Easy code entry
After beating the checklist at the beginning of the game, save the game to make starting new games easier. Also save the game at the very end, before the ending sequence starts. Then, load that game, advance past the FMV sequences, and the codes will already be enabled.

Easy getaway
While the police is chasing your car from behind, slam the brakes, wait for him to run into your car, then slam the car in reverse. If done correctly, the policeman will say that he lost you. Hit the gas to complete an easy getaway.

Another getaway technique that does not expend as much energy as ramming is to use the surrounding traffic. Gently tap the cars toward the direction that your car is travelling. The cops will follow and most often ram the traffic car instead of your car.

The police AI is relatively dumb. Try "hiding" behind a light pole and watch the cops wrap themselves around it. Also, find a wall and try and get it between your car and the police. If you have the skills, turning into an alleyway quickly can also shake off a pursuit. Weaving through traffic generally does not work unless you skin the other cars. For some reason, the police tend to run into stopped cars a lot more frequently. Also, the police barricade cars will remain still if they are not touched. If you can pass through the middle, any police cars that are following will usually hit the barricade, causing one large pile-up.

When pursued by the police, take your vehicle up onto a footpath and stay on it for approximately five to ten seconds. The police will turn around to go in another direction and say they have lost you. This will even work when the police are right on your tail.

In San Francisco, enable the "Invincible" code, then locate the ramps. After the police are on your tail, get to top speed, ramp, and turn sharply. If done correctly, the police will fly over your car at the speed and direction that you were travelling.

A good way to hide from police in San Francisco is to go up to the trolley. If the cops are on one side of it, drive on the other side of the trolly at the same speed. When you get near a turn, go down that road then go down the next road. If done correctly, the cops should not be chasing you anymore.

Begin game play in Miami in survival mode. As the level begins, veer off to the left and drive between the light pole and building. If you look behind your car, two police cars should collide into each other, giving you an extra chance to get more distance from them.

When you are wanted and you see a cop in front of you, drive up behind him. He will see you in his rear-view mirror and turn around to try to get you. If timed correctly, you can try to get the cop to crash into a tree or obstacle to get a great opportunity to get away.

When being chased by the cops and there is a car in the right lane, pull off on the right side of the car on to the sidewalk or the shoulder. The cop should follow you and smash into a street light or hit the car, allowing you to escape.

If you are being chased by the cops, try not to go on to grassy areas because your steering and acceleration are much worse. This makes it a lot harder to escape, especially if chased by more than one cop.

There is a certain way to bump into other cars to slow down the cops. If you are on the left side of the car, lightly tap the left tail light of the car. If on the right, lightly tap the right tail light. If done correctly, the car will spin sideways, making it easier for you to escape the cops.

When being chased by the cops and you want to make a turn, do not turn at the intersection. Instead, drive a little past it on the wrong side of the road. Then, turn towards the curb separating the roads and do a 180 spin and get on the other side of the road. The cops should drive right past you. You can now make your turn and gain a larger head start to escape.

When being chased by the cops and a hill-ramp type of objects appears, drive right up to it until you reach the top. Slowly go down it. The cop will chase you and go flying over you, causing major damage or even flipping his car. If the cop is still alive, back up and do the same thing in reverse. Repeat these step until the police unit is destroyed.

While playing in Miami in survival mode, turn left immediately when you start. Turn until you see a building and a pole. Drive directly between the building and the pole. If done correctly, two cops should slam into each other, allowing you to have an easy getaway.

Drive to a hill that you can jump pretty far going your average speed (86 to 87 mph). Slow down so you do not jump. Do a 180 and hide behind the hill. If done correctly , your pursuers will jump right over you and get very far behind.

Play in Miami and go to a bridge with a cop on your tail. Jump over the bride and the cop will go flying.

When you are pursued and see a police barrier, drive on the footpath or grass. They only block off roads, and if timed correctly, the other police in pursuit will smash into it.

