Need for Speed Hot Pursuit accelerates onto iPhone

Preventing crime at high speeds

Electronic Arts’s Need for Speed Shift recently featured on Qi’s Top 5 driving sims rundown, racing onto the front row of our illustrious grid in second place.

Its successor, and third overall in the popular franchise on iPhone, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit screeched onto the App Store overnight and straight to the top of the Qi recent releases chart.

This time around, EA’s high octane arcade racer invites you to play the role of Lamborghini Reventon-driving good guy in a classic cops and robbers tale.

To bring these hardened speeding criminals to justice over 24 career events, you are tooled up to the nines with roadblocks, EMPs, and spike strips.

While local wi-fi and Bluetooth multiplayer encourage head-to-head showdowns with nearby felons / friends, Retina display support delivers extra visual pizzazz to iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G.

AppSpy singled out the latter feature for special praise on review: “Visually Hot Pursuit is jaw dropping and whether you situate the camera behind the car, the wheel, or the bumper, it’s hard not to feel the unadulterated speed you’re dealing with.”

Speed on over to the App Store now and hunt down Need for Speed Hot Pursuit for £2.99 / $4.99 / €3.99.
