Need for Speed: High Stakes

Need for Speed: High Stakes


Need for Speed: High Stakes (also known as Need for Speed Road Challenge in Europe) is the sixth installment of the Need for Speed series, and was published by Electronic Arts in 1999. It features a large amount of high performance vehicles, exotic cars and law enforcement cruisers in North American and European locations. High Stakes added a new tournament mode titled High Stakes, as well as two new pursuit modes, Getaway and Time Trap.

The game also features a simple damage system – in High Stakes mode, players can spend their career earnings in order to fix any damage to their car after races.

While graphically similar to the previous game in the series, Hot Pursuit, High Stakes had a number of small improvements including the addition of driver models to the cars.
