    The first of five

    The Must Have Games promotion starts off this week with this popular EA franchise.

    Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (WP) - $4.99 / £3.99

    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.

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

    CHASE ACHIEVEMENTS
    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.

    DUEL IT OUT ON THE ROAD
    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.

    Spoiled by $2 DotW and $3 releases. I'll be passing on this.
    If you get good at making excuses, it's difficult to get good at anything else.

    ^^^ Exactly.

    Just bought and played it. By far best graphics on WP. Didn't mind paying 4.99 for a game that looks and plays like a 360 game.

    ^^^ let us chickens know if the achievements actually pop

    I just bought it. The achievements pop, and the game is SWEET! It's actually a lot like the console version of NFS Hot Pursuit. $4.99 is worth it. All of you are willing to pay like 1200 microsoft points for some console games, this is totally worth it. The graphics are great, and there are two separate campaigns, like the console version. I just wish you could switch your stats back and forth.

    Tried the demo and I'm not impressed at all. There's no feel for speed in the game, and the graphics are far from the best on WP7.
    If games keep being released with a £3.99 pricepoint it will lead to the demise of the WP7 operating system, as the majority of users are here solely for Xbox live!

    I haven't seen any update for it, and I'm playing it right now. Does it fix the broken achievement?
