Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit for Windows Phone 7 released

Quick heads up to let you know that Need For Speed hot pursuit has just been released in the Windows Phone Marketplace for $4.99. You can grab the trial right know and try it out for yourself especially if you have a 1st generation handset just in case it doesn’t perform well on your handset. Everything is running smoothly on my Lumia 800 that I tested it on, the only nasty thing being the “right in your face” and low resolution mipmapping level used in this version of the game (compared to Android and iOS) which I’m guessing was done to make the game playable on the Adreno 200 powered handsets. I will shoot a hands one video later today to show you the game in action.

FEEL THE RUSH OF THE ESCAPE AND THE THRILL OF THE TAKEDOWN! Outrun the law as a Racer in supercars like the Pagani Zonda Cinque – or stop racers cold as a Cop in high-speed police interceptors like the Lamborghini Reventon. Enabled for Xbox LIVE®, experience pulse-pounding action as you make the escape or make the bust with Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit on Windows Phone 7.

Use your existing Xbox LIVE Gamertag or create a new one via the Windows Phone 7 main menu to track achievements and access leaderboards.

Drive up to 20 precision-performance cars in adrenaline-fueled showdowns across 24 day-and-night tracks. Take it to the limit in 48 total Cop and Racer Career Events, collect bounty, and rise to the top of the ranks.

As a Cop, lay down the law with roadblocks and spike strips – or fry the Racer’s electrical system with an EMP lock. As a Racer, make the getaway with overdrive, jamming, and oil slicks.
