Need the Speed, 7 Jan. 2005
Need for Speed Underground was released more than a year ago, it wasn't the best game in the world but it was still good. Recently, EA games, have unleashed their fury, after countless efforts to create a monster game, they have finally released a proper classic. Need for speed underground 2!!!!!!
The game starts when this 'woman' named Rachel, begins talking about the street racing events being held. Then you find yourself in Rachel's really sweet car. You are then given a choice. You can either go back to your garage or do a couple of races. Lets just say you decide to go and take part in some races.
There are a number of courses including, Sprint, Drift, Drag, Circuit, Street x and URL (underground racing league). You can participate in all of these races in multiplayer. If you enjoy customizing cars then you can customize whichever car you've unlocked in career mode and then race them in multiplayer.
A great new feature EA have included with the game is being able to explore the city and do what ever race you like. It's a tiny bit like GTA except your car has more features to it.
All in all it's a fast and furious driving game where you can customize your car with nitrous oxide and put the pedal to the metal.
