Thank you.

This is how police chases happen in the UK. Didn't you know that?

#6 Posted by Jahbu (21 posts) -

lol thats some funny shit...I have not idea how to explain that.

#7 Posted by EpicSteve (6495 posts) -

Something they need to put in the actual game!

That scene from the first Professor Layton game reenacted with cars.

#9 Posted by psylah (2182 posts) -

This had to be put in on purpose, no way this could be a bug. It's too good.

Magic.

@Dietomaha: Before each race in Need for Speed: Most Wanted, there is an in engine cut scene that plays. Although they entirely use game assets, cool filters and physics are applied to make them look surreal. This explains the "cop wheel", which is in the video before one of the pursuit races. There is another neat one where all of the cars are floating hundreds of feet above the city - pretty neat!

I need to see this in action:

Holy shit Criterion, you magnificent bastards!

That seems like an inefficient, yet hilarious strategy for cops to take out street racers.

How is copwheel not the focal point of this game's marketing, reviews, box art, title, etc.?

Thank you sir. That's pretty awesome. It would be even more awesome if you could get access to that stuff in a seperate mode as an unlockable or something...DLC maybe?

...I'm sorry, Forza Horizon. You don't have cop wheels.

This is a fantastic question.

Another question is, how badass is Criterion, that they can just put a copwheel in their game and act like it's no big deal? All they had to do is say "By the way, copwheel.", and they would have dominated the holiday season in sales. "WHO-lo 4?", we'd ask.

Criterion Don't Care.

YOU FUCKER THAT'S WHAT I WAS REACHING FOR!

Cop Wheel has improved my opinion of Most Wanted. Cop Wheel is also the video game character I'd most like to party with.

O-car comin'!

This game would be a million times better if the Cop Chase events actually had cop car wheels, tornados and pyramids.

Edit: this is another event intro video they made

#28 Posted by Dietomaha (112 posts) -

And flapjacks! Also, hookers!

#29 Posted by MikkaQ (10329 posts) -

So this is what they got when Criterion sent their interns to Japan for research, eh? Not bad at all.

Hurricane Coptrina?

#31 Posted by psylah (2182 posts) -

What the hell! I hadn't expected this NFS game to be so lighthearted and less self-serious.

#32 Posted by GS_Dan (1406 posts) -

Fucking. Awesome. This game just became a necessary purchase.

#33 Posted by LobsterVendetta (116 posts) -

Having played games like Driver: San Francisco, it kind of disappoints me that these are just cutscenes and not actual in-game scenarios.

#34 Posted by Dietomaha (112 posts) -

Yeah, just keep that in mind. You can't actually play with the CopWheel(tm) or low-grav cars or any of the other nonsense, unfortunately :(

#35 Posted by bs000 (2 posts) -

Do you want to see them all?

Whirling Cop-dervishes?

I'd like to imagine that all the pre-race visuals in this game are the result of a massive fever dream created by your avatar. The cop chase sequences are especially hallucinatory.

#38 Posted by j3ffro919 (243 posts) -

I have a new nightmare.

Those police cars were made with the remnants of Voltron.
