Car from Underground!

Yep, exact same model. In fact, it was not only reused in Underground and Underground 2, it was also turned into a taxi in both games.

Though, the taxi from HP2 reappeared in Underground 2 along side the Impala taxi, though it looks a bit smaller in UG2 than it does in HP2.

Then again, all this model reuse makes a lot of sense, since the PS2 version was developed by EA Black Box, as a part of EA Canada, unlike the PC/GC/XBX version that was developed by EA Seattle, a studio that was shut down soon after the release of HP2, so the traffic models seen in that version weren't reused.

I did like the traffic on those versions though. Such a shame they weren't re-used.

I agree, it is a shame.

Would've been interesting if EA Black Box was allowed to use those models along with the ones that debuted in the PS2 version. Traffic would have been more diverse.

Yea. Maybe it could be modded?

PC to PS2, probably only if you're using an emulator. PS2 to PC, though...that could probably be done.

And probably easier too. But would you have to add in more AI so you could have them all?
