Did You Know?

Trivia

The PS2 version and PC, GC and Xbox versions of the game were made by two different developers. EA Blackbox (PS2 version) and EA Seattle (PC, GC and Xbox version). With lower review scores given the EA Seattle version of the game due slow pacing and less features than the PS2 version, the EA Blackbox version is considered the superior version of the game. See more »

Goofs

In both versions of Hot Pursuit 2 (EA Blackbox and EA Seattle versions), there are slight inaccuracies with the car models when compared with their real life counterparts. The most significant one is the HSV Coupe. Since the vehicles featured in the game were new during it's time of release, not many official photos of the vehicles existed at the time for the developers to use as reference photos to model the vehicles.

Fun Racing Game
14 July 2006 | by gangstahippieSee all my reviews

Rated E.

I'm surprised at the fairly low IMDb score.Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2 is a very fun and good racing game.The graphics are good and the cars are good as well.Its fun being a cop and chasing baddies.Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2 is a fun little game.Like most racing games there is no real story.You basically race cars to get money to buy new cars to use in a free mode.Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2 is a fun game and I recommend it for racing fans.Although I don't know how it compares to the newer ones.

8/10
