Need for Speed Underground 2
Game Over Online
8 December 2015
Excerpt: 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 titles that celebrated the modified car...
Excerpt: Ooh, how excited were we when we heard this game was on its way, dear reader... Loud, shiny cars to be driven about an urban environment with a devil-may-care attitude and deafening music to boot. Erm, just another normal day in Anytown, UK then, surely...
Conclusion: While all of this sounds exceedingly negative, it's not. The game is a quality title with a lot to offer those interested in modifying a vehicle to their hearts desire and taking that very personal ride out into the night for some no-holds-barred racing.
Excerpt: Apart from the initial intro movie in the first NFS title, there really wasn’t much of a story in the game. Underground 2 attempts to change that within the career mode, trying to provide you with a backstory and a reason to take to the streets in your car.
Excerpt: Genre: Racing Publisher: Electronic Arts Developer: Electronic Arts Release Date: November 15, 2004 Buy 'NEED FOR SPEED UNDERGROUND 2': Xbox | GameCube | GBA | PC | PlayStation 2 The Need for Speed series has come a long way since the original debuted nearly a decade ago.
Conclusion: The one thing that impresses me most about NFSU2 is how addictive it is. Whether playing online or offline, you will be in for some great experiences. I must say that through this game I have found that arcade racing is back to its full potential with this game.
Conclusion: NFSU2 manages to be highly addictive and surprisingly deep without really doing anything ground breaking. The cars look well-modelled and shiny but are far from the most detailed this generation.
Pros: Amazing amount of possible modifications., The cars look great., Excellent feeling of speed., Strangely addictive – you get a nice mixture of races., The cars’ engines sound great.
Cons: The game structure is a bit daft., It’s always dark, or dark and raining., Like all racing games, it can feel repetitive., Sometimes difficult to pick out dingy corners., Badly flawed online mode should have been much,, better., No custom soundtracks., Is this what the NFS series is really about?
Conclusion: Driving games have changed over the years and it's not just about your skill behind the wheel anymore, it's about the whole package. You need to look the part as well as drive it. Need for Speed Underground 2 boasts more cosmetic upgrades, more challenges and more driving. this is a good thing.
