I think nfs porsche was best

I agree, NFS HP2 was the best one, the killing shot (at least for me) was NFS Underground...eww.

Can't get it to work. Missing some files when trying to play the game. Install.bat won't install because of "Illegal command: arj." - what to do?

Anyone else have the problem where they can only go backward and not go forward? I'm running Windows Vista on a 32-bit Dell Model PP31L laptop.

The game that started a legend. My favorite was NFS Hot Pursuit 2 (2002)
