I never managed to enjoy computer games that much. Especially with the car games, I always lose the excitement and get bored of playing games on computer. It was based on fake driving and not giving the same pleasure like driving. So I ignored games for very long time.
However, couple of days of I saw the Need For Speed Hot Pursuit in iTunes and I wanted to try it. I knew that I will get bored and delete it in couple of days. But this time, everything is totally different! The game is excellent, I enjoyed playing so much that my batteries finished in one battery (usual it lasts for two days). I know that it is fake driving but the scenario is so great, I did not even think it was boring for a minute.
Now I am very close to drive Bugatti Veyron as a police car and it is not very hard to play on iPhone. If you are getting bored nowadays or could not find a gift for your friend. This can be a very good idea :)