Losing the tail on "Getaway"
Choose San Francisco and travel straight until you get to the end of the street, then make a left. There should be tracks in the middle of the street. Go on the right hand side of the tracks and stop your car when the streetcar appears. The streetcar should hit your car and push it along the street. The police will keep crashing into the streetcar until their car wrecks. if the streetcar bumps you out of the way, chase it and try to get in front of it. Note: In order for this to work, you must travel at top speed until you get to the tracks.

Smart braking
One bothersome feature about the game are the brakes, Once you hit the brakes and come to a complete stop, you go in reverse and do not stop fast enough. This is bad if there is a cop chasing you, or if you need to make a quick stop in an intersection. To brake effectively, without going into reverse, hold [Square] + [Triangle]. Your car will come to a quick stop, and the reverse light will only come on briefly.

Flip your car
To make your car do a flip, find a cop car on its side. Get some distance and ram into the bottom part of the car. If done correctly, your car will flip very high in the air.

Enable the "Stilts" code. Go on any hill and hit the bottom of it to do a wheelie.

Avoiding flips when on stilts
When the "Stilts" code is enabled, be careful when turning. One quick or sharp turn can flip your car on its side, making it impossible to continue on a mission. Take a nice, slow, steady turns to avoid this.

Rear view
Press both the side view buttons at the same time. This is helpful to see where you need to move to make a pursuing cop hit an object.

Easy 360
To do an easy 360 press, hold [Circle] then while your car tires are still smoking. Hold [Left] or [Right] to avoid a police barricade. Try to swerve around them, then head quickly to the other side. If done correctly, the police cars should wreck themselves and stop following you.

Car sounds
Come to a complete, then hold [Triangle] + [Square] to hear a different sound from your car.

Statue Of Liberty
Drive along the Hudson River in New York. Make sure river is on the right side of your car. When you get to the end, where it becomes a corner, press [R2] to look to the right over the water to see the Statue Of Liberty.

Alcatraz island
Go to the north-eastern most part of San Francisco, along the bay. Look on the map to the north in the bay for Alcatraz island.

Better handling
After starting the game, ram the back of your car into a building, or better yet, other vehicles. Make sure only the back of the car is damaged. Do this until the back is very smashed up. If the damage bar turns any other color but green, then it was not done correctly. Doing this will increase handling greatly. Its very useful for getting out of tough situations, getting away from the law, or making a last minute turn.

Another way to improve the handling is to enter the game options and turn off "Auto Handbrake" ever time the game is played. That option always turns back on after the game is quit. Turning off the option makes the car actually handles like a real car.

Easy times in San Francisco survival Get major air in Miami
Enable the "Stilts" cheat. Go to Miami in take a ride mode. Drive straight on the highway where you start. Pass the billboard that says "No thanks just milk" on your left. Turn right on the street after the billboard. Go straight on that street, and at the intersection there will be a hill. Hit it with great speed and you will get major air. Note: Also enable the "Immunity" and "No Police" cheats to make it easier.

Enable the "Stilts" cheat. Go to Miami and keep going north until you see a bridge. Go back a bit to get speed, then gun it to jump the bridge.

Improved times in survival mode
Use anything possible as a barricade. The police AI is "dumb" and will hit anything or do almost anything to get to your car. You can hide behind other cars and lamp posts. Objects such as pay phones and parking meters do not work since cars can drive through them. Try swerving in and out of traffic and stop near or in front of cars and lamp posts. Driving close to traffic or on the "sidewalks" can also be effective if done correctly. Try not to use the "Burn Out" button because it can spin your car out of control after a hit by police cars, making it an easy target to be hit and "wrecked".

Police in replay
Enable the "No police" code and drive around. Select the replay option after crashing or exiting to see what would have happened if the police were active.

Do not get hurt by police or cars
Play the game in carnage mode. Then, use the film director and direct a film of your carnage game. Save the replay. Go to car chases and watch the saved replay. Then, go to take a drive, undercover, or another mod and the police and cars will not hurt you. Walls are still dangerous. If you exit the game, watch the saved replay again and it will be turned back on.
