I'd like to start a list of all the little things I've noticed are different between v1.0 and v1.1.

- Improved framerate
- Assault team at roadblocks
- Cops are overall tougher opponents
- Censored "sh*t" in Fever by Dust Junkys in the "weapons being unloaded in Vegas" FMV.

I was playing PAL v1.0 and now I'm playing NTSC v1.1, so if anybody who plays NTSC v1.0 takes issues with any of these things, please say so; it's possible some of these will be regional differences. I'll get around to playing NTSC v1.0 someday.

Please contribute if you can!

I also noticed something weird about this game too.

I have 2 sets of " Driver 2 ", the disc with red background, and the " Greatest Hits" disc that has a silver background

In the Rio mission, where you have to run the hitman off the cliff or wreck his car by bumping it. The difficultly is ALOT easier on the silver disc version. Usually how I beat that level is I try to in front of the "Hitman" car and let the car ram my car until the damage is done. ............... Try doing that on the red disc version. Everytime he would hit my car, it would either fly into the wall / tree/ or another car + my car would be " wrecked"

I recently came to this conclusion because I finally got my hands on the "Driver 2 " game I won on a auction, ( Red disc version ) and was doing great up until that hitman mission, and didn't remember it being that damn hard, when it was time to restart the level, I switched the disc to my " Silver disc, greatest hits " and noticed the difference.

So the improved frame rate, tougher cops, etc. are the changes you noticed in the NTSC 1.1?
