Need for Speed Underground (GameCube)


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...

Need for Speed Underground 2


The original Need for Speed Underground was one of the better racers last year (and also one of the best selling ones). With the sequel, EA has decided to make a wide open road connected by highways and other roads. Does the formula work? Well, the...

NFSU2 is by no means a bad game. It’s just that the lack of car damage and limited multiplayer put it below other games in the genre. However, as racing games are not exactly abundant on the Gamecube, if you’ve grown tired of Mario Kart and F-Zero,...

Need for Speed Underground 2 GBA


If you can't fit a bottle of nitrous in your pocket, then EA's got the next best thing in this awesome pocket racer.

Nice graphics and solid control ; Customize your cars just like the console versions ; Challenging races toward the end

Traffic seems to collide with you at bad times ; Drag and Drift modes a bit too easy ; Horribly loud and annoying tire screeching during Drift mode

Need for Speed Underground 2 Review for the XBOX


Staying with the pack.

Several interesting race types; Lots of customization; Explore the big city

And just waste time driving; Twitchy A.I.; More ads than a NASCAR race

I hope you don't mind being blitzkrieged with ads, because NFSU2 is thick with sponsorships. Some of them make perfect sense (BilsteinShocks and Auto Zone, for example), but ads for restaurants and financial planninggroups takes the product placement...

Need for Speed Underground 2 Xbox Review


There are three types of car people in this world: people who don't like cars, people who like cars and then people who like to modify cars. Cue Need for Speed Underground 2, packed full with more handle bars than you can shake a stick at as well as...

The aesthetic look of your car is also important in this game, what else can you do with all those winnings you have mustered up through the game? This is split into all of the various different sections of the car, with some special unlockables. The...

Need for Speed Underground 2


The sequel to last year's best selling title is upon us. Does it deliver as well as its suprising predecessor?

City-based racing environment is giant and impressive; great Control; excellent race variety; solid online play (especially via Xbox Live); new upgrade systems add value

City often feels empty; events are placed haphazardly; voice acting and story elements are laughable; sense of speed diminished slightly, no custom soundtrack support in Xbox version

Need for Speed Underground Xbox Review


he venerable Need for Speed franchise has certainly churned out some hits in the past. Need for Speed Hot Pursuit was arguably one of the best driving games of its time, giving racers the chance to speed around miles of fairly deserted roads in dream...

EA also saw fit to save us from another street racing event – wrecking your car as you get a turn wrong. While you can crash and this is usually captured on slow-mo camera, the cars themselves never become damaged. It’s nice that we can drool over the...

Need for Speed Underground Review


With the popularity of movies like The Fast and the Furious and some solid game titles (including the Midnight Club series), this nighttime racing culture is starting to really reach the mainstream. EA has done a pretty damn good job of capitalizing on...

A few moderately big shortcomings aside, Need for Speed: Underground is a solid racing game with an easy learning curve, arcade-like racing, online play, great graphics, and a distinct style. Its lack of track variety got on my nerves, but there's...

Need for Speed Underground


The latest game in the Need for Speed franchise revs close to the redline.

Great looking game with nearly unlimited visual customization options ; Some excellent fast-paced tête-à-tête street-racing ; Drag racing is a lot of fun

Too little variety in the tracks ; Not enough ability to customize the actual performance of your car ; Lack of four player support

Expert review by:

Need for Speed: Underground Review


Shift into the down low.

NFS: Underground is an uneven mixture of gorgeous graphics, upgradeable street racing vehicles, variety of race modes, unique customization, lack of opposition, repetitive tracks, and no law enforcement presence. Somehow they have even managed to...

Players become complete street racers by perfecting skills in each event by nailing the perfect shift in drag racing and by putting their street cred on the line, racing through the city streets at all hours of the night. Prove you belong in the elite street racing circles, work your way up the underground rankings and take on the best of the best in each discipline.
