Summary: The product its self would not play properly in my Windows XP. The game moved so slow, it wouldn't allow me to play the game before it exited and gave me an error. I reduced all the graphics in the setting and put everything on low quality. The game would still run slow and extremely sluggish. It seemed like a really fun game I would have liked but with it not working properly on a regular computer such as mine... I just can't deal.
Summary: The cut scenes are the only good graphics in the entire game... The game play is crappy and as my title says Graphically Retarded... It is one of the most horrible games in the NFS series. For those who play these games a lot, the graphics of NFS Hot Pursuit, were better than this game... I would not recommend buying or playing this game it was a huge let down.
Summary: Microsoft Windows 7 compatability web site says that Underground is compatable... NOT SO! It will run, but you have no control and the graphics look like 1990. I have a monster system with Nvidia 1Gb card and a Gigabyte X58A-UD7 motherboard... Intel i7 2.8Ghz, 12Gb RAM and it still sucks.
Summary: This is a race car game and it does not let you use a pc steering wheel. How stupid is that. You can't steer a car with a keyboard. The game sucks. I have older NFS and other EA games that work great with the steering wheel. I won't waste any more money on EA games.
Summary: If it plays on your machine, then it's a good deal. Like others have mentioned, the game freezes up right after the intro to a white screen of nothing. I've got Vista w/ 4gb ram, tried uninstalling/reinstalling, DirectX diagnostics, all the latest drivers, unplugging my keyboard, nothing helps. I'd return it to EA, but they'd just send me another coaster.
SURE: FLASH, BLING & RIMMS - BUT WHAT IS REALLY AT WORK UNDER THE HOOD?

Summary: Yet another EA release which, gameplay and graphics problems aside, suffers from the bundled DRM scheme: SecuROM with Limited Installations. This is a well known scheme based on a custom-made augmented version of SecuROM 7+, used for over a year now (from BioShock to Mass Effect, Dead Space and Red Alert 3) and it has been proven to offer overall...zero protection from piracy. But, of course, fighting piracy was never amongst its aims.
Summary: I was all excited that finally EA would return to the glory days of Most Wanted: police chases, open world driving, huge map, awesome graphics, great soundtrack...etc. NOT! There is a reason this game is only [...] brand new (PC). It is a rip-off. This game is basically taking the Pro-Street driving engine, which stunk, and trying to merge it with a storyline similar to Most Wanted.
Summary: This game is terrible. I'm not even going to try to make it seem any less so.
My PC was the best that I could buy at the start of the year and can play all
the latest games with no problems. However, this game just keeps lagging. It
will freeze for a couple of seconds, allow me to drive for a few metres, then
lag again. The graphics are average at best when compared to other games released at a
