Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 is the sequel to Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and the first one to be on the sixth-generation consoles.
The game has two modes, Hot Pursuit Mode & World Racing Mode.
 Hot Pursuit
- Quick Race
- Be the Cop
- Ultimate Racer
 World Racing
- Quick Race
Quick Race & Challenge are the same except Hot Pursuit involves the Police. Ultimate Racer & Championship both consist of an event tree of 30 races, with 2 bonus races that can be unlocked after beating the 30 other races. Be the Cop means you become the cop, the differences are in the Xbox/PC/NGC version you only need to ram the offender, in the PS2 version they must be stopped while your car is nearby.
