I want my Hot Pursuit 2 back, where you couldn't even get wings and body kits to make yourself look like the ricers/tools I see everyday. The style/class was lost when they made Underground 1, and the whole game turned retarded with the successors Underground 2.
agreed. i miss hp2

the ps2 version was gold.

I just didn't like how a 1.8L Civic with an upgraded intake and exhaust could beat a 5.7L GTO in a drag race.

@zacbrain, I downloaded the soundtrack and still listen to it all the time on my iPod.

I had my 1.8L Civic sedan able to out-drag, out-handle and out-stop AI R34 Skylines. I was, quite literally, leaving any other driver in the game in the dust. None of them could come close to touching me...lol. What are the chances of that in real life? Nil. You'd rip the engine out of the engine bay from all the torque before you came close...but omg it was fun.

Lol, that's why I found it annoying that someone could throw 5k into a civic, gto or skyline and they would all perform similarly.

It looks like the studio is closing down and another group will handle the NFS series

I expect another dumb NFS version next year.

They never got this game right, since the first one to the so called last one ,,

If anything,, NFS 2 powned LOL!
