Full Review

    Need for Speed 3: Hot Pursuit is easily the worst game I have seen in my life. I don't even know if it should be called a game. The plot? Nothing. You just race around tracks or try to capture cars as the fuzz over and o... Read Full Review

    A fantastic soundtrack is the only thing that has not been improved upon by subsequent games in the series.

    Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit was probably the first "serious" video game I ever owned. It introduced me to the world of fast cars and racing, and as such I will be forever indebted to it. Back in the day, it was undou... Read Full Review
