Police Car Chase Games - LA Noire

Police chases are a big draw in gaming. There is something about the risk/reward factor that translates very well to an interactive medium. Probably because it’s much better than participating in the real thing. So here’s a list of 10 of the best police car chase games on Xbox Series X/S.

#10 Crew 2

  • Issue: 2018
  • Platform: PS4, Xbox One, PC
  • Genre: Racing

The crew 2 was released in 2018 but didn’t get Police Chase until 2020. Police Chase was a highly requested feature for the game and Ubisoft provided the content fans wanted as part of Year 3 content. Year 3 content included Police cars, sirens and light bars and events with police pursuits. Although the chase events started in 2020 as a live event, they can still be played to this day. Players just need to find the events under the in-game activity menu.

#9 Driver San Francisco

  • Edition: 2011
  • Platform: PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PC
  • Genre: Racing

Driver: San Francisco is one of the best racing games of the PS3/360 era. It’s so good that it still holds up today, hence its inclusion on this list. Driver: San Francisco picks up six months after the events of Driv3r. Players take on the role of FBI agent John Tanner as he tries to piece together a dreamlike world. Driver: San Francisco is perhaps best known for its “shift” ability. The ability allows players to “shift” from the car they are driving to another car they see. Players can switch between cars during missions or roam freely, which really sets the game apart from typical open world games. Driver: San Francisco is available on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC/Mac. Note that the Wii version of the game is actually a completely different game. For Xbox One and Series X/S gamers Driver: San Francisco is fully backwards compatible with higher resolutions.

#7 Watch Dogs Legion

  • Issue: 2020
  • Platform: PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, PC
  • Genre: Action Adventure

watchdogs games are open world games similar to the GTA series with the twist that players can hack pretty much anything they can see. Hack locks, computers, NPC cell phones, traffic lights, pretty much anything. If it runs on electricity, it can probably be hacked into the world of watchdogs† Hacking everything will of course attract some unwanted attention from the police. Which brings us to the excellent and fun police chases in Watch Dogs: Legion. Like it GTA games there is a 5 star wanted system. Unlike GTA, players can hack anything they see to help them escape from the police. It adds an incredibly fun dynamic to something players have done hundreds of times before in other games.

#6 Grand Theft Auto IV

  • Platform: PS3, Xbox 360, PC
  • Genre: Action Adventure

Grand Theft Auto IV is arguably the first open-world game to feature a breathing city. A city where NPCs have their own lives and the city really lives. The intensely realistic Liberty City in GTA IV set the standard for what open-world games should do when mimicking a real place (New York and New Jersey in this case). The realism doesn’t stop there either. GTA IV featured vastly improved shooting and driving mechanics, giving the police the best chases in the series. although GTA V is the most popular game nowadays, GTA IV is perfect for anyone who wants the thrill of car chases through a metropolis like Liberty City.

#5 Forza Horizon 5

  • Issue: 2021
  • Platform: Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC
  • Genre: Racing

It may seem strange to have Forza Horizon 5 on a list of police chase games. After all, the game has no police chases. However, while Forza Horizon 5 has no police chases built into the game, that hasn’t stopped players from creating their own police cars and chasing down rule breakers. There is an active community of players who spend their time online tracking down fellow gamers in their modified police cars. Think of police Bugatti Veyrons, Lamborghinis and Ferraris. To join this ragtag group of law-bringers, just deck your car with a police livery/lights and go on the hunt.

#4 Burnout Paradise remastered

  • Issue: 2008/2018
  • Platform: PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC
  • Genre: Racing

Burnout Paradise was probably the greatest arcade racing game of all time when it was released in 2008. The game was such a resounding success that EA handed over developer Criterion Games the keys to the Need for speed franchisee. The success continued with the excellent DLC packs for the game, including: Police officers and robbers† The Police officers and robbers DLC introduced police chases in the game between real players. One team as the police and the other as the robbers. It really is one of the best online modes in the game. Thankfully, all of the DLC for the original game has been included in the recent remaster, so players can enjoy it to this day.

#3 Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V, the game so popular that they made it three times. No list about police chase games would be complete without this one. In Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online, the possibilities are almost limitless. Players can steal supercars, tanks, intercontinental planes, military jets and more. It’s really the GTA that has everything. That’s why a new version has just been released for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, almost 10 years after the game was originally released. Grand Theft Auto is the most popular franchise to break the law and as the most recent game, Grand Theft Auto V is the climax, at least until GTA VI will eventually come out.

#2 Need For Speed ​​Hot Pursuit Remastered

  • Issue: 2010/2020
  • Platform: PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC
  • Genre: Racing

The hot chase subseries of Need for speed are what many gamers will immediately think of when asked to name a police chase game. However, while the Need for speed series has incorporated many of the ideas that the hot chase games special, there is a great lack of actually hot chase spell. Need for Speed: Hot Chase was released all the way back in 2010 and was itself a reboot of 1998 Need for Speed ​​III: Hot Chase† In 2020, EA released a remaster of the reboot in the form of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered

#1 LA Noire

  • Issue: 2011/2017
  • Platform: PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC
  • Genre: Action Adventure

LA Noire is one of the truly standout games of the PS3/Xbox 360 generation. The game was in a league of its own when it came to the graphics details of characters. It set a standard arguably not matched until the next generation of consoles. The level of detail in the characters’ faces was necessary to show players whether they were lying or not during their investigation. Of course, when investigations went awry, police chases would inevitably ensue, requiring players to catch criminals and solve the crime. LA Noire is one of the most rewarding police chase games because players can follow the investigations all the way through.
