Uncensored & Restored Soundtrack


Current version: 1.01
Release date: April 6th, 2022

Hello there. Thanks for downloading my mod!

With this mod, every single song in the game will be their full, unedited and/or uncensored versions. It always bothered me how some of them get cut off so suddenly, especially the rap and hip-hop ones. As a bonus, some of them are straight from the newly remastered releases, such as Rise Against and The Bronx. All songs were sourced from 320kbps .mp3 files for max quality.


  • 1.00: First release
  • 1.01: Hotfix for "Cirrus - Back On A Mission" where it had nearly 3 minutes of silence after the song ended.


  • Download the .7z archive and extract it into your game's directory. If you can't open .7z archives, simply download the program, it's free.
  • You'll see 2 folders, pfdata and speech. Again make sure they are in the root of the game's install folder.
  • Now, rename or move your SDATA folder somewhere else.
    That's it. Now go check in-game, you'll notice Riders On The Storm will take a bit longer to start but that's just how the official remastered version Snoop Dogg's compilation album has it.
    Please report any issues regarding volume, perhaps crackling, or songs that don't skip. Personally I do have some minor crackling in Capone - I Need Speed but only when using my speakers (I'm on a 32" TV) but the crackling is gone once I use my headphones. If you also find the same issue, again, please report.

@Lemonov I feel you, I was divided on that myself. I shall try to update this once I have the time. Thanks for the feedback!

This mod desperately needs OG timing of Riders on the Storm to be perfect. Even a crude solution would be better. Great otherwise

@Ariso Glad you liked it! When I learned how the songs truly are, I just had to put them in the game. I did this years ago but just recently cared enough to share, thought people would like it and I'm glad you guys are.

I can finally listen LAX In its intended way. Neat stuff

Yeah, I kind of agree now as well. But the version included here is also higher quality, and I have no editing skills to make it match the original. It still feels so off to me.
But I'm glad you enjoyed the mod though, thanks for the feedback!
