Summary: I'm quite gobsmacked to see some of the glowing reviews here for this game - am I playing the same game as those guys?! The only thing you really need to know about Xbox NFS:Underground is that it has the worst frame-rate issues I've ever seen - it struggles to stay in double-figures at the best of times and most corners see the game become so choppy I'm amazed it got released.
Summary: What a load of rubbish Ive never played such a rubbish racing game in my life the graphics are no better than your average PS1 racer maybe even worse. Of all the games i could have got for christmas Why did I choose this game you cant even play custom sound tracks.I never new a 3 inch thick metal gate could stop a 500BHP Nissan Skyline going about 230 mph instantly.
Summary: Who on earth has scored this game 4 and 5 stars - EA employees? What rubbish. No widescreen support. No replays. No damage. Bad framerates. The average framerate is probably 20 fps, and at certain points of the tracks it will dip to below 5 fps. I kid you not. This game shows every sign of being rushed for the xbox. The demo of the PC version runs way faster on my rather average PC.
Summary: c'etait mon premier jeu acheter sur Xbox, j'en avait presque la larme a l'oeil quand j'ai inseré le Dvd magique dans l'antre de la bete noir couverte du X fluo... Les 10 premieres minutes, ce jeu qui s'inspire tres clairement du phenomene fast and furious vous scotche au plafond. Graphisme superbe, rapide, on decouvre le tuning... Les decors sont superbement detaillé, mais tous de nuit...
