Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is a BAFTA Award–winning 2010 racing video game in the Need for Speed series. Hot Pursuit is the 16th title in the franchise. The Wii version of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is significantly different from other versions in that it takes place in four different cities across the world, instead of just taking place in a single fictional county. This makes the game very similar to Nitro. The game features five different gameplay modes, such as Hot Pursuit, Eliminator, Rush Hour, Interceptor and Time Trial. Also, different powerups are used. The four cities, each set in a different time of day — Chongqing, China, set in the morning, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, set in the afternoon, Rio de Janiero, Brazil, set in the early evening, and Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, which is set in the late evening.
Controller Map Overlap
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is capable of using both GameCube controllers and Wii Remotes. If a physical controller is set to emulate both a GameCube Controller and a Wii Remote concurrently, it will operate both devices at the same time. To fix, migrate controls to use separate physical controllers.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit uses the VP6 video codec, common in Electronic Arts' titles, causing its videos to have vertical line artifacts and other glitches on many graphics cards. The Software Render will display VP6 video correctly, but is typically too slow. VP6 rendering also reacts poorly to the Force Texture Filtering enhancements (and Anisotropic Filtering on NVIDIA), causing further scrambling. See issue 7193. In 5.0-15515 or newer, this can be fixed with "Manual Texture Sampling" in the Graphics Settings -> Advanced menu.
Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
