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. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Table of Contents -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- I. Game Modes II. The Tracks III. The Cars IV. Tips V. General Codes VI. GameShark Codes VII. Credits ===================================== 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.
