3.0 out of 5 stars In need of more., 15 July 2005
This review is from: Need For Speed: Underground 2 (Xbox) (Video 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.
