Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) is a multiplatform arcade racing game. The Wii release of Hot Pursuit was developed by Exient Entertainment and is the fifth instalment of the Need for Speed series to be released on the Wii platform. The gameplay and graphics seen in other ports greatly differ from this rendition.


Similar to any other release of the game, players can choose to play as cop or racer in several events. The driving in the Wii release also involves drifting around corners. Power-ups can be used, too, although they are known as Supe-Ups.

Unlike the other releases of the game, players can actually launch their car at the start of a race. Customisation is available, too. However, free-roam and visual car damage are not featured in this title.

Game Modes

  • Career Play - The core part of the game. In this mode players can unlock new cars and race with crew bosses in four cities around the world. Events have to be completed in a specific order.
  • Quick Play - Equivalent to Quick Race. Interceptor events can be played in this mode only.

Race Modes

  • Eliminator - After every 30 second, a racer will be disqualified from the race.
  • Hot Pursuit - Players have to complete the race without getting busted by chasing police vehicles.
  • Interceptor - This mode allows players to play as either cop or racer. While cops have to arrest anyone before one finishes the race, the racers have to finish the race without being arrested by the police.
  • Rush Hour - The same as Eliminator events, except after every 10 seconds, a racer will be eliminated. 100 cars take part in such events.
  • Time Trial - Players are challenged to complete a track within a set time limit.

Car Customisation

Players can get bodykits and new sets of tyres on cars. Car paints can be changed as well.

Car List


Hot Pursuit on the Wii is not set in Seacrest County. Instead players can race in four major cities of the world.
