Need for Speed Underground 2 is the sequel to the best selling console game of 2003 and builds on the original hugely.
First off, the game is no longer menu driven as racers can now drive around a fictional city picking up races to fulfill a contract or races just to gain money.
The money can then be spent at a variety of places including Graphics shops (Paint / Vinyl / Decals etc), Specialists shops (Nydraulics / Neons), Body Shops (Spoilers / Roof Scoops / Rims etc) and at performance shops (Engine / Suspension / Turbo etc)
Then you are ready to race more and there are plenty of races to compete in, including StreetX (best described as racing on the drift tracks and its no holds barred), Drag Racing, circuit racing, sprint racing and also the previously mentioned drift races. There is also the new URL (underground racing league) races which consist of a number of circuit races.
Other racers can also be raced by driving close to them and pressing up on the D-Pad (much like flashing your light in midnight club 2). These races reward you with small cash but can sometimes help in getting unique parts for your car.
Overall - N4S-UG2 is a huge overhaul from the first Underground and isnt your typical sequal.

the best need for speed out of the series, just bought another copy of this classic for my 360..

need for speed will never be the same again, shift, shift 2, hot pursuit, pro street, nfs is no longer a "street racing game" as none of them come anywhere near to this classic.

the developers should listen to people like us and realise we want another game like this !!

much fun was had with this

rip need for speed....

Bought this as I used to have it on PC and loved it to bits. It's not quite the same love affair on Xbox 360 as it has strange control configurations that cannot be changed, but gameplay is good and so are the cars and sounds.

I bought it for one of the kids and he never bothered to thank me for it, despite specifically asking for this antiquated version of it. I'm guessing I'd have heard from the ungrateful sod if it wasn't ok?

i thought i was gonna love this game as the first one was brill!! i like all the races but the driving towards the races are just a waste of time. the selection of cars are ok but i thought there would be some supercars to unlock at the end such as ferrari, porsche or some other big names but they made the best car the subaru impreza!!! the upgrades dont really make any difference to your car but in the graphics shop the vinyls you can get look really cool but it takes some time before you unlock them so in the end the driving and the graphics are good, but really everything else in the game is just average but i would still recommend this game if you wanted a good driving game.

Well this is a very popular game, due to the franchise and advertising hype. It's a pretty good game to start with but falls down in long term gameplay. The career mode is the main game, you basically start off with a stock car win races to get cash to tune it up and get it looking decent. There is fun to be had changing the car in terms of visual customisation choosing colours, spoilers, alloys etc and becoming your own car designer. As you progress through you only have room for about 6 cars in your garage, 1 problem is that you can only earn enough money to really tune about 4 of them fully. Once you tune all the cars to the max they handle and perform almost the same, meaning you can stick with 1 car all the way through!
To complete the game you don't even have to complete all the races, about 70% will do, but you can select the other races after. However once you complete it, you won't probably bother to go through the whole career mode again. You can choose to do a quick race and choose your type of race from the start as well i.e. drift,drag, circuit etc. Here you can select your career mode cars, plain stock, or modify any of the cars as much as you like and choose them to race. Once the modifying fun runs out you won't play it much, but it is good fun while it lasts. Good graphics, sense of speed, pretty cool music and it is a big game. Depending how much cruising you do it can take a while to complete. One for race fans, and those with xbox live especially. 4 stars to start but novelty soon wears off.

well what can i say!
i loved the first one. then when i heard there was a sequal i was over the moon! especially when i heard you could roam about the city in different parts and find races in the city.
when i first got this i thought it was wonderful, not a great deal of cars to choose from but you know you work up to the better ones or so i thought. To be honest the cars didnt get much better at all, i completed the game with the same car i originally bought as the upgrades don't differ per car they make the same amount of difference and all the cars end up being the same speed.
The new variety of races is good can't fault it however if you have it on easy it can be a bore!.
There are Five stages in all and i thought there would be more to be honest. i finished this game within 1 week and thats not because i am sad and have nothing else to do just because there isnt much too it. To me it feels un-finished!, just when i thought there was more of a storyline it said there are no more races in the world for you to complete and everythings unlocked. However when i went back into it i still hadn't managed to unlock wide body kit!
i wouldn't buy this i would just rent bit of waste i am afraid!
