The circuit is a standard race that consists of running with the cars of up to three opponents on a loop track for at least one lap. This is the main mode of the game. For about the last 4 races of the underground mode, the number of players decreases to only 1 rival and the number of turns reaches up to seven.The Knockout mode is similar to previous Need for Speed ​​titles and consists of "knocking out" the last runner who crosses the starting line on each lap until the last leader of the race stays and wins the race. In the case of the metro, the qualifying sessions have a maximum of three laps for four riders.
Sprint mode is a variant of the Circuit mode, in which competitors run on a point-to-point track instead of looped tracks. These races are generally shorter than the "circuits", so that players must be more cautious in case of mistakes.Drift is the most difficult and technical aspect of the game. The drift mode consists of a player in a short loop track, where the goal is to collect as many points as possible by drifting along the track. The player competes with three other competitors, who appear to accumulate scores with the player during the drift session. The player would be required to beat those scores in order to get the best positions.Bonuses are awarded to players who drift in the outer limits of the runway, drift vertically or drift in a chain (continuous drift by constantly steering the vehicle during the drifts to maintain speed); if the player succeeds in ending a collisionless drift on the sides of the track, the points collected are added to the score, otherwise the points collected are canceled.

Drift mode is the only type of race for which the time required to complete the track does not matter, since players have the freedom to complete the number of laps allocated at their own pace. This may explain the absence of nitrous oxide in this mode because it does not serve any purpose in this situation.
Drag racing is the second most technical form of racing in the game. It involves running against one or three cars on generally straight courses and trying to get the best positions to win. In order to master the Drag mode, players must use good timing and proper reflexes to change gear, redlining, passing and using nitrous oxide boosters. Because the player will put the engine to its limits, the mode gives special importance to monitoring the tachometer during races, which is enlarged and located at the far left of the screen. The steering in this mode is simplified to simply allow you to change lanes, while the computer manages the direction along the lanes, and the player focuses more on maintaining optimum speed for the car.
