A splendid return to the series, as it incorporated realistic police pursuits into the formula once again. Unfortunately after this came the dismal and unforgivable downward turn that was the Need For Speed Underground series.

Undoubtedly my favourite entry in the series. Back in the days before the modifying scene came along and ruined it and Ferrari stil allowed EA to use thier cars. Now its just a mess really.

This is what Need for Speed should be like. Driving the finest cars in unique enviroments. Who cares about realism, open world and modifying? There are other games series that will do those much, much better.

Are you listening EA?

The only Gran Turismo game that actually has customization is GT5.

Are you calling simple (one way only) model change without possibility of even changing the color a customization? Good joke, pal.

AFAIK, this is one of the very few games out there post-1994 that have better graphics on the console versions than the PC one.

Uploads complete for now.

Haven't unlocked the normal CLK GTR yet, and I'm not gonna use the NFS Edition to fill in.

There might be a couple more prop vehicles in some other tracks (fairly sure there's at least one fire truck in the forest tracks, for example), but I think this is good enough for the moment.

Very sure I got every traffic vehicle in the game.

carcrasher88 US (22)

Also, for those who don't know, there are only 5 police cars in the PlayStation 2 version of this game.

Four of the cars are unlockable twice, as they have to be unlocked for use in Be The Cop mode, and then again to be used as a racer in other game modes.

The CVPI, on the other hand, is unlocked for You're The Cop (known as Be The Cop in other versions), but has to be unlocked for it to be available as a racer.

Those vehicles are the CVPI, M5, SVT Cobra R, Z06, and Murcielago. The other cop cars on this page are only available in the EA Seattle developed version for PC, GameCube, and Xbox.

Also, the NFS Editions of every car in the game (except for the M5 and Z8, as there are no NFS versions of BMWs in the game) look different between versions.

For example, the PS2 NFS version of the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is yellow with black and white decals (including a completely blacked out rear), inspired by the C5R race car, while the PC/GC/XBX NFS version is painted orange with black tribal decals.

We need to add the NFS versions of all the cars.
*Also. The two firetrucks from National Park.

I personally preferred the pc , GameCube, and Xbox version, the physics was even better and more better, graphic wise also better and more po,ice cars choices than the ps2, I felt sorry for ps2 owners at that time because they never got to experience the game the same as the other versions

I'm afraid not. The graphics in the PS2 version are MUCH better. I've played both, and I'd take the PS2 version all day, every day of the week, every week of the month, etc.

Physics wise I don't remember a difference.

PS2 version was amazing. I still play it today. The only thing the PC port had going for it was mod support

Judging by the pictures I've seen the PS2 version has cooler NFS Edition paintjobs, dunno if the rest of the game is better too.

The Mediterranean tracks appear to take place in Greece, due to the Greek signs and ruins.

The PS2 version of the game is the definite one! Better graphics, better car models and textures, better track detail and layouts, the exclusive Desert tracks, better pursuits and physics. The Xbox, GC and PC versions had a 0.5 second delay for the controls and that applies to crashes even, making grinding against a wall look silly. PS2 everyday man. Also the firetrucks are missing from the page

Every track (except for the Mediterranean tracks, which take place in Greece) in the game takes place in the US due to the traffic driving on the right and US MPH speed limit signs are present.

-Speed signs are a developer oversight most likely.
-Many US games don't used other driving laws per country due to the players wouldn't think to drive that way. (Test Drive Brotherhood Of Speed did this as well AFAIK for an example.)

But I'm talking about the PS2 version. That was developed in Canada. The Greek tracks never used US speed limit signs. Also, the "Alpine" tracks are most likely in the Alpine climate, not the European Alpine mountain range.
