Need for Speed Underground 2 (Xbox)


Last year, EA took its long-running Need for Speed series in an exciting new direction with the release of Need for Speed Underground, a racing game that focused on making the import tuner scene the star of its arcade-style racing show. The game worked...

Need for Speed Underground (PC)


It's hard to talk about an import car racing game without mentioning the movie The Fast and the Furious. The movie put as much of a spotlight on tricked-out cars as it did on its cast, and the resulting effect caused a huge surge of interest in the...

Of course you really only see these shortcomings while parked. Once you hit 2nd gear everything becomes pretty much a blur of lights and colors, and by keeping everything simple the designers have managed to maintain a fluid framerate throughout the...

Need For Speed Underground 2


Somewhere between Gran Turismo and Grand Theft Auto lies a turf war for the top street racing game on the market. The likes of Need for Speed and Midnight Club battle it out with lesser-knowns like Street Racing Syndicate and Midtown Madness, nudging...

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 Original Still Finishes First

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...

Need for Speed Underground 2


The import tuner scene has literally exploded into mainstream culture, thanks to the success of movies like The Fast and The Furious. Needless to say, it was only a matter of time before the gaming industry followed suit, producing nitro-infused racing...

Overall, Underground 2 does manage to expand on the street racing culture it worked so hard to embody in the first title. Broadening the racing arenas to include a complete city, the number of race types and vehicles significantly increases the number...

NFSU2 is a game that has successfully unleashed the hidden chav in us here in TVG Towers. Its immense thrills and spills through the open-ended city of Bayview is exhilarating, and the culture that is emerging is created in the game to great effect. A...

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.
