Gorgeous. Holy damn, does this game look good ; Solid driving physics that can stand up to all comers ; Plenty of variety in car builds and racing. Lots of stuff to do

You might be turned off by the ads ; Some sketchiness with the keyboard controls ; Other, very minor problems

There is no better street racer available now.

The controls are responsive; the cars respond tightly. You can avoid tight turns and other cars very well, without wanting to destroy your controller because it didn't respond on time. The only problem that can get in the way of game play is the poor...

Product Specifications

Underground breaks from the super-car tradition of its predecessors and takes a more down-to-earth tack with its cars. You won't find any Porsches or Lamborghinis in this game. Instead, you'll take ordinary, entry-level to midrange vehicles and customize their look and performance with off-the-shelf modifications, making your ride truly yours. You'll take your baby Underground, racing in the dark of night against others who also treat their vehicles as members of the family.
