A Letter to the Big “N"

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

This guide is complete.  I am also no longer accepting questions regarding this
game; you're pretty much on your own if you can't find the information here or 
in another help guide from sites like GameFAQs.  As for any other GameShark 
codes, well I just don't feel like putting any more there.  If you would like 
more, go to http://www.cmgsccc.com.  They have the best list of GameShark codes.

With this game, you can't really make a walkthrough for it.  However I did 
my best at trying to produce some kind of strategy guide for it.  It 
covers the basics of the game.

=====================================
I. Game Modes
=====================================

Need For Speed III comes with a few different game modes, ranging from 
Single Race to Hot Pursuit.

============
= Practice =
============

What's the point of explaining this mode.  Race the tracks without the
practice.

===============
= Single Race =
===============

This mode doesn't exactly need any explaining either.  Basically it's a
single race on any selectable track, with an opponent or two.  You get to
select the number of opponents.

==============
= Tournament =
==============

This tournament involves eight races, which you compete for top spot.  You 
are rewarded a certain number of points for whatever spot you finish.

1st place- 8 points
2nd place- 7 points
3rd place- 6 points
4th place- 5 points
5th place- 4 points
6th place- 3 points
7th place- 2 points
8th place- 1 point

If you win the tournament as an expert, the Mercedes CLK-GTR will be 
released/ available.

If you win the tournament as a beginner, the Jaguar XJR-15 will be 
released/ available.

============
= Knockout =
============

This is basically like a playoffs series: The loser is out of the game.  

If you win Knockout as an expert, the El Nino will be released/ available.

If you win Knockout as a beginner, the Empire City is available.

===============
= Hot Pursuit =
===============

This is what the game is all about.  You get to have police try to pull 
you over.  Depending upon the track or the car you are using, the chase 
can really get exciting.  The track that may give you the most trouble, 
would be one with a narrow road and no area off to the side of the road to 
get past the police.  They try just about everything to get you stopped.  
They like to try to fish- tail you off to the side of the road.  The also
use road blocks and lay tire spikes.  If you run over the spikes, you're 
finished.

======================
= Arcade/ Simulation =
======================

It's self- explainable.

======================================
II. The Tracks
======================================

There are several tracks, but you may want to cheat to access them all.  
This section is a little later.

HOMETOWN
3.6 miles
This track is easy.  The only fun turn is the 90 degree turn in town.

REDROCK RIDGE
5.4 miles
Learn the turns, and you're fine.

ATLANTICA
4.9 miles
This track isn't too difficult.  There are only a few sharp turns.

ROCKY PASS
5.5 miles
It'll take a little while to learn the turns and bad spots, but you'll do 
fine.

COUNTRY WOODS
5.2 miles
This track can be difficult.  There are several tough turns.  A good tip
here is to work on your power- sliding.

LOST CANYONS
6.3 miles
This track is definitely one of the most difficult on the game.  You'll 
have to practice on this one.

AQUATICA
5.3 miles
This is a coastline track with many, many curves.  Once again, power- 
sliding is key.  By the way, watch for the Titanic.

THE SUMMIT
6.4 miles
This track is very difficult with the snow.  You will need some practice 
for this beast.

EMPIRE CITY
4.6 miles
There are several columns in the road in this city- based track.

CAVERNS
Watch out for the obstacles.  You can't use this track in the Hot Pursuit 
or Single Race modes.

THE ROOM
A track in a kid's room.  Same stipulation as above.

AUTOCROSS
A dirt track with some high jumps.  Same stipulation as above.

SPACE RACE
A track in a space station. Sam stipulation as above.

SCORPIO- 7
A huge aquarium.  Sam stipulation as above.

======================================
III. The Cars
======================================

Car Name             Acc.   Speed  Braking  Handling  Overall Rating

Ferrari 355 F1           8    9       9       9           9
Italdesign Nazca C2      9   11      11       8          10
Ferrari 550 Maranello    9   12      10      10          10
Lamborghini Diablo SV   11   15       9       8          11
Jaguar XJR-15           13   10      15      15          13
Mercedes CLK-GTR        15   12      13      12          13
El Nino                 15   15      15      15          15

=======================================
IV. Tips
=======================================

There are really only two tips I could give: practice on a couple of the 
tracks, and work on your power- sliding.

    - There are many, many text editors out there (even completely free), but
      this is certainly one of the absolute best editors out there.  Also,
      be sure to support the software developer(s); they did a lot of hard
      work on this.
