Trivia

Development

GameCube and Windows versions were in development, but eventually cancelled. The Xbox version was the core version. The PS2 version was developed at a later stage and ran into trouble because a lot of the content was tuned especially for the Xbox version and never ran on the RenderWare engine on the PS2 before. The developers took a different approach and dropped everything to try and write new technology for the PS2 version. As the game was late, there was a lot of pressure from publisher SEGA and the shipped PS2 version did not run as well as the Xbox version.
