Summary: I bought this game thinking it would be fun. But then I played it a bit, and the game has a lot of problems. It starts off nice and easy, but then leaves you screaming in frustration! The AI is way too difficult! They can crash into a car but then 30 seconds later passes you again. And no matter how much crap you put on your car, you will never pass them. It is so frustrating when during a six lap circuit your opponents pass you at the last second.
Summary: Since the Need For Speed franchise came into the video game world back in the mid 90's, there has arguably been no denying the success of trying to be the fast & the furious. Although it has shown its highs like Need For Speed III did with Hot Pursuit and its sequel Hot Pursuit 2, there also have been some versions with absolute lowpoints as well like Need For Speed Porsche Unlimited, and other smaller versions of the game too.
Summary: Somehow, I like racing games and I was hoping that this game will go over the line. And it's okay with cars and designing your own cars and then racing against other cars. Although, the racing sometimes get boring because you're racing in different races. That part is cool, but I hate the people because they look scary and dark in the background. The arrows are dark enough that you can run into them.
Summary: The graphics on this game are really good. But who wants a Dodge Neon, Impreza 2.5, Lancer ES, Peugot ? Those cars suck monkey balls !! Nissan Skyline GTR R34 or Toyota Supra...these cars are absolute beast. The game gets kinda repetitive though. Like you're doing the same race over and over again SLIGHTLY more difficult each time. Overall it is definitely worth the purchase as we all wait for GT4 to drop in December.
Summary: N4SU is a great game. u can add unlimited customazation to the car. 1 thing i didn't like was the limited variety of cars. i would have liked 2 eventually work up to get a McLaren or a lamborgini or even a BMW but u could only pick from common cars like honda and ford. another con was the sensitivity of the throtte (i had to basicly push the button into the controller to reach a conpetable speed). yet another was the damgage.
Summary: The first thing you will notice about this game is the graphics - they are stunning to a point of being distracting. In fact, they are a little too much for the PS2 engine, and frame rate suffers a LOT at times. The sound is pathetic - I've heard better motor sampling from a toy, but tollerable nonetheless. If you are a fan of the NFS series, this may disappoint. There is no replay function, and the hook to the title is the appearance customization.
Summary: For this review i have decided to delve into the back catalouge and take a trip down memory lane. Need for speed had 6 incarnations before underground , but none of them ever caught my eye , NFS underground revamped the series by cashing in on the popularity of the fast and furious film and the growing popularity of car customisation. Developed by EA black box and published by EA there was a lot riding on the first attempt at home consoles.
Need for Speed Underground (PS2): Good but not great
27 October 2009
Summary: Need for speed underground is a good racing game, the city setting is a great way of accessing races but the city should be more interactive. The modding of cars is fun and hours can be spent on this but the racing soon becomes tedious and some types of race never seem to work properly. X-cross and drift are not well-designed races for the kind of controller used. I like the drag racing feature and the circuts and sprints are exciting on hard mode.

Summary: From the moment that I bought this game I was taken aback by the amazinggraphics. But after a month of playing it (and completing it) I was leftfeeling that graphics were not enough. I weighed up the pro's and cons andcame up short. PROS : graphics, CONS : Lack of depth, annoying tracks withno freedom, lack of styling parts and realsim. This game would have beenbetter with a Vice City or Midnight Club style lay out, where you can gowhere you want.
