FFS, would publishers please stop using names that they've already used?!
The next "Hot Pursuit" game after "NFS: Hot Pursuit" and "NFS: Hot Pursuit 2" is NOT "NFS: Hot Pursuit" again!
Just call it "NFS: Hot Pursuit 3". Is that really so hard?
At least with sequels to story-driven games, you can understand the reasoning when they leave out the number for fear that people won't buy it if they haven't played the previous installments. (I don't like that practice either, but at least I comprehend it.) Nobody is going to avoid Hot Pursuit 3 for fear of not knowing what happened to the characters in parts 1 and 2, however. This is just dumb.
