Two different versions of the NFS:HP2 were produced. The Xbox, GameCube and PC version were developed by EA Seattle, a subsidiary of EA Canada, while the PS2 version was developed by the newly acquired Black Box Games in Vancouver, B.C. Canada. While there are many similarities in overall design and theme, the two versions have a wide range of differences, including:

  • Different car modelling and versions of cars.
  • Different tracks, and large differences in track design.
  • Different physics model and handling characteristics.
  • Different menu system and in-game HUD interface.
  • Different features, such as the PS2 'Zone Camera' system.

The PS2 version is widely held to be the superior game, with that version drawing 9/10 from most reviews, while the PC/GC/XBox version generally pulls 7 or 8 from 10.
