Hot action cop

Hi there. Today’s review is of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2. Featuring the origins of the phrase ‘road trousers’, and for some reason a world record number of links to other reviews of racing games on the site. See you next time!

Every lie takes you deeper

Hi there, Today’s review takes us back to the Need for Speed series, with 2008’s instalment, Undercover.

The Need for Speed: The Movie

Ever since Wing Commander, I’ve maintained a passing interest in game-to film-adaptations, especially if I’ve actually played (and enjoyed) the game or series in question.

If you’re in the UK, The Fast and the Furious will just have been on telly. The fourth film is out on DVD on Monday (er, I didn’t know that, a friend told me). Plus EA have just given their Need for Speed series yet another makeover in the form of SHIFT. It’s almost like […]

First I’m gonna take your ride…then your girl
