Graphics are minimal, but neat.
I'll make this clear right at the start. Alarm for Cobra 11: Hot Pursui is a budget title - it will be released in Australia for only $AU29.95 so don't expect the greatest game of all time. Having said that this is one of the better looking budget titles which should provide more then a couple of thrills.

The premise behind the game is simple. When you work for the elite police unit Cobra 11 you are above the law. Burn up the streets in the pursuit of criminals - red lights and give way signs mean nothing to you. All that matters is that you arrest the bad guys whatever the cost.

The in-game graphics.
This game takes place on German high-speed locations including the notorious autobahns and city locations of Paris, London and New York. High speed chases will have you tearing through the streets as you answer the emedgency call. The highways and city streets of Europe are the modern urban combat zones patrolled by Cobra 11. High-speed chases, multiple pile-ups and dazzling stunts are all part of your daily routine.

Another collision.
Single player game modes include Storyline, Mission, Chase and Championship - each of which is self explanatory. The range of cars includes family, sports and performance cars.

Multi-player is also being catered for with head to head racing and the classic pursuit modes available. As you can understand the graphics in this budget title are less then spectacular but as long as the game has a solid frame rate it could still be pleasing to the eye.

Alarm for Cobra 11: Hot Pursuit is due for release in Australia in mid-August through THQ.
