[edit] Modes

The game has two modes, Hot Pursuit Mode & World Racing Mode.

[edit] Hot Pursuit

  • Quick Race
  • Challenge
  • Be the Cop
  • Ultimate Racer

[edit] World Racing

  • Quick Race
  • Challenge
  • Championship

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.
