From Electronic Arts:
Hit the streets in one of eleven supercars and race them on a variety of tracks in a variety of cars. The game supports one or two players with a modem or serial connection, or up to eight players over a LAN. There's an all-new Hot Pursuit mode wherein you scorch the streets on either side of the law: elude the fuzz as a speeding motorist or enforce justice from a police patrol vehicle. You also can download more cars and tracks from the Need for Speed III Web site. This game supports hardware acceleration, but you can play it software-rendered too. In the demo version, you race against the other cars (no Hot Pursuit mode).
