NFS’s Super Sports Pack is hard. Unless you’re a Need For Speed pro, you’ll struggle to keep up with Hot Pursuit’s first proper DLC pack, which pops in thirteen new events and three new cars, with variations of each across both sides of the law.
The Bugatti Veyron SS will likely prove to be the standout car for many, being Hot Pursuit’s fastest car yet and a force to be reckoned with online, while the Interceptor version of the Gumpert Apollo S will almost certainly go down as the favourite amongst the cops thanks to its fantastically cool (and equally epileptic) light show.
Oddly, events are split unevenly across the two factions, with the racers getting a mix of eight races, hot pursuits, gauntlets and time trials, and the cops getting only five; two hot pursuits, a rapid response and a pair of interceptors. Only a couple of the events are really worth getting excited about, although both of them are arguably better than any offered in the main game: the 20 mile hot pursuit and the final 10 minute race being two of Hot Pursuit’s finest. You’ll have cracked through all of the events within 90 minutes, though.
The amplified difficulty level means those who found the main game difficult will probably want to shy away from the Super Sports Pack. But for those desperate for some more racer-chaser action, this 560 MSP/£5.49 pack should just about be enough to tide you over until some more innovative DLC comes our way.
