Is It Any Good?

Kids say (7 ):

The graphics, control, and overall presentation of NEED FOR SPEED HOT PURSUIT FOR iPAD are fantastic (and the iPhone version is really just as good). Chasing down the bad guys through different environments (like forests or shorelines), and with varying weather and lighting effects (you can drive at night, or through a thunderstorm) provides a great visceral thrill. The career mode offers different types of challenges and the opportunity to earn money that can be spent on more powerful vehicles. But whichever cars you use (except in mulitplayer), you're on the side of the law in this version of Need for Speed, which is a nice change of pace for the series.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
