They don't. The distinction might be sometimes slight, but it's there.

The reviewers are generally praising the game and I agree. It's not in any way innovative, but it's fun and quite challenging at the end.

Here are some pics, let me know if you want me to post more. These were taken with the ingame photo editor. Next time I think I will use Fraps or something to get an actual screenshot.

More Pics

weee... still waiting for patch. ^^ In a last ditch effort I applied all known work arounds at once.. set cpu affinity to 2 cores, compatibility set to win98. Performance went to **** as a result and the game still crashes out about 5 minutes into the race.

What is it exactly, that you didn't like about this game? It's like the original Hot Pursuit, hence the name, but mixed with a little bit of Burnout, no wonder, if it's done by Criterion, so you definitely couldn't be surprised by the game mechanics.

I dunno... just from user feedback the vibe I'm getting is I'll pass this up. If I see it on sale for like $5, maybe $10 some day I'll likely grab it.
