Highly polished and goes like a rocket!
on 4 January 2004
The need for speed series has been progressively getting better and better. After last years hit NFS: hot pursuit 2 a completely different type of racing has been focused on.
Before it was flash high performance sports cars from the likes of ferrari and lamborghini. Now your task is to obtain an everyday car, for example a volkswagen golf and to win races on underground mode in order to obtain money so that visual or performance related upgrades can be purchased.
Eventually you unlock faster cars such as the toyota supra or mazda rx-7 by competeing in drift, circuit or sprint modes. The best however is drag racing due to the incredibly high sense of speed and choas as you change gears manually whilst avoiding hazards such as traffic or barriers.
I rate underground very highly due to the glitzy, highly polished graphics however the soundtrack isn't to everyone's tastes as it is mostly hip hop, also the main mode could have been longer. Overall i think its a great game and is well worthy of been bought.
