Need for Speed (Arcade) is an arcade alternative release of EA Seattle's iteration of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 developed by Global VR.

Gameplay

Need for Speed (Arcade) features a player-selectable difficulty system which provides easier handling for beginning players or more challenging driving physics, as well as automatic and manual tranmission choices. Six-speaker surround sound and force feedback steering are featured. The game is also linkable with other cabinets, allowing head-to-head competition for up to 4 players, as well as either local-run or national tournaments. [1]

Need for Speed (Arcade) is based on EA Seattle's iteration of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2, although it only has a regular racing mode, with no hot pursuit mode or any police chase involved.

Courses are taken from the base game, including Coastal Parklands, Alpine Trail, Calypso Coast, Fall Winds and Palm City Island. Vehicles include the Lotus Elise, Jaguar XKR, Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R, BMW Z8, Chevrolet Corvette Z06, as well as the Dodge Viper GTS which requires two first place finishes to unlock.
